2012 Bowman Chrome & 2010 USA Baseball Set.. Lucky streak continues! Soler and Almora
So, two weeks ago today I pulled an Ichiro 1/1 from a 2010 Topps Update rack pack, and the day after a Miguel Cabrera buyback auto /10 from 2012 Topps Chrome rack pack.
I haven't opened much wax since, but the past two days I decided to buy a few boxes.
Saturday I picked up a box of 2010 Topps USA Baseball which, in my opinion, is one of the greatest value buys you can get. I was happy to find an Almora auto, along with GU's of Almora and Springer, autos of Mahtook, Brian Johnson and Hochstatter. To finish out my hits I got triple jersey autos of Brian Ragira and Mooneyham, as well as a triple patch auto of Steve Rodriguez, a very nice looking card even though it's not very valuable. I'm probably going to grade the Almora at the upcoming show, but if anyone's interested, all cards are FS/FT if you would like to make an offer. Here are some pics, and if you wanna see all the cards, here's a link: 2010 USA Baseball Photos by benp34 | Photobucket
Then today I picked up a 2012 Bowman Chrome box. I usually don't buy much hobby Bowman stuff because I usually end up with an auto worth $5 and the same cards I would have gotten from a retail box for 30 bucks less. Today, I got very lucky I think.
I pulled a Jorge Soler auto, one that I think is very gradeable, (I think it should get 9.5, but minimum 9). I was also happy with my inserts/parallels. I collect Ortiz and all NY Mets, and I got a David Wright Gold Ref /50, and an Ortiz/Bogaerts Franchise All-Stars. I also pulled a Castellanos futures game insert, along with an ogando purple ref /199 and a blue ref /250. All cards here are available FT/FS, including the Wright and Soler, but chances are I will hold the Soler until the show in two weeks to have it graded. Here are a few pics:
So, I think after the Mets game tomorrow I may have to go back to the shop and buy another box to see if my luck has run out or not.
Always trading/buying 2015 Miami Hurricanes FB (preferably Prizm & Contenders)
