Default 1 Box 2008 Topps Allen & Ginter

Ok decided to break a box:

Going to add to the speculation on Topps' lack of quality control...I got five hits in the box.

Mike Hampton GU 1Clr
Melky Cabrera GU 1Clr
Jason Varitek GU 1Clr
Andre Ethier Auto
Jeff Francis Auto




Also go a Ty Cobb Mini paralell (not sure if these are SP or not)?

Pics will be added when I get home from work.

Not bad, I only got one auto per every 3-4 boxes last year.

Seems like a lot of boxes have been getting extra hits. As long as this keeps up that is not a bad thing at all, it should drive boxes up. If that is the case maybe I'll just be selling my two cases instead of opening one.

Yeah when I was at the shop cracking it open I hit the first two jerseys in the first 8 packs. Guy at the shop said I was done I had gotten the two hits. Kept ripping and kept announcing I got an xtra.

Matts I was thinking the same thing. Maybe they should have inserted a piece of the ace bandage he uses for all of his damn injuries.

I thought it was 2 autos in every box [or other special hit], seemed that way from the Beckett video. Is it 1 per or 2 or unknown?

It is 2 hits per box on average. That doesn't mean you are guaranteed that number. You could get more or less.

Two weeks from now when people are building/finishing building sets the mini's and sp's will sell well(Maybe a buck each). A complete set of them gets premium. I will try to finish the set with a mix of hobby and retail. I found that last year the retail contained many packs with double mini's and lots of black border mini's. Make sure you check the backs for no numbers and Allen and Ginter backs which are parrell sp's.
