So, I decided to pull the trigger on a couple of hobby boxes since they're sold out. I think I did ok. Didn't come close to getting my money out of it, but they are a fun break. None are FT at the moment. Deciding whether I want to build this set.

EDIT: I am looking to trade for the following Minis:
-Verlander (base, gold, relic)
-Stanton (gold, relic)
-Cabrere (gold, relic)


Here's the "hits"

Box 1*

Gold
Kerry Wood
Ian Desmond
Andrew Bailey
Dexter Fowler

PC
Mike Stanton
Miguel Cabrera
Mickey Mantle (Not PC, but thought I'd mention it)

Printing Plate
2011 NL ERA Leaders (Cyan; Kershaw/Halladay/Lee)

**I did not get either a relic or an auto in this box** I do not believe the printing plate counts. Not sure if it's worth messing around with Topps on this. Any thoughts are welcome.

Box 2

Gold
Edwin Jackson
Michael Young
Ben Revere
Miguel Montero
Josh Johnson (1/61)

Platinum:
Fautino De Los Santos

Notable Rookie
Cespedes
Harper

GU:
Kershaw

Printing Plate
Matt Latos (Yellow)

PC:
Mike Stanton
2011 AL ERA Leader (Verlander)
2011 AL Wins Leaders (Verlander)
not too shabby. sucks about the auto's. im not a fan of mini's but i thought about picking up some myself. the auto template looks really nice.

Thanks. What's nice is that the Minis were a relatively short run, so there's decent amount of SNs (especially plates) to be had. Definitely a lot more fun than opening the normal '12 Topps product.
i've noticed that with some box breaks i've watched. it seems plates are about 1:3 boxes.
that is amazing 2 for 2 with plates!

I think the box odds state 1:60, but I got my first plate out of the only mini box and I've seen a lot of others pull them. They all seem to be yellow though :|
