Although it's a retail blaster, I believe Threads is a retail exclusive product anyways, and you get two hits per box. I felt it was a worth a shot. Here are the results
Precision Players
Tim Duncan

Rookie Die Cut Jersey
Frank Kaminsky

High Flyers
Darrell Griffith

Wood Rookies
Jahlil Okafor
Jordan Mickey

Rookie Jersey
Terry Rozier

Rookie Jersey Prime
Cameron Payne (#4/25)

Overall Thoughts: the Base Cards are fine, the inserts look OK (I like the Die Cut Jersey Insert set which I believe is a Threads Staple). I thought I had pulled one of the better Wood Rookies (you get 2 a box) in Jahlil Okafor but again like when I pulled his Red Prizm in Select, for some reason he doesn't sell well at all. It's not a great player, but I really like the Cameron Payne Patch's a pretty large swatch. Overall it is what is...a cookie cutter mid end product. Not bad, but not memorable either. Here are some pics from the break

Base cards have a solid look to them

Inserts, always been a fan of the die cut jersey idea

Rookie Jersey hit...I believe the majority of the hits in this set are Rookie based

And best hit of the least it's a nice patch
