Yup. What they charge here is probably better than what you'd find on ebay. I saw a 2 box lot on eBay with free shipping for 330 the other day......went back to get it and it was sold.

I think they are at 167 here, which is almost as cheap

no this is not below direct cost...my local lcs presell was 130 so i know he was making more than 11 bucks a box He jacked them up at release to 119 hobby and 199 jumbo and they sat this year did not do 1/10th as well as last year. 119 for a jumbo is good and really flipping on ebay would not be worth the 20 profit after fees shipping and dealing with the canadian mail now would it.

Order online here its probably your safest bet and generally the best price anyway! Good luck.

No, you have to pull 0 cards, because you can flip the sealed box.

How is $20 nothing? You drive to the card shop, buy 10 of them, come home, sit on your ass and list them on eBay, and boom! at least $200 for that.

Kids these days....

What are you two talking about? Let's rewind our time machines back to when BO put these up for pre-sell at $800 per case ($100 per box), and they stood at those prices for several weeks until they slowly crept up to $1,000, and then eventually bolted to $1,400. Now, if BO's presell point was $800 (with free shipping), you've gotta believe direct cost was south of $725 for BO to make any profit, so about $90 per box or less. So if the Canada shop has them for $119 and purchased them direct, he's making $29 per box at least, which is a 30% profit margin. How many card shops do you know festus that make a 30% profit margin and go under?

what am i talking about? let me tell you... dont dealers raise prices with the market auctionjmm??? if a product tanks does that dealer say "nope, i'm keeping my price right where it is"? no, he drops it with the market. so i still say he would NOT be in business with this type of pricing. this is july 23rd auctionjmm, not may 18th. god, maybe he has gypsy queen up there for 100 a pop! also, wouldnt you imagine canadian dealers would be paying more for shipping not to mention customs? youre 30% figure is crazy.

Okay. So I guess we are settling for Option A which is that Thepizz is lying. Because "liar" is the default designation this board gives to ANYONE who posts a story about how they got a good deal on something or made a good discovery or whatever other blessing they come across in life. This place is filled with jealous haters.
