Jumbo Update Box Break - Pack #8

Hard to get more dupe-filled than this morning's pack, but this one made an impressive challenge for that title.

Russell Martin
Erik Bedard
Jason Giambi
Ryan Kalish
Didi Gregorius
Pat Neshek
Joba Chamberlain
Chris Colabello
Hisashi Iwakuma
Marwin Gonzalez
Dioner Navarro
Felix Hernandez
Reid Brignac
Pedro Strop
Luis Avilan
Shawn Kelley
Yoervis Medina
Ricky Nolasco
Matt Garza
Kyuji Fujikawa
Alex Wood
Alex Gordon
David Wright

Oh boy. We're off to another dupe filled start from the first part of the pack.  As in all of them.
Shelby Miller - Gold
David Phelps - Emerald
Craig Kimbrel - Making Their Mark
Edwin Encarnacion - Chasing History (First Blue Jay to hit four home runs in consecutive games for a third time) I love getting Blue Jays cards, but this might be the biggest stretch to shoe horn a guy into an insert set ever.
Shelby Miller - 1971 mini
Shelby Miller/Bob Gibson - Franchise Forerunners - It's a Shelby Miller hot pack!
Brandon Phillips - All-Star Stitches Gold /50 - It's not a player I collect, but it might be decent good trade bait. And it is nice and sparkly, if you're into that.

Resume dupes!

Daisuke Matsuzaka
Wade Davis (Unlike the first one, this card doesn't have a dinged corner)
Casey Kotchman
AJ Pierzynski
Charlie Morton
Chris Getz
Salvador Perez
Matt Moore
Jake Peavy
Steve Delabar
Matt Tuiasosopo
Travis Hafner
Evan Gattis
Bryce Harper
Buster Posey
Chris Davis
Mariano Rivera
Michael Wacha

Nothing but dupes among the base again. At least I can replace the Wade Davis with a card in better shape. The main difference is the thickness of the relic insert probably meant a couple fewer dupes this time around.

I think I'll bust a repack tomorrow as a pick-me-up. Sure, I might not need the cards for a set, but the dupe ratio will have to be lower than this.
