Awesome price. Awesome pull. Disappointing details.

I found a Value Pack of 2012 Bowman Chrome Baseball for only $5.45! In that value pack is 3 retail packs, and 1 retail-only Green Refractor pack. Each of those packs includes 3 cards.

Wow! I pulled an epic hit in my first pack! Unfortunately for me -- the card has dozens of straight scratches (you can't see it in the scan) on the front and back of the card! I like how Topps didn't bother to quality check their star players cards...

Just for the record, that card wasn't damaged by a pack searcher because: 1. the scratches are ruler straight; 2. the packs are about as crisp as it gets; 3. the rest of the cards in the pack are mint.


Pack 2

Base Cards

  • 1 - Roy Halladay

Insert Cards

  • BCP204 - Matt Hoffman

That Harper rookie card has been selling for anywhere between $80-$90! I've never been so disappointed with a value pack break!
