Default 2012-13 Panini Contenders 3 Box Rip

Did 3 boxes yesterday as part of my last breaks of 2012. Here's the damage:

Box 1 -
Parallel (of 25): Tyrus Thomas
RC Auto: Charles Jenkins Redemption, Darius Morris, Chris Singleton, Greg Stiemsma
Contenders Materials (of 49): Wesley Matthews

Box 2 -
RC Auto: Kim English, Royce White
RC Auto (of 10): Malcolm Lee
Contenders Materials (of 149): Kevin Martin
Historic Contenders Auto: Kiki Vandewegher Redemption

Box 3 -
RC Auto: Kenneth Faried, Charles Jenkins Redemption, Mike Scott, Julyan Stone

Summary: I was planning to only do one, but the JJ base card did not come until final box. I have to give a strong recommendation to avoid this product. A) It was not fun to open. The cards are dull-looking and all autos are stickers it seems. B) The value is terrible. The rookie auto checklist is super water-downed (and again - all stickers.) You would have to hit a Kyrie or Davis to break even on a box, and the odds are super long. The vast majority of the autos seem to be of the $1-2 on eBay ilk. Just not a good product.
