I was perusing the wares and drop boards and noticed he had a bunch of boxes for super cheap. There was a lot of hockey, but also a couple boxes of Topps Olympic cards from last year. I had resisted buying any because to be honest hobby boxes were really expensive. Talking to Don he said he wasn't going to get any of it, but had a few people interested in it so he bought a couple of boxes, the ones now marked down to a reasonable price. So I snagged one of the boxes and when I go back if the other one is still there and cheaper I might snag that one too.
In my honest opinion this was one of Topps best releases last year.
You've all seen the cards I'm sure. They make for great TTM fodder, plus you get 3 hits per box, at least!!
Let's go through the motions of it though.
There are also three tiers of parallels, bronze, silver and gold.
There is also the Games of the XXX Olympiad insert.
The other base insert is the Heritage of the Games.
You get one commemorative (ie Manupatch) card per box.
But wait what's this I beat the odds!! Yeah the packaging says you get at least 1 relic, 1 auto and one commemorative card. But ain't it sweet when you get more than that?!!
Over all not a bad box for under 40 bucks. I haven't collated the set yet, but from just leafing through the stack I know that I should have most of a set and quite a few doubles.
