Default 1 box 10/11 National Treasures - Bust or Sell.

So I got a box of 10-11 National Treasures from the Thanksgiving Cornucopia Promo and I dont really do basketball.

Should I break it or try to sell? What kind of cards would I be looking for and what are the odds of breaking even? Losing $$$.

Thanks in advance.

Look in the Box Breaks section for basketball, I know there is some NT there. Or even check on Youtube.

I'd say sell it.

its a great box to win and very solid year for collecting too! i think selling would be the way to go since it sounds like you don't collect at all and you'd probably get in the ballpark of $600 bucks, but if you bust you are looking for jeremy lin, john wall, evan turner, demarcus cousins, greg monroe, derrick favors, paul george all bring in solid $$$ especially if you get a rookie patch auto!

I saw one of these listed for like $600+ yesterday. I'd never pay that, but some people might.
If you decide to sell you're looking at $500 or more I'd think. But not many people get the chance to open a super high-end box, so it depends how you feel. If you could use an injection of cash, sell it. If you want the excitement of opening it and possibly getting something big, then do it. You can always sell what you pull, it just might not get the same return...

Im still not sure, but I think it would be fun to open a high end box. Never had something that pricey. Even if its not great, I should be able to get my money back and then some...right?

I think, you could get most of the money back. I'd say bust it, because IMO busting > selling. This hobby, isn't all about money...just my 2 cents

Not at all, these guys are kidding around. I just opened one last week and pulled a kobe auto with 150 value and a bunch of junk. I busted as much if not more then anyone else at 400 a box and you could get crushed even at that price.

If you want to have fun, open it. If you're looking for value sell it.

I think you should sell it! There is a chance that the box is from the same case teambutterfield got his 5/5 John Wall RPA.

Wasnt Free. It was a promo where you bought a spot for $159. I managed to get a good box out of the 275 spots.

If you are only in it for $159, then you should definitely bust it.

You'll definitely get AT LEAST $159 out of it. There's a chance (slim) you can make $1000+ so what the hey?

Open it. For what you have into the box you could make a lot more money out of it.

sell it, take the $400 profit, and let someone else hit that $1K monster inside.
