finally finished a 2013 topps heritage set
it could very well have been that i was busting out of different cases at my lcs, but it took me 16 boxes to finally complete my set of 2013 topps heritage cards #1-500. the stupid thing is, i can't even finish all of the insert sets...missing a two or three cards from a few of those. and out of those 16 boxes, i got just two mini cards (#ed to 100), all of 3 autographs, and no other inserts such as coins or stamps...just a whole lot of crappy relic cards. of course, i had two very good gold chrome parallels, so i had some salvage there, but the rest of the case? horrible.

but in the end, i found it a challenge...if only it were a little cheaper.

I've only opened 5 boxes and I am only a handful of cards away from finishing the set. I'm doing all of the action variations too. Trading helps!

Just one black chrome -- ian kinsler.

The two gold I ended up with were a Trevor/Rosenthall Rookie (got $100 for it), and a Pujols (got $500 for that one)...

Wow, that's a lot of ripping to get a whole set. I have a base set finished with about 30-40% to go on the SP cards. I bought 3 boxes, got 1 auto, got 2 relics. Bought about 12 blasters for 1 auto, about 3 relics, 2 minis and 1 bazooka. I also got 1 blaster that was a hot box, so I got about 7-8 purple chromes from there.
From one or the other source, I got a black chrome of Prince Fielder ... can't remember where.
Now I'm buying the blister packs for the black non-chrome inserts and trying to get my SP's. Not sure what the best strategy is, but you'd think a case would yield some mega hits. Sorry you didn't do as good as you should have. Seems really wrong with THAT many boxes.
All in all, I probably should have bought a full case for all the money I spent on boxes, blasters and blister cards.

Topps should send me Flowers and Candy this Valentine's Day, because they've been screwing me pretty regularly throughout the year. Smile

it took you 16 whatwhatwhat's? Thats insane!! haha oh man. But you got the set so congrats. Damn thing took me a full year to do last years heritage but i only got 2 boxes.

Looking to complete the 2013 Archives Mets fan favorite Au's as I only need Ron Darling! Also new project for 2014: Topps Gypsy Queen set base (including minis). Please note that if you have less than 15 trades, I ask that you send first.

I opened up one box and pulled a Posey Gold. They price you got for the Pujols makes me wonder if I sold too low. I got $250 but either way it was a win.
