Default 2012 Bowman Draft Jumbos: rip or flip?

I got in when they were just over $100 on presell. Are they going to be a better rip or flip at that price? I know they are limited, but other than having 3 autos per instead of 1 like hobby, what would cause someone to spend over 3 times as much on a jumbo?

Need quantity on a rip and flp to make money, otherwise it is just gambling. I think a have read multiple times something like 4 cases is needed to be safe.

Personally I would trade them for Hobby boxes. Less autos but more fun to open 24 packs instead of 12.

I would flip them, they are going for quite a bit right now so it would be a nice little profit!

I've got 3 coming and I will be selling for sure. At $100 profit per box I can use that $300 and buy pretty much everything I want out of other peoples cases (except maybe Gausman high end stuff).

Ripping 2012 Draft Jumbos when purchased at $100/ is as dumb as it gets IMO

Selling boxes is huge no-no on these forums. Personally, I don't care, just giving you a heads up.

So they are a bad buy at $200?

Explain to me which is dumber, ripping one at $100 or buying one at $200? I just want to know, in your obvious eminent wisdom, at what price someone should expect to rip a jumbo box?
