Break Recap - 2018 Super Mixer #5
We ran our another super mixer on Friday night! The super mixers have been a lot of fun, with a lot of hits and chances to look at a bunch of different cards. Here's a box by box breakdown of what we pulled out of seven boxes with 30 hits total(we were expecting 28):
2018 Panini Chronicles: Chronicles has been really enjoyable in its 2018 incarnation, with fifteen different insert sets, so this is a chance to see a lot of cool looking cards. Each box has three autos and one relic card. Our autos from this box were a Lane Adams(Cubs) base auto out of the Panini set, a Jose Osuna(Pirates) base auto out of Select, and a great looking Gleyber Torres(Yankees) base Spectra auto. Our relic was a nice Anthony Santander(Orioles) triple relic patch out of Spectra numbered out of 49. For numbered cards some we pulled included a Dustin Pedroia blue Spectra /99, a Mookie Betts blue Chronicles /199, a Mike Trout Limited /199, a Bryce Harper green parallel out of Prizm /50, and a JP Crawford Score parallel /25. A nice box with a cool relic and a good looking Torres auto.
2018 Topps Chrome Jumbo: Chrome in 2018 was definitely a favorite, with lots of on card autos from many of the notable rookies. In this box we were expecting five autos and pulled six: Jordan Luplow(Pirates), a redemption for a purple refractor auto of Francisco Mejia(Indians), Max Fried(Braves), Hunter Wood(Rays), Adrian Sanchez(Nationals), and a Harrison Bader(Cardinals) refractor auto out of 499. Numbered cards included a Clayton Kershaw purple refractor /299 and a Cody Allen gold wave refractor /50.
2018 Topps Hi Tek: Hi Tek has 40 cards per box, with two autos in each box. Cards feature different patterns for the National League and the American League. Our autos here were a Scott Kingery(Phillies) base auto and a black orbit diffractor of Miguel Andujar(Yankees) out of 50. Some of the numbered cards pulled included a Mookie Betts Pyrotechnics galactic diffractor /99, a Tom Glavine black diffractor /50, and an orange orbit diffractor of Roger Clemens /25. We also pulled all but a pattern one of Jacob DeGrom's base card, which was fun.
2018 Bowman's Best: Bowman's Best has four autos per box, mostly featuring prospects but also some established players. The autos were Riley Adams(Blue Jays), Kevin Kramer(Pirates), Jordyn Adams(Angels), and a green refractor auto out of 99 of Victor Robles for the Nationals. Other cards included a gold refractor of Dustin Fowler /50 and a Justus Sheffield purple refractor /250.
2018 Leaf Metal Draft: Leaf Metal Draft features six autos per box with a lot of the hottest prospects on the auto list. Our autos were Shane McClanahan(Rays), a Nico Hoerner red parallel out of 20 for the Cubs, Griffin Conine(Blue Jays), a purple Andrew Knizer(Cardinals) numbered out of 15, a Jordyn Adams(Angels) Top Picks blue out of 35, and Casey Mize for the Tigers. Mize is one of the hottest prospects right now so he was a nice one to pull.
