Default Bit on the fence about getting '12 exquisite...would you at this price?

Was quoted $650 per box through my local LCS. He's only getting 2 cases (I guess that's max per shop). I know it's a crap shoot, but I plan on hanging onto these and flipping the sealed wax, not busting and selling singles.

Would you guys go in at this price? This is probably the limit I'd want to spend on boxes without putting myself in 'high risk' territory.

Sell them to me I'll buy them for $670 each, and then resell for $1,000 plus day of release.

Yep sure am. Thanks and definitely don't let that pass you by. It will be worth to bust at that price you wouldn't lose more than a few $100 at worst.

We need to show these LCS's that they cant be gouging prices on us.

Everyone that got a case should list it at a much lower price, then eventually the LCS would have to match them.

Wow, 2700 through an LCS, that's insane!

Thanks for the replies guys, went ahead and ordered the last case they had for pre-sell (other one went right away). Guess I'll get my feet a bit wet since I missed out on the retro train. Hope this does pan out for those of us that got in!

Sure will. Probably won't be breaking until Thursday or Friday at the latest. I want to wait until I got all my cases in first.
