And not to get deeper...but upper deck signatures , ultimate and SPX could have redemptions that they won't fill..I bought a case of ultimate a few months ago and of course got 2 dice k redemptions, not worth much now but they were the big rookie in that product and upper deck told me to go scratch ...lol

I bought a box of SPx (2009 i think) about 2 years ago in Illinois. Pulled an evan longoria rc auto. was past the redemption deadline by about 6 months. Upper deck would not fill it. I've stayed away from the old SPx packs since ( even though i pulled some good swtaches like a dual jersey randy johnson 3 color)

they should just bring back the old promos where you buy a product and get a team. None is this random product where you dont know what you are getting and odds are you will be getting a 60 dollar box of cr*p

I also think the NCAA promo tapped out a lot of people. There was a lot of money tossed into those.

Not bad actually. 40% to hit Triple or better
Triple is roughly break even though.


Just the first 4 I grabbed:
2013 Panini America's Pastime Baseball Hobby Box (TRIPLE) $149.95
2013 Historic Autographs Originals (1933) Baseball Box (TRIPLE) $149.95
2008 Topps Triple Threads Baseball Hobby Box (TRIPLE) $189.95
2013 Bowman Baseball Jumbo (HTA) Box (TRIPLE) $169.95

Maybe say 99/150 (67%) are <$0. So about 33% are +$0 or better.


I'm still considering it because these promos are fun but I think the reason it's slower to fill is timing with lots of people buying into the NCAA promo and/or buying Heritage/Museum. I do like that they label the "tricks" and "treats" though.

I agree. Was hoping they would bring this back this year. I had the Cardinals thhe year they won the Series. Definitely can give you a rooting interest when your favorite team is not in playoffs.

soooo...this. I really thought ti would fill by this weekend...Now what BO?
do we wait for this like redemptions?
(or.....you could be really cool and cut the "singles" out of the list and RANDOM! yeehah!)

by the way, I DO understand that the "singles" are the ones you need to clear out...

Seems a lot of people would like the random team one they offered a few years ago. Would be nice if they listened.

I would even join this one if they offered gift cards in replacements of the cases that are the "big prizes". Nothing of any interest in that group even if you got lucky and got one.

I am realizing only now (I am new at this kind of thing) that I should not have ordered several hobby boxes at the same time as placing this order.
I am assuming they will be coming whenever my "prize" is assigned and sent...
woops.
see you in like a month

Maybe some of the NCAA jackpot winners will jump in now! It is time for them to DOUBLE DOWN on those winnings!

Maybe Blowout should cut down on the spots. They've been selling one or two a day for the past week. At this rate, it's going to be a May Day Promo.

where did the main page advertisement for the opening day promo go ? no where on the main page now. With 101 of 150 slots filled, less advertisement will take even longer, you think ?
