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.
- 189 - Will Middlebrooks [RC]
- BCP197 - Miguel Chalas
- Blue Refractor 214 - Bryce Harper [RC] (serial # 62/250 | retail Blue Refractor odds 1:73)
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.
- 1 - Roy Halladay
- BCP204 - Matt Hoffman
- FAS-WW - David Wright & Zack Wheeler (retail FAS odds 1:12)
122 - Paul Konerko
201 - Cliff Lee
- BCP111 - Rob Rasmussen
Green Refractor Pack
- Green Refractor 95 - Ubaldo Jimenez
- Green Refractor 164 - Max Scherzer
- Green Refractor BCP134 - Daniel Santana
That Harper rookie card has been selling for anywhere between $80-$90! I've never been so disappointed with a value pack break!
