Default 2012/13 Contenders Hobby box x2 (from Target)

Was at Target over the weekend, and they had four hobby boxes of 12/13 Contenders. An OK price on them - $69.99 - I know I can get them cheaper online, but I'm a glutton for instant satisfaction.

My wife has had a lot of luck picking boxes out, so I had her make the call. The one she picked up had some of the cellophane coming apart, so she asked if she should pick up a different one. Leery of pack searchers, I said yes - while I'm not sure they could do anything about the red security tape in the cellophane, who knows?

Wrong call I made there. I ended up going back and buying the second box later.

First pic is the first box hits; second pic is the second box hits.

Yes - I went back for the first one. Too bad I didn't buy it in the first place.

I haven't found any similar sales on the Hill - there's one up on the bay for I think $169 OBO. I'm planning on holding on to it, anyway (I think).

i didnt see any of that exact card, there were some other comparable 12-13 autos of him though, itd probably be 40-50 or slightly higher since its the first one and 25 is more limited than others thatve ended lately.

Here's the one of the same card. Dude's priced way too high IMO - I'm sure he looked at the $200 BV and figured it was a reasonable price.

Grant Hill 2012 13 Panini Contenders Contemporary Contenders Autograph SP 11 25 | eBay

At any rate, I like Hill so I plan on keeping it, at least unless I get one of his autos in a Detroit uni. I have one of him in a Duke uni I was keeping in my PC...guess that's expendable now

Nice Grant Hill, but I'm definitely staying away from these now.
