Two boxes of Topps Chrome

As the title says I recently busted a couple boxes of Topps Chrome. Overall I feel like the boxes were probably about average so I think I did ok. Here are the autos and color.




Davidson's stats in AAA left much to be desired in 2014 which lead to him never being called up to the Sox. But he's still young and has time to develop.

From what I can tell Garcia did not pitch in 2014 beyond an inning or two, I assume due to an injury. 

Elias had a strong rookie campaign for the Mariners this season going 10-12 with a 3.85 ERA in 29 starts. As a bonus he was just named to the Topps All-Rookie team meaning that his 2015 cards will feature the "Rookie Cup" logo. His future looks bright so I was happy to pull his auto.


I pulled this card just two days before the tragic car accident that took the lives of Oscar and his girlfriend. So many people have commented on his death that it's sad because he had so much promise and potential as a baseball player. I think that is incredibly selfish as a baseball fan to say that. Who cares about baseball. It's sad that a young man and young woman lost their lives because of a stupid decision and that a one year old boy will grow up never knowing his father. Ladies and gentlemen, please be responsible when consuming alcohol and NEVER drive after doing so.


  1. I'd love to trade for that Tulo if it is available. Perhaps an even bigger Braves for Rockies trade as well if you are up for it.

  2. I am very interested in the Taveras if it is for trade. Please email me at

  3. I'm with you on the commentary about his "promise and potential." The loss of a young man and woman due to irresponsible use of alcohol is sadder than anything to do with baseball.
