2013 Topps Chrome is here! What's in a Case Part 1 of (11 or 12 or something)

I have received my case from UPS! I locked in early on the price and looking at box breaks it seems like there is some cool stuff out there. I am excited to get started and share with everyone. Welcome back to my series of posts called "What's in a Case!". We will share this journey together and hopefully pull a million great things!

This year, I have a scanner! I will scan the inserts and some interesting things and the autos!

Check out Box 1:

In this year's Chrome there is a couple more inserts then last year. The 1972 reprints are full size and fall 2 per box. They are nice nothing too special about them though. The Dynamic Diecuts fall 1 per box, they aren't nearly as diecutty as last year but I won't lie I was happy to see Puig in the first box. The Connections diecuts fall 2 per box. They connect so you can make some sort of baseball never ending puzzle. I like how the team colors are on the border, really makes them pop. 

In this box I hit one blue (light blue this year)  numbered out of 199, black numbered out of 100 and red numbered out of 25. Nice to hit such a low numbered refractor in the first pack. I'm sure some Dodger fan out there wants it. The Trout is pretty sweet as all you fans out there know, he's pretty good. 


The autos started out with a bang! The Profar was the first auto of the box! He is the future in Texas and could be quite a good player. Wil Myers was called up this year by Tampa and had a good season too. The autograph checklist this year is pretty strong so lets hope to get some of the good ones.

There's no denying it, I love the Chrome release (it got me back into collecting in 2011). I am super excited to bust the rest of this and hope everyone enjoys seeing What's in a Case?!

Thanks for reading!


  1. If you feel like letting go of any of the Ranger or Nats hits you pull, I'll be more than happy to work something out with you!!!

  2. That Profar auto is pretty nice. It looks like the autographs are actually hard-signed, too, which is a bonus. That Trout is a good pull.

  3. If you ever want to get rid of any Cardinals I'm your man. :) Good luck with the rest of your boxes. Nice Myers.

  4. That's a pretty hot start. I'd be interested in any Pirates you come across.

  5. Will Myers needs to work on his penmanship. What he put on that card is total crap. Good luck with the rest of your case! I can't wait to see what else you get.

  6. Damn that's a sweeeeet box, congrats!

    Please keep me in mind for any Kemp, Kershaw, and Russell Martin parallels you're not attached to.

    Oh, and any Puigs if they were to become trade bait ;)

  7. Profar and Myers are solid autos to start your box. As a Red Sox fan I watch a lot of AL East baseball and Will Myers is the real deal. I remember secretly wanting the Red Sox to deal Lester for him in the off-season (which was rumored at the time), but then ultimately Kansas City dealt him to Tampa Bay for James Shields. Kind of worked out fine for the Sox in the end given that they won the AL East this year. I confess I haven't seen much of Profar but that Myers auto is sweet (even though his signature sucks).
