I think enough people have been burned to shy away. I know I have. I don't mind gambling, but it's like a double gamble, without crunching the numbers, first if the average return is $200 and as noted the box prices are high, pre any type of sale and then you have to expect in most boxes you probabaly average a 50% return, your $199 is really worth $100. BO is smart and can prey on the gambling needs of it's collectors while unloading slow moving boxes. I'm not complaining, they are not forcing anyone to "play". it's a great idea, very similar to what Brian Gray does with leaf and makes a lot of money. But why do people think he is ripping off the hobby?
