Grade the Break(s) - 2018 Topps Chrome Jumbo Boxes
Greetings all! I apologize for not getting these done sooner. Since I am behind, and we have broke 4 Jumbo boxes of Topps Chrome, for this post, I am going to combine the four breaks into overall summary of what we cracked open. These four boxes were opened in 3 different breaks: 1 Jumbo PYT, 1 Jumbo Random, 2 Jumbo PYT.
Topps Chrome is usually the most anticipated product of the year, and maybe even more this year because of the hot rookies that can be found. If you are new to collecting chrome, this is the flagship Topps set shortened and done with the chrome finish. Usually it's the same image as the Topps set, but not all the time. Chrome revolves around the rookies but there are insert autos of veterans and stars. This year Topps didn't change format much from previous years. This set features their typical run of refractor parallels, numbered refractors, variations, and insert sets. This year they added a RC Medallion card that is really nice for a manufactured "relic".
* Beautiful Card Design and quality
* Refractors! Refractors! Refractors!
* All of the top rookies (Ohtani, Albies, Acuna Jr, Flaherty, Verdugo, Torres, and More)
* Sharp Inserts (Future Stars, Superstar Sensations, Freshman Flash, 83 Insert, and the RC Medallion)
* Easy Smudging and surface scratching
* Team Distribution was very bad for some teams, For some teams to not have any autos in a set is frustrating.
