Well, that wraps up the recap.Final Thoughts
We didn't hit anything major, but I thought it was a success overall.
I was very impressed with Gypsy Queen. I thought we got a lot of nice stuff out of the box, I liked the look of the cards. The Autos are both on-card (definite plus). The relics look good especially the framed mini. The checklist for the product is great! The SP variations add a nice twist to an already great checklist. I think it was the best value in the break.
I also thought 2011 Topps Chrome was a pretty good value. We got a few nice refractors of well known players. The Autos are of up and comers so we'll have to wait a while to see if they pan out. Downside- sticker autos
Still not bad.
1978 Topps- Nothing big, but you just can't go wrong with pack fresh vintage.
2010 UD Retail- I was pleasantly surprised. Nothing major, but we landed a Buster Posey RC and that Adrian Gonzalez Die-Cut is a beauty. It was free and provided some value. That's a combo I like!
1999 Bowman Chrome Series 1- Ugh. There's a reason it's still on the shelf..... that's where it belongs. The collation was horrible and that's my biggest complaint. I could understand if it was an 89 release....but by 99 Topps should have had it figured out. I knew there wasn't much in the way of big name RCs, but I was extremely disappointed by how few refractors and inserts we received.
Bowman aside, I thought we did good. Thank you all again for participating. I'll get to packing these up. I hope you had fun and we'll see you next month.
