Absolute garbage. I am guessing that this is about as awful as it gets.
I have to admit I like the set but the offerings are pathetically slim and you can get stuck with some real crap like a surfer or a snowboarder.
Jim Fitzsimmons SP
Rube Foster SP
Amy Rodriguez SP (Who?)
Harry Truman SP
Jules Verne SP
If these are so SP why are they not serially numbered and why did I get five of them?
Black mini John Lamb (pitching prospect)
Black mini Matt Lipka (weak baseball prospect)
Black mini john mallinger (a golfer I never heard of)
The box hit apparently is a Figures of Sport Paul Rabil Lacrosse card. That's right - lacrosse.

This product is simply a lot more non-baseball oriented than even A&G is, but there is still some decent stuff in it.
The SP base cards are not supposed to be super short printed, just a little more difficult to get. You'll get either a base SP or a mini in every pack.

No matter what box it is.
And because you didn't pull $100 or $200 out of a $20 box it makes it crap right ?

This really was a junk box.
