    My 1st box of 2008 Chrome...SWEET Auto Scans!!

    So I decided to take a "wild" stab at a box of this years Chrome...my local shop hooked me up with a box for $60!! Overall I got COMPLETELY hosed on the refractors (1 blue, 6 veterans, 0 prospects, and no xfractor ) and a Fukudome Japan base. The auto is pretty nice though...

    The only refractors



    Chris Nash Blue Refractor 94/50...(any good??)



    and now for the auto...

    Very very nice break!

    Any chance the Ellsbury is FT? I am going for the Red Sox ref set. I have Beckett, Schill, Papi, and Pedroia so far.

    Yeah, cause I am always optimistic...esp in the box breaks.

    Great break, congrats man. You did good on the autos

    I had no idea the above statement was optimistic (and that is probably what i post more...)

    Nice break on the auto. My box was the same in that I got all vet refractors and one blue prospect ref. Then in the last pack Vilalona redmption, mine is just base but pretty happy with it. Anyway, congrats.
