Default Black worth the $$?

Contemplating a case of Black. Not a hugh basketball guy but it seems pretty decent for resale. Is it worth the price tag?

ive seen alot of cases of black being opened, and 8/10 times it is totally worth it, i would totally buy a case if i had the money right, but its really up to you...

I doubt it as this point. I would think most of the hype on black is gone and a few bad boxes would really put your head in the ringer when you look at what your average per card price needs to be to get back to even.

that is also very true, but what he should do is buy a couple boxes at a time, if he gets something nice then buy a couple more ... like i said its completly up 2 him...

yeah, you open three boxes and get 6 mediocre autos, you've already lost $400(that's assuming you can get $50 per card.....)

*this isn't even a worst case scenario

Not worth it, especially now since most of the good stuff is already found.

Your chances are slim and I am sure you will see craploads of redemptions in any newer black stuff

Obviously I cannot say what you're looking for, but you're almost better off buying a few cards you really like out of the set on the bay than taking your chances on a case

Oh...that's not what I really wanted to hear! Looking at ended auctions there's some nice $$ to be made. I'm a bit of gambler so we'll try anyway. If I start getting smoked...selling of the boxes will do just fine.
