Default does anyone get dud case breaks?

seems like reading on here everyone gets pretty good stuff from their cases.

This is the first time I've done it....breaking 2 jumbo cases and I gotta say, it seems like my hits and such are much lamer than what you guys are getting.

do people just not post crappy case breaks?

I got a couple boxes left but not ONE star, semi-star or anything Emerald or Gold parallel. Two cases of completely commons.

Got repeat autos (Drew Hutchinson), repeat relics (Ryan howard), not a single numbered mettle relic, coin, etc. no printing plates

one silk (Verlander )

All the autos are of the Chasing History or Chasing the Dream, but no one anyone's ever heard of.

I do have a ton of base sets to put together.

Definitely been there man. I was embarassed by how terrible my Five Star case was. Only got two cards that were over $100. Ty Cobb bat and Bryce Harper Quotable. EVERYTHING else had maybe a $20 SV. Ended up sending it all back to topps for damaged card replacement though. Hopefully I'll get something sweet to block out my sorrows lol

I generally post all of my case breaks, just so other people can see what to expect. I try to balance out the info available any way I can. But there is definitely a bias towards good breaks over bad breaks. Most people want people to see their good stuff and are too dejected to post their bad stuff.

Don't worry, it's not just you.

I post all my bad stuff as well when I get those breaks. If people only post the monster hits it sets people up to expect monster stuff every time they open boxes. So I post my bad crap as a public service to temper expectations.


....at least that's what I say to make myself feel better. But you said it yourself, you still have a few boxes left. In my case break I definitely got my best hit(Kemp steel coin) in the final box.

The real way of telling the quality of case breaks is to watch the live breaks. They usually tell the whole story.

What are the other auto's? I'm already interested in trying to trade for one of the Hutchinson's.

I've broken 51 cases of BDPP now ... A lot of duds in there.

No reason to post the duds / only show off the good stuff. Although I really haven't done that either.

My last case of 2012 BDPP I ended up with 11 base autos, and 1 refractor auto. No big names, no patch,aflac or red or purple ice. It was horrible. I think it was repacked, it didn't feel right when I started opening the packs but the dumb a$$ I am just kept going. Could have been a dud, but the packs just didn't feel right when I opened them so my guy says repacked. Oh and the cards were all flipped around crazy. Usually there are 2 paper prospects on top, but it wasn't like this. Lesson learned on my part. LCS said he would have taken it back if I thought something was up.

I get crappy box breaks all the time, and I post them most of the time anyway. They typically don't get any replies, but I hope people at least see them and know there are bad breaks out there too.
