Default LCS 2009 Elite Football Box...

Called zee chop.

Itching to bust Elite.

Well, my 1 shop closed up who had very good prices. I boycotted the other shop due to their extremely high prices.

So, I figured...let's give em a call, see if they can satisfy my urge.

Yes, it's in stock.

$129.95 per box


So I'd be in it for almost $140 after tax.


Yeah right. Screw that noise.

Ordered 4 from Blowout for the same price as about 3 from my LCS.

Anyone else's card shop have extremely high prices?

I mean at least kiss me before you f**k me.

I have 2 card shops that are about 3 miles apart. One shop is a total price gouge, the other cheaper but w/ less product on the shelves. Sucks...

good luck w/ the BO boxes!

Yeah, they are high around here and the nearest shop is 150 miles away. I think most of those guys buy from "wholesalers" and have more into them. I'm like you though I just order and wait....if it was close that would be one thing but.....that's not that close

The card shop that I like has them for $105 per box, but it's 45 minutes away. My other shop sells them for $120 and is closer.

I just order online most of the time. I've never gotten anything good out of buying from LCSs (call me superstitious).

my "2" shops...now down to 1 were a solid 45 minutes away as well. But I'll play the waiting game. I'm not very patient but I'm to the point where I'm not going to extremely overpay. I love to support shops and keep people in business, but that doesn't mean rape people on your prices. I'd pay $100 per. That would be no big deal. I understand you've gotta pay the electricity, the lease, etc. I'm a big fan of supporting local businesses, as we own one ourselves. But c'mon. At least be relatively close to market value.

But Blowout has to make a living too, so I always do my best to throw them a bone

I only have one shop in town. he adds a little more to the prices but i usually get a good deal. I pull better cards out of LCS boxes than I do when i order boxes online.

Grant ask Chazzy Chaz, not out of the question for our LCS to have $7 packs of gridiron.

I have 1 shop that only carries older WAX but their prices are seriously all over the place.. $170 for 07 Premier and $700 for 08 National treasures.. but then they have insane deals like $45 for 2004 Fleer Ultra (thought about buying all of these and selling them on ebay for $75-80) $35 for 07 Bowman Chrome etc

I have a couple of local dealers which are very very high, I usually buy from them once or twice a month, I try and support the LCS, but I travel about 50-60miles to clearwater to "wonderwater" when I really get the itch. The owner Perry is cool as they come, and 9 times out of 10 he is cheaper than Blowout. He also hosts in store breaks and recently started small breaks on collectors revolution, all around good dude. I still order a boat load form blowout though, i like to bust wax and Woderwater sells to alot of people in the tampa bay area so he sells out quick.
