Thumbs up Baseball - 2013 Topps Chrome - 11 Cases

Topps Chrome is my favorite product to bust for both baseball & football so with the great RC class I decided I'd go a little bit crazy...didn't think it would end up quite at 11 cases opened though
I pre-ordered through normal means 8 cases & bought another 5 off of ebay at some pretty good prices after the checklist popped with all the great names (4 of the 5 delivered - I am still sitting on one unopened case).

Case recaps & individual box by box breakdown -

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...mc&output=html

A link to the google doc if you prefer that over the imbed:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...DMnZQRmc#gid=2

My first three cases were really rough outside of the Xfractor sheet so I was definitely getting a bit worried. Puig autos (atomic then gold) in cases 6/7 back to back was absolutely crazy. Cases 6-8 was the run of the break with the two Puigs then a Jose Fernandez atomic atuo, Trout Connections die cut auto, & Weaver patch auto in case 8. Pink Autos in back to back cases (10/11) was quite nice too. I had a ton breaking this & actually bought another case + 4 boxes for what I think is a really good price (looks like prices went up a ton today 11/4).

I had a lot of fun breaking - lots of color, lots of big names, lots of fun. Value-wise, I'm sure I'll do very well because of the Puigs (atomic & gold) + Fernandez's (atomic & gold). Still on the fence about redeeming the Puigs. Even outside of that though, with the amount of color (between 5-6 color autos per case with 6 Gold or better base color refractors per case) I found it to be a super solid break with pretty small downside with the checklist. The one part lacking value imo is the complete sets going for only ~$20-$25 dlvd (so only $14-$20 net) which with the rookies in the set I find super low - probably due to all the products released at the same at season's end. Unfortunately I don't really see the set price rebounding at all.

Overall:
Fun Factor - 5/5
Value - 4.5/5

Almost everything is FS.
Smaller stuff is here, although it is not completely up to date so please pm me: FS: 2013 Topps Chrome Huge Sale Thread 8 Cases - Autos Color Refractors Inserts Sets
Bigger hits are mostly on ebay. Please pm if interested.

Pics of most of the bigger hits (some already sold so they aren't in the pics - these are what I have in hand as of posting 11/4):
















Bigger hits not pictured that sold (with dlvd prices for an idea of the market - most recent to oldest):
Giancarlo Stanton Atomic - $40
Paco Rodriguez Atomic - $32
David Ortiz Gold - $12.40
Anthony Rendon Red - $30

Wil Myers Black Auto - $70

Thanks, was super happy with the break - by far my best multi-case break ever! I tried to keep extra close track of everything because of this new section. Will help my bookkeeping moving forward probably too
