Community Break Box #2: 2001 Fleer Platinum

Getting right into it, here’s the video for Box 2 in the Community Break – 2001 Fleer Platinum

How’d we do?
Well, on this box things went basically according to plan.  We didn’t get any super rookies, and unfortunately for the team the The Mojo Beardy there were no Pujols or Ichiro rookies to be found.  Has my streak of luck already come to an end?  I’m not so sure.  At least we got everything the box promised us.  Here’s  a pictorial breakdown.

The gloss on the reprint cards make them look a little weird to me.

The Campanella/Berra card is numbered out of 1000 and will be going to Night Owl.  The Yankees were the unpaid team so they are now considered unclaimed which means there’s no need to random it off after all.

Really almost no difference at all. Foil around the ball or the box surrounding the name would be nice.

I went through the stacks to make sure there weren’t any other ones hiding that I missed, but there was not.  Both the Smoltz and the Hudson are /201.  Considering the checklist, we could have done much much worse in this department.

It says National Patch Time, but it's a jersey. I have to say I don't mind, do you?

Great looking pinstripe of a great player on a just pretty nice looking card.  I think we could have done worse on the hit as well.  Congratulations, Damon!

Up for grabs

Lastly, here are the dual team cards that will potentially be randomed off.  Per my originally stated rules, the cards will go to the team without a hit.  If both/neither have a hit, it will be randomed amongst all claimed teams.  We know that the Orioles have a hit, but the Blue Jays may have something waiting in the wings (I’m not tipping my hand one way or another, even though I have the answer).  I’ll deal with these after all the boxes are posted.  If you want to give up your claim on a card, let me know in the comments section.  There was a Rockies/Marlins dual, but nobody took the Marlins, so it’s all hiflew all the time there.  The duals aren’t in the breakdown below, in case you were curious.

Next on the docket is the Fleer Authentix box, which sort of started it all up.  I had a lot of fun opening that one.  Check back Tuesday night to see if you like it as much as I did.  And (hopefully if I get my act together), check back tomorrow for the start of our Crown Royale Hockey contest.
