    Fanatics Prizm came along with three mosaic hangers.

    Said I wasn’t opening but came home drunk from golf and couldn’t help myself.

    Panini needs some quality control but not complaining overall.

    Always sell the spikes. You'll be able to buy one back later on if you really want to.

    Well, if CSG sticks with that decision, they’ll lose a lot more money than $1,500

    Hopefully for his sake it gets sorted out. Not sure how you lose 1 card from a 50 card sub. I've heard good things about CSG so this is a little disappointing BUT given they've had an increase in submissions lately a screw up was, unfortunately, bound to happen.

    Much better than the the one I saw that opened a box with absolutely nothing in it.

    I'd be so pissed.

    I really hope there’s a point where the prices of wax come a little back to earth considering single prices have dropped so much.

    Not saying like $100 hobby boxes everywhere, but $300+ for Bowman hobby’s are stupid.

    You would think/hope. But it sure doesn’t seem like it matters at the moment because so many people are willing to gamble

    unfortunately it has zero to do with what the cards inside are worth. It's simply what people are willing to pay.

    For example, a Trevor Lawrence RPA (Glove relic) vertical /10 from Flawless sold for $2,231 yesterday.

    So you pay $9,000 for a briefcase of Flawless and you get a monster hit. And that monster hit doesn't even pay for 25% of the briefcase.

    That's an extreme example. Flawless briefcases are quite possibly the worst thing to buy in the hobby. But it doesn't stop people from doing it. Including close friends of mine who I beg not to do it.

    I mean, look at Prizm….what level of card would you have to hit to pay for the box?

    Prizm is better. It's still a losing proposition, but there are many cards you can hit that would cover the cost of the box.

    There's still craziness involved.

    For example, I bought a Mahomes Stained Glass yesterday for a couple hundred more than the cost of a box.

    Stained Glass are roughly one in every 5 CASES. So one in every 720 packs

    like I said. Losing proposition.

    Similar to the flawless TLaw I posted, glove relics aren't as valuable as patch relics. Same as Red Wave's aren't as valuable as other parallels.

    An unnumbered silver auto sells for way more than a Red Wave /149

    there are boxes like this that are much better "investments" than the mainstream stuff.

    Topps Chrome UEFA CL hobby boxes and Lite boxes are similarly good value

    I get it. But my point was, the chances of getting a card in a box you pay $1000+ for are so slim that it’s ridiculous. Obviously you can’t always make your box back, but the opposite side of that coin shouldn’t be 75% loss :twocents:

    my biggest issue with football cards is that WRs are criminally undervalued. If WR cards were worth more, then the cost of boxes wouldn't be such a tough pill to swallow
