Can anyone confirm it's a trailer? I've heard him deny it a few times in blog chat...

Boomo fits the description of trailer trash perfectly. Does he sometimes drink beer when he does breaks?

So I know everyone here is bashing boomo about this, but Live Case Break will be busting this stuff as well starting Friday. I don't know about you guys, but I 100% trust them at LCB. They're at the top when it comes to online breakers and would never look to cheat their customers.

Anyone who cares about their credibility should not be associating themselves with that product.

How would getting this product affect their credibility? They aren't the ones who make it. They were just offered it. Clearly there's some pretty cool stuff in this product and they want their buyers to get a chance to pull some of that. There's also some bogus stuff in the product but you get that with everything.

I bet if it was reversed and LCB was the first to break and Boomo next then you all would feel differently about the product.

That speaks volumes more about boomo than it does LCB or the product.

To me the difference is that you could just hop over to ebay and buy 90% of the cards from that product for a whole lot less than the price of the product. With a new product, at least you have the chance of pulling something that hasn't been sitting around on ebay as bin/bo for months. I just can't see it succeeding because of this. And $159 for a raffel ticket? No way jose. The most obscure graded cards I have ever seen, and the ungraded vintage are the dumbest idea I have ever seen. $10 jersey cards in one touches for $159, laughable.

I wouldn't. A scam is a scam. The people doing the breaking aren't changing my opinion of the product, just my opinion of them.

You can go to ebay and buy just about any card in any product for less than the price of what you pay for the box. I'm not defending the product, I'm defending LCB actually because I know they're trustworthy breakers and would never give their customers product that they thought was a ripoff. Until LCB cans it and decides not to rip the product anymore, I will agree with them. And the raffle ticket bogus, I don't really understand it, apparently they do drawings every week. Idk. But

the thing that bothers me the most about this product/company is how short-sighted they seem to be. If you're trying to break into a oligopolistic market with entrenched competitors, you need to be more aggressive and create a lot of buzz with the first product launch. More often than not, that means losing money or, at best, breaking even on that first product. These boxes should be OVER delivering on value if this company is expecting to succeed in the long run; they shouldn't be trying to turn a huge profit until they have a loyal following of customers. Loading the product with low market value cards just gives it the whole quick money grab / scam type feeling which will keep any reputable distribution channels far away from this stuff.

I completely agree. Also though, I'm not a subscriber but from my understanding they were on the back cover of this month's Beckett? I would think Beckett wouldn't allow any advertising from a company that scammed. Unless they just offered a lot of money for the spot to advertise.

But also, I don't know how to even buy this product by the box. It looks like it'll be online breakers only. That seems a bit sketchy to me.

I don't know if that sounds any better. Sucker the crowd in only to under deliver later on. I think this product is fine at about 50-75 a slot.

Yes you can, and I always assume that people like Bowman and rookie based product as much as I do, so not a good comparison on my part. I guess it's the price point that bothers me, 4 recycled cards for $636? The stuff I like gets you quite a few cards that are fresh to the market, some go up in value, some don't, it's just personal preference I suppose.

If you think it's so sketchy stop trying to pump it in the forum. Take it back over to FCB with the rest of the trolls.

This crap has taken the heat off Five Star anyway. FS is a bargain compared to Heroic Dung.

Excuse me? It's LCB and they aren't trolls. They're probably the best breakers you will find online. Always giving back to their customers and going the extra mile to make sure everything goes well. They buy product to rip for their breakers to not even make profit on sometimes. Please don't call them trolls when nobody from LCB has even posted on here. Seriously.

And I'm not trying to pump it in the forum. I didn't start this thread, I just got onto it because everyone is freaking out over it mainly because they think it's a scam by Boomo or something like that. Meanwhile there's a set of great trustworthy breakers who will be breaking this soon. So you need to think about that as well.

So I guess that means every guy who breaks 5 star isn't considered a good breaker? Or just about every product that flops....

This is clearly not a regular baseball product. I don't see it being promoted as just cards. And what's it to you if you aren't the one buying it?

Why are you pumping a crap product just because you say there are good breakers opening it? Does that change the overall underwhelming junk in the boxes? This isn't about who breaks it. It's about what is broken.

He's not pumping the product, he's pumping the breakers... Some free exposure for the "live crap breakers" or some such folks...
