I purchased a handful of packs or more of 2012 Panini Triple Play last fall, and then I was surprised with a box for my birthday and a box for Christmas.
After ripping the packs and collating the cards I learned a couple of things:
1. Panini needs to work on their collation within a box. Each pack in th4 24-pack box contains a sticker, but I wound up with 3 to 5 repeats of the same 6 sticker cards in each box. Yuck. Keep in mind, there are thirty different sticker in the subset.
2. Although I completed the ninety card base set, I would need a third box to have a chance at completing the 300 card large set.
I purchased another 24-pack box and have now decided to wave the white flag. No more boxes for me. I increased my inventory of duplicates by quite a bit, because I only needed about 14 out of the 168 cards in the box. Oh, and in case you're wondering, I only found ONE new sticker. I still officially need 15 of the 30 stickers and 56 cards from the 300 card set. Double Yuck.
On top of it all, each box is supposed to contain a "Real Feel" relic card and my box was devoid of any relics. I've written Panini and followed the format that they have outlined on their website. I even made a suggestion that they might want to take a look at their sticker collation within a box. We'll see if anything becomes of my letter. I'm not holding my breath.
I've placed a Triple Play tab just below the blog header. Click there and you'll find my want list. I also have a very healthy stack of duplicates that would love to find a home. Send me an e-mail to mrcoach00(@)yahoo(dot)com if you can help me with my want list OR if you'd like to inquire about some cards for yourself. Every little bit of help is appreciated as I try to complete this fun set!
