    Definitely. I mean I don't mind not having a chance at some huge card, and getting an assortment of ok cards. But don't price it like you have a 30% chance at some huge hits when the chance is more like 0.5%. But yeah, i guess that's why they do it

    So I won the 3 spots in the 14 caser. We have the rights to 100 cases in the thing(1800 autos). Anyone have any interest in splitting or going in on the 100 cases(can do 50 as well). It's the 1st Skubal card(not 1st edition). I got the spots at a decent price . Here's what it would cost on 50 and 100 cases(he said there will likely be extra cases as well) Average autos will be around 30-35 per player.

    I won
    BCP- Tarik Skubal - $581- $1162
    CPA- Tarik Skubal (auto) $1575- $3150
    CPA- Grant Little (auto) $319- $638

    Was at target grabbing eggs , They didn't have 2020 bowman so I grab a stars and stripes blaster. Hit an auto of someone I've never heard of which is rare. Look him up he was on the U 14 usa team and is a class of 2024 kid. Wtf

    HA HA, the only reason I find that funny is because I saw a few boxes of them and thought hmmm maybe I should grab em. Then I looked up what they were and glad I didn't.

    I bought one of those boxes too and got a Robert Hassell auto patch number to 399. Potential top 10 pick. Still don't think its worth much, but about as good as you can expect from that box id guess

    Yea, still won't be worth much even then I'm sure. It was just $20 to scratch my itch to open some cards and with Tigers having #1 pick was hoping to get lucky and grab a torkelson.

    waste of money, you can't possibly make that back can you? I mean even if you get like the 1 of 1 what would that go for, 20K? Plus if you go eBay route you pay them too. Then say you think man I'll hang onto them all hoping he hits it big and his stuff doubles or triples in price, that's a big if, in my eyes. I think if I had 85k to spare I would invest in something a little less risky like gold or silver.

    Nuts. And thats part of why prices have gone crazy because these breaks and people making videos buying all these products up so average person can't grab them. I'd love to grab a skubal auto, but those prices are out of my comfort zone

    Did it? I know the one that allegedly auctioned for over 16k and linked in this thread earlier was immediately relisted after it ended. Too many shady scumbags on ebay trying to push prices up with fraudulent auctions.

    On average you can hope for 30-35 autos. 100 cases (likely more) 1800 autos total. How much color idk. I'd guess his base goes for 1k though.

    I’m just a wife trying to recoup the money her husband spent on card breaks. I’m not a card expert. Please check the pictures closely before bidding. It is never my intention to mislead anyone, but sometimes mistakes happen.

    Anyone with a lot of experience sending cards in for grading that would be willing to take a look at some pictures of a card I found that I want to send in? My old neighbor when I was kid decided he didn't want his basketball cards anymore and gave me all of them in a box. I went through them recently and most of them are junk wax era stuff, but there is one in there that got my attention. It's the Tim Duncan metal universe rookie card. The card sells ungraded on ebay recently for about $35. However PSA 10 are going for over $450 (and appears some have sold over $1000 recently), 9 for over $160 and even 8s are going in the 50s. Despite sitting in a box for years, the card appears to be in really good shape. Doubt I get a 10 on it, but was wondering if someone with experience could tell me if they thought I had a shot at a 9 with it

    I also have some LeBron rookies I want to send in and am looking at other potentials to fill out an order at some point

    The gloss was hard to get my camera to focus. If you need better looks at any part let me know and I can take more

    That is in great shape for Metal Universe. The back bottom right corner looks a little soft so I don't think it'll Gem but it looks like it has a pretty good shot at a 9 assuming there aren't surface issues.

    As always, it is hard to accurately assess a card without having it in hand and looking at it in the right lighting.

    The McGrady one was also in that box but it's corners are softer and that card only goes for $39 as a 9 and $17 as a 8, so not worth sending in hoping for a 9 when its likely a 8

    Year? Set? The higher the value the quicker the turnaround time will be. If you don't want to mess with doing the legwork to send it in you can always send it to me and I'll submit it with one of my orders.

    Also found a Kobe Bryant Collector's Choice Rookie in there, in similar shape to that Duncan. Centering isnt the best though unfortunately. Don't think that is a very sought after Kobe rookie either

    Yeah I was finally able to be home and get on the computer when he posted them at 2. Otherwise they seem to always sell out in like 5 minutes. Everyone of his I've watched there have been no duds so I really wanted to get in one and I was lucky i did.

    When I want to check the general value of cards, and have a bunch to lookup, I just use Beckett. But if I wanted to check for a more exact amount of what to expect if I were to sell it, eBay is best place to look. It just takes too long to check eBay when you have a ton of cards to check when you just want to get a sense of the value.

    My opinion, anyway.

    Anyone have any success with Bowman yesterday/today?

    Wanted to get a couple boxes regardless, but I got a box at my LCS for $300(barf, but I was using money from fiance/parents from birthday, so said fuck it), and a friend in Dallas got me one for $275. Went retail hunting this afternoon, and at the first target the vendor was there stocking. When I got to the shelf, there was someone next to him with a cart and had the box of all the bowman/mosaic. Asked if I missed on the good stuff, and luckily the guy shared a couple blasters with me, as well as 2 value packs.

    I'm happy as hell and can't wait to see what I get.

    Do these guys know exactly when the shelves get restocked? I’ve thought about asking a manager if they know when their vendor comes in but i feel like they wouldn’t care and just say they dunno.
