Nice Mega Box Pull

Yesterday I was at Target running an errand. I swung by the card aisle, and was going to limit myself to just one pack. However, I noticed the Topps Update Mega Boxs (5 packs of Update, 2 packs of Chrome Update), so I decided to press my luck.

The five packs of Update were pretty boring. The first pack of Chrome was boring. On the very last pack, I was redeemed.

The first thing I saw when I opened the pack was a card #'d 12/99. Not bad. I couldn't see who it was yes.

Upon peeling the wrapped back a bit more, here was the back. Boom!
And upon flipping the front of the card over:

Nice! A Black Chrome Refractor of Bryce Harper! Not bad. I was hoping this would go for about $50 on eBay, bit unfortunately it goes for around $15-20. Still not bad. I've already got it listed, in fact. Half of me wants to keep it...I get attached to nice pulls. Ultimately though, this card is better served helping me get cards I really want. It's been fun owning it while it lasted.


  1. I also have a tendency to get attached to hot pulls that in all reality don't fit well in my collection. I've become a little better lately about letting go so that I can convert them into cards I want more.

  2. Nice pull anyways! I've been pretty lucky with the two mega boxes I've picked up. One had a Chris Davis Black Refractor and the other had a sapphire Jon Lester in the regular packs, both did pretty well up on the 'bay.
