Uuff I want to open all the ones I have...I opened 10 boxes...no autos (so they are in the others) but I did get Ohtani ROY, Devers Orange #1/25, a lot of good names, and just now Acuna Variation.

Checked about 10 stores in Michigan for the past 3 days, nothing at all, not even in the back or guest services.. looked in receiving and everything. I do know that there's one guy here that goes to these stores starting at 8 am every day picking up funkos and cards. He grabbed all the bowman blasters when they first came out

Something interesting i found out today at one of the Targets, the employee told me that they restocked a single box load this past Wednesday and that it came in one of those Excel boxes like the normal cards do instead of the brown UPS shipment box. Not sure how many were inside. With this said.. i have yet to see an Excel person probably because they come middle of the night but yeah.. lol

Was also told that if it's an item UPSed or Target Trucks to the store it'll usually come in Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights in case people didn't know (atleast in my area)

Which MI stores? Iíve done 7 in the past week at different times of the day. Found two stores that had them. One in the card section, one in the toy section. Two with an empty display, one of which was the one I got. The one display I got was still up but empty today, I got those on Monday. Most stores didnít look like excell had been there in awhile.

I've gone to all the ones in West Bloomfield, Dearborn, Canton and Farmington so far. Did not find a single one, only empty displays or no displays at all, got invited to look for myself in the back receiving area nothing at all.

The one that told me they restocked 1 single excel box was in West Bloomfield

Brighton, Hartland, Commerce, Wixom, Farmington Hills, Livonia on Haggerty, Livonia on Plymouth and Canton Ford Rd here. Plymouth Rd and Commerce both had empty displays. Haggerty is where they were with the cards.

The auto average is about 4-5 per 30 boxes?

Has anybody else weighed their boxes just outta curiosity? (No I’m not a pack searcher haha) I’m getting 191-192 grams with the occasional 193. But I’ve also had a 190. And I also have a box that weighs 170... did I get gipped by Topps??? (Bought everything from target)

I think I read somewhere in the thread the lower the better, but 170 seems a little aggressive...

Someone correlated color to less weight? I think...

Anyone else believe that these are being backdoored by Target employees? It would explain a lot of the no-shows at particular franchises. Not hard to imagine in today's connected world that word got to some of them eventually and these disappeared.

Higher the better. Likely means both mega packs have a colored mojo or an auto. I opened my three heaviest and two of the boxes had autos. Obviously your mileage may vary.

One that light is peculiar. Could mean you got shorted a mega pack or two. Could also mean you got a redemption but I don't think the difference would be that drastic. Re-weigh and make sure the scale is recalibrated because that sounds like a mistake. But in general lighter is not better, unless there is a redemption. I'm definitely no expert though and mostly speculating.

In reply to taking back receipts:

In my experience, yes. Some stores will say it needs to be within a week or two, but other stores I've bought from have let me go back 3 months.

in addition to my Mega Box receipts, I'll be taking all of my regular Bowman receipts with me.
