Mega fun opening a Mega Box
The term Mega Box confuses me a little bit.
The box tends to be larger than a traditional blaster, so I guess “mega” works. But then I open it and there are 7 packs, and a lot of empty space. Not so mega.
Anyhow, I recently made a Target run and was happy to find a bunch of these so-called Mega Boxes from 2017 Topps Chrome Update.
But first, I had to navigate through the carts of people’s unwanted crap. Always fun.
There were a probably 10-12 of the Chrome Update Mega Boxes, which was a nice site. I only chose one, knowing how my luck in retail usually goes.
Overall, I think I did fairly well. No SiCk HiTz, but the very first card in the first pack was this:
Nice. I also got the other rookie people tend to like.
And my best insert seeded 1:56 happened to be a Yankee #’d to 99, which doesn’t happen often.
And a Sanchez and Domingo German, so that was cool too.
The Rookie Cup inserts are seeded 1:2, and I ended up with four, so I slightly beat the odds. I was obviously most pleased with the Jeter, but the Bench and Seaver are pretty sweet too.
So while Mega Box might be a little confusing, the cards look great and they were fun to open. So I guess this qualifies as a mega success.
