Star Wars Galaxy 7 Case Break (1 of 2)
 
First case arrived today, wasted no time in breaking it down. Nothing of note aside from the sketches, which were are below. Started out kind of ehhh ... with the first two I opened:

Not terrible, but I wasn't exactly getting the warm tinglies after my first two boxes. Then I got these:

[B]Kyle Babbitt[/B]

I like 3 and 4 better, but while 50% color and halfway through case, I'm not super thrilled, and starting to think maybe I should have just dropped $500 on scratch tickets. Next two turned around my case:

I felt a [U]LOT[/U] better now, so I went to my last two and they were pretty good:

[B]Lee Bradley[/B] 1 of 2 Puzzle, or just a half-face profile? No notation anywhere on the card.

All in all not a bad first case, hoping for the same or better luck when the other case arrives, and would obviously like some other nice find like a printing plate but not holding my breath!

Very cool sketches. The Rancor and Count Dooku are tops. Good pulls! How much did the cases set you back, if you don't mind my asking?

Tim 04-12-2012 01:58 PM

ouch there goes $300.00. sorry man.

price
 
This is one of those posts where I'm going to sit with my finger on the post button wondering if I should hit send, mostly because I am sure that inevitably someone will tell me I could have found it cheaper somewhere else.

Worked out to just under $78 a box all in with shipping for the two cases. An expensive gamble for sure, but also kind of fun. Kind of a sickness too I suppose, haha.

It helps that the set is always so nice with these, though. Set building complements the hits and eases the pain slightly if you come up empty-handed.

yeah that was not a great case. at least you weren't shorted an auto.

Koppper 04-12-2012 04:51 PM

Ya tough break, but thanks for the post at least you showed us most people just wouldn't post it you know!! Good luck on the second, did you get them from blowout? I saw their was 3 left on special and then I looked the next day and they were gone, I almost jumped on one.

I like the Katie Glasheen if it's for sale. :)

I saw a guy lose tons more tonite at the poker tables, so at least he has something to show for it lol. Not a bad case imo, of course I am a newb still. :D

I break 20 cases of Galaxy every year, and trust me, that was a BAD case.:cool:

Well I like the Sketch of Lee, and remember its only a bad case if you bought it just to turn a profit! And if so why buy?

kyle1707 04-13-2012 10:09 AM

I have broke a lot over last 3 years ...

Product was pretty bad this year... IMO

I would not pay 50 dollars for boxes...

its rough...

They need to go to 2 sketches a box and printing plate per case

But then you dilute the market. I think last year was the exception to the rule.

If people know that they are getting 2 Sketches and a Printing plate - secondary market goes to $100+ out the gate. However, for you an me, that's fantastic! :D

Hopefully everyone who got their asses handed to them this year from G7, decides to sit out on G8. :devil:

At least his Big Bang Theory case made up for it then.

I guess it's all in perspective. I agree that G6 was a lot better than this series.

I like the Erik Maell rancor sketch. I may be interested if it's available.
