Default The Cup - 3 Box Case vs 6 Box Case

Does anybody know if they distribution of cards is different for a 3 box case vs a 6 box case. For example, can you get a 'Property Of' in a 3 box case like you can in a 6 box case?

Anything is possible........but with a 6 tin case you should get a case hit. With a 3 box 1/2 case its less likely.

I've opened my share of both and my big hits have come from the 6-box cases, but I did get a Gretzky Scripted Swatches /25 from a 3-Box.

With the amount of this stuff that you opened, you were bound to hit something big in the half case. Law of averages at work here, you could buy 5 full cases and get crap or you can buy 2 half cases and get amazing cards. It all evens out in the end.

But for a single case purchase of this product I would say that you would be better off buying a 6 box case, simply because the extra 3 boxes increase your chances of hitting something big.

I'd agree with Pskell here. There are no case hits in this. If you bought a 6 box case, it would be slightly cheaper than buying two 3 boxes cases. Added benefit is you can always stop (this is also a curse since you never know what the next box holds...joy or remorse). But you can always buy more, and flip the rest if you happen to hit a great hit early on (but then again...the famous, I'll ahead of the game, the rest is gravy concept plays into effect for the weak)

Oh and I'm weak

Same here. If I buy something, I'm gonna crack it even if I hit a great card in the first box/pack.

Clearly the six box case gives you a better chance, but yes thee were no set "guarantees" for this product as a case hit like ud has been doing lately. That said, I've actually done three cases and I was overall pretty happy with each one...no 1/1 (other than a plate), but each was good on its own.

We pulled a couple of 1/1's in our breaks though
