The Basics: Once again, this one comes with a Hobby Collector version and a standard Hobby version. Both boxes have 24 packs, but one has more cards per pack (10 in Hobby), while the other guarantees a hit of some type — sketch cards, artist autographs, printing plates, panoramic sketch cards, parody patch cards and artist Relics — along with some exclusive inserts. There are 110 cards and each will have Bruised parallels that will only be found in Hobby Collector boxes, while Spit (/99) will be found in both versions, while Fool’s Gold (/50) will be in all versions. … Insert cards will include GPK Wacky Packages — a twist on one of Topps’ other memorable non-sport lines. … Artist autos and printing plates will be found in all runs, while double-artist panoramic sketches, parody patches and artist Relics will all be only be found in Hobby Collector boxes. Shaped sketch cards will be found in Hobby and Hobby Collector boxes.
