    50 Chronology Cases

    Slightly misleading title for effect ;)
    This Ad will be removed when you a member of sportscardforum.com

    When the checklist came out for Chronology I jumped out of my seat. It's loaded with all of the best Blues players and nearly everything is autographed (at least for the Blues). Hull & Oates, Cujo, Unger, Pronger, Macinnis, GRETZKY... great checklist. I crunched some numbers... a lot of numbers... and decided it was likely I'd be near break even if I went nuts on the Chronology breaks. I was all in.
    Prior to this, I had only ever participated in two online breaks. This was new territory. I set out to win/purchase every single Blues spot in Chronology breaks that I could find (if it was within my pre-determined price range). Long story shortish, below is the result of roughly 50 Chronology 8 box case breaks (except for all of the doubles).

    So I know what you're thinking... darn dude you got completely smoked. You could have just bought all of these singles for the same price or even less. Well, there's this other little tid bit. One card in the entire product that is the single biggest Blues card ever produced. I am one lucky SOB. I have never owned a 1/1 before (other than Vault garbage)...

    It was a fun ride! Hopefully UD produces more products like this one. Thanks for looking.

    Nice stuff. Now hunt down that A to finish the Oates nameplate. The 1/1 Gretzky is AWESOME. If you have any dupes to move, let me know.

    Dude, congrats on all these sweet Blues cards you've acquired. Wow!

    That Gretzky 1/1 auto speaks for itself. What a stunning card. I love the look of Chronology!

    The Gretzky alone is probably worth whatever you paid for those breaks ... the rest of your Blues hits are just icing on the cake. Sweet show, congrats!

    Now that's an amazing group of cards. One thing that I always love seeing in this hobby is people who absolutely LOVE their team going all-out with a certain product like this. While nothing will ever reach the pinnacle of Habs Centennial all those years ago, Chronology is as close as we'll get to a product like that but for every NHL team. Amazing stuff and congratulations on that amazing Gretzky 1/1!

    Thank you guys! It was a fun few months of collecting.

    I also want to give a shout out to Out of the Box breaks. During this journey I did breaks with all of the major breakers and many of the smaller ones. Out of the Box was clearly the winner, in my opinion. Promptly breaking after they filled up (they break every single night). Shipping very quickly. Other breakers charged for one touches when I hit a Gretzky (I didn't mind paying, but it seemed a bit silly sending a few buck payment considering the amount of money being spent). When I hit a Gretzky with Out of the Box I emailed and instantly received a reply that "it's already in one and we will take extra care with shipping the card".
