Default Last box - Some nice color to finish up

Box 12

Notable Color:
Cliff Lee Sepia Refractor /75
Carlos Martinez Camo Refractor RC /15!

1972 Chrome:
Albert Pujols
Robinson Cano

Chrome Connections Die Cuts:
Jose Reyes
Matt Holliday

Dynamic Skill Die Cuts:
Dylan Bundy (keeping this one)

Autos:
Alfredo Marte Base Auto
Avisail Garcia Blue Refractor RC Auto (redemption)

Notable Rookies & Stars (all base unless noted):
Manny Machado
Evan Gattis
Michael Wacha (refractor)
Will Myers (refractor)
Anthony Rendon (x-fractor) (Dropshot808 - It's not numbered, but let me know if you want it or not)


All in all, I'd say I got my money's worth. Lots of great color and gotta love the superfractor auto, of course! Also liked the refractor hot box too, and the red Ryu auto is pretty sweet too. No Puig auto, but maybe I can pick one up with the proceeds from this case.

Thoughts on comparing this case to other cases you've seen? I watch some breaks and read recaps, but I don't catch them all, so interested to hear your thoughts.

A special thanks to the guys at Blowout - super fast shipping on the case, and I have to appreciate the contents, of course! Hope Chris and the gang are enjoying the National!

I will post a full recap in one large post tomorrow... Stay tuned. Most all will be FS, so PM me to discuss individual cards or needs. Everything else will go on ebay if nothing else. Thanks for all the comments and will get back to folks who have msg'd already by end of day tomorrow.

Nice case. I just did a case myself and didn't get a super or a /5 pink...or a Red auto...Best autos were a black/silver Tyler Skaggs, Evan Gattis Black auto rc...but the best card I pulled was a Puig Gold Refractor RC...

So with the super...you did well. Any case that has a super = better than average.

The Carlos Martinez was probably a good hit for you too.

Oh yeah, my case had a Rondon auto and Rondon auto refractor...so Rondon signed a lot. And I had a Gyorko base auto redemption.

Anyways, Congrats again.

How much did you pay for your case?

Thanks! I was pretty pleased overall myself too. For what I'm not personally interested in, it would be nice to make back the cash as well, or at least be able to pick up a Puig auto. I paid $895 for the case.... I think I got my money's worth.

I agree! What's wrong with these people at Topps? No Puig either! Oh well, maybe next time.
