Group Break: 2015 Topps Chrome Box - Part 3

Whoops, apologies to all!  I thought I had this post scheduled to go live at 8:30 AM but I never changed the P to an A on the scheduling form.  My bad!  Here is today's post, better late than never.  Also, I am working hard to start upping the number of group break posts happening each day.  Unfortunately, I've been at work all day today (Sunday) so I am just now getting home, eating dinner, and now trying to make some headway with blog related things!  Thanks for being patient - and yes, more goodies will come soon!


This is the third (of four) parts of the 2015 Topps Chrome box that I busted for the group break.  I will have the video of the entire box break posted when I write the final post for the box.  Until then, enjoy the scans (and my witty commentary).

Pack 13:

Pablo Sandoval - Red Sox
Josh Reddick - Athletics
Yasmany Tomas - Diamondbacks
Prism Refractor:  Carlos Gomez - Brewers

It's nice to see the Brewers getting on the board with a parallel.

Pack 14:

Torii Hunter - Twins
Danny Santana - Twins
Devon Travis - Blue Jays
Refractor:  Masahiro Tanaka - Yankees

A very nice refractor for the Yankees - not that New York really needed much more from this box!  Nonetheless, pretty cool.  Also, who would have imagined getting two Twins in a pack with only four cards?!

Pack 15:

Kyle Lobstein - Tigers
CC Sabathia - Yankees
Brad Ziegler - Diamondbacks
Prism Refractor:  David Wright - Mets

Congrats to Keith who has the Mets - that prism refractor looks pretty sharp in person!

Pack 16:

Joc Pederson - Dodgers
Aroldis Chapman - Reds
Tommy La Stella - Cubs
Gallery of Greats:  GGR-08.  Mike Trout - Angels

That Gallery of Greats card is really, really sharp looking!  It's also a box hit seeing as how the Gallery of Greats are seeded 1:24 packs!  A huge congrats to Josh who claimed the Angels!

Pack 17:

Stephen Strasburg - Nationals
Carlos Santana - Indians
Rusney Castillo - Red Sox
Refractor:  Ken Giles - Phillies

I find it difficult sometimes to tell if a card is a refractor or not.  I hate the Topps doesn't mark the refractors in some...make it easy for those of us who sort cards in the basement where the light isn't as good!

Pack 18:

Adeiny Hechavarria - Marlins
Guilder Rodriguez - Rangers
Yorman Rodriguez - Reds
Jon Singleton - Astros

I scanned the Astros because that blue and yellow border combination is beautiful in Chrome!!

Not a bad quarter of the box - hard to complain about a Mike Trout box hit!  The final fourth of the box will be coming soon (and the corresponding box break video).  What will our final hit be?  Stay tuned!

I liked it when Topps used to put "refractor" on the back of the card right under the number. Those were the days.
