2010 Topps Chrome Football Hobby

Don't worry I didn't pay $4.99 for this pack. I'm not a huge chrome guy. I hate when the cards start to curl up, but I do like pulling refractors. These packs only come with four packs which is sad. I know 2010 Topps Chrome also only comes with 4. From what i've read and heard, Topps missed on this set. So let's see what I get.

Front.

#C151- Joey Porter.

Frank Gore 50th Anniversary Reprint Insert.

C43- Eli Manning.

C213- Nathaniel Allen RC.

Ew horrible pack. Even the insert is horrible! Nothing good here. Unless you pull one of the RC short prints, this is just a regular set. If you noticed on some of the scans the cards look like they are covered in a powder, don't worry you're not seeing things. Topps finally put some powder on the cards so that they don't stick to each other. Either that of i'm going to die in a few minutes....

So terrible pack, basic looks to the cards again, and this is NOT a winner in my book!

As someone who's new to collecting, why do the Chrome cards curl?

Just the way they are made with that "Chrome" look. The front of the cards have the "Chrome" on them, but the backs don't...so I think when they cut the cards they tend to curl towards the back.
