Plus this are the hottest right now and will continue on until all the gold #$ are collected by true collectors. The prices is unbelievable on $100 box. What a ratio of earnings returns once you hit gold.
Yeah totally.... I'd love to buy a case for $_____ and pull a Tony Parker gold that I could sell for $120....

Hey man. You make money that's good. But if you loose then its on you. Never blame the manufacturer. Alot are more collectors than flippers...so good luck to your business. Enjoy the prizm.

WTF?
I'm not a buyer or a flipper or anything. I don't buy Panini and I don't buy UD with college uniforms. Your response made no sense, and you completely avoided my rather valid point in regards to YOUR post. You're so blindly in love with Panini it's actually very sad.

Paul, while I have no issues with you, you really do cross the line on the double standard to justify what you do.

You first complain about the product saying there is no money to be made. Then you go and flip prizm cards trying to make bank.

You then talk about how these crazy prices must be fake yet you are one of the guys listing a gold rose for $2000.

I dont get it.
Not Paul. Rose 1/10 MVP is not a chase card in this product, at least for now.

Hope collectors can get their goals met at fair prices.

You don't get it because that's not true.

My complaints were on the product from a COLLECTOR's standpoint.

Someone collecting to keep the cards in their collection. I don't think $120 is a fair price on the product given the value per-box.

I think it's FINE to have a product like this, but I think Panini is consistently producing products at $100 ++ MAPP, and it's hurting the average collector. It doesn't hurt someone like Alex who can drop $10k on cases, but it hurts the average, every-day collector who has a $100/week or $200/month budget to spend on cards for their collection.

That's a totally different mindset then what I do. I didn't buy any wax, to sell or flip. I think it's overpriced in wax form. Considering there are SO many cards in the set, and only the top 10 chase cards will get the box price back ... I don't think it's worth the gamble.



I'm just saying that if you, OJ, say that for collector's it's a great deal, I don't agree it is. Not all collectors have a high budget like some of the people on here. I think at $60-80 it's a good deal for collectors to buy.

My flip on the Rose was something I do, and I'd do over and over. Just like 90% of the people on here.

I like Panini as a company, and I do enjoy most of their products. But I think as the main company in the game, they don't put out enough lower-end products (at least recently) that regular collectors can afford. They're focused on putting out products that the high-end case breakers (like many of these new guys here on Blowout in the Box Breaks section) will foam at the mouth to open and pad Panini's pockets.

agreed.

to me, the most important thing is, the base refractors really look fantastic in hand

and somehow, panini really improved by leaps and bounds on the photography, its almost like topps produced this set.

But as always, the colation really SUCKS BIG TIME...
