Default Olympic Blasters?

Don't know much about these, just bought a couple blaster boxes hoping to hit cards of different style fighters (Boxing, taekwondo, judo, wrestling, etc..) But I'll keep anything I find, this looks like a cool set

Have you guys been pulling decent stuff from these blasters? I bought one at target just to test it out, had two cool hits (a stamp and bronze relic #/75.. don't know anything about the value on these yet, but I'm keeping them anyway ).. and then went to a kmart, bought a second that contained no hits. (I do like the medal parallels though) I guess I wanna know if it would be worth trying my luck again, or should I just go pick up a hobby box?

Anyway just wanted to share.. Leaning toward breaking a little of this since there's not much MMA stuff to go after right now anyway.. lol

Blasters are DEFINITELY worth buying! I've pulled a Shawn Johnson auto and a Hope Solo auto out of blasters so far this year. Not to mention, a number of serialed relics...most notable Nastia Liukin!! KEEP BUYING!!

If I bought FOUR hobby boxes, I'd be thrilled to end up with those three hits. Congrats!

They are very hit or miss but have great value when you get the hits. I have bought 4 of them so far. 1 box had 2 hits, three boxes had 0 hits. Can't remember the swimmer auto I pulled but it was selling around $20 and I hit a Hope Solo pin which was selling around $40 so couldn't complain.

I've opened about 6 of these so far and I've hit a couple of the Pin cards, a relic card, and a Ryan Lochte Auto which I sold for $100. I love this stuff!

I have opened a number of blasters and hit a Lochte Bronze auto as well as a Phelps Gold auto...have also got skunked on a number of them, but that is just to be expected.

The blasters have been very good to me as well.

I'm averaging about 3 hits in every 4 blasters, but that takes into account a few boxes that have had two hits.
