This is my only complaint with BO. Why is it necessary to waste this money for overnight shipping if the cases are sitting in their warehouse? I understand Topps doesn't allow products to be released before the street date, but a distributor should be able to ship products so they arrive at the customer's house on release date. Amazon and other retailers seems to have no problem operating this way (for products other than cards - I have never ordered cards from anywhere else online).
Is there some other reason I am unaware of that BO only ships on street date?
