With all these major pulls the value of all this is gonna plummet. I've already seen a bunch of good deals on eBay and have passed over them

Yep. That was my main gripe about UD putting Alien on e-packs months after release. And now that Marvel is sold out, Alien is getting bought a lot more on the website because no one cares about their junk hockey products.

This "new" product being introduced like a tsunami wave is going to completely change pricing on this product much lower. If I paid $200 for a Lance a couple of months after release because there were none on the market, I would be upset to put it nicely. Because some collector did just that. Or the Harry Deans for the same reason.

I opened more because I'm a junkie. I am officially done now though. I got skunked other than a Bill Paxton auto and this:



~5 boxes. 2 artist autos, 1 plate, kash auto, Ross auto.

Neat!

I think we are mainly just hearing success stories with this stuff. I am one box and probably 15 packs deep and have hit a meh sketch, a plate, and a Dourdan auto.

Showing your true colors here dude. Who cares who pulls what? Most of us do this for fun. I have absolutely lost on these breaks, but I had fun in the process.

I like to wait a while after hitting something before buying any other packs.
Just woke up and ordered 2 packs..

hit an auto. not a big one like some of the others i've pulled but still a hit!
Only 2 packs & an auto is cool either way.

Absolutely. That's the way it is with breaks, though. Most people who have "meh" breaks don't post them. I try to, but then I get PMs telling me to not waste people's time (for the record: not on Blowout, and not on any other forum where I use this username). So we get a much rosier picture of how these pulls go than is probably true for the majority of folks.

I broke down and opened 5 more packs, taking me to 9 total. Got a Cynthia Scott auto. When you go, "One auto out of 9 packs," that's not bad. I'd be overjoyed if I'd pulled a Henriksen, Weaver, Paxton, etc. out of 9 packs. I'm happy for the folks who pulled those folks, but I need to keep my credit card away from UD. I'm one of those who really needs to just buy singles.

If you've been paying at all attention to any non-sports threads for over a year, some non-sports collectors dislike the fact that gambling sports breakers have entered our hobby. Look at the glut that is now Star Wars, and feel free to read any of the million star wars threads pertaining to this, starting 18 mo's ago.

If you're a true collector, you should be thrilled that more people are opening product and the prices of the cards that apparently only you are allowed to collect are dropping. Maybe you should call Topps and complain about the products they're pumping out or call Upper Deck and complain about the accessibility of their products on epack. Complaining about the people who are pulling the nice cards and hoping they lose money is ridiculous. Not everyone opening these epacks are doing it to turn a profit.

Just like a rising tide raises all ships, a tide that lowers does the same. A lower and less healthy market will eventually drive away the collectors and money from segments of the hobby.

I don't think anyone wants to see their prized cards have less and less value over time.

Cujo's frustration stems from people who don't really know anything about the product and in the process harming the value of those cards by selling them on the open market far below their value.

I just looked and now there are only 8 quads available. 2 have been claimed at this point. So the answer is yes, UD will subtract the claimed out of the original 10 available.

Yeah, I've busted a lot of packs and my hits have been pretty terrible except for one. I hit the Holm in my first three packs and everything after was pretty much crap (a box plus another box worth of packs). Pulled a Kash auto and dual auto of Scott/Ross. I gave up on packs of Alien awhile ago to Cujo's chagrin. haha I have zero luck with this product outside of the Holm right off jump. Plus I had already acquired most of the autographs well before this e-pack "stuff".

Hey Guys, so I'm having to rebuild for the quad. If ANYONE has extra base and/or red foils, I have plenty of Marvel and Alien dog tags for trade (I do trade hits for Red Foils if enough of them). VERY much appreciate it.

I'm still hoping UD sees what has happened, and will explain in time.

And 110% on board with what Carr stated.
