Retail Blaster Break: 2012 Topps Chrome

Just a few years ago I was not on the chrome bandwagon because of one reason, the curled cards.  Since then I have gotten over it and now I love the slight flex of the card that each year we get from Topps.  I might not have said it before, but my wife is an extreme coupon-er and many times she uses hundreds of coupons a visit/transaction and sometimes she gets a negative balance and then she'll pick me up a box or two to get the balance to zero since many stores don't give money back if you go negative using coupons.  Tonight she got me Topps Chrome!  Though I didn't get any hits, I did get a super bunch of players and many refractors.

Refractors Totals:
Purples: 4
X-Factors: 1
Refractors: 3

Key Rookies: Matt Moore, Jesus Montero
Kimbrel Refractor, Verlander, ARod, Ackley
Fielder, Berkman, Ichiro, Craig
Avila, Braun, A. Gonzalez, Cliff Lee
Key Rookie: Mesoraco
Mesoraco X-Factor, Sanchez, Peralta Refractors
Purple Refractors: Gordon, Pierzynski, Peacock, and "the pirate" Brian Wilson

Again, another good blaster box break!  One thing I love about blasters is you may not get hits, but you are able to get a good amount of base/insert cards of the product!
