Default 2013 Topps Chrome Baseball Hobby Case Break (my 1st ever solo case break)

Decided to pick up the last case that Blowout had of 2013 Topps Chrome. Couldn't make it to the National, so I'm doing my own party instead. When I have done a break before, it's always been part of a partial case break with a buddy of mine on here (mkal411). So I guess this is officially my first ever case break. Love this product so I would love to see something amazing come out of it. I will say that I've typically had great luck in the past... let's hope that holds true this time also.

Will post the results on here as I break the boxes... let me know if anyone needs anything in particular to finish sets or is looking for certain players. Will post photos of anything crazy, or others by request. Will have most of this FS if you want something (unless I specifically PC it).

Wish me luck!

If you pull the Alex Wood superfractor you are going to get PAAAAAID

Not to mention, nice to get 3 autos in one box!


Btw, is anyone a Tigers Fan? Please reply with what you think of him as a player... I don't know him that well.

Thinking I might want to quit while I'm ahead already... haha! Still looking for a Puig auto, so I say no to that! Will be back with Box 2 in just a bit.

I probably should for profit sake, but I didn't buy the case for profit so I'm going to keep going. The Rondon should probably help me a bit.... Not that I expect another superfractor auto, but hey, there's still a lot of other nice cards to be had too... wish me luck!

Well, this is Topps Chrome instead, but yes, superfractors are always awesome to hit! Gotta love autographed ones in particular!

Much appreciated for the mojo vibes.. will keep an eye out for those autos for you, and for all other autos/players mentioned prior to this post also.

Ooops, my bad. I thought I read Bowman Chrome. Nevermind about Owens/De La Cruz then! None the less, best of luck and awesome hit!

Box 4 coming up! I know I break pretty slowly compared to most (I'm definitely no Chris Justice), but I don't like rushing it... I feel like it ruins the mojo. Anyhow, I'll probably only get through 2 more boxes, but then will have to come back and do the rest of the case later tonight or tomorrow. We'll see how far I get... wish me luck!
