Default Chrome or Draft?

Pretty simple question. My LCS has both 2012 Bowman Chrome and 2012 Bowman Draft for the same price (relatively reasonable, too). Which one should I get?

I've only pulled great stuff from Draft. Also, are you buying packs or boxes?

Planning on getting a box of one of the two.

I'm intrigued by Chrome, as Oscar Taveras is heating up, and his auto is in Chrome. Draft does have a more solid checklist, though.

pretty sure Taveras came out of 2012 Bowman not Bowman chrome (and yes it is a chrome auto)

Well, this information is helpful.

Looks like Draft it is

Thanks for the info guys, I would've bought a box of Chrome hoping for a Taveras auto!

Chrome was basically highlighted by Soler, Hamilton and Castellanos. The checklist was mediocre at best.

I've had a very good amount of luck with Draft. Wish I could say the same about chrome...

^^^This. I've pulled a Russell perfect game auto /229, Dahl red ref 1/5, and a Brinson base auto from draft. In chrome I got a Rutledge ref auto and a Maynard auto -__-
