So, 8 packs, 56 cards. I pulled about a dozen or so shiny cards. I guess that's good. And one per pack thick gold bordered beauties. Problem is, hardly any names I recognize or that seem to be viable prospects and the ones I do know are not close to being stars. There was one lone exception and fortunately it saved the blaster from being a total bust. As a Cubs fan I was happy to see the Cubs' biggest star, Anthony Rizzo. Yeah, it's a Padres card but it doesn't scream San Diego. And it's a refractor, so bonus.
I'm not a speculator, don't really have the interest or budget to be one. This product is lost on me. I appreciate the gift and I'm pretty sure my father-in-law bought it at a discount but I'd never buy it for myself.
