Another Question - Strata Hobby vs Retail - sshissler - 01-07-2013 08:54 AM

Sooooo, what's the difference between Strata Hobby and Retail... the thickness of the cards! Wow.

All of the cards from the Hobby Box I recently broke were much thicker cardboard stock and the retail boxes are a much thinner, flimsy card.

Didn't realize until after busting the retail boxes that they cards are actually different and specified as such in the Beckett as 2012 Topps Strata Retail #1 Robert Griffin III RC for example.

I'm sure the retail are going to book for much lower when the values come out, agreed?

For the most part yes, Luck & Griffin might still be close to hobby price but those are only 2 I see being close. Also the retail has different photos than hobby.
