12-13 Panini Timeless Treasures Inner Case (10 Boxes) Rip
I opened a sealed inner case of this product. Was quite fun to open albeit the return is not very good. Here's the box by box recap:
Glass RC (of 499): Jimmer Fredette, Kevin Murphy
Timeless Signatures: Spud Webb Redemption
Glass RC (of 499): Derrick Williams
Glass RC Platinum (of 1): Marquis Teague
Timeless Signatures: Sean Elliott
The Platinum is just the regular rookie with blue foil. Teague's decent.
Glass RC (of 499): Jordan Hamilton, Enes Kanter
Treasured Threads (of 99): Derrick Rose
Glass RC (of 499): Quincy Acy
Die-Cut (of 199): Paul Pierce
Time to Shine (of 49): Anthony Davis
Treasured Threads (of 99): Tayshaun Prince
My favorite card of the break - the AD is on card.
Glass RC (of 499): Jeff Taylor
Treasured Threads Prime (of 10): Gary Payton
Validating Marks (of 99): Derrick Favors
Cool patch with ten different color breaks. GP was one of my all-time favorites.
Glass RC (of 499): Josh Harrellson Redemption, Tobias Harris, Andrew Nicholson
Glass RC (of 499): Josh Harrellson Redemption, Arnett Moultrie
Treasured Ink (of 199): Bernard King
Two Harrellson redemptions? Ugh.
Glass RC (of 499): Jon Leuer, Isaiah Thomas
Die-Cut (of 199): Dirk Nowitzki
Perennial Materials (of 149): Shawn Kemp
Glass RC (of 499): Festus Ezeli, Kendall Marshall
Time to Shine (of 199): Marshon Brooks
Glass RC (of 499): Gustavo Ayon
Timeless Signatures (of 199): Ralph Sampson
Validating Marks (of 199): Gary Forbes
The last pick was thinner than usual so I was expecting something decent, however it might have been the worst tin of the group.
Summary: At around $100 a tin, it's very similar to Limited - short and sweet without a lot of chaff. Because the rookie checklist is so diluted, I think the rookies are the weak hits. And because the cards come in plastic shrink-wrap, you can kind of guess if your pack is gonna be a stinker or not. Like I said, tough return but still fun to open.
Not selling or trading. All will be on eBay in near future.

this was a better case probably than any of the 4 i watched chris open on youtube while i watched the basketball games tonight. primarily because of the ad, the 1/1 should probably be $100+ too.
the price point on this product makes it pretty much unopenable if you care at all about getting some money back. i dont think i would even open this product at $30 a tin. they should have at least made it 3 patches per 10 box case & added 1 more jersey per tin also. i havent looked at the checklist, are auto/patches even available? in 5 cases i havent seen 1 so far.
i think the only product this year thats somewhat worth opening based on return is retail prizm, maybe hobby if you can afford that, at least you have a chance for a 500-1k+ gold prizm in that, if fairly rare.
