Honestly, the sketch card market the way it is today, if you are a collector with the money to buy cases, you are better off buying singles of exactly what you want.

Anyway, based on the definition of troll that I read, I have trolled up your PC thread like crazy! Sorry about that. I do have some relevant comments though... First of all, I think this is the first ever mail day that I received more than you! Time to update my post on your commission thread Second, I'm pretty freaking amazed these haven't sold yet. They are outside my price range, or I'd snap them up in a hot second.
Yeah, you're probably right about that--it's sort of a three way ( ) dynamic with adding flippers to the mix. Buying singles is always the smart play, but sometimes you just need a little mystery in your life

Regarding those three cards, I am also surprised they are still around

Buying high and selling low is working out great for me
