Another post in our new series Hobby Topics. This is not so much a post for us to comment about or give our opinions on, this is your chance to let your voice be heard on a variety of topics in the hobby. We are leaving the floor open to you! So comment away! But please no language and keep your answer clean as we do have a younger following as well.

Today's Topic: The Prices Of Packs and Boxes

Has the price increases on packs and boxes pushed you away from buying them? Do you only buy singles now? What prices do you find reasonable (also think about what the companies must pay to get the players to sign for them and to acquire memorabilia pieces)

Let's hear your thoughts!


  1. I'll bust boxes every now and then, but most of my money is spent on singles. I personally get more bang for my buck purchasing cards I want off of eBay, COMC, and other online stores. I also enjoy finding singles at flea markets and card shows.

    But as a cardboard addict, there are times I need to go out and bust a hobby box or even a blaster from Walmart or Target. Sometimes I'll even buy a vintage box if the price is right.

  2. If you want cards of your favorite players and such, buying singles will get you the best price. But there is nothing like the joy and expectation/hope of opening a box or pack. Unfortunately there is no assurance you will be satisfied and so sometimes it feels like you were robbed. And these prices are certainly scaring away younger baseball fans.
