about $669.99 w/ $3.00 s/h. ;p

congrats on the awesome pull. and yeah, it's definitely a top 5 pull. i'd say it's right up there next to the Overeem (before roid test), Jon Bones, and Arianny 1/1's.

he's probably the best lightweight in the world not fighting in the UFC and part of the same camp that produces the Diaz brothers and Jake Shields. dare i say if he were to go to the UFC he'd be lightweight champ.

^I don't think he'd beat ben, though.. The lightweight division is lucky BJ isn't still there either! Haha.. I'll give gilbert #2 lightweight in the world right now.. Met the guy too, nicest guy ever.. Even let me and my son take a pic wit him and his strikeforce belt.. He's good, thought he'd be able to beat edgar, but ben did the job.. I really don't think melendez would beat ben.. The only LW I think would be able to beat ben henderson is Bj penn.. Unfortunately I don't see him returning to 155 anytime soon

OK Hammock, thanks. The previous 7 have sold for around $160 each. That's called research. I would extend to you the same courtesy. You should've done some research before posting that photo of yourself in a pink banana hammock.

Winning!

Actually right now I'd think in the 130 low-175 high range sounds about right (without looking up ebay prices).. I probably would've kept it though.

Spent about $400 that day and had to recoup some money. I rarely do UFC products but it was an "I jump, you jump" with a buddy of mine at the shop.

do you know anything about MMA? i saw your break and you also hit a Jon Jones buyback and an Arianny 1/1 plate auto right? add those and the Melendez and I'd be super stoked about that break.

Yes, I know about MMA!!! I also know that the secondary market does not favor Metal right now. The Jones Buy Back is selling in the $30-40 range. I am hoping Arianny brings in some money and I did VERY well with teh Melendez.
I preordered my case in February and have $1450 invested in it. I was not able to get my case until yesterday due to Medical issues from the shop I was dealing with. That $1450 case would cost about $1000 now!! I figured I would have as good a chance at breaking for that much as I would losing $400-500 on a sealed case.
I am not saying I did bad, I am saying besides the 3 big cards there was hardly anything low numbered.

Do you know anything about cards? All Leaf stuff, and I mean ALL, rapidly drops in price almost immediately after release.

Metal Draft, Golf, UFC, etc. All of them are barely worth the paper their printed on. They look nice, don't sell for sh!t.

If he hadn't hit the Melendez, he could have been looking at a $1000 loss on that case.

You are correct on Most. Not golf though. Golf is a great product and singles are rising in price as more people know that it is out.
