      I got 1 case of HGSS and 1 case of unleashed when they were first rsaleeed. Both of those sets caused headaches and very non user friendly patterns. They seems to have 2-3 patterns combined into a single box in most cases. I actually had to open about 75% of the packs of each set to get all the expected primes/legends.
