Just FYI ... Along with the discounted blasters ...
 
Walmart has a new type of "value boxes", which contains some combination of 11 retail packs of 2012 A&G, 2012 Topps Chrome, and 2012 Platinum, for $20. Really pretty solid for those of you that like retail ... I picked one up this morning, and it had 6 A&G, 3 Chrome, and 2 Platinum packs.

The only problem is these are the left over packs from the searchers... I am guessing they can't find all of the hits, but they found a lot of them I am sure.

You are likely correct ... although wouldn't that also be the case for the Topps Value boxes that people are always posting good things about?

FWIW, although it was nothing special, I did pull an A&G relic (Michael Bourn).

The Topps value boxes had hobby packs in them, and were put together by Topps.

Don't buy value boxes as the one I bought at Wal-Mart (basketball) had junk and damaged cards.

I've bought 5 of them and hit 3 auto's from the platinum packs and 2 gu from the ginter plus a hand numbered to 25 lance berkman ginter mini,so I would say they are safe to buy.

I've purchased a few as well, nothing to write home about but pulled a relic from ginter and auto from platinum.

Hate to keep bringing up Meijers, but I love when they have their Mix boxes for Hockey and Racing.

Once pulled a Jeff Gordon glove card out of one and it was the special insert. Plus I seemed to get a decent mix of packs. For $15 you cant really go wrong.

Less than a buck a pack, if I ever went to Walmart I'd be tempted to get one of these. I love Ginter for the minis. Won't be exact odds, but I'm sure there are hits still out there to be had.

Nice...sounds like a fun rid at $20 to scratch the itch....less than $2 bucks a pack...

Sweet..maybe they are left from blasters?
