Product: 2015 Topps Chrome blaster x 2
Break Date: August 30, 2015
Hit Breakdown: Four Sepia Refractors
We were at Wal-Mart (the most evil of all places) doing a little shopping, and they had two left. I won't ever leave one on the shelf, so I picked up both.
Each comes with a pack of Sepia refractors - I liked those a lot in previous years, but I don't really love them as guaranteed hits. Still, I pulled a Cardinals PC card - a Sam Tuivailala RC - out of one of them. Otherwise, not much to report on that front.
Overall, it was a decent break. No autos, but I finally pulled a Kris Bryant RC. Most importantly, the second one had a really nice PC hit - a Gold Yadi Molina refractor, serial-numbered to 50. That's why you never leave one box: had I just grabbed one I would have probably grabbed the OTHER one.
So, an A- because of the Gold Yadi and Sepia Tui, but someone else who didn't pull PC cards would probably knock it down a peg.
