Group Break Results: 2013 Topps Chrome

Still no Topps Update box but let's get into the Topps Chrome shall we?

Good luck everyone?

Cole Hamels - Phillies
Wade Miley Refractor - Diamondbacks
Julio Teheran - Braves
Miguel Montero - Diamondbacks

This will be the only simple refractor I will scan.  There will be a lot of them.  The Diamondbacks are mine as I recall.  Amy gets her first card of the box, as does I Don't Know.

Nick Franklin - Mariners
Mike Trout - Angels
Michael Wacha Refractor - Cardinals
Craig Kimbrel - Braves

Nice rookie refractor of a very good pitcher.  Good pull JediJeff.  The Junior Junkie checks in for the first time in the box.

Felix Hernandez - Mariners
Yadier Molina - Cardinals
Jeremy Hellickson Refractor - Rays
Josh Johnson - Blue Jays

A refractor for Dean.

Jon Lester - Red Sox
Hiroki Kuroda Refractor - Yankees
Allen Webster RC - Red Sox
Shane Victorino - Red Sox

This is an awesome pack for me.  Three out of four Red Sox, of course the other one had to be a Yankee and is the best card in the pack.

R.A. Dickey - Blue Jays
Starlin Castro - Cubs
Andrew McCutchen 1972 - Pirates
Adam LaRoche - Nationals

Nice McCutchen.  The Pirates are mine as well.

Clayton Kershaw - Dodgers
Adrian Gonzalez Chrome Connections - Dodgers
Desmond Jennings - Rays
Alex Rodriguez - Yankees

Baseball Dad gets his first two cards of the break, including one awesome die-cut card of A-Gon.

Shelby Miller - Cardinals
Evan Longoria Chrome Connections - Rays
Eury Perez RC - Nationals
Alex Colome RC - Rays

Another nice Rays pull for Dean.

Allen Craig - Cardinals
David Ortiz - Red Sox
Jurickson Profar 1972 - Rangers
Roy Halladay - Phillies

I Don't Know gets the Profar 1972 card.

Jeurys Familia RC - Mets
Miguel Montero Sepia Refractor 07/75 - Diamondbacks
Kyuji Fujikawa RC -Cubs
Matt Magill RC - Dodgers

Sepia Refractor goes to me.

PACK 10:
Brad Ziegler - Diamondbacks
Jonathan Papelbon - Phillies
Dan Straily - Athletics
Rob Brantly - Marlins

Nothing exciting.

PACK 11:
Ryan Zimmerman - Nationals
Mat Latos - Reds
Chase Headley - Padres
Mark Trumbo - Angels

Nothing exciting.

PACK 12:
Neftali Feliz - Rangers
C.C. Sabathia Black Refractor 070/100 - Yankees
Matt Kemp - Dodgers
Jacoby Ellsbury - Red Sox

Yankees get a black refractor of Sabathia.

PACK 13:
Jason Heyward - Braves
Jesus Montero - Mariners
Alex Gordon Refractor - Royals
Tyler Skaggs RC - Diamondbacks

Royals refractor goes to me, apparently.

PACK 14:
Michael Bourn - Indians
Josh Rutledge - Rockies
Alex Rios Refractor - White Sox
Jered Weaver - Angels

JediJeff gets a nice White Sox refractor.  He should be happy with that.

PACK 15:
Kendrys Morales - Mariners
Carter Capps - Mariners
Jim Johnson Refractor - Orioles
Jose Bautista - Blue Jays

I Don't Know gets an O's Refractor.

PACK 16:
Sean Doolittle RC - Athletics
Nate Freiman RC - Athletics
Dustin Pedroia Refractor - Red Sox
Trevor Rosenthal RC - Cardinals

Great, a Red Sox refractor for me.

PACK 17:
Zack Greinke - Dodgers
Carlos Martinez RC Xfractor - Cardinals
Paco Rodriguez RC - Dodgers
Martin Prado - Diamondbacks

JediJeff gets another nice card, this one an Xfractor.

PACK 18:
Chris Johnson - Braves
Curtis Granderson Xfractor - Yankees
Adrian Gonzalez - Dodgers
Dustin Pedroia - Red Sox

A Yankees Xfractor.

PACK 19:
Robbie Grossman RC - Astros
Joey Votto Xfractor - Reds
Didi Gregorius RC - Diamondbacks
Melky Mesa RC - Yankees

Baseball Dad gets the Reds Xfractor.

PACK 20:
Jay Bruce - Reds
Alfredo Marte RC Xfractor - Diamondbacks
Manny Machado RC - Orioles
A.J. Pierzynski - Rangers

A Diamondbacks Xfractor.  I am starting to wonder about the autographs.  There should be two...

PACK 21:
Shin-Soo Choo - Reds
Alex Wood RC - Braves
Yu Darvish Dynamic Die Cut - Rangers
Nelson Cruz - Rangers

A great pull of Yu Darvish for I Don't Know.  Still no autos...

PACK 22:
Matt Holliday - Cardinals
Brandon Maurer RC - Mariners
Kyle Gibson Auto Rookie Redemption - Twins
Casey Kelly Autograph - Padres
Jim Johnson - Orioles

And just like that we have both autos in the same pack.  I Don't Know drew the Padres so he gets the Casey Kelly autograph.  I drew the Twins, so I get the lame redemption.

PACK 23:
Zack Wheeler RC - Mets
Troy Tulowitzki - Rockies
Paco Rodriguez Auto Rookie Variation Refractor - Dodgers
Giancarlo Stanton - Marlins

Huh.  Another auto?  This one goes to Baseball Dad who is having some good luck with the Dodgers in this break so far.  He got the bat card in the Panini box as well.

PACK 24:
Carlos Gonzalez - Rockies
Freddie Freeman - Braves
Max Scherzer - Tigers
B.J. Upton - Braves

And that's it.  Hopefully everyone is happy with their pulls so far.


  1. Two autos in one pack - Good ol' Topps fine collation in action again. At least we beet the odds with an extra auto.

  2. Missed this post too ! Just did the redemption. Cards were great for Dodgers ! only one Tribe card and no Giants ( glad they weren't my pick !)
    I know these things are a dice roll.
