Join Beckett Sports Card Monthly‘s Chris Olds as he rips into a blaster box of 2014 Topps U.S. Olympic Team cards in this latest episode of Ripping Retail.
What will he find inside the very first pack? Watch and find out …
As someone who only buys retail when I do buy I love the ripping retail box breaks. The more the better.
After looking at prices of hobby boxes when they came out (selling for about $85 each at the time) I went instead to Wal-Mart and picked up three of these retail boxes for $20 each. So for about $20 less than a hobby box (including taxes), I got the same number of packs as a hobby box with the same number of inserts in them, including two memorabilia cards and one autograph card – plus I got a complete base set, which is what I was most interested in. Among my “hits” was both a memorabilia and autograph card for gold medalist Meryl Davis.
I rarely open packs, usually just buying what I want on the secondary market, but I thought it would be fun to get a few random mem and/or auto cards and then just watch the Olympics to see how the people I pulled would do. So that obviously paid off with Davis & I had a lot more fun watching her event (ice dancing) than I might have ordinarily had.
So needless to say, I was very pleased with these particular retail packs.
They are beautiful cards, but I just cant see myself getting Olympics cards.
does the set include any of the hockey team? it was announced so late I wouldn’t think they would have been able to include them.
No men’s hockey cards. Just women and sled hockey(paralympics).
