Mega Box?

Have you seen and/or picked up one of these yet?  I was at Target earlier today and spied this on the shelf.  Having heard about these through the hobby grapevine previously, I was curious to pick one up and see what sort of luck I'd have with the two "exclusive" Topps Chrome Traded packs.

Pack 1

A pretty decent haul from the first pack.  Three All-Stars, highlighted by Bryce Harper, and a black refractor numbered 42/99.

Pack 2

The second go-round wasn't as exciting as the first crack, but the Rendon rookie is a nice get.  I also found it interesting that the insert cards were still in the mix.  I wasn't expecting that.

Nothing sexy to speak of in any of the five regular Update packs, in case you were wondering.

Should we really consider these "mega boxes?"  They carry a $14.99 price tag, which might be the "mega" part, I suppose.  And the regular packs aren't even of the 12-card variety; instead just eight cards per pack.  Still, it was fun ripping into the Chrome packs, and that is the true allure of these boxes anyhow.

  1. One of my packs was the same as your first one except I didn't get the black parallel.
