So, I usually don't buy boxes that are hundreds of dollars. I usually talk my wife into a box of Draft and feel lucky when she's cool with it. However, this time I told her how it was the best odds to pull something great and even if you don't, you generally get a graded auto that is still pretty nice. She went along with it and now I wish she hadn't. I'd put this up against any other, non error packed, box for lowest resale value. It was box 264 of 500. Two non auto base chrome slabs. Here's the damage:
The last 3 Meadows 9.5s have averaged about $13.
The last 2 Darvish 9s have averaged $5 with the most recent one selling for $3.
The Melky Mesa sells for around $10.
The Hultzen might sell for a buck if I shipped it free.
The Trout might sell for $2 on a great day.
All in all, it'd be tough to sell my wife on another $200 box of cards when my return was right around $30. Oh well, swing and a miss.
