2012 Topps Value Box - Is it a Value??
For The Collector - Value Box???
The Box claims there is a 40% Savings - Is this true.
Lets do the math.
5 x $1.99 for five Topps Pack = $9.95
2 x $4.00* for two Hobby Heritage = $8.00
2 bonus cards = $3.05
Ok I cheated on the Mantle card and the bonus and made up a number. All 3 chrome cards are gong for $3.99 and up on the bay. The GG cards are going for a buck each. $3.05 is a conservative estimate. Has anybody actually sold one of the chrome inserts on ebay??
*also I assumed a cost of $4 on the Heritage Hobby. Not sure what single packs are going for this year. I am just going off past experience.
That gives us $21.00. The Box lists for $14.99. There is a savings of $6.01.
This comes down to where you call the savings number at - if it is off of $21 your savings is only 28%, however if you specify $14.99 as the base then the savings is.....40%
oh yeah there are cards in the box - here is the chrome insert
