Default What Kind Of Return On A Prism Case At Current Price?

was thinking of purchasing a prism case and can get one for $1325. i would open and then sell the contents. is there good value in the cards if you DON'T hit a major gold prism?

Not in most cases unless you hit a pretty decent gold.

to be honest, the ROI is pretty brutal

i feel the rookie and star refs will up in price but it will take time

the auto checklist is also horrendous

u really would need to hit 2 solid golds to have a chance to break even

Stick to the case breaks and get lucky. I paid $250 for my slot. Ive sold my hits from the case team break for about $880 so far. I have about 20 team sets to move and 60 odd laker refractors. I could eaily hit $1k from the slot.

A couple of teams cant make you cash. Heat, Portland, Spurs, Lakers,

You just have to get lucky on golds and be able to make team sets. I was able to make 20 team sets (Lakers team is huge in the set with 20 cards). I came out with 40 odd refractors of which a few were kobe inserts. That helps.

But busting wax in general is high risk / high reward.

Ive bought cases multiple places and the results are quite different everywhere. The last 5 I got from Blowout (assuming they are from second wave) Had the following amount of golds: 5,2,1,2,1

Before those I had never gotten less than 3 in a case. Buying this stuff and hitting only 1 gold is a MAJOR disaster since you arent even sure to get 1 case hit type autograph

Thank you for the responses. I decided to steer clear of this and bought a prizm football case as well. I am sure that football won't be as huge as basketball was, but should be hot right after release!
