2012 Topps Strata Case Break
This is my first ever case break and probably my last. Although I like the looks of this set, I was not impressed with the contents nor with teh contents I have seen on other box and case breaks. Quality control on this product is at an all-time low. I was shorted 1 Rookie Relic, 1 Rookie Auto, 2 Rookie Parallels and 2 of my Rookie Die-Cuts was damaged. I've seen a lot of damaged cards coming out of this product. Luckily I got all of my Clear Cuts, really like the looks of these cards.
And another one
Now for the required Juron Criner
Dwayne Allen Bronze Parallel 48/150
How lucky am I? Another Juron Criner Gold Parallel 66/99
T.J. Graham Gold Parallel 4/99
2 Color Coby Fleener Blue Parallel 23/75
And the case hit
Coby Fleener Strata Signature 1/40
Don't you just love redemptions????
Thanks for the look. Some will be for trade and some will be finding their way to eBay.

Man, I'd be pretty upset about a case like that. I love the look of the case hits, but you for sure should have at least hit a Richardson or a Weeden at the least!~Matt

Good thing the Dolphins and Colts drafted a few players this year. At least you hit most of their rookies. Seems like only the same players are getting pulled. I hate looking at breaks and seeing the same person in all of them.
Hope you can recoup some of the money you spent.Collecting:
