Default Topps Chrome - Horrible Centering

I opened one case so far and the centering on the base cards was the worst I have ever seen. 1/3 of the base cards look like this:





And then you have to look but a lot of the cards are scratched like this one, look just to the left of his hat:



Topps sucks with quality control. I will never buy chrome again:Two years in a row.

Last years TC was awful with centering problems. I opened a case a 75% of the cards were off centered.

2009 Bowman was like that too. 75% of the cards had okay centering, but I opened a bunch of packs that looked like the cards in the OP too.

Same here. Pre-ordered a case from my lcs and really got burned on the deal.

If I'm going to get torched, I'll do it big with Marquee next week. Case is paid for and I'm waiting for the release next week. I even have 5 spots in a 48 slot case break on another forum
