Wow, it’s hard to believe it has been 50 days already for the Wax Cracker Project!  I hope you all have enjoyed the journey so far and will stick with me as I make my way toward 100 packs in 100 days.

I am sticking with the 2013 Bowman Chrome for tonight’s cracking.  Below are my 3 cards from today’s pack:

2014-02-19 18.37.53
Cody Asche, Carlos Martinez RC, & Desmond Jennings

This was a great pack and I will give it a YEAH rating.  Cody Asche was called up last season to help the Phillies and he showed a promising bat.  Carlos Martinez, Cardinal and a member of my Cuban Defectors fantasy team, hit in this pack with his Rookie Card.  I look for Martinez to have a breakout year in St. Louis.  To round out the pack, I got a Desmond Jennings.

One thing I don’t like about Bowman Chrome is how the cards tend to warp because of the high gloss production.  I feel like there is a need to put all the cards in a rigid card protector to keep them flat.  Other than that I really like the Bowman product line.

What are the best rookie or prospect cards you have hit for recently?  Share your hits with me at and I will include them in one of my upcoming posts.

Until tomorrow, check out some of the great deals over at Steel City Collectibles.  Make sure to take advantage of the WAXCRACKER5OFF coupon code to get $5 off your order of $50 or more.
