Blowout has it listed as Sport Kings (as opposed to Sportkings if your doing a search) for sale as follows:

18 Box Case; or
3 Box Lot; or
1 Box

I called Chris and he said that he is not yet sure whether the 18 box case will have 6 "mini" three box cases or whether it will just have 18 boxes. He is being conservative and listing the 3 box grouping as a lot (since everything less than an 18 box case could conceivably be "by the box") until he has confirmed that there will be 3 box mini-cases. (Chris, if I have this wrong, please feel free to correct me). 250 18 box cases yield the 4500 packs of product (at 1 pack per box). Someone correct my math if this is incorrect.

Under "Baseball Case Presells", Blowout has 2007 SportKings series A 3 box case. Is this not the same SportKings that we have all been talking about? Is there another "Sport Kings" product?

Chris's sport kings is the same. It's like everything else: the distributor case configuration appears to be different than the hobby shops. ITG hockey is 10-box cases with Chris, and two (or three depending on the year) box cases for dealers. Bowman chrome is 12 or 6. Sport Kings is 3 for dealers, and quite possibly 18 for distributors. Either way there are 4500 total packs.

Well, if a 3 box case is $1150 right now, an 18 box case would be around $6000+. WOW! Personally, if I was going to buy a case, I would want it to be the complete case and not a "mini" case. However, $6000, not sure I would consider that.

For what it's worth, I have always done well breaking the small two-box ITG cases. The ten-box cases that I have seen get broken are not always as good as you might think. (Yes, there are a lot of good hits, but no guaranteed slam dunks.)
