    What is the difference??

    I'm in the market for some boxes of Heroes and Prospects and I noticed on ebay that you can get hobby or arena boxes of this product.

    The arena price is quite a bit lower, but it doesn't say what the breakdown of odds are inside the box, but still says its 24 packs per box.

    Does "arena" just lessen the odds of getting hits compared to "hobby" ?

    This is the first time I've heard of this term being used.

    Thanks for the help.

    And retail boxes have much lower chance of pulling hits in most cases. Hence the lower price per box.

    As the member above said it definitely lower. I am sure you can find the odds on someone listing the boxes on the Bay. It should be like a auto 1 in 48 or game used 1 in 72 with a insert 1:12. Something along those lines. As if you buy a box your not guaranteed a auto or game used if you go by the stated odds. Hope, that helps.
