Default $1800 for Exquisite already?!?!

$1800 already for a 3 box case of 08/09 Exquisite!

will people really prebuy at this price?

even if you hit a Kobe or LeBron or Jordan Auto you still could lose money on a case.

lets hear everyones thoughts

lol Premier seems loaded now all of the sudden, I get my 2 rookie jersey auto cards one being a Rose and a 1/1 Muggsy auto as well as dual garnett/nowitzki patch in just a single box, if the Lopez has been Brook not Robin #d to 75 it would've been tremendous, but I swear I am getting the case hit boxes when I am buying single boxes, like the Lebron radiance, that had to be one of the 2 best boxes in the case right? lol

Yeah, it's going to be loaded big time from what I hear. Everyone should order up and bust as much as humanly possible. Take out a 2nd mortgage if you have too, whatever..it will be worth it. That's the word on the street.

where you shop at? wish I could get a free case!! looks like tons of awesome cards, but most autos that I sell go for about $500. We have to remember, not everybody is rich and can afford $1,800 cases. some collectors take all year to save that much!!

Actually I won a free case here on Blowout in their NCAA March Madness Promo. Blowoutcards is #1. Can't wait to rip this case.

I was considering buying a case of this but at that price even if they are loaded, what does each case/box guarantee. If each case doesn't yield atleast a LBJ, MJ, or KB, then we'd take a hugh loss at some point. It's still hard to believe UD's standards on the word "Loaded." Anyone hear any good info on this, or what's different from last years?

Even if you pulled a MJ out of one box, KB on next, and LBJ on the last, you would still loose money on the case. I dont see getting $600 average from each of them......

Remember guys that pricing fluctuates. If no one DOES BUY the cases at the current price (from any website or distributor) then case prices will drop. Simple as that.

Very well said.

Besides If this is UD's last hurrah for several years, wouldn't they overproduce this stuff and milk as much money from us as possible?

That seems to have been their business plan for a while now, why would it change?

you guys keep referencing mj and lebron, but exquisite has ALWAYS been about the rookie class. And this year's is loaded. This product will be VERY strong.

Tim you are very right. But the better rooks will be #'d to 99 making them a tough pull. Sure DRose multi RAPs should do well over 1k out of the gate. Some of the other rookies will be solid $300 or higher (depending on # of colors) sells also.

I cracked a case of exquisite last year. Without hitting any big time rooks or Lebron/MJ/Kobe I was still able to make a small profit (not worth the work and trouble chasing NPBers on fleabay).

the rooks alone will drive the wax prices though - that's the bottom line.

As for breaking it and making money, the more you break, the more likely you will lose your arse. Opening one case (or less) is the way to go, and hope you hit a big one. Buying multiple cases to resell is the other way to go.

Yeah it should drop in price. I'll most likely wait for that to happen.
