2013 USA Champions - 2 Box break + Fathers Day Packs - Lot s of Pics
After going to 3 different cards last weekend trying to find Father's Day packs I finally caved and bought 2 boxes of 2013 USA Champions from Panini's website and got 4 Fathers Day packs with the order. Here is what I got.
The USA boxes are a lot of fun to break and both had more hits than advertised. Here is a run down of both boxes:

2 base sets (1-125) with only 1 missing card (well more like damaged card, as I got 2 of the card but 1 was damaged, so I am not quite complete for the sets).
12 of the Certified base cards
4 Highlights, unfortunately each box had 2 of the same card (Mike Neill and Nomar Garciaparra).
6 Pride: Isaac Gutierrez, Robin Ventura, Matt Purke, Carlos Rodon, Jason Varitek, Tino Martinez

2 Mirror Reds (#'d/499): David Berg, Bryson Brigman
2 Mirror Blues (#'d/299): Trevor Williams, Keegan Thompson

2 Legends Die-Cuts (#'d/699): Will Clark, Carlos Rodon
1 Legends Die-Cut Mirror Red (#'d/299): Addison Russell
1 Legends Die-Cut Mirror Gold (#'d/25): Gerrit Cole

Well I had a lot of fun with these 2 boxes, so I ordered 3 more (though not from Panini, as I was able to get them for much less elsewhere). I'm going to try and put together the set of certified cards and I may go after a few of the insert sets if I get enough of any of them in the next 3 boxes.

The boxes state 2 autos and 3 relics per box, but I got 4 relics and 2 autos in 1 box and 4 relics and 3 autos in the other. They are available at BlowoutCards for under $60. I paid $72 per box for the ones direct from Panini, but they came with the Father's Day packs.

I opened a bout a half box a couple of weeks ago. I got 1 JSY. But the LCS I used to go to (about 30 minutes away) charges $5 per pack for them. They're the same LCS that charges $120 for a regular box of Topps Series 1 and $150 for a Gypsy Queen box. So, you can probably get them for about $60-$70 at most places.

I didn't see anything in your ORG that I needed. Plus I am definitely going to wait on pricing before trading away any of these. Depending on what I hit in the next 3 boxes, I may put some of the hits up for sale to help off-set the cost of the boxes. I am definitely keeping the Varitek though, as I have been wanting an auto of his.

RE: 2013 USA Champions - 2 Box break + Fathers Day Packs - Lot s of Pics
I got 3 more boxes in today and each box had at least 1 extra hit in it. I don't have time to make a full list of these boxes but my best hit was a Mike Mussina Stars and Stripes Signature; just sad that it's a redemption. Each box yields a complete set, and I have a ton of extras. It looks like pricing is up now, and I am a bit disappointed and surprised by some of the pricing. Not sure if I will buy any more right now, as at the current pricing I should be able to pick up all the inserts I need for a Master set for less than the price of another box.
