This year with all the added auto parallels it is actually much easier to hit the big names if you are going strictly by pack odds. 2012 is a far superior product to 2011. Topps didn't screw us...they delivered a fantastic product.
I'm not disputing the fact that this year's Chrome product isn't great but it doesn't mean that the Luck and Griffin base cards are more diffucult to pull then say Cam base auto last year.
Only one Andrew Luck base rookie on card auto on Ebay four days after release?
