Pack Breaks: $9.99 Value Box from Target

Do you ever get an itch to just open some packs? Doesn't matter what product, as long as there are a bunch of packs to bust open, never knowing what's inside. Well, I got that itch the other day while I was at the local Target. So, as usual, I wandered down the card aisle as we were checking out thinking about grabbing a few of the cheap single packs.

As I was looking over the sports card section of the aisle, which is actually less than half of it considering all the kids gaming cards and what not, I found some of the extreme value repack boxes. They were marked $9.99 for ten packs, plus two bonus packs. That's about $0.83 per pack for the arithmetically challenged. Here's a look at the outside.


Before you used to be able to see inside to at least have a chance at guessing what's in there assuming you know your wrappers. Now it's completely wrapped up other than the two ends. On one end was a pack of 10-11 UD Series 1 and the other a pack of 07-08 MVP. Nothing horrible there so for $9.99 I was in.


I got home with it and ripped it open as soon as possible (after taking a bunch of pics of course) and inside was the following:


Stay tuned to see what was in each of the packs. Some were duds, but some had some cool stuff, that's all I'm going to say for now. By the way, how do you guys feel about these "extreme value" repacks? I love them because for just ten bucks I get a bunch of cards and a good 10 posts out of it. And who doesn't love opening packs?

  1. I have that itch everyday Paul...looks to be a decent purchase. You got a lot of low end stuff but that pack of Hot Prospects looks promising

  2. I like them for the most part. I bought a 3pack for $7, which was supposed to be 40% off but the cashier never took the % off and I didn't notice until on the way home. Can't complain though, I got a Parkhurst rookie of Corey Crawford and a UD Victory rookie of Sidney Crosby.

  3. Every so often I'll pick up something like this. Cheap enough, sometimes you get something interesting, and it makes for good blog fodder. In fact, come to think of it these repack boxes are about the only wax I've purchased in a really long time.

  4. Nice to see it wasn't just the two end packs and all 1990-91 inside. Might have to snag one myself.

    1. Definitely true, there was a great mix even if I did get two packs of ProSet.

  5. I bought one of these from Target about 3 weeks ago, and got the exact same packs! And my Collector's Choice pack had the same sticker on it as well. I can't wait to see what you pull. :)
