Talking Holy Retail Find!:07/08 Topps/Bowman Chrome, 08/09 Topps Chrome/Treasury *LIVE BREAK*

So I took my mom in to get surgery on her knee this morning (it went fine, she's back home recuperating). While killing time, I stopped at a nearby K-Mart that I hadn't been to in years. I was amazed at what I found. Not only did they have current stuff (garbage), but I found some of my favorite products, from some great past years! I had to control myself and leave some product there, but I got some good stuff.

All told, I got 4 blisters packs of 07/08 Topps Chrome, 2 blisters of 07/08 Bowman Draft, 1 blaster of 08/09 Topps Treasury and 1 blaster of 08/09 Topps Chrome (the latter 2 being probably 2 of my fav. bkb products of all time).





The good:

-The blister packs only cost $1.49!

The really good:
- The Topps Chrome blaster only cost $9.99 (oh Yes)...the Treasury was the regular $19.99

The bad:

-The Topps chrome doesn't seem to have any Topps logo on the wrapping and is partially opened in 1 spot, so I'm scared it may be resealed (but for $10, I'll take the risk)


Anyone interested in seeing a live break of something slightly different than Panini banality?

Not expecting anything earth shattering...just happy to open some old favorites!

Will start in a few minutes, with the 07/08.

Just to be clear, I'm not breaking live (in the video sense), just updating as I go along...but I'll post pictures if there's anything worth it.

Can't wait to see what you pull from Topps Treasury. It's a personal favorite.

I don't think they "stock" old product...I just think a lot of them never get rid of old stuff.

Btw, had to help my mom with her brace and such, so sorry for the delay...

And EVEN BETTER NEWS....The Topps Chrome is NOT Re-sealed (hallelujah). It was actually double wrapped, the outer wrapping was the torn part

Sweet pull. If I remember correctly, gold refractors were pretty hard pulls. About 1 out of every 2 or so hobby boxes.
