Quick question...on hobby boxes do you get regular base cards as well? I bought a hobby box and every pack I opened had either silver, bronze, or gold ones and no regular base cards. Is this the norm with hobby boxes? I've opened 1 blaster and those packs had regular base...so didn't know if that was the difference between blaster vs. hobby.

That's crazy!
How many of each type were in each pack?

I bought some blasters where the bronzes were replaced by golds so ended up with 10 golds per blasters.

no, most hobby boxes have base cards as well...so your hobby box had like 8 cards per pack and all 8 cards were parallels...thats crazy cool

don't forget to post about the dud blasters so people don't accuse you of only posting the good ones...

1 hobby box produced these: (must have been a hot box...does anyone know if hot boxes exist with Topps Olympic Boxes?)

Again got no regular base cards...all cards were either bronze, silver, or gold parallels or inserts with the normal 3 hits (2 mem & 1 auto)

138 silver
24 bronze
8 gold
6 OLY
3 OH (XI, XX, XXII)
1 SOV-2
1 OC-2

If you got 138 silvers that might be one of the best single box breaks I have seen. You should have a silver set which I don't have after over 10 hobby boxes.

I didn't know if that was the norm with hobby boxes (vs blaster). Pretty freaking cool if I got a hot box and I didn't even know it!

Well sorted everything out...only 1 missing card for the complete silver set, #52. Anyone have it or know who it is?

okay found who it was via ebay...can't believe the silver set (complete) is only bringing $20. Seems kind of low for a parallel set.

The cheaper autos are creeping up in price. Top tier autos are trending down slightly or holding steady.

Question: what are you folks doing with your Paralympics cards? I assumed that those games were running simultaneously to the Olympics, but I found out that they don't start until August 29th.

Harsh reality is that virtually noone watches the Paralympics nor is there very much TV coverage. I'm selling at same time as the Olympics

How is everyone shipping sets?
Any kind go box will be much more costly than thick evenlope. Just team bags in bubble mailer?

He didn't sell it (I wouldn't either) and re-listed the Phelps at a higher BIN/BO!

I think so...seems to be the cheapest way to ship...

Team bags sandwiched between 2 pieces of cardboard in a bubble mailer
