those points can be redeemed on their website, and sometime in may they will give away an auto'd babe ruth bat.

when i emailed the product head about PSA authentication #'s for the big prizes i got a rather vague and "beat-around-the-bush" type of response, and he did not include the numbers. but i can call his office and speak directly to him.

needless to say, this product wreaks of fanbro and the truckloads of horse dung that goes with all that

one of the Heroes of Baseball guys was on Cardboard Connection Radio. His analogies were hilarious as to why this product is filling a niche. Also said overall they have a $.50 on the dollar return. So for every great high value item there are gonna be some stinkers. A genius idea...walk around a show buying up some good stuff and crap and double your money selling "lottery tickets". This guy sounded like a joke, but people eat up the chance to score big. Save your money and just buy a nice card.

I seen this box today and was like wow what a surprise a good box.

Ed's 2013 Heroes of Sport Hot Box! - YouTube

Then I seen this post over at FCB

Heroes of Sport HOT BOX

In case you dont feel like jumping around. The box was created with in the past week or 2 according to ebay sales of these cards.. Meaning the box more than likely is a plant because they think collectors are morons who will now run out and but boxes of this poo in a box because of this "break".


Hey guys you think the non puppet show will tell it how it is yet?

The Harper was purchased off eBay on December 22 lmfao! I'm guessing the guy who opened the box isn't very excited since it's not his cards. This is such a scam though. If you don't have a checklist you can just create the product and fill it as you go. I will never buy a product without one. I wonder how much a Heroes "Hot box" would sell for on eBay unopened now lmfao. It seems the product costs so much because of the few hot boxes in the whole product. if they had spread the hot boxes out into the other boxes their wouldn't be as many complaints.

I know the product sucks, but apparently the company is legit as Blowout has begun to sell the products. There has been some nice cards pulled, just not enough to justify the price.

They probably gave Blowout a sweet deal on them, just so they wouldnt have to eat their inventory.

-Legit as in it exists and produces a product? Sure

Legit as in devoid of dishonest practices that sully the hobby and make it more difficult for a legit start-up in the future to do a similar product? From all outward appearances, not so much.

I heard the Jackie Robinson was. I think the redemptions are on the up and up. The heroic tickets and points for a Ruth bat....time will tell. Looks like they've been juicing the cases lately. Shoulda done that at the beginning.
