Default 2014 Bowman Chrome - 1 Box of Jumbo - Best ever ?

Busted this a couple of weeks ago and got too busy to post the break here. Nothing FS/FT.

Needless to say, I went from excited, to stunned, to ecstatic as each hit was revealed. Again, this is from ONE box of jumbo from my LCS.

Here are the hits in order as I pulled them:




Javier Baez Fire Die-Cut Auto Redemption #'d /25



Not a bad start ! Was cool to pull a low numbered auto of an up-and coming player. Couple of packs later.....





Javier Baez Fire Die-Cut Auto Redemption #'d /25


A second J.Baez Fire Die-Cut Auto redemption ! At this point, I remember thinking that I had crushed the odds and had a cool story to post here at the forum....then....

Kris Bryant Fire Die-Cut Auto Redemption #'d /25


When I saw the blue-tint, I slow rolled, thinking 'Oh man they loaded this box with J.Baez Fire Die-Cut auto redemptions !!! Glad I was wrong. It was here I considered the possibility of a screw up at the factory. I would have bet (and again lost) that I had snagged the CASE hit when in fact, I hadn't even hit the best card from the BOX yet.....next hit we finally see a 'live' auto.....

Manuel Margot Gold Auto #'d /50

It was at this point I started wondering if this was the best box of cards I had ever opened. That question was firmly answered with the final hit.....

Kris Bryant Chrome Mini Auto Redemption #'d /10

Again, I saw the blue-tint and slow rolled thinking. "ANOTHER Fire Die-Cut Redemption !!....LET IT BE ANOTHER Bryant !!" I was half right in any case and glad of it. To recap:

(1) Box of Jumbo.

(4) Redemptions

(5) low-numbered autos


After collecting myself, I raced back to the LCS to grab the last jumbo he had on the shelf and share the story. Sadly, that box contained (5) base autos only.

Was this a mistake from the factory ? Have there been other such breaks involving so many and/or duplicate redemptions ? I have opened in total 2+ cases of Jumbo and 3+ cases of Hobby from 2014 BC and have had some great pulls (X3 KB base autos + X1 ref auto, X2 Abreu autos, X2 Urias ref auto and plenty of low numbered autos/hits (btw...I never pulled the KB and JU autos from the same box) but this break was something quite special.

Awesome box, correlation on this product has been downright awful. Cases with 8 Supers, box with 4 chase autos, incredible. Good for you man! We all need something like that every now and then.

Hmmmm.

Amazing box, obviously, that goes without saying, but how do 4 redemptions end up in a single box? That doesn't even make sense from a production/packing perspective, let alone two of the exact same card, and a third of one just like the other two.

This certainly doesn't fall into the realm of 'natural occurrences'.

You win, everyone else loses.

how is that possible? i hav eto say i'm jealous, great job man. I usually pull redemptions of guys who get sent back to the minors after half a season. Except for a couple hits, my luck sucks. I'd contact beckett monthly magazine and tell them about this box!

You are more than likely the benefactor of laziness by a Topps employee. It is kinda like that sweet bank error card in the "chance" pile. Or is it in the "community chest?"

That box was an obvious dud. I'll pay you what you've got into it and take it off your hands haha.
Nice box!! As a Cub collector I can only dream of one that sweet
