I hate that these are only available from Topps direct, at least in the Hobby and Collector's tins.

So, I opted for retail blasters which I was allowed to buy.

First Wave, I opened 20 blasters for making sets.
Blasters have 10 packs of 6 Cards plus 1 "patch" card.

Collation was stellar in my opinion.

4 Mini Master Sets of 150 Cards
1 Base set short 3 cards
1 Blue Parallel set with extras
1 Patch Card Set of 17 with extras.

Didn't hit any autos or sketches, nor did I expect to. Did get a handful of numbered parallels in the mix.

Only complaint is the "Heroes" Chase set. 10 card set with 1 per pack. I didn't even bother sorting them all, but that's 1 set per blaster which is absurd. Would have much rather had another base card in place of about 1/2 to 2/3 of them. I'll honestly end up throwing one set in with every base set and then tossing the extras as nobody in the future is going to need any of these.

Blasters are a good way to build sets as you get more cards than a whole hobby tin. Buying 1 or 2 at the store might not get the same stellar collation, but that's any random box choice.
