But have you ever heard of "hot boxes"? Those are supposedly boxes of cards (typically hobby boxes) which are loaded with extra hits.
In 2012 Topps Chrome, there are hot hobby boxes which contain all base refractors. In fact, there are even hot blaster boxes which contain all refractors too.
Little did I know that there were also hot retail boxes of 2012 Bowman Platinum which contained all gold parallel base cards. I didn't realize this until I had actually stumbled upon this box.
2012 Bowman Platinum
Base, Gold Parallel
Found in a hot box
That cannot be a coincidence. That cannot be dumb luck. It had to have been a deliberate move by Bowman.
I wasn't planning on trying to put together an all gold base parallel set but it seems as if I'm practically a third of the way there with all the gold parallels I picked up.
