An unexpected case hit!

Last Saturday I went to my LCS for an auction and before checking out I had my son pick us out two packs of 2015 Topps Chrome.

We each opened a pack when we got to the car. I didn't think I got anything good, but on Sunday I checked the odds of the insert card I got and was surprised to see that the Chrome Culminations card I got was 1:288 packs. That made it a case hit!

It's Yadier Molina so it's not the biggest name in the set, but with 20 cards in the set at 1 in every 288 packs it makes the odds of pulling any one player 1 in 5,760 packs.

I put it on eBay.I haven't sold anything on eBay in a while so I know I'm going to be sickened by all the fees, but at least it will cover the cost of the two packs. By the time this is posted I'm guessing that it will already be sold because I've already had 3 offers. 

Here is the rest of the pack, including a nice Jorge Soler RC. 


  1. Congratulations! It always feels good when you stumble across hidden treasures like this.

  2. Beating the odds is always a blast.

  3. Nice pull. The Soler is cool too.
