2020 Topps Chrome Update Mega Box (Box 3)

Here it is...the third and final box. Will this complete the trifecta of duds? 


Pack 1

Already off to a good start. Nico Hoerner no dupes.

Pack 2

Nothing to write home about here.

Pack 3

The second of the two Bryce Harper cards in the set and the Jesus Luzardo rookie.

Pack 4

Mike Schmidt insert.

Pack 5

Trent Grisham rookie.

Pack 6

Gavin Lux insert.

Pack 7

The last pack (believe it or not) is where it finally starts to get good. Just pulling the Bo Bichette rookie would make it a fantastic pack. These are cards 1, 3 and 4...card 2 was quite surprising.

Randy Arozarena rookie. But not the base card... is the gold refractor version...numbered 03/50. I did not see any of these listed on eBay, however Beckett lists it at $400. (I do know that means absolutely nothing.)

So that last pack was better than anything in the box prior, plus the previous 2 boxes. I'll be putting up a want list for this set soon, unfortunately I still need a lot of the bigger dollar cards. 

Thanks for reading!

What I'm listening to while I post this:

Wild Colonials - This Can't Be Life


  1. Nice pull! I bought a Chrome Update box on a whim and pretty much had instant buyer's remorse. Having trouble remembering a single card I pulled from it.

  2. Nice find! There's high dud potential with these because there are so few cards, but I still always liked buying them at retail prices. I feel like even the base cards make for good trade bait, since it's a Target exclusive that not everyone sees.

  3. Congrats on the salvage! I was just at my Target and the card aisle was completely stocked, with no flippers around! Maybe things are getting better!
