3 more cool additions including Eddie Lacy Topps Chrome Die Cut, Christine Michael Autograph and Carson Palmer Sepia

These are all inserts from 2013 Topps Chrome. I broke a box of this as I mentioned. I did purchase the Carson Palmer on the secondary market as part of a refractor lot on Ebay. The sepia cards are numbered to 99 as are the rookie camo Refractor autos. Appears that these are twice as plentiful as the Blue Wave refractor autos which have a very nice following on Ebay as I'm finding out. Even the scrub rookies like Tyler Wilson (never played a down for the Raiders) and Ryan Swope (retired before the season ever started due to concussions) are going for much more than other autographed versions in different products like Certified and even the high end Spectra. This is probably due to the huge following that Topps Chrome has from year to year.

Eddie Lacy has no fewer than 63 cards out of this product, plenty for the diehard Packer fans that had to be elatated with the emergence of this powerful running back. Even this base die cut rookie goes for anywhere from 5.00 to 10.00 on Ebay so chances are it would sell for 15-20 at a brick and mortar shop, especially in Wisconsin. 

I'd say that with this box I made my money back if I were looking at it from purely a dollars and cents perspective. The Christine Michael card certainly beat the odds at not only being an offensive player but ALSO from the champion Seahawks team AND being a shorter print autograph than what you'd normally expect to pull (the /600 variant being the most obvious and plentiful card that is likely to be pulled from a box.)
