Yeah, even when you don't get any hits, you feel better knowing you didn't spend 85 bucks and get 3 worthless jerseys

I understand what you're saying, but I like Ginter because of the oddities in the insert sets. In 2009 I purchased a case and another 11 loose boxes, so I def know about the boxes with letdown "hits." But that doesn't disappoint me too much considering what the mini cards end up being worth and how collectable they end up being for some collectors. They have always been VERY hit or miss in the way of the "3 Hits Per Hobby Box" though.

I like ginter too but it seems the risk is huge with hobby boxes (not so much for blasters)

All for trade by the way. Mostly looking for Yadier Molina for my girlfriend....might take a look at Pujols cards too.
