I have a Jon Jones Ruby Auto 8/8 from MOT...at one time was gonna sell...but now i just cant bring myself to sell it cuz i know i wont get more than like $75 for it...
I'm with you 100%. I stopped collecting UFC cards for that reason. I hit a Dan Henderson auto relic in one of my boxes and would have kept it if it were a live card. But it was a redemption which means I'll be waiting for quite some time to get it. I figured if it's numbered like the other auto relic cards, I should be able to get one for under $20 once the card is live. The only card I really want is one of those meet Chael Sonnen cards. 10 randomly inserted cards get you a piece of training material signed by Chael and one grand prize nets you a meet and greet with him. That would be too cool. I saw one on eBay for $600 and am very hesitant to pick it up.

Randy Couture not in set?!?

Is Topps starting to exclude the HOFers from the new releases?

I am sure Dana and Randy's falling out, had a lot to do with him not being in the set. But me personally I am glad the legends, are not in every set, there are current fighters that don't have cards in each set already, adding guys that are retired, will make it so there are even less current fighters in the sets.

They should do a legends subset every few sets though, for the guys that do collect them.

I watched some more breaks on YouTube today and it really hit home to me. Relic autographs numbered to 200+ with a sticker to boot, single color relics, mat relics (please get rid of these already), and one, maybe two, on-card autographs per box. For a product that is $150 and up, that is not acceptable.

That was my spider ruby gear auto and the sale price was about what I expected.

You have to remember.. Spider has had a ruby gear auto in about 10 ufc releases.. They can't sell for 200 bucks.. There are just too many of them.

I have opened many cases of this product and while a lot of it is the same stuff that ko 10, 12 and 13 had.. The look of the triple threads is the best so far.. And the cases are full of low numbered stuff

It is not as bad as I thought it would be(which is not exactly a ringing endorsement.. Lol)

i was at my LCS today and thought about doing a box... then i remembered all of the same things you mentioned. it's just not worth it. better to just by the singles i want. let someone else take the hit busting the boxes.

Good call anytime I have bought boxes of UFC I get killed. Singles are the ticket.

I started looking through my UFC stuff and have decided to try to sell of all the autos I've collected except my Miesha Tate and Chael Sonnen ones. Stuff just isn't worth collecting anymore to me. I have about 60 so I think I'm just going to lot them up and sell them as a group.

I got about a 25% return on my case I opened. Cannot complain but at the same time nothing huge like you could get from Bowman.

Broke 2 boxes lost 150 on the break. I listed the cards and sold a few for a little over 100. The rest unsold and destined to sit in a drawer.

I don't see UFC Champions fairing well when that comes out.
