Topps Chrome Blaster

I complained earlier that I had horrible luck with packs last year.  Well on Friday I decided to see if my luck had changed with the new year.  Spoiler alert: Yes.
1.  Koji Uehara.  The first pack yielded a base card of Koji Uehara, one of my current favorite players.

2.  Xfractor Xander Bogaerts RC.  Damn nice pull if I do say so myself.  A terrific parallel of the X-man.

3.  David Ortiz.  Now up to 489, 11 to go to meet my goal.

4.  Purple Refractor Jon Lester.  I will miss Lester.  He has been a big part of the team since he was drafted in 2002.  I remember when he was almost traded to the Rangers along with Manny Ramirez for Alex Rodriguez.

And here is the tradebait:
As usual, I am taking offers for Red Sox I need.  Mookie Betts is a priority right now, as well as anything on my wantlist.  Of course Sandy Alomar Jr. cards would also help.


  1. I'd love a shot at the two Harper's. I've obtained a few more BoSox Sega Card Gens for you on my trip.

  2. Who did you get? The first Harper is apparently pretty rare, but the Sega Card Gens are definitely hard to find.

  3. Well I picked up a bunch at random for you and Hoyle but some highlights include a "rare" foil parallel of David Ortiz from 2013 Sega card Gen.

  4. I would like to trade for the Stroman. Please email me at
