Is this set worth opening?

We know that a Topps Chrome MetaZoo 2022 Blaster Box costs $25. We’ll take a look at two different methods.

Please do keep in mind that all calculated values err on the side of caution, it is definitely possible to get better results if you pull high-end chase cards!

Selling everything

Selling everything will take a lot of time, but it is also a way of calculating the true value of a Topps Chrome MetaZoo 2022 Blaster Box, and if it is around break-even it could be a way to chase the high-end Superfractor and Autograph cards!

 Subset   Expected Value 
Base Set $9.57
Cryptid Camera/First Sighting $0.75
Battle Cards $0.47
Lore $0.78
Creator Cards $0.28

Summing the data above we can see that all contents of the box sell for $11.86, equaling 47.4% of the box price.

Only selling the easy to sell cards

Another way to approach the question of whether it is worth opening is by taking only the cards that are to sell. This may involve opening multiple boxes if you want to sell complete sets, so this is mostly interesting if you want to open cases. Still, it can be a nice way to easily recoup some money!

In the table below you can see the easy to sell cards.

 Rarity   Expected Value 
Base Set – Base $1.66
Base Set – Refractor $2.67
Base Set – X-Fractor $2.67
Battle Cards – Base $0.28
Lore – Base $0.50

This gives us a total of $7.78, or 31.1% of the box price.
