Default Panini Retrospective...this is just silly

Meijer had these for 20% off, so I figured what the hell. I picked up two boxes for about 17 each. The results were absurd, but in a good way.









I know I got insanely lucky, but are people seeing a hit a box out of these on average?

I've opened about 8 of these. All but 2 had hits. I've hit an Anthony Davis auto and just yesterday hit a Kevin Durant redemption auto.

That's absurd. That's your 160 back and then some. These were pretty smart on Panini's part, but I doubt the hobby shops are too thrilled with them.

I agree I wish they would do this more often. The closest card shop to me is about 70 miles away.

They are MSRP $20. You get 5 hobby packs. 2 elite. 2 P & P and 1 contenders. It looks like most people are getting a hit a box.

My walmart has a ton of these. I keep passing over them but might have to give them a try after everyone pulling seer cards from them.

Default These Can Be Legit...

Pulled this hit out of the lone pack of Contenders out of one of these blasters from a Wal-Mart. Was extremely surprised and pleased to say the least. It's nice scoring some hobby packs and having a decent chance at some hits without having to venture to an LCS. I agree with the above-poster that if this gets to be too regular and popular, LCS and hobby shops may take issue. BA

I haven't seen any of these around here. With my luck I would buy this and pull nothing. Haha

I might have to get one too..But I'll probably get the box with the best hit being an insert worth .25 cents

That's a great pull. I love that you are getting $30 in unsearched packs for $20.

They're like chrome/silve blaster boxes. I bought one and got nothing so there are duds amoung the craziness. A lot like the Topps Value Football Boxes

I don't have a picture of the boxes, but they are the exact same size as the regular blaster boxes at Wal-Marts/Targets and are bright shiny silver and say "Retrospection Collection" in big red/white/blue text. The boxes also have other info. on the outside of the box stating it's 5 hobby packs and what those packs are, which are, as previously stated by another poster, 2 Past/Present, 2 Elite and 1 Contenders all from 2012-2013. I hope this helps at least a little. I have five (5) Wal-Marts/Targets in my area and only one of the five stores has these boxes, which is the one Wal-Mart that has the largest card section, so it must be hit and miss if they are carrying them or not.
