This set features at least 24 different brands. Some you are certain to remember, while others are newer. I found cards from nine different sets, which is quite a variety.
The price for a blaster box is $24.99, and there are four packs containing five cards in each pack. My local Target store had a slew of blasters, plus a few Mega Boxes.
The Mega Boxes guarantee one autograph and have 15 packs with five cards in each pack. The Mega also contains 10 Purple Velocity parallels.
If you are just looking for a taste, then the blaster box is a good choice. But if you are looking for some sizzle, the Mega Box is the way to go. It costs slightly less than two blaster boxes, too.
I just wanted a small sample, so I took the blaster box route.
The 100-card America’s Pastime brand has been designated as the “base set” for this product.
I am not going to speak to the designs, since there are too many. But I will mention what I pulled from each set.
There was one Score card of Seattle’s Logan Gilbert. This is a 25-card set.
Chronicles is a 50-card set, and I pulled one of Juan Soto.
Two Elite cards, Josh Bell and Sixto Sanchez, came from that 50-card set.
Timeless Treasures is a 20-card set, and I pulled one card of Joey Bart.
Certified contains 50 cards featuring players from the past and present, and also future stars. I found cards of Luis Robert and Kyle Lewis.
The Phoenix set has 25 cards, and I pulled Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Titan is a 25-card set and I pulled a Holo parallel of Whit Merrifield.
Crusade is a 25-card set and I pulled a rookie card of Jo Adell and a Holo parallel of Guerrero Jr.
Overdrive is a 25-card set that is appearing in Chronicles for the first time. I pulled Casey Mize and Trevor Larnach, plus a Holo parallel of Aaron Judge.
There were two Revolution inserts in the blaster that I pulled — Cody Bellinger and Ian Anderson — plus two blaster exclusive Groove parallels of Ryan Weathers and Manny Machado.
As you can see, Chronicles is a hodge-podge of sets thrown together in one issue. That may be fun for some collectors, but not for me. I like Topps Archives, for example, because it focuses on four distinct sets.
But up to 24? My head was spinning.
