Pack Break: 2009 Topps Platinum Football

When I walked into my local Fred Meyer store looking for something new, which doesn't show up nearly enough there, I was surprised to see a half empty box of Platinum sitting there. I had never even heard of these before but I have to try every product at least once. With only 4 cards per pack, I'm sure someone easily bought up any packs with any auto patch cards in them, if there were any to begin with. Odds for those start at 1:350 for group A, more for groups B and C. Any other hits would be a refractor or auto.

The rookie in this pack is different from the other cards as both the front AND back have a glossy finish.

These cards are tough to scan, but if I could describe them, they look like they were printed on the shiny side of some aluminum foil, but I guess they didn't want to name the set aluminum though.

Future pack breaks:
  • 1988 Topps Leaders Baseball
  • 1993 Upper Deck Fun Pack Baseball
  • 2008 Upper Deck SP Baseball x3
  • 2010 Topps Baseball Hobby
Feel free to suggest which one I do next.
