Community Break Box #7: 2005 Fleer Showcase

Well, I’m said to say we’ve come to the end of the line of this Community Break.  I hope everyone out there had as good a time watching as I did opening.  But before we wrap this thing up officially, I have one more box to “showcase.”  2005 Fleer Showcase, that is.

How’d we do?
Really, really well all around.  This is the third or fourth box where we beat the stated odds in a big way, and I couldn’t be happier about the results.  I think the inserts, while not incredibly varied, were at least frequent considering it’s a 20 pack box.  I think that this was probably my favorite box out of all of them.

A whole lot of these measure of greatness cards and a couple parallels.

Yup, Torii Hunter shows up as our parallel once again.  I wonder if that’s supposed to be some sort of sign.  He’s numbered to 99.  As is Ted Williams, which was a nice little surprise.

Oddly numbered and oriented autos

The box promises one legacy auto and we got three.  I love Fleer.  And we even got the Expos/Nationals into the mix.  No one claimed the Rays, so the Crawford is for trade.  But, that’s not all!


If you’re going to get relic cards, you can’t hope for much better player selection than this.  Mauer was just hitting the scene and is basically the best “Wave of the Future” relic you can find in the box.  No one claimed Twins, so this is for trade as well.   Then, you have that incredible Ortiz patch card #2/50.  So, TJ, I think that card cements the Pujols triple jersey from the last box in Mojo’s stack.  If you guys remember the Paul Pierce patch we got from the Timeless Treasures tin Panini sent us, this is on the same level of awesome.  And it happens to be another Boston player.  Just fantastic.


And there you have it.  Your final totals are at the bottom here.  I’m glad some of the teams didn’t get claimed since they were kind of sparse.  We were able to get 10 of you guys hits, which I love to see.  I’m sorry it couldn’t be everyone, but you can’t say the over-loaded boxes didn’t try!  I’ll have one more post where I random the few cards left to random and then I’ll get all this stuff packed up.  This weekend is filled with wedding oriented activities, so I won’t be able to start stuffing bubble mailers until next week sometime.  Once again, if you don’t want the doubles for whatever reason, let me know and I’ll pull them from your stacks, otherwise you get it all since I don’t need it.

Thanks to everyone for making this so much fun.  Hopefully I can squeeze in another one before the year is through.
