stopped at wally world to get food for the fur babies tonight....as usual i walked by the card section...very seldom do they have anything that catches my eye and it's even less often that i have money to get any but i saw a batch of boxes with the 40% off stickers on them and decided to treat myself to one since i'd bought my first scratch-off ticket of the year friday and hit a $50 winner ...i chose a box of 2013 topps chrome.....didn't hit anything huge , but i definitely think i beat the odds - especially considering the sale price of just 11.98.....

saw they had one more of these boxes on the bottom shelf....based on the results of this one i'm very tempted to go back and try my luck one more time....

hey , i was expecting to see very little beyond the "a rookie card in every pack" (as promised on the box) and maybe one or two inserts/parallels....to see 2 extra rookies , 2 inserts (1:6 for the 1986 and 1:24 for the 1965) , and 8 parallels (3 refractors at 1:3 , 1 purple at 1:15 , 1 black ate 1:45 , 1 blue wave and 2 x-fractors) was great.....to top it off , the cordarrelle relic becomes the first relic in one of my new player collections (knew he went to tennessee , which i despise , but never realized until 2 weeks ago he hails from rock hill sc , making him an automatic for my in-state player collection.....),

Interested in the Frederick black refractor. Is it for trade?

although i normally don't get rid of refractors unless they are duplicates , i'd consider getting parting with it , though right now since i am in a heck of mess financially and am now down to less than 5 weeks to find a new home , i'd honestly rather work out a sale than a trade....that said , i am at least willing to listen to offers.....

well...not quite as many hits as the first one (1 less rc and 1 less parallel) , but i really like the bernard camo and bell x-fractor.....all in all , though i doubt i'd break many at full price , i'd say both have been quite a nice deal for 11.98 .....
