For 50 cents a pack, not too bad. Decent selection. A couple of good hits for trade bait. The Posey rookie and the Jeter Goodwin Preview made the box, by far.

May got get 2 more today.

RE: 20 Pack Retail Break
Cool - you picked up quite a few decent rookie cards.

I've picked up a few of these over the last few months and have had decent luck with them. Nothing spectacular but ROI if I were to sell / trade is positive. Don't recall picking up anything for my personal collections out of them but was still pleased with the overall contents.

One other thing, you said 20 packs for 19.98 but then you said 50 cents a pack - I'm assuming you meant $1 a pack which is still pretty fair given what packs sell for individually these days.

UM, 20/20 does not equal 0.5.

Don't know what I was thinking of. Maybe too many concussions in my younger days.

Nice hits, I was skeptical about those boxes b/c you can see 5 of the packs but I thought the inner ones may be late 80s or early 90s junk.

Looking for anything of Todd Helton, Josh Donaldson, or Charlie Blackmon I don't have.
