Well if there will ever be a Non-Sport box we open this would be it. The story about how we came to bust this one open is simple, 1 Sketch card 1/1 per box. Excuse me? Yes you heard us right, and that was all what we needed to hear to pick up this box.
So the premise of this product is pretty straight forward with 24 packs per box with 5 cards per pack. A base set consists of only 62 cards so doing the math you will have a complete set in 1 box. Inserts are in this product with Foil Parallel Base cards, Alternate Reality Foil, Secret Origins, Women of Superman and X-Ray Vision cards. These range from 1:12 to 1:24 packs.
As we said above this Cryptozoic product has 1 Sketch card per box, but you can also find Printing Plates and Redemption's for a 4x6 Sketch card. Sketch cards are always hot in the secondary market, and with a product based on a comic of a well-known superhero this is a pretty good buy.
So with this all in mind and not being all in the know of Non-Sports cards we thought it would be kinda cool to step outside of the circle on this one. Here is how we did:
Base Cards: 104 (1 complete set with 41 doubles)
Foil Base Cards: 6
Secret Origins: 2
Alternate Worlds: 2
Women of Superman: 2
X-Ray Heat: 2
Sketch Cards: 2 - David Rabbitte, Unknown Artist
So overall this is a pretty good box to purchase. Base cards are nice and span across Superboy to Superman in different years of the comics life. The art on each card is pretty cool as well. You make a complete set plus only 22 from making 2 sets. Find this a little funny as to why the 24 packs then, you could shorten it up to 18 packs with 5 cards per pack and with the same odds. With 18 packs you would be looking at 10-12 doubles instead of the 41 you have with 24 packs.
Most cards we pull in our breaks end up in our COMC account (ThePackGambler), eBay account (thepackgambler) or within our sites storefront (www.packgambler.com). If you are interested in any of the cards we have mentioned please send us an e-mail at email@example.com
