Exclamation Baseball - 2011 Topps Chrome - 5 cases - 60 Hobby Boxes

We had a large group break here on Blowout recently. We pulled 129 autos plus tons of color. There are videos.

This break was a really big success. So much so that we are running it again.

Here are the autos broken down:

33 Danny Espinosa AUTO 4 base
170 Eric Hosmer RC AUTO 1 base
171 Tsuyoshi Nishioka AUTO 0
172 Brandon Belt AUTO 3 base 2 blue 1 gold
173 Freddie Freeman AUTO 1 base 2 black
174 Michael Pineda AUTO 3 base 1 ref 1 blue
175 Ben Revere RC AUTO 2 base 1 ref 1 gold
176 Brandon Beachy RC AUTO 4 base 1 ref
178 Mark Trumbo RC AUTO 1 base 1 sepia
180 Hank Conger RC AUTO - Listed/None Pulled 0
181 Jake McGee RC AUTO 1 base 1 ref
182 J.P. Arencibia AUTO 3 base
183 Jordan Walden AUTO 3 base
184 Eric Sogard AUTO 1 base 1 blue
186 Domonic Brown RC AUTO - Listed/None Pulled 0
188 Alexi Ogando RC AUTO 3 base 2 ref
190 Ivan DeJesus Jr RC AUTO 3 base 1 ref 1 black
191 Andrew Cashner AUTO 2 base 2 ref 1 blue
193 Darwin Barney RC AUTO 3 base 1 ref 1 blue
195 Craig Kimbrel AUTO 5 base 1 ref
197 Julio Teheran RC AUTO 5 base 1 ref
198 Eduardo Nunez AUTO 3 base 1 ref 1 sepia
200 Jeremy Hellickson RC AUTO - Listed/None Pulled 0
203 Brett Wallace RC AUTO - Listed/None Pulled 0
205 Chris Sale AUTO 3 base 1 ref 1 sepia
207 Alex Cobb RC AUTO 3 base 1 gold
214 Brent Morel AUTO 2 base 2 ref 1 black 1 blue
215 Kyle Drabek AUTO 2 base
216 Zach Britton AUTO 6 base
217 Mike Minor AUTO 4 base 1 atomic
218 Hector Noesi AUTO 4 base 1 ref 1 black 1 sepia
219 Carlos Peguero AUTO 3 base
220 Aaron Crow AUTO 3 base 2 ref 1 blue
Case 1 USA Redemptions/Autos 4 (ref non-auto, base auto, ref auto, blue auto)
Case 2 USA Redemptions/Autos 2 (blue non-auto, base auto)
Case 3 USA Redemptions/Autos 1 (base auto)
Case 4 USA Redemptions/Autos 2 (base auto, ref auto)
Case 5 USA Redemptions/Autos 0

total 129 autos

81 base autos
19 ref autos
5 black ref atos
8 blue ref autos
4 sepia ref autos
3 gold ref autos
1 atomic ref auto

Here are the recap videos - 1 per case:

Case 1


Case 2


Case 3


Case 4


Case 5


My take:

This is a great break and I would run it again and again. There is more color than 2010 by a large margin and the USA redemptions fell frequently - 9 in 5 cases.

There are a few things that I did not like though.

Remember this line from the sales sheet regarding the black refractors?
Quote:
Base Cards: The top 110 Chrome rookies and veterans are paralleled in a numbered* to 100 version.
Well, it is BS. It is NOT the Top 110 rookies or veterans. It is just cards 1-110. Guys like Sean Rodriguez and Aaron Hill are in the first 110 with black refractors - cards like #150 Albert Pujols are not.

Instead of having 1 blue refractor to /299, they exchanged it for 3 different refractors: sepia /99, blue /99, and black /100. I am glad because it adds more color - but I kind of feel cheated too.

We hit 28 blue refractors and 25 of them were for cards 1-110... the other 3 were 111-220. That is too wide a gap to be an aberration over 5 cases. It must be by design. Were most of the 111-220 blue refractors held out for retail maybe? This was the only color that behaved this way.

This is an easy break. There are only 98 cards per box and only 220 cards per base set. Very easy to manage and very easy to sort. Less than 6000 cards.

The base player lots averaged 23 cards each. There was 1 player that only had 17 cards (John Jaso) and there were 3 players with 27. This does not count colored refractors - just base, ref, and atomic refractor.

Refractors. There is a list of color below. EVERY player had at least 1 refractor with most having 2 or 3. About 40% had an atomic refractor /225.

Heritage. We hit about $80 to $100 worth of Heritage inserts each case. We averaged 2 black refractors /62 each.

Tools for other breakers:
  • Detailed list of all black, blue, sepia, gold, and red refractors. To download excel: Attachment 57582
  • Detailed list of all autos: autos.zip
We are going to run this break again this month and then run a similar break for 2011 Bowman Chrome.

No, 2 plates, the atomic auto /10, and a handful of red ref.

It goes to show you how SP'd the Hosmer and Nishioka really are. I'm also shocked you didn't hit a super or canary out of 5 cases.

I agree. I have seen a lot of group breaks but I have never done one or been a part of one. Your break downs are always the best and most thorough. If I ever decide to be a part of a group break, I know who it will be with. What baseball product are you doing next?

Just wanted to let you guys know that we are running this break again - 6 cases this time:

http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/t...hit-draft.html

It says "hit draft" but it is actually a "player draft" like before.

I have 5 cases of Finest baseball next and the new 6 cases of Topps Chrome after that. In November I have 10 cases of Bowman Draft.

I am going to build a refractor set and make it a "hit."

In the 5 case break, every player had at least 1 regular refractor with most having 2 or 3. So I figure I can easily build 1 complete refractor set out of the 6 cases.

FYI, it appears that the Dominic Brown auto was never issued.

Yes, they never made Conger, Brown, Hellickson, or Wallace.
