I opened seven cases, got $885 for one card . . and will about break even.

That said, if I could get them at that price right now ($40/box; $480/case) there is profit to me made . . .$550, likely no profit.

Odds are abysmal and itís not the bottom. When even the large casebreakers stop @ 1 round, u know itís not a great bust.

it's also partly the economy. even the tough to pull top names aren't selling for what they normally would in previous years.

If you don't mind me asking, who was your big card? I've been too busy w/ FB and haven't been paying much attention to this product. Especially after RAZOR locked in a bunch of the hot prospects.

That's about the best card you can pull from this product, other than his auto'd super, am I wrong?

Got it, thanks. Whew, nice card. I usually like busting Topps BB products but there must be some good reasons that this product is tanking? Oh well, back to FB.

Not wrong . . . Maybe Lars Anderson auto Super would be No. 2 and the Angel Red Autos would be Nos. 3-7 in the pecking order. Still, at No. 2 or 3 or even Nos. 5-10 out of one-plus million, that's not off-the-charts-high. I would have hoped the number of low-end autos would have propped up the exceptional pulls, but it just seems to have limited all the action.

Thanks, nice indeed. I still took a little bath, but the water wasn't quite so cold.

Jacob....I've been clean now for a little over a month....I still have the itch to dive in and buy a few boxes, but I realize I'm wasting my money because it doesn't give me the same high I used to get...I'm going to try a new drug with the tri-star and just minor bats and balls. See if this will get me the buzz until baseball products straighten out...I may hold off and get a few Sterling after I see how you other addicts do with it. Any adverse effects and I will steer away!!

I found a new dealer in my area. Been so long since I had a local shop to go to. I just had to buy something and for some reason bought a box of bowman chrome. I'm trying to decide whether or no to even open it?
