Costs - 50 660-count boxes - $24.00
Shipping - 16 medium flat rate boxes - $10.85 x 16 = $173.60
Paypal fees - 3.9% (international payment) + $0.40 = $31.60

Total fees = $229.20

Total $$ for break = $570.80

Thoughts?

We could probably get more on eBay, but we would have an unknown buyer and eBay fees.
Are you sure there are rookie chrome cards? Per the Blowout description on this product:

Each pack contains three (3) '12 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Bowman Draft Picks cards; two (2) Bowman Rookie cards and two (2) Bowman Chrome Draft Picks cards.


I don't see any rookie chrome cards there. Theoretically, if there are no rookie chrome, would the base just be the prospect base then, and the rookie slots get the rookie base?

If you scroll down the information page Uber ... you'll see a section for "Bowman Chrome RC Cards" (Although it's unclear how they will be inserted ... so anyones best guess pre draft how man you should expect in 20 cases)

ROOKIE CARDS
Rookie Chrome Cards (55 subjects):
- Refractor numbered to 300.
- Blue Refractor numbered to 250.
- Gold Refractor numbered to 50.
- Orange Refractor numbered to 25.
- Red Refractor numbered to 5.
- Superfractor Parallel numbered 1/1.
- Printing Plates numbered 1/1.

You can stock pile the base with as many selections as you want ... and have tangible goods rather than virtual ones. (I'm trying to figure out the real value of these codes ... I think $2 might be ambitious)

We'll see where they're drafted!
However it is not unlocking the prospects that give the codes their value. It is the possibility of unlocking blue wave packs that may have autos. I am pretty sure that there are plenty of people that would get more that one code slot if given the opportunity.

The rules are changed half way thru, and I'm suppose to sell my slots?

I'd gladly give up 20 of my 30 picks right now, to get those prospect base cards.

I'm sorry, I won't do this here.

Whatever is best for Houdini is best for me.

I will not beat up on other peoples ideas here in the threads.

All 5 of my picks for trade to move up in to the top 5 (13 is my highest).

I'd still also consider completely selling out of the break for the right price.

I know that makes it look bad, but this is how the pack should play out:

2 rookie paper base - 1 may be a paper parallel or plate.
2 chrome - usually 1 prospect and 1 rookie (With there less rookies this year, this may be changed to a rookie chrome every other pack)
3 prospects paper base - 1 may be a paper parallel or plate

In the past, a chrome auto or parallel may have replaced the rookie chrome card in a few packs.

13, 95, 122, 287, 362

i rarely weigh in on things but i would think a few things, 20 cases of base cards is worth, in my opinion a ton more then $800... If we are thinking we can get $3-4 per code and have 900 codes why not have the base slots be available to draft, the codes be sold, pick up 4-5 more cases, rinse and repeat? That way the base cards stay in the draft and we get 25 or so cases for the "price" of 20... it seems insane to do it the other way IMHO...

I think the main problem with that is finding a trust worthy buyer for the 900+ codes

Ok, I am looking over the offers. They are a little different so I have to run the numbers.

Simply because I feel safer selling the base on here to a break member than trying to sell 960 codes on eBay and praying that 44 days later I don't get a false Paypal claim.

You can call it insane, but you aren't the guy on the hook either.
