Default Still trying to figure this out... Chrome FB

Guys need some help on chrome FB. I have a case coming more than likely tuesday of next week. Heres the scenario, Im ripping and Flipping. I will keep all the box toppers sealed. I will sell rookie autos seperatley, refractors seperatley and rookies by player lot, and singles by team lot? Is this the best way to break it down. Would this be a wise product to pick up a 2nd case of at 660? Your thoughts are more than welcome. PM me if you have any advice. I got my butt handed to me on 06 chrome I want revenge this year!

Well, I preordered a case at around that price and am wishing I'd gotten more than one. I'm worried about having the willpower not to open it, lol. I figure it'll be better to sell it sealed in a couple months.

Yeah, I know the feeling. I bought a pair of cases for $1300 and I'm tempted to let them lay for now. Just don't think I have the will power either!!

No my local in town. I preordered back in July, he told me that he has another one available because he is not able to reach the other person.

If he is offering it to you for $660, I would jump all over it if I were you. Hell, worst comes to worse sell it sealed for $750 and make a guaranteed $90 profit.

Not very! I believe they are numbered to 25 and there are only 30 players.

if only it worked that way on ebay. $750 sale has at least $45 in fees, plus it's hard to compete with the big boys without losing your ass on shipping.

Well yea, I understand that, I was just trying to say that it can be sold at a profit for that price.

As far as your question, I do believe that the way you laid it out is the best way to sell this. Possibly make sets before you start to put them into player/team lots for the vets.
just because Chris has them at $774 doesn't mean everyone does. i'm picking up 5 cases @ $54/box... and i didn't have to preorder, prepay or put a deposit down.........


and BTW, selling sets is the WORST way to do Topps Chrome FB.

I think that is a terrible idea personally. Sticking with the sets, wont be to long before Ebay cracks down on that.

If you sell it right you should make money. Toppers sealed, autos separate, RC lots, star player or team lots.

Tell her she can buy a couple new pairs of shoes and a purse if she lets you get the second case

Also tell her that you will be able to sell it for a profit, even if that is not the case.
