What are the different types of boxes? Blaster and Hobby I know, what are the others? I've seen "retail" and "mega" any others? Assuming the difference is the variations/inserts that are available in each type of box. 

And what type have people already opened/ordered? I've opened 2 Blasters and ordered 1 Hobby(should arrive tomorrow). 

 

I have opened a mega box which looks like it's a Walmart only thing, not 100% sure about that. It had 15 packs and a 3 card bonus chrome pack.

I just today ordered a retail box from Amazon which looks like it contains 24 packs.

I've seen:

Fat Pack
Hanger Box
Blaster Box
Mega Box - Walmart exclusive
Hobby Box
Retail Box

If you look at the Becket checklist I posted in OP,  it shows the different odds for various inserts.  

I believe the hobby box and retail box both have 24 packs, but hobby ($80) has more/different inserts than retail ($60).

Hobby also guarantees one auto or relic per box and you get a box topper (usually a buyback of an actual 1971 card that's stamped)

Thanks.  I didn't realize it was guaranteed.

I miss getting Beckett Magazine every month. I know eBay is the driven force, and I know you can still get Beckett, but there was something about that magazine that was everything in the late 80s/early 90s.

Started opening the Hobby Box. I was about 10 packs in then took a break.

Got this Goldschmidt Relic card, seems like one of the more meh options :shrug:  

Greatest Moments Box Loader
#32 Francisco Lindor "Not Short on Power", kind of annoying because it's an odd size and doesn't fit in any of the cases or sleeves I have :kicksrock:

The Giants cards 
#7 apparently there are multiple Polo Grounds cards so going by year, this is 1956. Willie’s first time getting to 30/30. The stories on the back of these are great, my favorite cards of this set so far. :thumbup:

2 Flashback cards
BF-1 Hank Aaron the leading vote getter in 71 all star voting 
BF-10 Yaz again, my first special card double

1 Then and Now card
TN-1 Fergie Jenkins& Strasburg NL Wins leadres

Mega Box on the way and since short prints seem to be so scarce I bought a block of 20 on Ebay for $40. Figure it would take a bunch of boxes to land them anyway. The old collecting juices are flowing(and so is the $ :oldunsure: )

Got my box updated on the spreadsheet. 135 cards, so I might need to double check. Got the first French card (Cam Bedrosian). I highlighted the French cards in yellow, because I was doing some searches by card number and realized I was putting numbers down in the wrong spot.

I've been on the fence about joining this journey with you guys. I stopped collecting around 2000-ish, so all of this is kinda confusing for me as I search the interwebs for the best deals.

Have you guys determined what the best bang for the buck is here?

For quantity of base cards, I think retail box.  For best shot at inserts, hobby box.

I may have to get another retail box, or at least some booster packs. Starting to get pricey.

Hobby box is the way to go.  You get a box topper, a guaranteed auto or relic, and each pack (at least the one I got) has a purple chrome refractor.

Also, I did not have one double in the entire box.

I updated the google sheet.  

I added a section at the bottom for autos/relics. Not putting the entire checklist there, just what people have.

All of my chromes are available for trade except any Reds.

Finally entered everything.  Except a few mini cards I didn't see lines for (non-numbered).  What a slog that is.

So only there are minis for the entire set but only some are numbered/100?

I guess?  I have 4 minis and then a numbered Yadi mini /100.  The weird part is the numbered mini is slightly bigger than the regular minis (also black border vs white for regular).

Where did you get your hobby box? Any reviews I see say that they were opened and the autograph and relic were already taken out?

ebay.  Make sure the description says it's sealed.

I am almost bored enough to order a hobby box. Is $80 a good price? Has anybody pulled any cards worth enough that paying $80 a bx seems at all reasonable?

 

Seems reasonable.  I just bought one. Got a Luzardo autograph that sells for about $15-20, a Vlad parallel that sells for about the same, and a 1971 buyback AL batting leaders that looks to be selling for about $80.  Plus all the other cards.

$80.00 for a hobby box sounds pretty good, just make sure it's "factory sealed" as shuke mentioned earlier in the thread. I've bought a couple of retail boxes which I believe have the same amount of packs per box that the hobby box has but the hobby box guarantees certain types of cards.

I paid $79.99 and 74.99 for my retail boxes, only a few chrome card pulls that may range from $4 - $9. Nothing much money wise but I'm doing this for the fun of it and to reminisce in the 1971 look of the cards. As shuke mentioned, I'm going for the base set then get my Oriole inserts.
