I think I may have posted about these a couple of times but I can't remember and I am too lazy to go back and look. One of the two LCSs I frequent puts together small packs of cards to purchase for $10. Lately I haven't been winning much on the bid board so I have been picking up a pack or two. The packs usually contain 1-2 rookie cards and 1-2 hits. The hits many times are in person autos on cards which some people shy away from but he seems to have some good sources to get the autos and it isn't like I am going to sell them.
One of the allures are randomly inserted bonus prizes. He usually has a case that contains 1 1st place prize, 2 2nd place prizes and 4-5 3rd place prizes. I have won a few times and have been on a bit of a lucky streak. These are $1,000 cards but usually some nice stuff pops up.
Here are 6 packs I have picked up over a few visits.
So here are the two 3rd place prizes I picked:
Since doing these scans I have picked up a few more packs so more to come...
