I'm sure they held a significant number back for the release date on the 10th too.

Still going to be a better deal than what you're going to get on them from someone else if you're willing to put in the short time.

As long as you do not try to get lucky and bust open all of them, my experience is once I start to open one or two ( one has to do that). It take discipline to stop before all of them are open.

Good Luck

Had 6 in the cart at 10:15, checkout failed. A little bummed, but I would have pulled 6 Michael Egnew anyway. More money for singles.

I don't think this is like the baseball boxes when there was a pre-sell date and a release date. The only release date I've seen for these was 4/3. The ship date is 4/10.

If memory serves they did a morning release and an afternoon release of the baseball boxes on the official release date. More boxes might show up later today...

If TarjetasBéisbol can't cover you, I'd be willing to part with boxes for a fellow Skins fan. Also, much respect for your service. PM me if you need more.

whats stupid is they allow people to buy so many of these when they know they are going to sell out almost instantly and a large majority of the people buying so many are just going to flip for profit. they should atleast make a lower limit of how many you can buy in a 24 hour period so everyone can have some kind of chance at them..

it has nothing to do with participation jack........... its about a company that makes its money off people who collect for a hobby getting their cards to those people and not a bunch of guys trying to make a buck off of them. you dont think its ridiculous that someone tries to order 2 boxes within an hour of release for themselves and they cant get them because they are sold out to a bunch of guys that are going to resell them on ebay for twice what they just paid.. just more barriers being thrown up to the average collector.

So...this means your LCS? BO? Anyone else you want to put on your list? Maybe we can toss in people who trade cards at market value or sell their cards to buy more cards for their hobby?

Let me ask you a question. Isn't this what any card store does???

let me ask you this.. dont card stores have to establish a store front and pay all the costs associated to be able to get their cards at a price they can make a profit off resell essentially so they can pay for those costs and they are providing us with a nice service we can buy locally instead of having to go online and order and wait for our products or try to buy off jacks that put a newly released product on ebay for twice what they paid earlier that day.. and i guarantee you theres not an lcs out there that buys their cards and sells them for double the public retail on them on release day. so i dont know why you're even comparing the two.

If this bothers you, you are in the wrong hobby. Take a step back and look at the card industry today. I would venture to say there are few true collectors and more people out for profit. Everything Topps, Panini, UD, Leaf and others do is gear their products towards striking gold. Although I understand your frustration, it's the nature of the beast.
