Mixer: 2010 Bowman Chrome

Box number three from the mixer case was 2010 Bowman Chrome. These can be had for a low price with the possibility of a Stephen Strasburg auto. The cards were VERY warped. I assume this is due to the same production issues that plagued 2010 Topps Chrome with the switch to a new printer. Still it was an enjoyable box to open. Though I'm not a fan of the black borders for the MLB players and white borders for prospects. I prefer them to be the same. Here are the highlights of the box.


Refractor 239/500

Blue Refractor 057/150

Mega PC pull! Definitely the best card in the box!!

At least the auto is someone I've heard of!

Liddi is the first Italian born baseball player to play in the Major Leagues. But he hasn't been able to stick around in the show having not gotten out of the minors since 2013. He still has some potential though.

Side note: Thank goodness Topps figured out in 2011 that Chrome autos look way better with a white colored area for signing rather than a silver signing area. The blue ink just does not stand out in the silver at all.
