Default Nifty 11 Pack "Best of Topps" Repack Break

After seeing a few of the "Best of Topps" repack breaks and how poor they were, I had pretty much decided to stay away from them...until I decided they looked like fun, of course. Here's the breakdown of the eleven packs, all 2012:

1 Topps Chrome
1 Topps Heritage
1 Bowman Purple Pack (rack pack exclusive)
1 Gyspy Queen Framed Pack (rack pack exclusive)
2 Topps Archive
3 Gypsy Queen
4 Bowman

So I guess it was thirteen packs...box advertised eleven, but I just counted them up. I guess that must've been rack packs of Bowman and Gypsy Queen? Couldn't tell you...nice breakdown and variety of packs made for a fun bust. Here's what i pulled:

Jered Weaver Topps Chrome Refractor
Jack Clark Archives Reprint
Willie Mays Archives Insert
Brandon McCarthy Black GQ Mini
Jim Thome GQ Moonshots (PC)
Rod Carew GQ Mini
Jackie Robinson GQ Hallmark Heroes
Michael Bourn GQ Straight Cut Mini
Michael Pineda GQ Future Stars
Joe Dimaggio GQ Rack Pack Frame
Roy Halladay GQ Rack Pack Frame
Eddie Matthews GQ Rack Pack Frame
Noah Perio Bowman Purple
Nick Kingham Bowman Purple
Jackie Bradley Jr. Bowman Paper Prospect
Yunel Escobar Bowman Gold
Addison Reed Bowman Gold
Myrio Richard Bowman Blue /500
Michael Bourn Bowman Gold
Xander Boegarts Bowman Chrome Prospect
Ervin Santana Bowman Gold
Justin Verlander Bowman's Best
Miguel Cabrera Bowman's Best

And the best three of the break...


Gerrit Cole Chrome Prospect
Bryce Harper Bowman Purple
Jon Lester Gypsy Queen Framed Mini Jersey

Safe to say I'm very happy with the break! Lots of inserts kept it fun, I pulled another Cole (have a Chrome signed by him in person), a Harper that would about pay for the break, and another Gypsy Queen hit. Couldn't have asked for much more.

That's the fifth hit I've pulled from 2012 Gypsy Queen from two rack packs, four hobby packs, and a blaster. It was very good to me this year...but three of the hits were Red Sox. Still, pretty sweet!

All-in-all, nice little break that killed some time and yielded a few nice hits. Fun bust, even if they don't yield nice pulls just for the variety. Glad I decided to pick one up.

That's a heckuva break! Seems like these are pretty hit or miss; I saw two rough ones last night.

From the MJ Holding Company, similar to Fairfield...box says "Featuring Topps Products" on it and "Best of 2012" as well.
