Right on cue, Andrew Luck Kills it on TNF as 2012 Topps Chrome Releases, Blue Wave Refractor Info

Luck pulls ahead in ROY race

Okay it wasn’t his record breaking performance of the week before but the now 6-3 Colts led by rookie Andrew Luck handled the Jaguars just as any decent team should: by 17 points. 2012 Topps Chrome Hobby boxes and packs release today while retail has been in stores like Target and Walmart as early as monday. Exclusive orange refractors found in rack packs ($9.99 most places) are selling very well especially of bigger names. Luck in the $20-25 range, Trent Richardson in the $5-10 range, and RGIII in the $10-20 range. Considering every $9.99 rack pack comes with a 3 pack of orange refractors, and of course the rest of the rack pack I would recommend getting out and grabbing all the rack packs you can find.

Ugly Auto Patches

Meanwhile the first Auto Patch RC of RGIII has surfaced and is over $100 in the first day of bidding. I expect this one to finish around $400.

I’m not in love with the design on these compared to the on card autos and vertical design but there is no denying the rarity and value here.


And don’t forget, get a redemption and you will not only get the autograph eventually but also a “Blue Wave” refractor pack which can contain autos of Alfred Morris, Josh Gordon, Daryl Richardson, Brandon Bolden, Bobby Wagner, Vontaze Burfict, Jorvorskie Lane, Greg Zuerlein, Joseph Morgan, Rod Streater, Bryce Brown and Damaris Johnson. Richardson, Morris, Zeurlein and Burfict could be nice hits out of these. Each redemption will get you a three card pack of blue wave refractors with randomly inserted autos.


Mini Mayhem

I love these things. Tall boy minis are so cool. A mix of rookies and retired legends team with throwbacks from 1957 and 1984.

I’ll let a few pics speak for themselves…
