Default 1 Topps Value Box from Wal-Mart. POST YOUR RESULTS!!!

Nothing good to report on this one =(

I did get some rookies, though I feel my best was also part of my PC. A Nick Perry RC. The other packers I got was a Ryan Grant tall boy and a Jordy Nelson base.

The 1 hobby pack of Platinum was disappointing. My rookie was Ryan Lindley, and I did get a Matt Flynn Ruby Red parallel. The Flynn card was strange, as it looked about 2 - 2.5x as thick as a regular card. I thought it was going to be a jersey card!

Also, the box stated that inside would be either an exclusive Andrew Luck or an RGIII Chrome Rookie Refeactor Card. Well...I am not sure what it is, but it is NOT Chrome. It looks a lot like Finest if anything, but again, it is not Finest. All it says is Topps. Strange. Keeping it regardless.

I have gotten at least 3 or 4 of these and not much of anything to call good hits. Still fun for the break.

Just broke one. Same deal. Pack of Platinum had a thick ruby B. Lloyd, and the Topps had nothing to speak of besides a T Rich RC. As far as the Luck/RG3 "Chrome" refractors, they are only available in these boxes, and while they are not "Topps Chrome" brand, they are a chrome finish. These boxes are worth a shot, because after the Luck/RG3 refractor and the code card, that is about half of your money back right off the bat.

Hey Sauce, quick question for you:

If one wanted to sell the Luck/RG3 RC that comes in these boxes, how would one market it? I mean, you can't call it Chrome but it IS a Refractor. Would you just label as "2012 Topps Andrew Luck RC Refractor"?

Also, what does everyone think of these "Hobby" pack being stuck in these boxes? Are they...how do I say this..."searched hobby packs" that Topps knows doesn't contain any major hits or do you have a legit shot at an RG3 auto, or an Aaron Rodgers patch etc etc?

Try the 9.99 hanger packs instead as I found many camo and pink parallels /399, 2 jerseys and an autograph. Many packs I opened have 4 code cards instead of 1. The last day to enter the codes is January 31. Only 15 players in the retail 1957 Topps insert set and one per hanger pack.

My fear with the hanger packs are the packe searchers out there. Though I am not in a large city, I am in a decent sized town.

So...what does one do with the code cards? I thought you were supposed to guess how many points were going to be scored per team you get, right?

You had to guess which 5 teams would have the highest point totals and if there was a tie you had to guess how many points were scored by all teams that week.

I also live in a decent sized town, guess not many pack searchers around in the area or they go for the higher end retail products. (Topps Chrome, etc.)

I would list them as "Topps Refractor", the use of "Chrome" is not out of the question though, as they are labeled as chrome and do have a chrome finish. As long as you have a scan of the card, the use of chrome is fine. As far as the hobby packs, I feel they are just that, hobby packs. I do not believe they are searched, as I have seen some nice hits pulled. Obviously, with only 1 pack from a hobby box, the odds are not in your favor for a big hit. All in all, this is a great VALUE product from Topps. Hope that helps.

I just picked one up the other day and it was good. I got 7 inserts out of the topps packs and a michael egnew on card auto from platinum but I think every hobby platinum pack has a think ruby card as a decoy but I could be wrong

Tried out another box this morning and pulled a Turbin Finest Auto 3 color patch #/10000000. Not too bad at all!

I didn't know that the Platinum pack was a hobby pack. I may need to try one of these.

I usually just get the walmart re-packs. I usually do well on those

I've pulled some awesome patch autos from this. I have bought a ton of these since I don't have a hobby shop anywhere near me and I love platinum. Here are my pulls through the process
Redemption for this:

(Obviously minus the elite)

I tried one of these and didn't get anything. I do think that having the thick ruby parrallel as a decoy is genius. It's not exactly wasting cardboard by putting just a plain decoy in the packs.

So, I decided I would buy a few of these after you guys brought to my attention that the Platinum were Hobby Packs. (I don't read too well )
These are the hits from 3 of the value boxes

Anyway, I think I did extremely well even though the autos are of the wrong rookies. Bryant /399
Rainey /99 (if you can even call that an autograph)
Graham /1058

Too bad Rainey had to be cut. That'd be good if he could keep clean.
