Breaking 90's:1998 Topps Chrome Football Pack Break

Well, my obsession with ripping 90's packs came to a all-time high when I was able to rip a pack of 1998 Topps Chrome football. Probably one of the most sought after Topps Chrome football products because of it's rookie class. You have Randy Moss, Charles Woodson, Fred Taylor and of course Ryan Leaf. Ooops, I mean Peyton Manning. I think the Chargers were thinking the same thing.

Don't be fooled by the pack price of $2.99 on here. They don't go for that anymore. I landed mine for $10.99 which is a high gamble to me for 4 cards but it was a time traveling risk I was willing to take. Did it pay off or get my money back? Well you can be the judge of that...

Neil O'Donnell

Darnay Scott

Herman Moore

And a little bit of boom in this pack. Refractor!! Only two per box and I found one in a pack. Stoked!!

 
You can see the word refractor by the card number on the back. Vanover didn't really pan out but I think it's a great pull still.

Overall I was happy to spend the money on this pack. Brought back some memories of my father and I ripping tons of it and I got a refractor. 

Also this is the start of my set chase as well. I do have a Peyton already so I knocked the big one out. Now just need the rest of the set which you can find my set needs on this link, 1998.

  1. That's a fun rip! The 1998 design is so sweet. I opened a bunch of '98 but never Chrome. Jealous!

  2. Before reading the price you paid... I was thinking... this was going to be a pretty pricey pack break... and I was right. We couldn't keep this product in stock back in the late 90's and early 2000's when I worked at the card shop located across from the street from the school I taught at.

    1. Chrome was amazingly hot and limited at the one place I could buy it from. I was lucky to open what I did.

  3. Fun pack. Neil O'Donnell in that Jets uni is a fun card. Congrats on the refractor.

  4. You're considerably braver than I, as there is no way that I'd ever consider buying a $10+ pack of cards -- but if you're happy with it (and the results), that's all that matters :)

    1. Normally I am not that brave, just had to once lol. Especially since I broke a pack of all the other years.
