    I bought a few packs of hobby today at my LHS and it seemed to be about average in comparison to your rip. Best card I got was a Joe Mauer…kind of depressing but it is still early…

    Hey Chris – Great post as usual but a quick question for you. Is the Harper RC short print or easy to pull? I was going to buy a few hobby boxes in hopes of a Harper RC, but as you know, sometimes it’s easier, and cheaper, to go after the single card you want on Ebay.

    I love seeing these Rippin’ Retail box breaks. Since they are about all I can afford right now, it gives me a good idea of what I’m getting into. This particular break wasn’t great, but it also wasn’t bad. PLZ keep posting these occassionally!

    I’ve been pulling a decent amount of rookies from retail so far. I’d say it was an average blaster box. I WANT YOUR JOB-lol!!!!! Looks like way too much fun!

    I love Topps Chrome! It is the only product that I look forward to each year and rip ad nauseum. 2000 Topps Chrome was the first complete base set I put together and have subsequently put together every base set since. The thing I like about Topps Chrome is that it provides me with enough fodder in the way of parallels and non-base auto’s to trade or sell to complete my base sets. I get the thrill of ripping and the joy of finishing a set every year!
