question on chrome retail blasters - rwgreen - 11-08-2012 07:28 PM

So with this years blasters since you get a relic card included does this mean you wont get an auto...because if you look at the box odds it doesnt say anything about autos....just refractors

my blaster didnt get a relic.

I am officially the authority on this now ... LOL

OK, when Platinum came out, all Target boxes got the guaranteed relics and all WalMart boxes got the (possible) autos ...

It's now reversed with Chrome ... guaranteed relics in WalMart boxes, possible autos in Target boxes.

I busted six WalMart blasters yesterday and pulled jerseys of Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson ... I busted one blaster of Target Chrome today and got nothing except for a Wilson base RC ...

So, if you want Platinum autos, go to WalMart.

If you want Chrome autos, go to Target.

If you're confused, looked at the listed odds on the boxes ...

Hmmmm, weird. Maybe it's like the hanger packs ... some feature the relics and some don't ... but that's weird, because the different styles of hanger packs were two different prices, but the Chrome boxes are all the same price.

Maybe it's just that way out here, but I know for a fact what I said is true in the Targets and WalMarts in the Bay Area.

At least Topps isn't making it confusing or anything LOL ...

How many boxes did you buy?


RE: question on chrome retail blasters - robsvideos - 11-09-2012 12:23 AM

I got my two blasters from target. I got no relics. One auto.


RE: question on chrome retail blasters - rwgreen - 11-09-2012 09:26 AM

Yup...just checked on this...my Wall mart had relics and target did not

Interesting way for Topps to do it, but I kinda like it. That way you can chase whichever you'd rather have.

Here in DFW that has been the case....Platinum Wally=Auto Chrome Wally=Relic and so on.
