Group Break Results, Box A: 2011 Leaf Ink

Here are the results of the first group break box, 2011 Leaf Ink. This group break has been sponsored by Blowout Cards.  I was very pleased with the service I received from them in procuring these boxes.

On to the cards....

2011 Leaf Ink is a pure buyback product. They inserted 4 slabbed autographed cards from various years and players plus one cut signature card per box. There is no formal checklist for the product.

Check out the video and then the scans below (you get to hear such scintillating commentary in the video....)

For the break, the order of choices is

1. Tim
2. Dan
3. Brad
4. Dan
5. Brad

Leave your options in the comments or send me an e-mail.

Here are the cards.

 1980 Topps Bill Buckner Auto: Did you know Buckner played 22 seasons? And was an exactly league average (OPS+ of 100) over his career?
 1964 Topps Russ Nixon Auto: It seems like catchers are the most likely of positions to become a manager.
 1966 Topps Bob Saverine Auto:  Was a utility player for the Orioles and Senators in the '60s and was nicknamed "Rabbit"
 1970 Topps Jim Bunning Auto: One of the first to win 100 games in both leagues (first was Cy Young).  The HOFer is best known for his years in Detroit and Philadelphia. He pitched a perfect game on Father's Day in 1964.
 Cut Auto "Bots" Nekola: Francis Joseph "Bots" Nekola played for the Yankees during the 1929 season, pitching in 9 games as a reliever.  He also played for Detroit in 1933.  He became a scout after his playing career and was responsible for signing Carl Yastrzemski for the Red Sox.
