Before everyone gets too excited, let me first say that it was only the 2008 Topps Series 1 Retail boxes that were 50% off, but still, $4.97 for 5 PACKS plus 1 EXTRA 3-CARD PACK is a pretty good deal. So what did I get for my $4.97 + tax? I'll let you see for yourself.
Let's start with the 1 EXTRA 3-CARD PACK. It turns out that they are part of a painted set by Dick Perez. I got Joba Chamberlain, Curtis Maybin, and David Wright. Not sure if I even like these cards. Oh well.

So I got 6 inserts in 5 packs plus the 3 Dick Perex cards. Not too shabby for around $5. All cards are available for trade. Let me know if you are interested.
