  1. GREED. This product is for rich people. Today 4/16/22 Blowout cards lists this presale price of $499 hobby and $999 jumbo ($1099 at SteelCity!?!?). 96 cards/156 cards per box respectively. DO THE MATH. 2 autos or 5 autos. $5 to $6 to $7 PER CARD!?!? Come on. Even if there is a Wander auto in EVERY box its still not worth it. This product has been full of NO NAME rookie autos for years. Even 6-8 years ago this product was overpriced at $100ish a box.
    WISE UP TO THIS FOLKS. People have to realize at some point there is straight greed here. Sorry to vent but this is getting out of hand. I just want the cards to collect a set. I could care less about the 19 different color versions. Give me a base set of regular cards and that’s all I need.
    Boycott this product. This has to stop.

  2. straight up greedy dealers and flippers. these cost $200 from topps and these greedy distributors get together and decide $800 per box! wtf is this nonsense 30% markup is one thing but 10000% markup just makes these dealers look ridiculous they can keep these cases and hopefully get stuck with them! boycott these flippers and scamming distributors! panini been scamming now topps is on board f this hobby
