Overall Review: I was not overly thrilled with this product I did get a really good deal at $105 but the cards just didn’t do anything for me. The base cards have way to much wasted black space on them. There was no need for Topps to make the red parallel cards so thick as few a them are dented because they are thicker. It just doesn’t make sense because the bronze is not a thick card do all or do nothing. The best cards out of both boxes were in box 2 the Ortiz Patch was really nice & the dual Red Sox card. The solo shot autos are strange that they aren’t numbered but the Jerseys are. Also strange that Scherzer & granderson were part of a 3 way trade today. The only good thing is you can complete a set very easily in 2 boxes which is nice. If this product dropped to $60 I’d consider buying it and take a chance with pulling some of the case hits but at $105 I wouldn’t buy another box and this was a product I was looking forward to for months,
