September Affordable Break @ Cardboard Collections

Another great affordable break by Colbey over at Cardboard Collections.  This month's break included a box each of the 1991, 1992, and 1992 O-Pee-Chee Premier Baseball.  The Braves and Red Sox were already taken so I went with the Houston Astros with my second random team being the Mets.  I was a bit disappointed at first with the Mets but upon receiving my cards realized how many great players were on those teams.  I was very happy with the Astros include some great cards of what was to become an excellent team.  Colbey also threw in some Braves players for me which was a great surprise.  He does a wonderful job with these breaks and I suggest everyone give 'em a try (though I do believe this was the last one for this year).
  This Astros team was still young but it wouldn't be long before these young players would form the base of a team that would go to the playoffs six out of nine seasons and would make one World Series appearance.
Head shots aren't always that fun but you have to like this one of Doug Jones.
Again, plenty of star power from these Mets' teams.
More Braves and Murph!  My favorite design of the three was definitely the 1993 design.  Nice O-Pee-Chee logo and design overall.  The backs of all the cards are nice with plenty of color and a different color photo from the front.  I look forward to more breaks next year.  Colbey comes up with some fun boxes.


  1. I absolutely loved the 1991 set when it first came out. I'm sure some of it was coming off of the hype produced by the hockey set, but I just liked the card's design. And even though it put the bare minimum in regards to stats, I still like the brightly colored back with the extra photograph. Top it off with the well cropped photo (ex. Gooden) and you have a winner in my book.

  2. I got doubles of about every Red Sox card in this break. Let me know what you could use.
