Product: 2013 Topps Chrome
Break Date: December 5, 2013
Hit Breakdown: One jersey card
Summary: One last Chrome blaster...this time, from Wally World - a lunch-time break.
To be honest, I forgot that there were no autos in Wal-Mart blasters, or I wouldn't have bought it. They do guarantee one jersey card, though, so at least that's nice.
So, after cracking it open, I realized that I pulled a Tavon Austin photo variation, which is a nice card. Also pulled my first Blue Wave refractor, and those cards really look nice.
The jersey was Markus Wheaton - nothing to write home about. Nothing numbered, though.
Across the board, Chrome blasters have been a solid product. This year. Any blaster where you're basically guaranteed to pull one refractor per pack is nice, and Topps has done a decent job of mixing it up, with lots of colored refractors per blaster.
