I think he is doing a good job.. (not involved at all), The only cards he seems to be "slamming" are the paper bases. If any of you have opened draft yet, the colored refractors are much heavier that the basic chrome cards.

IMO it is really no rush to get the cards because I feel that if you are spending this much money, I assume most of you did it to collect the player and not flip it to sell...

goodluck with your breaks though.

Feel bad for the superfractor guy so far

I know that when I do breaks that it sounds like I am being really rough on the cards. It is just the sound getting picked up really well through the mic, especially some lower frequencies that make it sound much bigger. I would suspect that the same thing is happening here.

Ive watched the tapes back, it is an illusion the only damage anyone is going to see is scratches from topps. Maybe an occasional paper with a ding, but high end chromes and autos are gonna be pack out condition.
I have had 1 beer in 5 days. my drinks are on the other table, there is a towel over there also that i use everytime i drink or eat the tint bit i have eaten. if i have zero legit feedback for bad shipping or damage in 30,000 transactions, are you guys reallllyyyyyyy worried????? gimme a break, i didnt start yesterday, and the guy that says i could rip better, um a pack every 6 seconds, well ok if you can do it in 5 or 4, god bless you
my only complaint while watching a bit this morning was that damn bird chirping every 4 seconds haha

goodluck with the rest of the break

His total cost would have been around $33,000. Ebay/Paypal fees would have amounted to about $5,000. Around a $10,000 profit or $200 per case.

where does your $5000 come from, he is at 9 percent with 20 percent discount then appx 3 percent on paypal, that's way closer to $3k than $5k, plus on say the super lot that was almost $2K he's going to save a decent amount with the max commission cap

the fees are on the total sales, not the purchase price of his cases.

What percentage of these cases could be considered somewhere in between 'awful' and 'atrocious'?

Assuming there's more costs people are forgetting. I tuned in and saw a guy in the back, guessing he's getting paid/in on it. I'm sure he'll have some chargebacks from some customers he'll have to fight for, so assuming there's some losses there. And some other stuff, of course, but if the figure's right looks like he did pretty well and I'm sure it was fun for like the first five cases, haha.

Does it matter? 10k+ for 2 weeks of "work" is pretty damn good in most anyone's book.

it took me so long to open and sort my jumbo case by each player. He said he would do this again but only with a product that had at the max, 5 cards per box lol.

I'd be interested to know if the cases he got were sequentially numbered or just random. He definately should have hit a super by now.
