As a long time fan of the Topps Turkey Red Series of cards, I pre-ordered 2 hobby boxes from one of my favorite eBay sellers at a great price. I was very impatient waiting for this product, but upon opening the first of the two boxes I was more than impressed and happy.
The box topper, was a Dick Perez signed Vlad card numbered 21/25 which made me very happy without having to see any more. Now aside from the fact that I am convinced that I got a "hot" box, it was like the packs never ended. Topps made a great product once again, with 24 packs per box and 8 cards per pack, you just can't go wrong here.
I did happen to win another hobby box on ebay for $66.00 which should be coming next week, and I am hopeful that one of them might contain my Pujols AU. Hopeful, but pessimistic none the less.
Here is the breakdown of the first hobby box:
