Two retail boxes, which have a nice selection of cards.

Hobby boxes have 36 packs of 8 cards + 1 parallel "gold signature card". Expect 5.52 common sets of 50 per box if collation were perfect. Retail boxes have 36 packs of 5 cards + 1 parallel. Average 3.52 common sets of 50 per box. The ratios for chase cards are the same per card for the two distributions, but fewer per Retail box because there are fewer cards per pack. A gold etched foil card and box-topper medallion coin are Hobby exclusives.

A checklist card, a subscription card, and a 4-fold product catalog are inserted in every pack. Sometimes the checklist isn't included with complete base sets, which is a bit of a gyp because they are 1-per-pack and feature thumbnail images of the full series.

RETAIL BOX 1

Base sets (50): 2 complete, 3 short of 3rd.
Full complement of 1-per-pack cards.
Embossed Foil inserts: 1
Etched Foil inserts: 2
Ken Kelly Art inserts: 1
Parallel signature cards: 36 different / 50

RETAIL BOX 2

Base sets (50): 2 complete, 3 short of 3rd.
Full complement of 1-per-pack cards.
Embossed Foil inserts: 1
Etched Foil inserts: 2
Ken Kelly Art inserts: 1
Parallel signature cards: 36 different / 50

I was 1 card short of 6 complete base sets from two boxes and completed a set of parallels.
