~ 11 base prospects per box, 143 per 13 boxes. So if the Harper base is inserted at the same ratio as all the others, and assuming independent events, there's about a 24% chance that 13 boxes will not yield a Harper base. The odds are probably a little lower than that, assuming there is some anti-correlation collating. But not super improbable.

BTW, 234 prospects of any type (Xfractors, green, etc.) in 13 boxes, so only a 10% chance of no Harpers of any type. Bad luck, but not creepy bad. With 100 prospects, it's going to be a tough base set.

None out of 1 box. But Ill tell you what suprised me. All the cards are refractor like. I think Topps hit a homerun with Platinum this year! I didnt know they were like this till today.

I am not a huge fan of this product...I thought the Ginter release was a lot more fun. Having said that, definitely some nice cards to be had!

Why don't you get that you are not welcome, nor wanted here?

Stop being a troll and you will get more respect around here.

It's time to be a big boy.

1 6 box inner yielded a harper base and an Xfractor, the sets are going to take a lot to put together, lucky to get 1 prospect set from a full case, but I'll find out tomorrow when my full 12 box shows up tomorrow.

Topps has been making it hard to put together with all products this year. I didn't get a single master set out of my first case of A&G. And everyone on here was saying "oh yeah, like last year you'll get two per case"

The kids that goto the Targets you search at will never get any hits or big players (Harper) because of you... Happy with that?

Busted a full 12 box case today and got 2 Harper base and 1 Harper auto.

I did come up one Deck McGuire short of a complete set.

I highly doubt the guy that pulled (gary) knows how to search a pack...
known him a long time.. 65 years old and just likes cards does not resell stuff

regardless... 2 harpers came out of 15 packs of retail and 0 came out of 300 hobby packs....

just weird...

As far as the product... unless you pull harper it is kind of garbage...

Just my thoughts on seeing 10-15 boxes opened...
