Hits are guaranteed in the hobby box, retail are far and few. Walmart has retail.

dont expect anything crazy from the retail box, but at around $20, its a fun break, you can pull alot of nice base/inserts for trade bait.

Hobby boxes of this run $200-$300 for a reason. The retail has almost nothing of value. That is why they have so much in stock and cant get rid of it.

Yeah I opened many of these retail boxes when I got back into the hobby a little while ago. The Red MJ in my bucket is probably the best card you can pull from the retail stuff.

That's very nice of you to note that you're a step ahead thanks to this board, so you'll profit off of your friends naivety...

I have busted many blasters of 08-09 Hot Prospects and have had great hits from them. Kobe Bryant Jersey, Kobe Bryant Jersey #'d 25, Lebron James base #'d 25, Michael Jordan insert #'d 499, Amare Stoudemire Jersey #'d 25, and Allen Iverson Jersey #'d 25.

You have more shot at a Rose, Love, or Westbrook Auto Rookie with the hobby box. With the Retail box, you probably pull a jersey card and a bunch of blue parallels.
