2015 Panini Contenders blaster box 1 of 2

I wanted to see what these cards look like so I picked up a two-box blaster of lot - to mainly pull assorted cards of players drafted this past year.

Because this product is currently $130 per hobby box on Blowout Cards, it may not be a heavily broken down product like Bowman Draft - where there might be hand collated base sets available left and right.

Maybe I'm missing something, but this lot might be a reasonable purchase - especially with two autos [even if they are the $2 variety] per box as sort of a bonus to whatever else I'm going to pull.

The design and images are fairly sharp - as far as player content, in addition to 2015 draftees, there are players from previous drafts, international players and also retired MLB stars / legends who played in college.

Though this product isn't licensed by MLB/MiLB, Panini has an agreement with the Collegiate Licensing Company - so while college baseball isn't followed as strongly as football or basketball, cards of players who came out of college can be tied back with their particular schools.
