Wouldn't even have to say that. With ebay's return policy, you could theoretically just return the items if you didn't like the hits.

I dont join any break that doesnt show every card on camera. I don't trust anyone doing breaks no matter what their feedback or how many guys have their nose up their ass if they arent transparent in the break results.

This guy is going to lose thousands between the chargebacks and the lots that do not sell nice. (Some will oversell no doubt but many more will bomb imo)

I wish him nothing but the best but his ends badly imo.

I sell big hits for guys in my breaks too. It could be that.

I usually do it for free minus fees and shipping, but sometimes I get 5%.

yah but dont you show all your cards on camera? boomo for whatever reason sees that as unnecessary. i dont care if he's the pope, i want to see every card pulled if i'm paying for team break.

Some of those lots are already well above a reasonable price with hours left to go.

About the only way to make $$$ would be to buy the base/chrome lots.

I'm expecting the Almora base-blue lot to end above $1500 which is just too high for much of a profit. For a PC, maybe it's worth it, but you could cherry pick singles off ebay for $1500 and probably come out with more.

Baaaaah. Never bought anything off him until 5 minutes ago. I snagged one of the lots because I thought it would be fun to get a ton of base chromes of one player. I'll probably not watch one second of the break.

These seem like great deals. With around 600 boxes to be broken, you can assume you are going to get 200+ total base chromes, refs, blue refs, and gold refs for less than a cheap steak dinner.

Well, I show the pack being opened, but I don't individually show every base card. You will see without any doubt if there is a hit or parallel in every pack, but you might not know what all the base cards are.

For example, if I am opening a jumbo pack, I would skip past the base and just show the hits/inserts in the middle. For a BDPP hobby pack, I will span the pack, but the only things I pause on are the chromes/hits/parallels.

Boomo does A LOT of consignment selling.

I've never had anything but great business transactions with him - both buying from and selling to him.

While I might not always agree with the manner in which he handles certain situations in regards to his tact, I would have no qualms, what so ever, participating in one of his group breaks. I have never seen any reason to question his business integrity and honesty.

Unfortunately though, I do believe that this break is going to cause significant issues for Boomo. There is potential there for a large number of chargebacks from individuals unhappy with the contents of the lot(s) they won. Due to Ebay's return policy, they are free rolling.
