Do not make the mistake of basing your break on hits alone. High end base sells very, very well at comc. You can easily get $1 to $10 for many of your cards not listed.

DO NOT SELL ANY CARDS AT AUCTION ON EBAY NOW!! You can BIN/OBO, sure, but auction is a terrible way to throw away money unless your player is in the postseason.

I am not sure what you guys were expecting out of this break. Average ROI on any Topps High End Product is about 40% of market prices. We actually did very, very well in this break.

Anyone getting into a break this expensive had better prepare for the worst. These are the same people that go to Vegas expecting to win, and then go home broke and pissed off, and then tell everyone how horrible a time they had. Sour Grapes.

I just didn't know that stat. I would have expected a better return from high end products, so that number surprised me. Still a fun break. Just crazy to think that collectively we lost around $4k because we opened the boxes

It seems like alot of people underestimate the value of non hits. Whether it be ebay, comc sportlots or other, the non hits will generally be where you see any return. I am no world class seller and usually come close to breaking even in these breaks, even without having a monster or multiple great hits. All it takes is a little time and effort to do so.

No, I wasn't bitching really. Take that tone for didactic because that is really how I meant it.

I promise, you can 99% of the time take me as not too serious. I talk to my group breaks as if I were talking to a group of friends at dinner. Can come across wrong in posts.

In the live breaks on ustream, you can ALWAYS count on me to be kidding. When I do get mad, I get quiet - happens rarely and usually from something truly insulting that someone posted in chat.

In the late night drinking game, all bets are off. I never get mad then anyway - just stupid drunk. I even sing and do tongue twisters!
