Default FAMILY GUY - case pricing wayyyy off?

SO, I see not much of Family Guy has been busted. Is this because with only 3-4 Sketches per box, averaging about $40-50 per sale, at $800 per case, you're going to need to make up $600+ in autographs and parallel cards?

I really don't like the SRP on this product, especially with the sketch cards as unimpressive as they are. The Sketch market for family guy died a long time ago, and without any big hit, $800 seems to be a TON to pay. Now if Seth McFarlane was on the auto checklist, $800 would make sense!

What are your guys thoughts? I really miss the old Family Guy Season 1&2 at $30 per box, with a sketch and auto in every box!

It's certainly a reason the product wasn't an immediate sell out. The pack out wasn't very attractive to even a casual non-sports collector.
Will 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 be the year Panini finds Marvin Harrison & Marcus Allen to sign their NFL's Greatest Signatures cards?

i bought the gf and her son a box to open, even though they enjoyed reading all the cards, being a collector, i was really disappointed with the cards and the parallels left a ton to be desired. for like $60 a box with a brian tochi auto and 2 parallels that were lack-luster? besides all that, IMO, garbage pail kids is more interesting, and inventive too.

at least there were no puzzle pieces and bubble gum. we did not get a sketch, are they really 3 per box?
the fact that we exist, in a universe of sheer randomness, is scientific proof that there are aliens.
we are the aliens.
i can say that with 100% accuracy.

You get 4 sketch cards per case (1 in 3 boxes).
