Impromptu Break: 2015 Topps Finest Football Walmart Blister Packs

 If you go to the Blowout Cards Football Box Breaks Forum, all you'll see is a rash of breaks of these Topps Finest Blasters that apparently you can only get at Wal Mart. The cool thing about them is they are hobby packs so curiosity got the best of me and I made the drive to our local Wal Mart to see if they had some in stock. They had 4, so I went ahead and bought all 4 of them. Here's how I did

Refractors
Kelvin Benjamin
Mike Evans
Brandon Marshall

Atomic Rookies
Todd Gurley (#173/299)
Bryce Petty
Buck Allen

95 Finest Refractor Insert
Eddie Lacy

Magneta Printing Plate (1/1)
DeAndre Hopkins

Auto Patch Rookies
Tyler Lockett
Justin Hardy Blue (#69/150)

Overall Thoughts: Fun little rip that ended up having three hits. I'd never pulled any type of 1/1 before last week, now it's 2 in two weeks. Admittedly of course, Printing Plates aren't exactly in demand. Unless autographed, they don't sell very well, but still, it's cool to pull a 1/1. I love the look of the base set and the refractors are cool. I pulled my first Gurley card and though not the best of hits, I did pull 2 auto patches out of the 4 blasters. I think they're worth a shot if you need a quick pack fix.  Pics of the cards

Better patch, also numbered to 150. Maybe he'll get a chance to step up with Roddy White gone.
