2011 ITG ... there are not the hits I was looking for
Well, after spacing on Blowout's Black Friday special and searching for the right price, I finally landed a box of 2011 ITG Heroes And Prospects at a killer deal on it ($32).

Unfortunately, like I expected, I didn't land a Trout or a Harvey and I didn't even hit a Max Kepler like I'd hoped I would. But, at least there's a couple of names I know and the Delgado, based on the BV of the less-scarce red version isn't a bad hit. All of these will eventually be FT.

Thanks for lookin.

For $32 I think you did great. I love that Delgado card, but I used to really like those sweet spot autos, these look better produced. The Melky Mesa is cool! Was that the whole contents of the box, or just the hits? Were there base cards?

The whole box is 5 cards - all guaranteed hits. Most of them are prospect autos, but there are a handful of "heroes" - mainly mem cards with maybe a few autos.

Yeah, the price was definitely right. The guy I got it off of (via Ebay) lives about 15 miles from me. He's got a buddy that owns a shop in Canada and he can't move these very well up there. He told me he'd hit me up when he gets his hands on some more.

I have found that if you a product without hoping for anything good then you usually pull something decent, but everytime I bust boxes hoping to get a certain player it never happens!!! Nice stuff for a $32 box.

That explains a lot.
I guess I better quit collecting now ... I'm always hoping for something good!
If it's hopeless, then I'm out Smile

We have picked up these boxes anytime we see them at walmart, though its 60 bucks there.
Sometimes theres cool hits, Like I got a will meyer in the very first box we got. Another box was a lou brock auto/patch card. Other times its a bunch of guys you never heard of, but the woman loves these because its ALL "hits"

Agree. Love the design on the Delgado.

Currently collecting A-Rod, Jeter, Cano, Mauer and Trout. I tend to be a fast shipper, work across the street from our post office.
