I was very curious as to what these boxes held inside when I saw them lying in the card dump-in. Had to pick one up and let's just say I paid a little more than I had expected when it was rung in at the checkout counter.
The box promises 16 factory sealed packs and I was blessed by the hockey card gods to have received an extra pack. Above in the photo is a sample of what was inside, read more to check out the rundown.
