2013 Topps Chrome Football blaster #4

Sport:  Football
Product:  2013 Topps Chrome
Break Date:  December 4, 2013
Hit Breakdown:  No guaranteed hits
Summary:  We're really enjoying Chrome this year. There's a great refractor-to-pack ratio; they're coming out at a one-per-pack rate, and packs with colored refractors seem to have two.

This blaster was solid, but unspectacular. There were a few colored refractors, but no one to get too excited about. The Gio Bernard 1965 tallboy was a nice pull – that insert seems a little tougher to get out of a retail pack. The Stepfan Taylor die-cut is a nice card also.

Overall, a mediocre break...nice to pull a Black Refractor since it's pretty low-numbered, but there wasn't too much to get excited about.
