I "knew" that it was going to be one of the best sets in forever, I was absolutely "sure" of it. I bought 5 cases and you need to understand one year ago I wasn't really that into the card game either, but I dropped 3350 or whatever on 5 cases and sat on them for months, hid them in a closet and would think about how I didn't ever want to bust them. Finally after they kept DROPPING in price I just decided that apparently I had no idea what I was doing and in february I went to a card show and was able to sell the boxes until i got my money back, which was $3300 that I had invested so that's a lot of money and it was hurting my ability to buy any singles because I thought I'd have flipped it for a $1000 profit easy by then.

Well....I was right. It's a great set and I could have made several hundred a case, but the fact it took a lot of the no-name guys getting more hype in-season and guys like bauer going off to really jump the price makes me wonder if I'll ever want to wait 9 months to profit 30-40 percent on something like that again...IF it all works out. Obviously I'm not scoffing at the profit percentage.
