Wrap Up Time

The AREA 40 megabreak has now come to a close. I must say it was more of a daunting task than I imagined but still a ton of fun!  Hundreds and hundreds of packs later and we have ended up with 351 hits.  Kudos to our winner Adam Sanders who almost nailed it on the head!

Sorting is now complete and packaging is next. I hope to start mailing next week.  I thought a good way to wrap this up might be to share some of the best hits and where they are headed.  Everyone that signed up will receive a package and I'm proud of that!  Buckle up for the top 15 imho that are headed into the blogosphere!

 A double header of hit king autos. Rose 1 is heading to GTT and the HOF is bound for Corky
 A beautiful May's that is going to Ryan G
 Jedi Jeff scores the Lopez
 Dickey will be found with the Lost Collector
 This tennis gem will be served up to Tim B
 Rock and Roll all night...Paul is going to Night Owl and Gene is bound for Raz
 Might belongs to James L
 Oh Chloe. She didnt quite make my cut so Daily Dimwit scores this one
 Gavin scores the Cubbies plate
 Gregory is grooving with this relic
 Brandon L scores the triple relic via random
 Gavin take at seat at the bar. The Herman is yours
 AJ scores the RIVERA. I almost kept him but had other cards to keep
 The final card I decided to release is now going to GCRL
A stunning Lange is now the property of Jafronius

Now to finish this off...here are the cards I decided to keep

 This relic from AHS was just too cool
 Sorry AJ but had to keep this beauty
 Couldn't let this tennis quad go
 Thought the Ham was pretty swell
 A truly non negotiable keep BROTHER
 Had to keep Handsome Harley
 No Ali in boxing but I liked this quad
 Shes not leaving Hazel Green
 The King
This may be my favorite of the whole break. A super long shot of one of my childhood favorites!

I'll save my goodbyes for the final post once I have everything in the mail! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

  6. This is awesome and so incredibly generous. Can't argue with keeping the Gehrig! What a remarkable card!

    And thank you so much for the Yankees - the Dickey and Rivera are awesome. Very excited for both heading my way, and they will both have a permanent place in my collection.

  16. Wowza. Those are some epic pulls there. That Sharapova is sweet! So is the Hogan/Beefcake. I think my favorite is that Jackie Robinson jersey card. Love the photo that Topps chose. Happy New Year to you too! I'll save my goodbye for your final post.
