Is the “Catch Me if You Can” pack in MLB The Show 16 worth buying?

By on @pastapadre

Today a fourth special limited-time pack made its way into MLB The Show 16. The first three were really not great investments, as the promise of “increased chances” at pulling higher valued cards has remained pretty hollow. Increasing already miniscule odds by slight amounts does not justify paying at over five times the price of a standard pack.

The “Catch Me if You Can” pack includes six player cards plus the supposed doubled odds of drawing Golds/Diamonds. The packs also contain the first opportunity to grab some new Prime and Rookie Flashback cards. So is this a pack worth purchasing?
