Default 2012 Topps Chrome Football Retail

Need some help...never buy or bought retail stuff but I want to try the topps chrome football before hobby comes out. I am going to toysrus and kmart later today. Am I better off trying to get blasters or rack packs. Which has better ROI and better chance for an auto. Any help would be great thanks

i've heard it's the racks. the blasters usually guarantee a jersey in them though, depending on the store.

I got CRUSHED on blasters, where as it seems people are doing real well with the racks.

I bought 9 racks, and did alright. 9 refractors, 9 xfractors, 27 orange, 2 black, 2 purple, 2 camo, 3 tall boys (1 prism), and enough inserts where I'll probably break even or come out ahead just selling these. Helps to hit an RGIII orange and Richardson prism tall boy though.

I got one red from a blaster and one from a rack, they were both good, but make sure if you go blaster it has auto odds on the back of the box or says "7 packs plus one extra pack".

From what I've seen, don't buy chrome blasters from Walmart, unless you want the worthless jersey card.

Blasters from Target seem to be the way to go if you want any chance of pulling an auto from a blaster.

A guy I know on another site actually pulled a Luck auto from a Target blaster last night.

I did better with rack packs over blasters, with one exception. One of my Target blasters had 4 purple refractors in it, along with one pink and one gold.

Bought a rack and a blaster from Walmart last night. Target here doesn't have it in yet.

Rack hits:
Mohamed Sanu (1984 style rookie card)
Alshon Jeffery RC - Purple #158/499
Chris Givens RC - X-Fractor
Ndamukong Suh - Orange Refractor
Michael Turner - Orange Refractor
Janoris Jenkins RC - Orange Refractor

Blaster hits:
Jarius Wright - Jersey insert card
Justin Blackmon (1984 style rookie card)
Drew Brees - Refractor
Nick Perry RC - Refractor
Andre Johnson - Camo Refractor #27/499
Jordy Nelson - X-Fractor
Ray Rice - X-Fractor
Andrew Luck - 1957 card #1
T.J. Graham RC - Tall Boy

I have a question regarding the Tall Boy though. Mine says the standard "The signing of all Topps autograph cards..." line at the bottom, but it's not an autographed card. It also doesn't have the white space where the auto WOULD be if it were an autograph card. Do all the Chrome Tall Boys say that on the back? Or is it an error card where they forgot the sticker?

Also, all the cards I listed are for sale. If interested, PM me a price and we'll see if we can work a deal out.

Not all blasters have jerseys. Target ones do not, Wal Mart ones do (I believe ...)

Personally I'd go with the racks, I like the orange refractors.

Also, you said you are going to Toys R Us and K Mart. Not sure how there card stock is but around here Toys R Us is overpriced well above Target/WalMart and K-Mart still has 2008 baseball on the shelf, full price. May be best off going to another store.

Yeah, found that in another thread a few minutes ago. Sucks. I was hoping it was one to send back to Topps to get it signed. Oh well, it's a nice card anyways.
