When was the last night you got a hot box? (get your mind out of the gutter)

So my box yielded an eye-popping 14 autographs, one of them an auto-memorabilia card, plus two memorabilia cards, rookie cards, and a 20th anniversary buyback which means this box may have been the hottest box I’ve ever opened.

My 20th anniversary buyback was of Dwayne Henry, a veteran journeyman of the era, and I didn’t get a “What If?” card. I got a boatload of Team USA base cards and autographs and I'm happy with that because Joe Mauer, Billy Swift, Nomar Garciaparra and Todd Helton all had memorable cards of the same sort. No I won't leave out Mark McGwire but that card has fallen on hard times for obvious reasons.

The O-Pee-Chee preview cards were a nice addition and I also got a David Price rookie (plus eight other rookies including Detroit's Rick Porcello and Toronto's Ricky Romero) so all in all for $60-$65 it is one of the best breaks I’ve ever had.
