3 Box Break 2012 Topps Chrome, Bowman Chrome, Topps Update
Hello everyone. I did a 3 box break last night at the So Cal Baseball and Sports Collectors Expo. I didn't hit anything great. Here are the details:
2012 Topps Chrome Hobby
Refractor Auto - Chris Parmelee (#/499)
Base Auto - Austin Romine
Color - 1 sepia (#/75), 1 black (#/100), 1 blue (#/199). All commons, think it was Marcum, ???, and Lind.
2012 Bowman Chrome Hobby
Base Auto - Avisail Garcia
Prospect Gold Refractor - David Kandilas #/50 (from Australia)
Purple Refractor - Heath Bell (#/199)
Blue Refractor - Elvis Andrus (#/250)
2012 Topps Update Hobby
Relic - Andrew McCutchen
Silk - Will Ohman (#/50)
Harper - 1 Rookie (US 183) and 1 All Star (US 299)
Short Print - Ichiro (bowing)
Gold - Mickey Mantle (#/2012)
Like I said nothing special. Topps Chrome was bad, Bowman Chrome was decent (Garcia is a good prospect and I got a gold refractor, too bad I couldn't combine the 2 and make it a gold Garcia auto), and I think Topps Update was my best box. I didn't get an auto or a great relic, but I like McCutchen. It was nice to hit a silk even though that was probably the worst player to hit. The Ichiro short print was a nice surprise and the gold Mantle is a decent card. Thanks for looking.

Not great, but not bad. Nice to hit a silk in Update, I think they are like 2 per hobby case. You could probably make your money back on that box if you tried really hard.
