Default I just made $120!

Walked into the LCS for a box of 2012 Platinum with cash in hand of $120. They have not received their shipment...left the store with $120 in hand.

Man, that feels gooooooooooooooooooooooood!

Other than the guy with the RG3 die cut auto, I think this may be the best Platinum break I've seen

Wish they would have been out of Platinum when I decided to pre-order a case of it. I'm going to have start drinking before I start opening.

Yeah, it's more of a "saved" rather than "made" but when I walked out I had a different feeling...hard to explain. Walking out of the LCS with CASH in your hand! Granted, it's YOUR cash, but cash nonetheless!

But, there is a card show this weekend...there goes the $120! lol

I have always looked forward to Platinum but damn, auto relics to 4 digits? No wonder athletes signatures look terrible on the high end stuff. Can you imagine signing /1000, /500, /250, /100, etc...Yes the product does look nice but the breaks and athletes and numbering just brutal. I don't see this years Platinum climbing to $160 per box like last year. And Panini Momentum another poo poo looking product. I am sticking to Bowman Chrome baseball and Chrome football and maybe NT, Exquisite and Five Star and dropping the rest. Until tomorrow anyway...

Do not, I repeat, do NOT buy Platinum. Just don't bother.

If you feel the need to waste $120 bucks, send it to me.

It's a new day but now I need suggestions.

Going to a card show...for $120 which 2011 box would you buy (Yes, I know I should buy singles instead but I'm a gambler!)? Looking for just one box of something.

Suggestions?
