Default 2012 Topps Mini Box?

Has anyone busted a box of this? Seems like a fun break. And a chance at some good cards!

Busted 18 boxes so far, have 14 more coming Wednesday.

Fun, decent break, but autos are hard to hit.

Platinum /5 fall every 2-3 boxes, plates every 3 boxes, Gold /61 are about 5 a box.

I just ripped a case, it was a blast. I hit the Trout /5 and (3) trout jerseys. Thinking about another one, but don't want to push my luck. The real question is.....Will the Golds /61 hold value?

The golds are selling great as of now. I think this is a rip and flip product with only keeping ones you PC.

I agree, but some of the golds already went unsold today. Maybe I am just talking myself out of another case

I mean the golds of scrubs probably won't sell great but If you get the bigger guys then those sell well. And to make 50$ back shouldn't be too hard on each box if your bustin a case.

Golds are starting to slow down, they were HOT at release, doubled my money on the first break, will definetly make money on my second.

Yes, 32 boxes total is what I will bust. Def worth it, but now that people are starting to catch on, more will be out there. Still, fun break for 50 bucks.

I'm waiting for some paypal funds to finalize, and then I'm going to order myself a box! Seems cool and has a very generous pricetag

If you do the math, 661 cards to the set x 61 golds per player = 40,321 divided by 5 gold per box = 8064 boxes. Autos fall 1 per every 6 boxes and there are 31 autos so about 40 of each player.

if they had one in ser. 1 and one card in ser.2 that is why they have 2 base cards.

it's better to do the math with the plates.
661x4=2644
they fall in one every 66 packs 2644x66=174,504
174,504 divide by 24=7,271 boxes
if there were cases 7,271 divide by 12=605.91666,
606 cases
There are 50.84 autos of each,if non are sp's

I got $102 in an auction for 19 gold parallels #/61, there's definitely value in these boxes.

Did 12 boxes today. Pulled 3 autos Kaline, Kershaw and Billingsley. 3 boxes had no hits but one had an autograph and relic, so shorted 2 relics, no big deal. Last box half the packs only had 8 cards instead of 10 but I wasn't shorted the golds. I got 4 printing plates and 5 black bordered #/5 and pulled 6 Harpers. Overall very pleased

The sets seem to bring some good results on the bay. If you crack enough you can make your money back on base sets alone.

I busted 2 boxes and have 10 stashed away.

I got a Chad billingsly auto in my first box with common golds.

2nd box yeilded a Mariano Rivera platinum /5 that I sold lastnight for $50. Also got a Rajai Davis plate.

It's because it covers series 1 and 2,if they had cards in both series that's why.

I sold a lot of 37,and believe there wasn't a big name in the bunch.I got over $200. One box really isn't enough,you might only get one jersey card and golds.
