Summary

Did you arrive here looking to read sports card reviews and shop for some new cards? If so, buy sports card boxes using our free sports card review and price comparison database.

Sports card retail boxes are primarily sold through large retail chains like Target and Wal-Mart. Retail boxes can also be purchased online from smaller retail stores and through eBay. The biggest benefit of buying retail boxes and packs is that they are significantly cheaper than their hobby box counterparts.

IRetail Boxes 1n brick-and-mortar retail environments, retail boxes are broken up and sold by the pack. They are also available through manufacturer sealed "blaster boxes." Blasters contain a set number of packs at a price below what it would cost to buy each pack individually. Blaster boxes are normally sold at three different price points ($9.99, $19.99, and $29.99) depending on the quality and quantity of the cards they contain. In addition to sporting a lower per pack rate, blaster retail typically include some sort of added bonus like a free pack or a special insert card.

Although they are the cheapest means of buying new sports card products, buying individual packs of cards from unsealed retail boxes can be a risky proposition. This is because a handful of less ethical collectors routinely go to Wal-Mart and Target to cherry-pick the packs containing the special hits. The individuals, known as pack searchers, can identify game-used memorabilia and autograph cards without even opening (or paying for) the packs. They determine which packs contain the hits by weighing each of them with a portable digital scale, and/or carefully pressing packs on both sides until they feel a sticker, which is indicative of an autographed card. Once they identify the packs that contain hits, they pay for them and go on their way, leaving behind all the hitless packs. Unfortunately, these actions usually go unnoticed by store employees, although a growing number of stores have become aware of this problem and are prepared to take corrective action. One of the safest ways to buy retail sports cards is direct from the retailer online. You can also buy blasters or any other retail box where the packs come within a larger sealed box.

Sports card companies have increasingly been making more of an effort to include retail-exclusive inserts and parallels in their retail products. Most of the retail-exclusive cards come in the form of parallel base cards or standard inserts and rookie card sets.

Retail boxes are a great choice for young collectors, hobby newcomers, and budget-minded collectors alike. They have much lower price tags than their hobby box brethren, yet are still a fun and exciting way to enjoy collecting sports cards. Player collectors enjoy the inexpensive selection of base cards found in retail boxes. Likewise, set collectors are drawn to retail boxes as they allow them to add to their latest set building projects without paying the extra charge inherent in buying hobby boxes. Plus, retail boxes are easier to find in a collecting world with far fewer hobby shops around.
