yup and yup.

this "poor man's" leaf retro is $600/box, right?

so, what makes it a poor man's box?
after you break it, you realize you have $500 less.

David Gelf has bought cards from me off eBay just as recent as last week. "Gelfgelfgelf" is his user name

I watched some of those leaf cases broke and guys limped away. There were a few big hits in a small sample of this product. If the next batch of cases dont have more good hits I will agree with the majority here. Guys I am no fan of it just calling it like I see it without buying into the witch hunt.

Looks like Beckett did/is doing a Box Busters episode of this, according to Chris Olds's Twitter.

If this is true, then I can't wait to see a ridiculously loaded box. Shouldn't be hard to do if Beckett gets it directly from the manufacturer.

Wow. Another reason to think Beckett's relevance in this hobby is all but gone.

This whole thing has been amusing. LCB canceled their break of this stuff tonight. Now a major online retailer, not to be mentioned is carrying this stuff for over $400 less per case than Boomo was charging. Unreal.

Why did they cancel it??? Did they realize the product is basically a scam?

They just left a message that they were up until 4 am busting boxes and the break would be tomorrow night. Have no idea what their motives are.

Beckett boxes were pretty junky, aside from the "redemption" pulls...including a BGS 9.5 (I think) 2012 Ichiro base, Don Mattingly Tribute Aut, and a 2012 Topps Bryce Harper /2012.

I guess they think adding on the "points" to the graded base cards makes them more valuable...

I can't believe that Beckett is a sponsor....wait nevermind I do believe it hahahaha

Are the Beckett guys not aloud to say that a product genuinely sucks? That was, I believe, the second one of their videos I've ever watched.

OMG, AN ICHIRO BASE CARD!
