Default 2011 Topps Chrome Break (first ever posted)

Went into Toys are Us and saw a 5 blaster boxes marked down to $12.99. Bought them all. Here are the notable cards I got. Nothing extraordinary. There were a host of other plain 2 and 3 dolla' rookies of course. The mantle is cool though I must admit. All five boxes 70 dollars. 35 packs. For some reason the toys r us where I live is waaaay overpriced on their cards. Regular blasters $27 plus tax. I have no idea why.

Toys R Us usually always charges more for their blasters, but sometimes you can find a deal where it's like buy one get one for 50% or something.

You should check Target / Wal*Mart in your area for some blasters.

There are 3 walmarts, two meijers, and a target where I live. I already cleaned them out.

Toys R Us charges more on a lot of stuff. It's a wonder they're still in business.

Nice Mantle though

Mantle does look nice.

Too bad they printed that Nishioka upside down....

I never go to Toy R Us but happened to be in there recently and I noticed they had cards but turned around once I saw the blasters were priced at whatever you said, like $28 per or something. Couldn't believe it, guess that wasn't just a mistake at that store, sounds like it is normal at Toy R Us in general. Ouch!

Nice mantle! Those sold well at release, so hopefully you can find a good, wealthy home for that .
