Should I just accept this fact?

Should I just accept this fact?
I've been trying to put the 2012 Bowman Chrome set together before my collecting goals start for 2013. Its seems that a lot of the cards are scratched on front. Should I just accept the fact that it is what it is and thats the norm for chrome? I was trying to put a real nice set together but I don't want to keep buying boxes and blasters just to find cards that aren't scratched. Any comments welcome.

Collecting past, present, and future catchers rookie and prospect cards.

It's going to be somewhat tough to find non-scratched ones. If it bugs you a lot then I think you have to find non-scratched ones.

Its really not a bother. Haven't done anything with chrome in awhile and was just wondering if this is the norm or if I've had a run of bad boxes. I guess this is part of the reason they changed everything to nm-mt in the OPG.

I put together the 1999 Bowman Chrome set back then and I swear to god every stinking card was scratched or had major pock marks. I sent in over half the set little by little asking for replacements. They were very compliant at first and the turn-around was quite quick. Then after awhile they got nasty and told me they would not be replacing any more of my cards because it was just impossible to please everyone.

Currently collecting A-Rod, Jeter, Cano, Mauer and Trout. I tend to be a fast shipper, work across the street from our post office.
