WATCH: Blez Pulls Over 90 Auto Rookie Cards In 2023 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire Case Break!

It’s one of the craziest breaks you will ever witness. The Breaking Gods descended upon Blez Sports Cards very early Sunday morning during a case rip of 2023 Topps Chrome Sapphire Update Sapphire as a staggering 94 rookie autographs were pulled during a break.

Blez Baseball breaker Andrew Brown was showing off the cards from the first box when he hit back-to-back autos of Texas Rangers third baseman Josh Jung and Chicago White Sox outfielder Oscar Colas. Brown first thought it was just a glitch box with those two autos, but then he pulled a third, a fourth, and then a fifth. Overall, ten autos came out of the first box.

There was concern that all the case autos might have come out of the first box. The case contains ten boxes (eight packs per box-four cards per pack), with each box guaranteed an auto. But when Brown moved onto the second box, that concern quickly vanished, when a whopping 11 autographs were pulled!

And the insanity didn’t stop there. Fifty-two autos were hit in the first five boxes and 94 overall from ten boxes. Only one box had its normal single auto.

Surprisingly, there were no rookie autos of Adley Rutschman and Gunnar Henderson of the Orioles and Mets pitcher Kodai Senga. There were also no Sapphire Selection autographs in the case break. (Full transparency — I had the Toronto Blue Jays in the case break in hopes of pulling an autograph Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Sapphire Selection card.)

However, the breaking madness didn’t stop there. In the next case break of 2023 Topps Chrome Update Sapphire from the same pallet, another 38 autographs were pulled!

Over the span of two case breaks, 132 autographs were hit.

Call it a glitch case, call it a hot case, call it a treasure chest, there’s only one thing we know — we will most likely never see that sort of feat again.
