2016 Topps Chrome hobby jumbo box - Nola shows up AGAIN

This was the last box I bought from the show in July. I always enjoy breaking Topps Chrome. At this point this set has been completely analyzed by anyone and everyone so I won't bother with the non-color and non-auto cards. Nothing special in the inserts department. The usual smattering of regular refractors. Now for the color.

Blue Wave Refractor #41/75

Purple Refractor #159/275

And now the autos





And there is number three. In one day, in one breaking session, three different boxes, three different products, two different manufacturers I pulled Aaron Nola's auto three times. I had previously pulled his auto from 2015 Bowman's Best. So I already think it's abnormal with the low amount of breaking I do that I've personally pulled his auto four times. But pulling it three times in one day? That takes the cake.

Refractor #322/499

Blue Refractor #021/150

And a nice Trea Turner auto to finish out the box.

And count 'em up, yep! Six autos!! This was also the second box in the break that I pulled an extra hit after Allen & Ginter. It's normal to pull extra hits from Panini products, but Topps? I think I had only had that happened to me once previously. I've gotten shorted hits from Topps products more than I've pulled extras. So this was nice.

October show boxes coming soon!
