Default My first and last box of NT

Bought a box from Cards Infinity had him open it so no pics yet. I don't even remember all of the hits, but nothing great:

Nate Archibald & Oscar Robertson printing plates
Blake Griffin timelines jersey
OJ Mayo dual patch
(2) 11 vs 12 auto RCs (no one big)
Joe Johnson timeline auto jersey
Kidd-Gilchrist RPA auto patch (with piece of the name)

So I did so, so. The MKG brings a little value back (maybe $300?), but the other hits were terrible. I will post pics or a link when I can.

Could have been much worse, the RPA balanced out a weak veteran box. You can realistically get back $425 or so after fees. Not bad at $589 box and a shot at hitting something ridiculous.

MKG is what the 2nd rnd pick?
He is a decent rookie IMO and I think he will bring more then you think.
Do you have a pic?

I will post the Youtube link as soon as it is uploaded. It definitely could have been worse. I have not been high on this years rookie other than Kyrie, but when I saw some of those logo men I decided to pull the trigger. Much like my football break of NT I got about 50%, maybe a little more in return.

^^ I believe that's Chris' GF lol

the mgk was definitely a box saver, consider yourself lucky you didn't get one of the other 5x 'scrub' rpa's and an actual lottery pick

Yeah,m the MKG definitely makes it hurt a little less. Still dont think theres much more than $400 total value in that box, but we will see. It certainly could have been worse. I had no idea what I was in for, but everyone was cheering for her to bust open a few boxes on the live break. I didn't really care who does it, just wanted to see what was inside.

so you open boxes and expect that the box will be worth what you paid for or will give you 5k ?

My issue isn't that I didn't make 5K. My issue is that outside of the RPA it was an absolutely brutal break. I didn't hit anything I would save for my PC. Joe Johnson isn't a star, at least sale wise. And the dual rookie autos are filled with scrub players. Out of two years of rookies they could have been a bit more selective. I would like to see a retired/legend auto in each box, even if they aren't Larry Bird or Magic Johnson. I saw some nice Hakeem jersey autos that I would have been happy with, and I'm not a rockets fan. Getting 60%-65% back on a box these days isn't bad, but had I pulled a Kim English RPA instead, there's probably about $75 worth of sale in that box.
