This is the first few packs of my Christmas loot. Before Christmas, my wife and I were out doing some last minute browsing, and I bought myself a Topps 2010 Best of Chrome Value Box from Target with some early Christmas money her grandfather sent us.
Naturally, I have to break it down into 5 separate posts: Topps Chrome, Bowman Chrome, Million Card Giveaway, Special Refractors, and Bowman Platinum Hobby. Here are the results of the 5 packs of Topps Chrome:
1: Carlos Gonzalez, Jon Lester, Joe Mauer, Mickey Mantle
>>> Starting off with a plain jane pack with nothing special. Even the Mick doesn't have the same excitement when you already have a few of that card.
2: Brandon Phillips, Curtis Granderson, AJ Burnett Purplefractor #065/599, Alex Rios
>>> Ok, now we're getting somewhere, nothing wrong with a numbered/colored/refractored card
3: Chris Coghlan, John Lackey, Ryan Dempster Xfractor, David Wright
>>> An Xfractor (Topps Chrome base should be Xfractors...that would be sweet) and a David Wright that I needed, that's what I'm talking about.
4: Felix Hernandez, Mark Teixeira, Robinson Cano Refractor, David Wright
>>> David Wright hot box!!! Ok, two cards does not a hot box make, but I'll take it. The Cano Refractor is a nice action shot.
5: Michael Cuddyer, Michael Young, Russell Martin Xfractor, Ubaldo Jimenez
