This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

Box Break–My Cardboard Mistress


One thing I love about Spankee, is his blog title.  “My Cardboard Mistress” is so true, probably for most of us and I’m jealous that he came up with it first.  But on to the cards.


All of these were new to the White Sox Collection.  Being as I haven’t opened a pack of 2012 cards yet, I definitely appreciated the Chris Sale bowman.  The Jim Thome card on top is numbered to 699.  Really like the Addison Reed purple refractor and the Upper Deck Spectrum’s at the bottom.


Spankee even managed to hit a couple of player collections with the above Heritage Luis Aparicio for the Luis Aparicio Collection.


Also come Paul Konerko’s that I didn’t have including a 2003 Topps Gold.  Both cards are new to the Paul Konerko Collection.


And what ends up making it a great break is when you manage a hit, I actually got 2.  I said above how much I like the Spectrum cards and a jersey card of Jim Thome with a pinstripe peaking out is pretty great.  And I really loved the Tadahito Iguchi autographed card.  I believe this was my first hit, let alone autograph of his.  He was an integral part of the 2005 World Championship team.

Great break from “My Cardboard Mistress”, thanks Spankee.


  1. I have your address and I will be breaking into your house this weekend to take that Iguchi auto. You have been warned.

    1. I'm just glad I beat you to a group break. You keep getting to them before I can and taking my White Sox. Keep it up and I'll send another box full of commons to your house and make you deal with them.
