Default $500 boxes producing $50 in cards? How about $700 box producing a $20 card?

Wasn't this pulled in the break tonight?

Yes. TONS of wonderful cards! Like:

2012 Topps Yu Darvish BASE RC graded a 10
2008 UD X Evan Longoria RC graded a 10
2008 UD X Ichiro Exponential graded a 10
An ungraded, unauthenticated 1968 Nolan Ryan Rookie
A redemption for a Jackie Robinson Cut Auto-GL ever seeing that, even if it is real I'm skeptical it's been authenticated.
Plus TONS of Garbage.

Boomo and his minions, good lord...

I'm not very intelligent but I'm so grateful that I had the mental capacity not to fall for this break

Seriously...did anyone expect any better?

There is zero transparency (except perhaps, now we know where/how much they paid for their cards )

There were less buyers I believe, some people blew $700 on the break to pull $150 in cards. What a joke.

I'm sure they will. I don't think he'd last long pulling that, and I really don't think he's a dishonest guy.
