Are you all ready to see the aftermath left behind after cracking 13 boxes of 2014 Topps Turkey Red?  I am making a run at completing the whole base set today.  After ordering 20 boxes of product, let’s see how realistic of a goal this is.

I am going to show the process of how the 13 packs stacked up, but I won’t be highlighting each individual pack.  I’ll share the autograph per pack and then I will set out to put the cards in numerical order in chase of the complete set.  Here it goes, let’s see how this works…

Time to crack 13 of these!

14 pack stacks with one of them being yesterday’s pack, leaving a total of 13 from today.

The autos. I was let down by how many double/triple autos I ended up with. However, the base cards still hit in those packs, which isn’t hard since there is only 100 cards.

Grouped by the 10s in preparation of seeing how many cards I need to complete the set…if I haven’t already.

Here is the link to the set checklist.

Doubles, triples,….

Can anyone help me complete the set? I am only 9 cards away if my count is correct. Twenty boxes in and I fell just short of a successful set completion mission.  With the way some of the packs hit with identical cards in the same exact order, I am willing to bet the cards I am missing would hit in one certain box.  It’s just a hunch, but wouldn’t that be something if one more box would hit with all the cards needed to complete the set?

Overall, this was a really fun process for me.  It has been a long time since I have cracked this level of product in multiples like this in the same day.  If only I could do this with some Triple Threads, Museum Collection, or Five Star, haha!  The base cards were great, but the autos for the most part left me wanting a little more.  I was grateful to add two more prinitng plates, the Kemp and the Verlander, along with a nice Marisnick.

What’s the most expensive product you have ever cracked?  What was the best hit from that cracking?
