Topps Chrome is at Walmart...and guess what the October prize is?

First, I'm getting over bronchitis so I wasn't at work last night and wasn't going to post today. I decided to let the contest stay open until tonight as well

Then I found these at Wal-Mart.

This is a rack pack of 2010 Topps Chrome. It scanned as two images, but it's all one pack.
The retail price...$8.98. I bought 4 of these, 3 for me and 1 to give away as the October prize. You can still enter the contest here. At least until I get to work tonight you can.

This special value pack (right) contains 3 packs of 2010 Chrome (4 cards/pack) and 3 "Exclusive Refractors" in their own special clear package. These "Exclusive Refractors" are a dark orange color.

Here are my 3 "Exclusive Refractors".

Jorge Posada

Dexter Fowler

Tyson Ross

My first 2010 Topps Chrome regular card was...

A New York Yankee and Mickey Mantle at that.

The first pack also had:
Jose Lopez, refractor
Jake Arrieta
Drew Storen

Pack 2:

Joe Mauer

Nick Markakis X-Fractor--This one is going to Beardy because I've been sick and haven't mailed his Andrew Jones Ginter auto yet like I promised I would.
Hideki Matsui
Denard Span

Pack 3

Alex Rios

Jorge Posada Blue Refractor #17/199 (1:191 packs)
Andrew Cashner
Bryan Anderson

So overall, the refractors are nice.

I already opened my 3 packs plus a blaster I bought as a comparison. You'll have to wait on the comparison though.

I hope whoever wins that other rack pack hits a good card.

I'll do the randomization tonight. Good luck and go get entered if you haven't already.


  1. Awesome. I'll be waiting by the mailbox!

    Oh, and it's Adam Jones, not Andruw. Not that it matters too much.You were probably getting your underachievers mixed up.

  2. Wow, that's a lot of Yankeeness. Hopefully the prize rack pack is devoid of that nonsense.

  3. Those look really really nice! Guess I'll have to make a detour to Walmart on the way home from work today!

  4. Nice - you open the Yankees rack pack, so we don't have to. Thoughtful!

  5. Beardy, of course it was Adam Jones. I'll blame it all on the decongestant. That thing came with a dose cup, but it's easier to drink out of the bottle.

  6. Green death flavored Nyquil? I hope so.
