Default 2012 Bowman Chrome Blaster - last one at K-Mart

I'm collecting baseball cards after a long hiatus. I found a 2012 Bowman Chrome Blaster at my local K-Mart (the last one) for $21.50. Should I buy it and try my luck or wait to pull together enough funds to buy a box? Or just buy singles? I'm on a tight budget - any suggestions???

Wait and buy a hobby box or singles. At $21.50 you're overpaying anyways and why not start (or re-start) the hobby on a better note by getting a hobby box or a card you really want.

Default Advice on Chrome

Sounds like good advice Natitude - thank you! I have already picked up two cards. A Taveras purple for $9 and a Harper green refractor for $9.50 which seem like good deals as far as I can tell.

More than likely better than anything you would have got from the Blaster box.

Default Blaster box

I just added a 2012 Chrome Blaster to my wish list on Amazon. $19.99 on there with free shipping (prime). It's my birthday on Saturday, maybe my wife will surprise me.
