So, let's see how the Reds did.
Firstly, let's lead off with the highlight. If you were over there, you saw the front of this card - a jumbo that commemorates Ken Griffey Jr's 500th homer. It's 1365/1500. That's nice. The back of the card is even nicer.
Now, there were also a few Aroldis Chapman cards in the break, including a WBC rookie. Cuba is a beautiful place to visit, but I can understand and respect why anybody who can make a go of it in professional would struggle to defect.
And I'll wrap this up with a nice batch of interesting cards from the rest of the break. A Diamond King! Gypsy Queen Johnny Bench! E5! Another great Griffey photo! How can I not love a card for a player on the Pensacola Blue Wahoos? And stolen base machine Billy Hamilton? Yes!
Thanks for such a great break, Spankee! Is it next year yet?
