Today is the release of 2014 Topps Chrome Football. I made my way over to Target to pick up a blaster box. This is my first Topps Chrome product purchase in a few years. Each blaster box contains seven packs and each pack contains four cards. Blasters purchased at Target receive an exclusive pack of four purple refractors for a total of 32 cards.
On the box Topps claims a rookie in every pack. I averaged about two rookies per pack including parallels. Here is the 32 card break down;
- 9 Base
- 9 Base Rookies
- 3 Rookie Refractors (Kony Ealy, Kevin Norwood, Loucheiz Purifoy)
- 1 Rookie Green Refractor (Justin Gilbert)
- 1 camo auto refractor /99 (Cody Hoffman)
- 2 X-Fractors (Roddy White, Jay Cutler)
- 1 Pick Refractor /399 (Le’Veon Bell)
- 1 Fantasy Focus (Tom Brady)
- 1 1985 Topps Insert (Austin Seferian-Jenkins)
- 4 Target exclusive Purple Refractors (Brandon Marhsall, Alshon Jeffery, Richard Sherman, Jimmy Graham)
Will I buy more?
Yes. Definitely. The cards look great and I love refractors. I beat the retail odds pulling the STS Camo Refractor Auto, but I don’t expect that with the next blaster. It would have been nice to get an extra base card or two per pack– No big deal. I really liked this break.
