Where to buy: BlowoutCards.com

Boxes per case: 16
Packs per box:
 7 (plus one-card bonus Relic pack)
Cards per pack: 9
Cards per box: 64
Base set completion: 
110 of 110 (100 percent)
Duplicates: plenty of extras — see next category

Notable stats about this break – Received between four and six copies of every card in the 110-card base set and completed each of the insert sets at least once, excluding parallels. (Did not receive any parallels rarer than the one-per-box Black versions.) Created just one of the 10-card nWo sets, but the case yielded three of the 2K16 sets, three Rookie of the Year, two Then & Now (one card short of a third) and four NXT Called Up insert sets.
