Default "Gems of the Game" retail blaster break. 08 Chrome Gold Mantle?

So I head to Walmart to blow a little of my giftcard we received from work. No 2011 Value boxes, 1 Chrome, no rack packs worthy of buying and no Gypsy Queen. Damn the luck.

I see "Gems of the Game Series 1". "One graded rookie, game used, or auto plus 10 packs". Rings up $6.49 plus tax. (Don't know how correct this is considering the disarray of the shelves).

Didn't get a GU, auto, or graded jack**** but did get this parallel from 08 Topps Chrome in a top loader. (Stolen pic but same card).

I have the blue one. Blue is like selling around 10
Gold can sell for around 20-30 dollars!

Stay away from Gems of the Game. I fell for the same thing, but twice. Funny story actually: I saw graded auto or GU in each box so I went for one. I scored a really sweet Peyton Manning EDGE parallel (?) numbered to 6000 with a screen printed autograph on the front. I made the God-awful mistake of trying another one, surely I'd get SOMETHING the next time around. Got the exact same Peyton Manning card in the second box. No auto, no GU, no graded cards. Nothing. Complete rip off in fact. Stay away forever.

Sweet, I hope you're right. "Back to the bay with you Nessie".

And I won't be buying another one. The packs are total garbage too. If this thing sells for $10 I'll be stoked. Although I did want to see if the rest would ring up $6.49.
