Default The Price of 11/12 The Cup in USA.

Just noticed the new pricing on Dave and Adam's Card World. Premium pricing for a 6 Box Case of 11/12 The Cup is now $2115.00 USD. We are so getting hosed in Canada.

Wow, that's insane. I'd never think about buying a case of the cup (WAY out of my price range!), but that's much more affordable than the $3300 my LCS has cases for.

Nice to see some collectors can get product at a reasonable price. By the way, here is a RNH I just received from Beckett.

I think it was just plain dirty greed that had the retailers set the initial price of the cup so high- it was readily available for $350-$400 for every year previously, no reason for anyone to need to purchase it at $500 plus. I resisted because I refused to pay such a high price, and the patience has paid off by saving me thousands of dollars. You decide what you are comfortable paying and stick to your rules, then no one can be blamed. Eventually, when they realized they couldn't sell anything, they were forced to drop prices- dont be a sucker to all the market manipulation.

Why don't you just have someone in the US buy a case for cheap, pay them the postage to send it to you and maybe add a small thank you payment for doing it?

I'm guessing the taxes beat you guys up.

Customs/duty charges on an item of that value would be killer - this method sounds good in theory but IF Customs decided to have some fun the buyer in Canada would get the ziggy good and hard.

In Canada we would just have to pay the HST of 13%. No duty because the cards are manufactured in North America. HST on $2200.00 USD would be $296.00. Still way cheaper than $3000 a case in Canada. Dave and Adam's Sale price shows how much a case is Wholesale to buy. I have heard dealers pay $269 a box or around $1650 or $1700 a 6 box case. Plain simple green on dealers part.

News Flash! I guess all the 6 Box cases are gone. Noe the 3 Box case for Premier is $1121.00 USD. Still a bargain.

My dealer showed me his wholesale for a 6 box case and its less then 269.. more along the lines of just about 200 DIRECT. That was last year and now that everyone has D$A prices anything after the first case is all aftermarket mark up bs.
