Supertrader Box Break

As I said on my post Monday I ordered a box of 2015 Topps Supreme.  Supreme is one of those one pack, boom or bust type of products. While I would consider the box a bust, both cards are going to claimed teams.

Congrats to CaptKirk here. He is our designated Orioles collector.  Gausman has the high end prospect pedigree, but has yet to reach his potential. The Orioles are going to have to lean on him a lot this year.
Always happy to pull a card for my good buddy Kevin of Card Papoy fame. I actually think I may have traded him this card, but I guess you can never have too many Roberto Osuna autos.  In all seriousness he is a really good young pitcher, but doesn't get the press of Marcus Stroman or Aaron Sanchez. 

All in all not a very good box, but we at least hit claimed teams.  The 2015 Supreme set is actually very nice as both autos are on card.  

I have a few more things in mind for the group, but that will be down the road. My mission now is to send out a bunch of trade packages to all of you.  Time to get to work.

Thanks for reading.

    1. Yeah, the cards having a home is the silver lining.

    1. No problem man. Wanted something hit based, but I guess I didn't choose the right box.

  5. (*Looks up price of a box of 2015 Topps Supreme -- does easy division because THERE'S ONLY TWO CARDS PER BOX -- bows respectfuly to BWTP for falling on the #supertraders sword*).

    1. It was fun to open the box. Obviously the results were less than ideal, but that is the nature of products like this. I'll think of something different next time.

  6. unless it's one you haven't sent me yet, I do not have that Osuna (and yeah, great things are expected of him, but nothing that makes up for the value of your box, I'm afraid). Thanks though !

    1. I checked last night and I found another copy that I had put aside for the next time I sent you cards.

  7. Osuna is too good to continue being used as a bullpen arm.

    1. I'm surprised the Blue Jays didn't try to convert him yet.
