Group Break Winnings

This post is coming several weeks late. Last month I participated in a Group Break put together by Nachos Grande. It included a whole bunch of different boxes; including 2006 Bazooka, 2003 Fleer Showcase and 2001 Topps Archives. Check out the booty below. Click any pic to embiggen.
The 2006 Bazooka cards above takes a look at a better time in the Dodger franchise. The Dodgers were to make the playoffs for the second time in three years. Andre Ethier would establish himself as a everyday outfielder and a future star on the team. We would be introduced to Matt Kemp, Russell Martin, James Loney and Chad Billingsley that year. The future was bright. Heck, mix in some stable and productive veterans like Nomar and Jeff Kent and a championship was sure to be around the corner. Man, that was a long time ago.
The below cards are what I was really hoping for. Here a bunch of Dodgers from the 2001 Topps Archives set. I had heard of the set and seen plenty of pictures, but this is the first time any of them have been added to my collection.
My one hit isn't even a Dodger. As a consolation each participant was given a second team in the group break and my team was the Diamondbacks.
