And the high end base chrome lot struck out.

I had dreams of all the awesome cards that would be pulled and seeing the results really puts it into perspective. Yeah some people made out really well here, but a lot of people really struck out, even with 50 cases worth of the stuff. In the end, seems like buying singles is still the best way to go in most situations for picking up certain players. If you're gonna bust stuff for the thrill then that's all good, but hoping for a certain player is gonna leave you dissapointed 99% of the time...
Thankfully, that did not hold true for the Plawecki auto slots (9 base, 6 Ref, 1 Gold & 1 Orange). I am def up on both lots, thx Boomo!

Agree. I killed it overall. I'm wondering perhaps if the big loser's lost due to poor understanding and lack of knowledge?

hope people don't get bright ideas to try this with upcoming products, it absolutely crushes the value/resale the more cases people break.

My Andrew Heaney gold auto (only one ending Thursday night, consensus best left-hander in the draft) sold for $42. Seen several other gold and orange autos go for way less than I thought they would. I can't help but think the huge break had some effect on it.

so maybe now that the break is over/almost over people that got shut out on their risky lots will start buying up singles.

i see what you are saying, but if boomo's break had any effect on the singles market, it was minimal. the only ones it would effect were those involved in the break and that's if they had all their hobby money wrapped up in the break. very minimal.

50 cases worth of cards is a drop in the bucket. what boomo broke wasnt even 1% of production.

bingo this break had nothing to do with the current prices. The economy sucks right now. People don't have extra money due to the holiday season. Baseball isn't on people's minds. These are just some of the reaons not because a guy opened 50 cases.

Economy is in the tank (still), but more importantly - it's the offseason. People are buying football / basketball right now.

It's the offseason--prices are always lower than in season
It's right around the holidays--discretionary income usually goes elsewhere
Economy still isn't great--same as above

Boomo's 50 case break, less than 1% of the BDP print run, has very little impact. Now maybe it takes a buyer out of the market on some of the players (Russell for instance), but overall, it shouldn't effect anything too much

I thought 5000 cases hobby produced this year, is almost 10% of the total hobby run. I'm not sure how many Jumbo, but it couldn't make it down to 50 cases Hobby being less than 1% could it?

Thank you!

But I think it's simply the off season, and holiday time...I know personally, I'v e been trying to NOT buy becasue it is the holidays, but sometimes I just can't resist...that's how I ended up with your $42 gold Heaney...

Don't think Boomos break has any effect at all on the market...not even a little...

Oh, I wasn't clear what I meant. I was thinking more like buying boxes or even cases hoping for a single player, not a slot in 50 cases. I'd considered buying Mets slots in some BDPP case breaks hoping to hit Plawecki stuff, but it doesn't seem at all worth it to me now after seeing exactly what was pulled out of 50 cases of the stuff. Just way too much risk.

The base-blue auto lot you made out well on, but the other one didn't seem that great to me. One gold and one orange, with completed sales of $43 and $48 on ebay for those cards where the slot went for $72.56 + whatever the shipping was. So maybe up about $20, but those are initials sales of those cards, which I'd expect to go down as December goes on. Just seems meh to me. Now in the long run if Plawecki does well then it's going to be awesome, and there was always the chance at something more, so maybe it's worth it to people. I guess I'd just rather be patient and try and find good deals on singles though. I know you don't regret anything, which is awesome, but I have a feeling there are a lot of people out there that ARE regretting buying their slots.

I view them combined and consider the Orange sale an aberration. He is PC so I am not selling anyway. Also, if I bought all those autos individually the shipping would have been much higher. I paid $13 shipping for both auto slots and base chrome slot. For a PC guy, the 50 case break was incredible.

These cards are selling at very low prices. It's hard to justify the $60 dollar price tag on a box when case hits are selling for just around 70% of that.

It's hard to justify buying any box of cards, too small of sample size. You'll "win" some and lose most.

I just looked at the list from the link provided for the player tally case breakdown. Am I missing something or was there really not a single Harper Rookie Autos in this break?

This is true. I'm just saying, with this particular product, it doesn't appear that there is the slimmest chance of winning on a box, case or even 10 cases. Even the jumbo patches (~1:10 cases) will not make up for the cost of half a case.
