I recently opened my Best of Chrome box which yielded a hobby pack of 2010 Bowman Platinum that was pretty boring. Well, I also picked up a retail pack just to see if there was anything good to be had there. The retail pack was 10,000 times better than the hobby pack. The contents:
100. David Wright
>>> A new Wright PC addition, ok, you've got my attention, pack.
PP38. Brian Johnson
>>> Always happy to pick up the AC/DC legend. Anyone else think he should start a band with Carlos Santana?...they could be called AL/NL...get it?!?!?
70. Jimmy Rollins
>>> A former MVP, this is shaping up to be a great pack.
40. Johan Santana Gold Refractor #440/539
>>> Right now, BA Benny is wondering why every refractor/parallel I pull is a Met or a Yank. I'm sure he's not complaining, though, seeing as how most of them get sent his way.
Well, that was a great pack. I wish Bowman Platinum didn't scan so crappily. The Wright is a great addition to the PC and the Gold Refractors look awesome. Hopefully I can get the rest of my Christmas posts done before February.
