Default Anyone grab any 2012 triple play?

I just saw these on another site, and grabbed 10 boxes - the design looks awesome! Sucks that the rookies don't have a rookie logo on them, and the memorabilia cards are not of a specific player, but I think I've fallen in love with the base design. We'll see when they get here though, if I change my mind when they are in hand

what do you dislike about it? Is it the card stock? Or are you just not a fan of the cartoony style card?

I grabbed a couple of packs since I couldn't say no to the really cheap price.
For me the lack of logos is really the only thing that brings it down. Eye black, tattoos and stickers with team logos on them would've made it a really good product IMO.
Other than that I was really pleased with what I got. A simple set with fun inserts and drawings that actually look like the players. Investors will probably hate it (which is another reason why I like it lol) but collectors'll find some sort of enjoyment in it whether it's the price or the throwback feel of it.

Agreed - this thing appears to smack of the 1994 fun packs - and those were a blast. I don't think I really loved the early 90's triple play stuff, but this looks great to me.

Looks ugly to me, but that's my opinion.

I feel like it's a good product for kids who want to start collecting. Not something I would open for fun personally, but if I had a young collector in my life I would definitely buy it for them.
