1 box and 4 pack searched anthology packs
Just to clarify, I DID NOT search any packs, but I purchased 4 packs from what I thought was a new box, only to discover that the "new box" had 12 packs instead of 10 (translation: someone pack searched 2 boxes and took 4 packs from each then combined what was left).
here are the hits:
Didn't do horribly all things considered, but after I purchased the 4 packs I examined the rest and realized that any and all "fat" packs were gone.
So I gave the shop owner and earfull and drove 30 minutes to the only other LCS available to buy a fresh box.
Here are the hits from the full box, the Bobby Ryan Prism is /25:
the print is small, but the silhouette is Sam Gagner

Nice pull bud. I love the look of those Intensity cards, nice redemption too. Can't wait to get my box today.

This stuff honestly went from being the biggest bomb of 2011-12 to probably the best value this year.
$100 for 11 hits, all of the inserts numbered. Really nice designs too.
Can't argue with those numbers.

Seriously, say hello to EXACTLY what it wrong with the entire mentality of the hobby.
I would rather get my money's worth out of every box with a consistently good mix of cards and great looking designs, then to strike out 9 times out of 10 and hit a grandslam on the 10th.

I never said it was outstanding, but from what I have seen, this years anthology is providing some fun breaks (good variety of nice looking cards). That is all I look for in a break. I may not have the chance at a $1000 card, but I'm also not losing my shirt for the chance. This product is in the same price range per box as Series 1 and Black Diamond, and you don't see many $100+ sale value cards come out of those either, but no one complains.
Maybe the problem is that certain "collectors" have redefined "hit" so that inserts and rookies don't count anymore. I guess it isn't a hit unless you can flip it for pretty good money instantly.
Yep, the hobby is definitely progressing down the right path.
