Chris still has no price and seems to be only 1 or 2 sellers on the bay with it. Seems to be around 180-90. I was going to pick up a couple of boxes locally but with the tax over $200.00 ea, don't want to take the chance right now

Bet after the break #2 may fill up

Damn...missed that. Guess it probably isn't going to happen. I'll still email him and see what he can do for us. You never know (probably too much wishful thinking though)

My shop had them at $200 a box on day one, so I passed. At the $158 BO had them for I considered it but passed to spend more on Sterling and Contenders football.

Possibly. Just got home from work about 30 min ago and no UPS yet. Waiting to hear back from Chris with the tracking number on it. I will let you guys know as soon as I hear something.

Also, I'm going to see what he can do for a case price on a second one now that they have them in stock. So if anyone else might want to jump in on the second case it is possible. It will probably be in the $45 range per slot.

At $45 per slot still can get 4 slots for less than a box.

Just got an email back from Chris. Another kick to the junk on the break. He said that the case was just shipped today He will send me the tracking info when he gets it...

Got the price back for a second case, best price he could do would put the slots at $50 each.

Ouch. Double kick to the junk. Guess we'll just have to wait a few more days, but I'm definately out for the 2nd case.

Between shipping delays and release date changes Dec was not the month for breaks

$50., o.k. then 3 slots for less than a box, at this rate next week will be 1 slot for less than a box

You can take me off the list for the 2nd case also....For $50 I'd rather buy a box of DPP. Sorry.....

just shipped today is a sad story.......oh well looks like a New Years eve break unless you are in the one day range......

The cards are very nice but that increase in price is unbelievable..... Hard to believe those cases flew off all distributors shelves with this economy. Maybe the economy is not as bad as our media makes it out to be, or maybe all us collectors are just crazy....

I guess I backed the wrong pony by going with Sterling. I almost ordered a case of Prime Cuts along with it last week; oh well. I believe a big part of it is due to the wonky release date. I think the street date was the 26th. However, UPS was only picking up/moving air stuff at the end of the week. I know my local lcs still didn't get it. Places will have stuff arriving for orders placed early on. Luckily, my lcs won't jack up the price because of that.

I was originally told that the case would be shipped last Monday from IL. Not exactly sure what happened there. My only guess is that the cases were shipped from IL to BO, who in turn shipped them to customers. But I'm really in the dark on this one. Really itching to rip into this thing and see what kind of goodies it holds Just hoping that I get it and get everything out to you guys before the market corrects itself on this product.

Yeah...it is a little frustrating that it would take us this long to get our case considering how many others have gotten theirs. Hopefully people don't slow up on buying this stuff up before we get ours cracked.

Seen a bunch on the bay going 160-170 but just could not do it. 1 I don't know the seller, 2 has the same SECRET bidder ID bidding all his auctions up and never winning, 3 he is now changing his auctions to private so you can not even see SECRET bidder IDs
Not saying he is doing anything but for $170 a box I am not taking the chance.

Ya! This would have been my 1st in all the years on the bay. Guess I will stick to BO and one in state shop I go with for one day delivery (only prob 7.75% TAXES for local).

Wow, Chris just raised it again $225.00.

Here is the tracking number.

1z2643440310258678

It doesn't have an estimated time of delivery, so I'm not sure when this is going to go down. I bought a box of 07 LL yesterday that shipped today that is going to get here on Friday Guess we will find out as the tracking info updates.

I think all shipping is whacked right now. I ordered 300 bubble envelopes that were shipped DHL from Cali-Fornia on the 19th.. I still don't have them.
