Hit 4 Targets today, 2 of them had stock. Bought a retail box and 7 Hangers at one, used the $25 off coupon, spent $118.62 and the other bought a retail box and 8 hangers and used the $25 off coupon and spent $127.58.

Best hits out of the break:

Autos - Mario Hezonja, Salah Mejri

De'aaron Fox Silver RC
Ike Anigbogu Silver RC

Green's - Frank Mason RC, Emergents Ntilikina, OG, D. White.
Red Wave - Thomas Bryant RC, Tyler Lydon RC
Red-White-Blue - Donovan Mitchell, Dennis Smith Jr, Lauri Markkanen, Luke Kennard, Frank Mason, Frank Jackson, Jawun Evans.

Saved a decent amount with the coupons and the Target Red Card.

Thanks,

Rob

PS - All are available including the above and all the extra base, silvers, and colors.

9.99 and they are easily the best value out there. It's almost like you can't lose on them.

Lmao. You act like big name silver are dropping one a box. Print runs might be up cause of popularity, but these are still tough pulls.

For those on the West Coast, keep an eye out for them tomorrow. Cellos and 24pk retails landed at my Target here in Boulder, CO. I swooped up the 12pks of Cello and here are my notables:

Silver:
John Collins RC
Frank Jackson RC

Green:
Markelle Fultz RC
Bam Adebayo RC
Lebron James Get Hyped
Harry Giles Emergent
Ben Simmons Base

RWB:
Tony Dorsey RC
Frank Ntilikina RC
Ben Simmons Base
Stephen Curry Base

Base RC:
Donovan Mitchell RC
De'aaron Fox RC

Not the best box in the world, but man was it fun as hell to rip. At the end of the day I can easily make my money back on these, so 100% worth it.

I spent a few hours driving to targets around me, finally found a cello box and retail box: got MURDERED, if it weren’t for a Mitchell green it would’ve been so much worse

All Prizm silvers have spiked in price this year. Ask the guys that hoarded Giannis, KAT, Porzingis, Embiid or even players like Simmons, Murray and Brown from last year.

The prizm hype has led to inflated prices of boxes/packs and as a result inflated silver prizm prices from the gate. Last year retail could be had for 50-55 a 24ct box and blaster cases for low 300s. I also remember buying two cello boxes for just over 150.

Besides, I opened loads of retail last year and silvers/green were plentiful. 14-15 silver were also much easier to pull in retail than hobby.

Big hits in my 3rd box were a Green Ball and Markkanen. Also hit a red pulsar of freaking Eric Spoelstra, what a waste of a card.

I started a thread in the break section to track my progress. Here's the link if you want to follow along.

1 cello box and 1 retail box from target:
Donovan Mitchell Green Prizm
Lonzo Ball Emergent Green
Caleb Swanigan Silver Prizm x2
DeAaron Fox RWB prizm
Kyle Korve pink pulsar /42
Base of Kuzma, Tatum, Mitchell, Markannen, Smith Jr, Lonzo, Fultz, no dupes other than lower tier rookies, good amount of silver but only like 3-4 rookies

Found some retail 8 cello packs and 5 blasters. Best hits Tatum silver rc, Isaac silver auto, and Isaac silver rc. Some decent other cards but overall really pleased. Tatum definitely helped.
