Default Five Star Group Break Question!

My local shop is busting a case of Five Star on release date. Spots are $100 with a Guaranteed hit. Is this a good deal? Never done a group break before. Or should I just sell few more cards and buy a whole box from another dealer?

I would say both options are of equal value. I'm personally going to break a box myself. But if you just want to get a random hit without as much risk then go with the box break.

Well...no one really knows what Five Star is gonna bring. Blowout has the 3-box case (5 hits per box, or 15 hits total) for $1400, which would work out to right around 94 bucks in a group break for a guaranteed hit. So yeah...the price sounds about right. Just bear in mind that you could end up with the Ricky Romero auto

Is Dickey confirmed?! I thought I remembered seeing his name get thrown around for this, but I can't remember if it was finalized or not. Really hope he's in there

I think it's a great deal. How else can you get the fun of opening one of these without spending at least 450.00 for a box.

Thanks for input, I may just try one spot in break and buy box. It's really tempting!

Just talked to my local shop owner and he said Five Star has pushed back release to 11/14!
