Default Wasting $35 At Target

So I went into Target to grab a watch band, turns out they dont have any so I strolled over to the packs and saw a few of the boxes that contain assorted packs and decided to throw my money down the drain. I never have any luck with these...

Up first is the "Monster Box" which contains 5 Hoops packs, 2 Prizm packs and 1 RWB pack.

The Hoops packs were horrible, although I did get a Red Nerlens which I've actually been wanting. I like how the red parallels look. I didnt have much with the 2 Prizm packs either, but I was surprised they were hobby packs. Luckily the RWB pack had a Kawhi sittin on top of it and a LaMarcus in there.

Last is the mystery Red box, I was assuming there was going to be just 2 Prizm packs and the rest Prestige, but there were 7 Prizm packs in there, 1 Press Pass and 2 Prestige. Unfortunately they were retail, not hobby.

Got more color than I expected, but nothing great. Should've spent the $35 on ebay.

Yeah man, you are lucky. I bought one of those boxes (not the monster) and did not even hit a Prism parallel of any sort. Just base and HRX cards. You got two including an autograph !

Dude, I bought a Monster Box today as well and got no hits. I would be happy with a $2 scrub auto.

You know what pissed me off?? The stupid card they put in there to say you're NOT a winner of the National Treasures box! That faked me out.

Because unlike last year, this year there is also Red, Blue, Orange, Purple, Light-Blue & Mosaic refractors. If there were none of those and just green, then the prices would be alot higher for the greens.

Thanks everyone for all the comments, I know it could've been alot worse and it usually is. I would just prefer to have $35 than what I got.

so these things have 17 packs plus the rwb pack? at least you get a lot for it. although if 2 other people got this & didnt even get one colored prizm, thats pretty amazing. its a little expensive to not get anything out of. id say if you have the rack packs available in your area your a lot better off just buying 3 of those for $30+ tax.

The $4.99 rack packs are a good deal for repacked stuff. You get a Durant RC (mine was a white border Topps) and are likely to get a jersey card of some sort.

The $11.99 guaranteed auto plus 4 pack boxes have been ok, too. I don't think they would give you a great auto, seeing as they're packing it, but I've gotten a green Prizm Post Season Duncan and other inserts in the packs. Autos have been stuff like an 03-04 UD Darko jersey auto, Topps Chrome Belinelli auto RC, Press Pass Afflalo /100, and a couple other scrub autos.

Because they made much less of them... There is no official print run ever released but I still think there are less than 50 of each in last years green prizm set .

I enjoy those repack boxes. I have bought a few of them. They're only $12 for 10 packs so not too bad. It's fun seeing what type of packs are in there.

I've opened a few monster boxes myself. The best hit I pulled was from the Hoops pack and it was a Dahntay Jones Red Border Auto /50. The Red, White, and Blue cards are different in the fact that the color scheme is different than the past RWB, these are blue white and red. Not much difference and they do not sell well either. I loved the colored mosaics this year, but it was just overkill with all the parallels this year.
