Default Open the box or sell it?

Someone is going to give me a box of 2010 Treasures. Would you open it or sell it?

They're just giving it to you? If that's the case I'd say if you don't need the money enjoy the break and open it. I've actually had the chance to open a free box or two myself and it's so much more fun because there is no pressure to make back you money.

It sounds like you would feel more comfortable with selling, $350 is still a nice freebie

If they're giving it to you...thats an open and say thank you. I may resell the contents, I would not resell it sealed. In my mind big difference here.

You should open it though and enjoy it.
If you sell it, I guarantee karma will bite ya and the buyer will pull a sweet Bradford auto and Montana auto.

I imagine most of your responses will be to open it, because most of us have a sickness and must see what is inside a box! I still can't fathom people who buy cases and sit on them for years. You would have to lock them up from me and throw away the key to keep me from opening them...

I understand, my wife asked me why do people buy such expensive boxes and I told her it's like a drug opening the packs to see if you hit the jackpot
