Cardboard Collections Fleer Group Break Results: Cardinals (Pujols) and Expos (Vlad Guerrero)

Colbey of Cardboard Collections hosts fantastic and cheap group breaks. I saw my chance to land some sweet Pujols cards (and maybe even a hit, perhaps), and jumped in on the Cardinals in his recent all-Fleer break of mid-2000s products. The other major attraction to the break was that 2004 Fleer Platinum was on the menu, and I'm attempting to put that set together. I grabbed the Expos - based solely on Vlad Guerrero - as my second team and watched every second of every video of the break. What I got will now follow.


My big hit of the break, a sweet Vlad jersey swatch from the aforementioned 2004 Fleer Platinum. Thankfully I decided to pick up the Expos!


Next up, some cool Pujols cards, including a pair of second-year cards. The Big Signs insert is really cool, and if I had a larger penny sleeve I'd scan it when open. Because it does in fact open up to reveal Prince Albert in some cool throwback threads. A really awesome insert set, indeed. Kudos Fleer. Oh, and two Jim Edmonds cards. Always been a huge Edmonds fan. A Hall of Famer, without a doubt.


And finally, the Cards and Expos provided me with six cards I needed in my quest to complete 2004 Fleer Platinum. You may be asking why I scanned nine cards then. Well, Colbey threw in the three A's cards, all of which I needed towards set completion. The A's were Colbey's second team in the break. His generosity - and the fact that he clearly looked at my Want List and saw I needed the three cards - is much appreciated. My Needs List for '04 Platinum has been updated accordingly.

Thanks for the fun break and the extras Colbey! I'll definitely participate again at some point!
