Retail broke.

After his surgery I wanted to comfort JunkWaxTwins so we grabbed a few retail products and broke them. We tried one 10$ box of 2016 Topps Heritage, a blaster box of 2012 Goodwin Champions, and four hang down packs of 2016 Donruss. We’ll start this review with Donruss.

There’s only so much that can be said with Panini and their lack of an MLB license. For the price, I don’t see why you would buy a blaster box when you get nearly the same amount of cards breaking a hang-down pack. Odds be damned. Here’s what we pulled:

79 base cards
11 retired stars

1 Masters of the game

1 Team USA Collegiate

4 Rated Rookies

1 Checklist and 1 blank white spacer. ;).

2012 Goodwin Champions was a very discounted blaster box that we figured “Eh, why not?” We received a wide range of stars from sports outside of the big four(MLB/NHL/NFL/NBA) and even some from them. We also pulled an insert – Military Machines, and our five guaranteed minis. The product feels like an attempt at Allen & Ginter, but it doesn’t live up to it’s predecessor.

This box says to look for Real One Autos or Relic cards! We got neither, but here’s what we did pull was 32 Base cards including 3 team cards(Angels, Giants, and Brewers), and two AL/NL Rookie Stars(Severino/Sano!, Conforto/Nola). For inserts, we pulled a World Series highlight(Game #5), and a New Age Performers(Sonny Gray). Rounding out our retail break, we also found a Billy BUrns #/999. Pretty meh box, but I do love picking up Miguel Sano cards.
