Default Anyone Breaking Co-Signers?

I haven't seen anyone bust this stuff either at my lcs or on these boards. Anyone know if this stuff is worth it or is it garbage?

Every year this stuff is garbage so I dont think this year will be an exception. I would stay from this product if you can and just pick up the singles you want.

It never seems to be a good break for someone that rips and sells. May be a for someone that just collects (is there anyone out there that still does that?) it might be OK. Since I list and sell I won't get any.

I broke a case of Co-Signers that I bought from Blowout Cards. Got a Rose, Beasley, and Mayo Triple Auto card. Got a Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul dual auto card. Those were two great hits for me. (Pics on Ebay). I have them priced a little high on EBay, but don't care if I sell them or not. I would love to keep them. I put everything up on EBay and things are slow right now. Not to many people biting at my Buy it Now prices, not like when I list baseball cards (those go quick).

I like the product. Getting a dual auto and a rookie auto in every box for $70/box is not a bad deal. Plus, you get a lot of rookie cards and a lot of parallel cards.

We'll see how I end up doing, but it was a fun break over the Thanksgiving holiday. My 8 year old son and me had a lot of fun. He opened the Triple Auto and I opened the Dual Auto. So we are having a contest to see which one goes for more. I am a bad parent getting him addicted to opening cards already!

I bought one pack and am sorry I bought that much. Horrible product.

I bought one box from blowout when it first came out. The entire box was depressing up until the last 3 packs that I had left to open. Thus finding a ROSE, BEASLEY, & MAYO Tri signers card #18/36!

It was the Card Gods working their magic on you. They knew you had been away from collecting for a long time, say 10 years, and needed a hook to reel you back into the hobby. I'm guessing it worked very well with that card! Nice pull.

Indeed, thanks! I think it was a sign, and it definitely got me hooked again.

This stuff is usually garbage unless you hit big like the cards mentioned. I opended 3 packs from a fresh box and got both auto's. A Javale McGee RC Auto and Dual Auto of TJ Ford/Jarrett Jack. I think both auto's are in the first two packs.

they sell this at Target by packs. Do they still do the auto and dual auto guarantee for retail boxes?

The odds are MUCH higher for retail.

Is your triple auto Rose,Beasley, & Mayo card #19/36 or #29/36? I seen those two on ebay about 2 weeks ago I recall.

I broke one box and got the case hit of Augustin, Bayless, Gordon to 36. Guess I can't complain since it was a 20-1 shot. Also got a McGee auto.

I think it is a fun product, but I certainly wouldn't buy it to sell it.

I have a question if anyone can answer it. If you look at the above image of my Tri Signers card that I posted, I've found other Tri Signers cards on ebay that have "black" on the top and bottom of the card where mine is a silver/platinum color on the top and bottom. What is the difference of the two?

Wow! I just checked the back of the wrapper from a pack out of the 08-09 Co-Signers box and the odds for a Tri-Signers triple autograph is 1:227 and there's a Tri-Signers Triple Autograph Hyper Platinum Parallel 1:7,500!!! WOAAHHH! So I'm guessing mine is the Hyper Platinum parallel then. Judging from the pic I posted would you agree?

I know I may be a bit repetitive on this card, but would it be worth it to send this in to BGS to get it graded??? Everyone's opinion is appreciated!

it could be if it grades well. from what i see you would get a 10 for the auto for sure. centering on the front looks good also. corners and edges cant tell to much from the pic but remember the also look on the back for all 4 categories when grading also.

another thing you could do is let them know if it doesnt grade to a 9.5 or whatever you would be happy with to just authenticate it but some are turned off by that.

then also some people hate graded cards but me personally i do it for all my auto pc cards
