I typically don't purchase "chrome" cards. However, I have seen the reviews, posts, etc. on the Internet, and I became intrigued. Today, I purchased a rack pack of Topps Chrome and Bowman Platinum. First, I'll review Topps Chrome. 4 cards per pack, at almost $4.00 a pack, so I opted for the rack pack, which is $10.00 and you get 3 packs, and 3 bonus cards, which were orange refractors. I don't care for Topps Chrome. I only received 1 refractor card, on top of the 3 orange refractor cards. They are all up for trade. See my Zistle link to the right to check out everything I got.
Out of the 3 orange refractors I got, this was the one I liked the most. The other two were Ricky Romero and Y. Gallardo from Milwaukee.
Bowman Platinum...I HEART YOU! These cards are awesome! I love them! I love the design and the picture quality is phenomenal! Here's what I got:
I don't really like Kevin Youkilis, but the picture says it all. You can see the dirt on his elbow pad, batting gloves, and helmet. This is an awesome set! Where have I been all these years! I did receive a few Bowman Platinum cards in a trade, but I didn't care for the 2011 design. I did pull a ruby Ryan Braun.
My favorite card I pulled. My first Bubba Starling card, and it's a refractor, no less!
Since the single packs were $4.00, I also purchased a rack pack of the Bowman, which was $10.00. Included in the rack pack were 3 refractors, which were purple.
