Group Break Hit: Legendary Cuts

The other box Thorzul broke in his December group break was a box of Legendary Cuts from 2007. I didn't get a relic or an auto, but I got a few nice Braves cards.

I keep falling into cool Niekro cards lately. I'm not complaining. I really like the look of these cards and I love that they used the old Atlanta logo.

Not necessarily one of my favorite Braves in history, but the guy had a few big years and an above average career. He even finished in the MVP voting 4 times.

On the other hand, Eddie Mathews is one of my favorite players of all time. I'm sure someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that Eddie is the only player to have played for the Boston, Milwaukee and Atlanta Braves.

I recognize that Walt Whitman isn't strictly a Brave, but I did pick him up as well in the break. According to Annie Savoy, he pitched for the Cosmic All-Stars, and that's not nothing. More importantly, his epic poem, "When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom'd" was forced upon me as my term paper topic my Junior year of high school. The poem itself isn't bad, but it is LONG. My advice, is have the one you love strip down to their underwear, tie them to the bed posts, and then read Whitman to them all night. They'll love it. Trust me.

I'd trade for the Whitman if you're interested. I stupidly collect those SP's...
