Dont believe the hype folks.. It is not all that and a bag of chips..

In fact I got bored after the first few packs

I got the stated hits

Autos of david Phelps and carlos martinez

2 GU one mini of beltre all white now and the other a full size card all blue of Edwin Encarcion

Even hit a bonus in pack one of a Julio teaheren press plate magenta!

Now to sum it up

Parallelled to death.

regular minis
Black minis
red minis
framed big sized cards
A mini box of minis that are all variations??!!


Short prints like ginter 301-350

Reverse negatives.. not sure I got any of those but..

Insets Dealing Aces, first time all stars, the gypsy queen parallels like old time sepia cards

im sure there are better autos and GU than what i got although i was happy with the cardinal martinez auto

I just do NOT like the grainy looking photos, the backs have no stats and Im sick and tired of parallels being the reason manufacturers , like Topps, think we buy boxes.

If i am right I need at least 7-8 boxes in order to complete a base set 1-350

at $110 a box they can pound sand!

Again i got sucked in by the hype only to get spit out like a rotten seed!

Thought about trying a box of this but wasnt sure since I dont buy alot of baseball. I got a pack or two of last years and liked the look of it. At least your minis sounded good.

On the other hand I do like variations but it can get out of hand sometimes
