Up until today my luck with the Target packs had been decent. Nothing too stellar, but not too much of the crap autos. Today I walked into the store to pick up some snacky foods and I saw they had four Target packs. Naturally I bought all of them and hit the motherlode. Here's the results:

Victory Packs:

Yao Ming Monster Jams ($6)
Michael Jordan Highlight Reels Gold Parallel 17/100 ($80)

Autograph Packs:

Ervin Johnson 99 - 00 Skybox Autographic ($6)
Glen Rice 98 -99 Skybox Autographics ($20)
Ray Allen 96 - 97 Skybox Emerald Autographs ($80)
Joe Dumars 1994 Skybox USA Autographs ($125)

Not bad for $20.

No, my previous best card was a Mutombo auto from 91-92 Fleer and then I got several autos ranging between $10 and $30, plus the obscure Ron Mercer one. BTW, congrats on the Shaq.

TheBurn - they are in every target if they haven't been "raided" yet--what I mean by this is that so many people online know of the quality of these that they have been selling out rapidly.

Good luck though--best pull I've had is mutombo auto 1991-92 that everyone seems to be getting.

By the way, I was at a Target in College Station, TX this weekend, and it looked like they hadn't sold any of them yet. I completely struck out on mine though.

I got Antonio McDyess, TWO Danny Ferry autos (THE SAME DAMN CARD), Anthony Johnson, and Keith van Horn. Maybe not a complete strike out, but pretty darn close!

Joe Dumars 1994 Skybox USA Autographs ($125)

This books for $125.00? If you can get 1/4 of that, sell it and run.

I probably should just sell them, but sadly enough the Dumars and the Allen are some of the best autos I have, so if anything I'd rather trade for them for some other autos. Does anybody have a Beckett Basketball Plus that has the odds for pulling an auto from the 1994 Skybox USA set? They must be pretty hard to come by because even the Majerle books $100.

I got a 1997 Juwan Howard Skybox Autographics. I bought the pack for 4.99 at Target. It didnt come with a Victory pack, but it did come with 4-screw screw down case.

I put the card on Ebay and its at $5 right now.

Gio,

Theres a description of what a Target pack is on this thread. Rippaflow also posted a couple pictures of what the pack looks like.

thanks I went in there last night and didn't know what I was looking for...LOL

after leaving the card shop and buying 2 packs of 2003 sp signature packs for almost $100 and getting 6 cards and only a ken dorsey auto...the rookies I have never heard of and the other auto is some loser that I have never heard of either.

not cool. Thats why i try not to spend too much on single packs (i.e. ultimate collection). What was the name of the other loser you got?

I stopped at another Target on the way home from work today. There was 12 of the Target packs so, you know, I bought them all. How could I not? Anyway, I didn't get anything too stellar, but I made some decent pulls. Here's the breakdown:

99 - 00 Skybox Autos

The infamous Sam Mitchell
Felipe Lopez
Ervin Johnson
Travis Best
P.J. Brown
Glenn Robinson

98 - 99 Skybox Autos

Rik Smits

97 - 98 Skybox Autos

Allan Houston

96 - 97 Skybox Autos

2x Joe Smith
Another Ray Allen Emerald Auto

92 - 93 Fleer

Darryl Dawkins Slam Dunk Auto

Like I said nothing too stellar outside of the Ray Allen, but I did get a good amount of autos of good players and not too much of Mr. Mitchell's kind. Just thought I'd share.
