Topps Chrome Hobby....I mean Retail Break
Chrome has been a product that I've always found great value and fun buying retail, since I missed out on the hobby pre-buy's I figured I'd go all retail this year.....Picking up two blasters and a rack pack as an early B-Day gift to myself.
I joked as I left that this was my version of a hobby box.....I didn't realize it really would be better than most hobby boxes.
Orange RC's - Hightower, Kalil, White
Veteran ref's - Finley, Suggs, Williams, Bush
Rookie ref's - Winn, Hillman, Gray, Ballard, Gilmore,
X-Fractor Vets - Bradshaw, Thomas
X-Fractor RC's - Osweiler, Still, Lindley, Jones
Black ref - Foster #'d 106/299
Purple ref - S. Johnson #'d 369/499
retro - Fleener, Egnew, Griese, Wright
tall boy - Wright Toon
tall boy ref - Givens #'d 26/99
Then I was happy with this first insert, cool card, great player....
Even more happy when an auto came out of the same blaster.
Then beyond happy with the 3rd card because it's a PC hit #'d 25
For $50 I was going to be happy with a couple Dolphins cards, and a Griffin or Luck...so this was just awesome. Thanks for looking!!collecting: Red Sox, Dolphins, Bulls and Uconn players
Player/Team Collector's - Scanning new inserts, rc's, etc. into my bucket each day. All prices located in the picture description. Cheap cards, cheap shipping (pwe to flat -rate for whatever fits into a mailer)
