Default Would you rather...?

I wanna buy a box of 10/11 prestige, just don't really know whether it'd be smarter to get from BO cards or from my LCS on the day of release.

LCS is more expensive, but I'd probably make more reselling on eBay because I'd be amongst the first to list the new hot rookie class for sale.

So what do you guys think??

Ya I know BO is cheaper, but I would have to wait until the Tuesday after release (5 business days) to get the box, so idk if the eBay market will have sorta calmed down on the prestige cards by then.

i think it depends on the product. like if it's something you can't wait for (which is what it sounds like for the Prestige) then you ought to buy from LCS. i pre-ordered NT like 2 months in advance b/c the price was seriously a big difference (since the box is hundreds of dollars, even 10% difference would be $30+), but for something like prestige that'll probably go for 90 or so, I'd say go with LCS. at least that's what I am planning to do myself with prestige

I don't have an option of going with a LCS since I don't have a LCS anywhere close and I save money from BO - so BO for me is the way to go and you won't have to wait that much longer and save money

Get it from BO and just make it 2 day shipping. It will cost like $10 more.. Still cheaper than LCS.

uhhh i don't know how expensive yall's LCS is, but $10 extra shipping for a box like Prestige (any box between 65-115) would make it more expensive than my LCS... and I'd have to wait the 2 days... but definitely do the pre-order if your LCS is ripping you off that much!!

Well I'm not sure for prestige but for products like Certified, Limited, Absolute, Timeless treasures last year, they were about 20 bucks more expensive on average for me.
