Default One Solo box of 2012 Topps Olympics Team & Hopefuls

Ran to the local hobby shop after work to grab a box. This set reminds me of American Pie - great looking base set, interesting inserts and a fun variety of "manufactured hits." Happy with what I got, though there were a lot of duplicate base cards, not even counting the foil parallels.

I know a lot of people wouldn't agree, but I think this set would have been better if there were no 'game-used' cards and just stuck to the manufactured hits. I think they are fun. I'd rather get another manufactured medal or embroidered card any day over a mystery swatch of cloth of dubious origin. (Steps off soapbox...)

Here they are...

Hey guys, just an update on the box I opened. I sat down this morning and organized my cards. If there are any set-builders out there - I might be talking to myself - here is a breakdown of what I got from the box in addition to the above hits...

1 complete set of base cards (1-100)
8 gold parallels
12 silver parallels
23 bronze parallels
12 assorted inserts
30 doubles of base cards

None of it is for sale, just wanted to let people know what to possibly expect with a hobby box of this stuff. Hope it helps.
