I was in Cape May, New Jersey, this past weekend, and I was hanging out with Rich and Sara and Brian at Layton Sports Cards. I knew I wanted to buy a box of cards while I was there, but I couldn't figure out what I wanted. Then I thought, why buy I box when I can just buy a case?
So I did.
I got a case of Topps Chrome. I love to rip wax, so this was certainly a good product for that. Twelve boxes per case, 24 packs per box, four cards per pack. Two autos per box as well. I was hoping for at least one Abreu, and some nice color as well!
So, here is what I got...or at least SOME of what I got. I am certainly not going to show you all the cards, even though those chrome are really pretty to look at.
Three golds, these are numbered out of 50. No big names to write home about.
Also notable, since I heard somewhere he was retiring or something, I guess it is a big deal to pull Derek Jeter cards. There were seven in this case, and someone will have themselves a nice lot of 2014 Jeter Chrome cards when they win the auction on eBay.
My first personal case breaking experience was pretty fun. Yes, it's expensive, but you are guaranteed to get the case hit, and who knows what that will be? You can also get a very good start on set building. Speaking of which, I have hundreds of 2014 Chrome cards if anyone needs any. Most of what I pulled insert or big-names-wise has already been listed on eBay to try to recoup some of the cost of the case.
I hope everyone is doing well! If anyone has pulled any Halladay or Flacco cards recently hit me up--I have a a lot of cards I am able to trade. As always, thanks for reading the blog and following me on Twitter!
