    My sweeter pull out of 03 - 04 Topps

    I stopped at a Target on the way home from work to pick up some UD Victory packs when I noticed they also had the box blasters for 03 - 04 Topps. I had previously bought a box blaster for topps which turned out relatively uneventful (got Carmelo and Darko, but no LeBron :( ). I figured I'd give it another shot and bought one with 4 packs of Victory.

    I opened the Victory first and did all right, pulling Darko, Cook, and some other obscure RC. Then I turned to the Topps. I was about 16 packs in out of the 22 and so far hadn't pulled anything special, just a couple Bryant inserts and some decent rookies (still no LeBron :( ). I open up mini-pack #17, flip through the first few cards, when I find myself staring at a Mark of Excellence autograph. I'm in complete shock at this point because Topps autographs are inserted in the retail packs at the rate of one out of every elevendy-billion packs, so even if you pulled, say, a Michael Doleac autograph it's still something special... right? Just agree with me because I pulled a Michael Doleac out of regular Topps last year. Anyway, my eyes focus in on the player. Is it another Michael Doleac? Is it a Marc Jackson? (I also pulled him last year) No, it is none other than Shaq Diesel.

    Unfortunately, one of the borders is slightly flawed, like what you make if you split the card with your fingernail (it's not that big, it's what the flaw looks like). Is it possible to send it back to Topps for a replacement? Either way, it's still an awesome card.

    IggyWH: Thanks for the info. I called them and they have replacements so I'm going to try and send the card back.

    Asujbl: The box was $20 and has 22 packs in it, 6 cards per pack. You get about 5 inserts, 11 rookies, and a decent shot at pulling a Black parallel.
