Default Panini redemption packs break and question...

I wanted to get in on some of the Panini redemption packs, so I bought a box off of ther Panini store of 2012 Donruss Elite Football for $120. I also got 6 redemption packs and a Rated Rookie t-shirt.

First my question, then my break...

I know at the National, panini made you open the box to get your redemption packs, however, if you order the boxes online, the box is sealed...Has anyone bought boxes, strictly with the intent to sell the boxes, and keep the redemption packs? Obviously, you'de be selling the boxes at a loss, but I think it would be worth doing...for instance, recent ebay sales of 2012 elite football is about $115 dlvd...even if you lose 13-15% due to fees, you still will get about $99...so net is that you lost $21, but you have the potential to make it up in your redemption packs...almost like buying the redemption packs for $3.50 each

Anyway, just a thought, I'm going to bust my box anyway since I haven't done any football yet this year...

redemption pack #1
jeter card, courtney upshaw, decoy

redemption pack #2
tom brady, andrew luck

Redemption pack #3
Andrew Luck card #169/499
Thomas Robinson card #414/499

Redemption pack #4
Kevin Durant
Michael Floyd Towel card
Redemption pack #5
Bo jackson legends
Michael Jackson king of pop #4/5

redemption pack #6
Peyton manning
kyrie irving #73/499

definately think I have my $21 made back....hmmmmm

Yeah very nice packs for only 6.

I did this with the black friday packs. I ordered 48 boxes, Sold 24 boxes and all of the packs, Ended up busting a 24 box master case for $600... And I hit a derrick thomas 1/1 shield that sold for $500, so I got 95 hits for $100

Doesn't always work out that way though, no clue what these packs are pulling but I was getting $10 a pack from mine.

These packs were awesome! So much value in them. I busted so much at the National because you had the chance of hitting $500+ hits and so many hits worth 20-100. If you check my completed auctions you can see I did really well . Panini should be proud of how well they did with this promotion!

Yea did a lot of 1 day auctions...I was at the show weds-sat so I would do 1 day auctions as I got the cards. The value on most cards have gone down slightly from last week but most settled at some nice prices. I would get them on asap though because these promotional cards like most cards decrease in value over time.

If i would have done it right i could have made a killing with my 6 packs. Im not sure how i got the good packs. I got a andrew luck hat i sold for 16 a matt stafford eli manning for 15 aj green signed picture that someone offered me 50 for but i declined. Plus i still 3 5/5 cards for the packs. Took a beating on the elite box so it didnt pan out good.
