when i bought a blaster of 2015 topps series 1, i received a target coupon book with coupons for other 2015 topps products. one of the coupons was for $5 off a 2015 topps heritage value box. now, i refer to blasters as blasters and have thought value boxes were the smaller boxes that don't have individual packs, but rather a cellophane wrapped block of cards.
i had my coupon when i went to the local target on tuesday. heritage was there, but it was still in the shipping boxes. i went back to target on wednesday, and the boxes were still waiting to be opened and shelved. finally, i went to a different target on thursday, and found a value box. or, at least what i considered to be a value box priced at $9.99. when i got to the cashier, i handed her my coupon, but it didn't work. she said that she thought that the value box was bigger than the one i had grabbed (a 35-card box), but she forced the coupon through anyway. so, i got 35 cards for $4.99. not bad. i did later confirm that topps calls blasters value boxes.
anyway, here are some of the cards that i found in my value-not value box.
this was the first card on the stack. it's not an action variation, in case you were wondering.
card number 2 in my box. it's not a traded back variation.

willie mays/adrian gonzalez then and now
holofoil inserts - matt kemp
there was one more of these in the box, but it will fit better in a future post.
here are some more of the regular ol' base cards.
here's a checklist - it is sort of a team card
i also had a couple of rookie stars card, including this one that is split between the phillies and the giants.
