The Finest Indians, Thanks to Community

Gum that is !

Jon, Over at Community Gum recently had a 4 box break consisting of 1996 Finest Series 1 and 2,
1996 Fleer and 2004 Topps Clubhouse Collection.

I'm not sure how the '04 box got mixed in with the '90's stuff but it worked out OK !

Any Indian fan knows, in recent history, the mid 1990's was the time for the Tribe. And the card companies knew it too !

These are the team breaks I like to get involved in.

Here are the highlights of my share.


Hershiser, Mesa, McDowell,
Murray, Thome and Martinez.
Manny, Franco,
Belle, Lofton and Baerga.
Plus a few dupes.
A couple nice inserts.
Couple Post-Season Glory inserts.
Pitching and Power !
Base card on left :
"All new, textured Legend matte finish
"Tiffany Collection parallel set :
one card per pack"
Why do you suppose they used gold foil on base
and silver on tiffany parallel?
Seems like it should have been the other way around.
My random team was the Brewers.
All for trade if anyone is interested !
I got two uncommon silvers.
Both Brewers.
Both Greg Vaughn !
More trade bait !
More trade bait, Tiffany style.
And now, the one good reason to end up with the Brewers.
Alas, even this is trade bait.
I don't think there are any Indians in '04 Clubhouse.
 (except in Heritage).
What do you have to offer !??


  1. I've always had a soft spot for Fleer 96.

    I bought a few packs of 96 Finest awhile back and got a few dupes myself...IN THE SAME PACK. That drove me bonkers.

  2. Nice break!! Man, some of those are VERY cool Tribers!

  3. Thanks for joining in on the break. Congrats on the Yount again! Hope it brings in some good Indians cards for you!
