with 40 autos or so in this set it wont be a suprise when the vast vast majority of case breaks will be significantly weak. i bought 4 cases this year but luckily i have sold them all.

GL highlander. wish you well on the rest of your breaks.

it really is. however, dont expet too much from draft. products are so watered down and thinned out with the number of autos that breaking has become almost pointless. we cant expect 2005 and 2006 to come around again. i wouldnt put it past topps to have 35-45 autos in the draft set. and who knows whats up with razor.

Yeah, the razor deals are totally killing BC products.. I'm not dedicated to a case of Draft yet, but I may buy a box or two of BC just out of sheer stupidity. I'm a collector, the buy-it-even-though-you-know-you're-not-gonna-get-squat gene is in my blood

I used Microsoft Live to pick up a case. I couldn't resist. It brought the delivered price down to $45 per box for a 12-box case ($540 Total). I'm thinking I can still find value at that price, but the going rate of ~$750 is WAY too high. Thanks Microsoft (don't say that too often).

Box #12

Veteran/Rookie Refractors
Pat Burrell
Gil Meche
Phil Hughes
Albert Pujols
Kelly Johnson
Alex Gordon

Veteran Blue Refractor
Zack Greinke 130/150

Veteran Red Refractor- My first!
Yadier Molina 2/5 (kind of a let down, but I got excited seeing that flash of red!!)

Prospect Gold Refractor
Christian Marrero 3/50

Autograph
Angel Villalona Redemption

Well, I guess that qualifies as a big ending. I would have liked better players on some of the refractors.....especially that red one!! The Villalona helps make up for that.

Overall, I am pretty happy. I'm glad I used the Microsoft cashback thing for this case though!! I will say that collation on this case was MUCH better than last year. I only got 1 triple of the base cards and that was in the very lat pack. I didn't get a complete set, but last year I was getting 4 or 5 of some guys and non of a LOT. I haven't checked to see if I got all the prospects, but I know I got 4 or 5 of some of them. No doubles on any refractors either, which is always nice. I still only got 1 of the Fukudome "veterans" and 2 of the rookies.

Good luck to everyone else on your breaks! Most everything will be on eBay soon--thanks for looking!

I should have said that everything is on eBay already. I listed before I checked back here or checked my email, so sorry for people who were looking to get cards before I listed. I would have had a hard time determining prices as there have been very few sales so far to go by and I'm not sure what a lot of this "should" go for. Thanks for the interest though and check my auctions!

just curious why you would list all the refractors individually that you got? You are going to get hammered on the fees for the ones that wont sell

If by hammered you mean $5.40, I guess you are right. I sold 36 of the refractors for about $42(not counting fees). The 36 I didn't sell cost me $5.40 in listing fees. I'll just relist them in a lot and take what I get--it should make up fot that money and more. I've tried listing things like this in lots from the start, but I don't ever end up doing as well as I think I should. Many people are looking or specific players or teams. I have found that so many cards like refractors and other parallels like that sell so strangely that it is hard not to list them separately. Sometimes you get hit, but many times you get surprised. For example, some of the cards that didn't sell were Matusuzaka, Alex Gordon, Alfonso Soriano, Miguel Cabrera, BJ Upton, and a Robinson Cano blue refractor. Some that did sell were Gil Meche, Eric Chavez, Felix Pie, Derek Lowe and the best-seller of all, Jim Edmonds!! There are some in the first group I would swear should have sold and some in the second group I almost didn't list.....you never know. If $5-10 makes or breaks me on a case--I shouldn't be doing a case!! A year or two ago I actually listed my Bowman blue parallels separately and I was stunned by how well some sold. I got $6-7 for a Frank Thomas......that paid for any listing fees of ones that didn't sell right there and then I sold a bunch more.

Actually I shouldn't have even done this case, as it was the autos and "good refractors" that hammered me. Other than Villalona they sold like CRAP! The prospect refractors weren't any better either. With the "cashback" option, I'll work out OK, but this was definitely a product that lived up to the negative hype......at least for me. This case is just payback for my BC case last year where I got a Joba auto, Lincecum refractor auto and Martinez XFractor auto!!
