Default Wow, Ultimate's gotten expensive

It launched at 75-80 per box, but now if you can find it its usually going for 90-100+ per. Damn, not a good value at that price, I was looking at picking up another case too.

The prices are in line with what baseball and football did. I stopped by my lcs today but they haven't gotten it in yet. Although, I'll probably just wait for The Cup.

It wont be that good for the Cup either, youre better off saving your money, getting singles on the cheap, wait for the market to turn around, wait for this class to develop some more, and flip in about 2-3 years.
