2011 Bowman Chrome blaster recap

I was sort of excited to find this 2011 Bowman Chrome blaster [$19.99 each] at the card aisle of a Target in Brea, California - I want to mention this is the first time I've visited a two-story Target with a parking garage like a mall.

However even with an apparent insert or a parallel lurking in each retail pack - there is just something lacking about only having three cards per pack / eight packs per blaster for a total of 24 cards. I was hoping against all odds to pull some 'ink,' though no autographs were pulled from this particular blaster.

I do like the inserts though it's probably better to purchase them individually or a set - rather than looking to pull random ones through loose pack / blaster box purchases.
