Default BCCG Graded Box at Target $20

Until today, I did not realize there were football hobby packs available at Target. I've seen the BCCG graded boxes in the past, but due to the poor design and emphasis on BCCG graded card inside (not much to get excited about there) I never paid any attention and assumed it might have a few extra retail packs if anything.

Turns out, in addition to the graded card there are 3 football hobby packs + 1 "additional football pack" (retail).

So for $20 I figured why not? Not sure what the packs were going to be, but I figured nowadays 3 hobby packs normally add up to around $20+ anyway.

Turns out the packs were 2x 2015 Topps Fire, 1x 2015 Topps Chrome & then a 2017 Leaf draft (for the record I've also watched a few YouTube videos after my break and found out that the current series of BCCG Graded from Fairfield Company always has these same 4 packs inside).

The BCCG 10 graded card in my box was a 2011 Topps Cam Newton RC.

I was obviously more hopeful for a hit in Topps Fire vs. Topps Chrome, so when I felt one of the packs clearly had a thick card, I left it for the end of my break, checked the 2015 Topps Fire checklist to see what the possibilities could be and unless I was insanely lucky with a 1/1 swoosh/shield or a /10 dual relic+auto, it was going to be an RPA and there were 37 possibilities for that RPA.

So I open the pack and immediately notice the card is in the very front upside down with 1 other base card behind it. I saw dark red on the back so I'm immediately thinking it's either Jameis Winston or freakin' Mike Davis. Yeah, night and day right there...

But it looks like I was forgetting at least one other rookie that could have a dark red color associated with him:



Of the 37 possible players, I'll take DJ and for a card #d /400, I'll take that patch too

Great hit, particularly for $20.

I see yours was the “gems of the game” box which is actually different from the Fairfield company box I grabbed that would have looked like this



The contend are ALWAYS the same too-

1x bccg graded card
1x 17 leaf draft retail pack
1x 15 Topps Chrome Hobby pack
2x 15 Topps fire Hobby pack

Not too bad value for 19.99 imo
