Default 2010 Bowman Chrome Case Break

First case in awhile, went with the 2010 bowman chrome case that was on sale from blowout. I'll continue updating this post after every 3 boxes. As i'm beginning to open these packs though i'm noticing a ton of the packs are bent. Nearly half my cards were bent in the first case and I just keep hoping they're none of my big hits... has any one else had this problem with bowman chrome where a lot of the cards are bent? When I stack the cards up it literally begins taking the shape of an arch... not too happy so far. The case was factory sealed and also well packaged from blowout.

I'll just post the main hits of the boxes and some scans when i'm completely done

Box 1 (not how I wanted to start out)
Simon Castro base redemption auto
Jeurys Familia rc refractor /500
Jason Kubel blue refractor /150

Box 2 (two autos at least)
Jose Lopez printing plate 1/1
Yohan Flande rc refractor /500
Ben Revere topps 100 refractor /499
Marc Krauss base rc auto
Christian Lopes USA base rc auto

Box 3
Pedro Baez base rc auto
Avery Barnes orange refractor rc /25
Josh Vitters Topps 100 /999

Here's to hoping the worst is behind me

Box 4 (my anger begins to grow)
TJ Macfarland Base Auto
NO Refractors
NO colors
1 pack had 3 cards, another had 5. Strange

Box 5
Alex Liddi Blue Refractor auto /150
Andre Ethier blue refractor /150
Refs- Mauer, Hochevar, Morales

Box 6
Trevor Reckling base auto
Brian Ragira USA refractor auto /199
Trevor Recklin gold refractor /50

Box 7
Tyler Chatwood base auto
Adrian Cardenas Topps 100 refractor /499
Carlos Pena blue refractor /150

Box 8
Trayce Thompson refractor rc auto /500
Almora/Ragira USA dual auto /500
Allen Craig gold refractor /50
Strasburg rc refractor

Box 9
Adeinis Hechavarria base rc auto
Grant Hogue rc refractor /500

Box 10
Anthony Bass base auto
Drew Storen refractor
Michael Kirkman blue refractor rc /150
refs- Buehrle, Fowler

Box 11
Ozzie Martinez refractor rc auto /500 (only hit in the entire box, not too thrilled about that)

Few refractors but none numbered

2010 was a really bad year for quality control at Topps. Topps Chrome and Bowman Chrome had a large curl to the cards. There was also a lot of white powder on the cards that year. Had that in Bowman Platinum as well.

I've noticed some white powder as well on some of the veteran cards, not impressed at all so far

I remember reading a story about the Strasburg that they don't have anymore to be sent out. He signed XX amount and when they sent all of them out, they didn't have anymore to send. It will be replaced with something other than Strasburg.

Well that's it for this case, nothing too special. Overall i'm not too pleased with it. I knew going into the case that there weren't many valuable autographs and I accepted the fact that it would be either a great case or terrible case with probably no in between. I'm pretty upset with the poor condition of the cards and the number of hits per pack, certainly didn't get very many parallels/colors. Not expecting to get very much money back from this case that's for sure

I'm looking to move the whole lot, preferably together. I just made a thread in the buying/trading section... if I can't find someone to purchase the entire lot then i'll start breaking it up

2010 Bowman Chrome was bad for bowing. They are not bent, just bowed. There is nothing wrong with it except that it just sucks with sorting/storage/etc.

Ouch rough break. I also busted a 2010 bc case a couple weeks ago and there were a ton of offcentered prospect cards but the hits were pretty good.

That is 2010 STERLING BASEBALL!!!

Folks, if you are going to put that kind of info out there please make sure it's correct. I just redeemed 2010 Chrome Strasburg auto.........


I'm buying lots of Wil Myers, Middlebrooks, Sano, Starling, Wilin Rosario, and Gary Sanchez if you want to move what you got from your case....

Wow that was a rough case. I literally was going to buy a case of that today along with the 12 redemption packs, and at the very last second went with the 2010 Bowman Platinum.

GLWS!

I like that people post breaks of this once in awhile. It helps to remind me not to order every time I have the itch for it.
