Busting a 2014 Topps Chrome Football Blaster

2014 Topps Chrome Football Empty Packs

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.

The Contents

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.
