These just hit, what $235 on Blowout? WTF is going on here? Thank God my girlfriend got me two for my birthday at the beginning of the month when they were only $90. This has to be one of the craziest things I have seen during my time collecting cards. Makes me wanna snag up all the Big Bang Theory I can find.

Interesting that the seller has "only 2 boxes left" yet sold the two boxes to a single buyer at $275ea while $199 boxes are still listed. Oh yeah, the same seller listed 2 "more" boxes up right after those ended.

A store by me said they may be getting a case in after ordering it a while ago. I wonder how much he'll be charging if he ever gets them in. Anything under $150 and I'll be his Huckleberry.

I just listed my set, minus the Autos, for $2000 OBO.

Binder, Set, both insert sets, all 5 Promos, and 18 card Wardrobe set.

I don't want to sell but I am curious as to what kind of offers I'll get.

Interesting idea... I'm eager to see what people are willing to pay for that.

Best of luck! I bet if you included the Sheriff Patch it would easily sell for the 2K!

I agree but I don't want to sell the set, more just interested in what people would pay.

Ok, I just got a Walking Dead 24 pack box for $89.00... my hobby shop came through for me yet again.

Dilemma... do I open the box? I still need 7 of the autos... but should I resell it or do I crack that baby open and hope to get one of my needs?

I'm really not sure what to do here.

I would sell it and then buy what autos you need...there are no autos going for $200+ right now so you will make a profit and it will help you make your set! You may even be able to buy 2-3 autos (with the profit) depending on who you need.

I'm really torn on this... I'd love to crack one open and get a Rick patch... but I know the chances of that are slim.

However with the dwindling availability of these I mean what can we really expect? I mean someone is going to find some of the remaining patches it's just a matter of time.

I guess I'm weighing my options of opening the case or doing what you mentioned... I'd love to be able to fill in some of the gaps with my auto set.

It all depends on how much of a gambler you are. I recently opened two boxes with no big hits, but I just had to know what was in them. If you sell it for $180-200, you could pick up a few of your auto needs. So it all depends on if you want to be a risk taker or play it safe.

Yeah you've all guided me where I was thinking of going with it.

Unless I pull an M2, M11 or Reedus auto I really don't stand a chance on making what I potentially could on the sealed case separately.

Update:

Had my girlfriend pick up my 'box.'

Turns out I'm getting 15 from one box, and 9 from another. Should I even bother selling that on Ebay and just sell packs in groups? I mean if they're from separate cases then I'd imagine it wouldn't go for the same but I have seen some pack lots go for a pretty ridiculous amount. What are you guys thinking?

I mean having cards from separate cases poses an interesting problem and solution at the same time. If I get cracks from two different cases that opens up possibilities for multiple hits... but also has the same gamble of not getting anything at all.

Every time I make my mind up I have another reason to change it.

I'm sort of confused...did you buy a case or a box or is this 24 packs from 2 separate boxes? If that's the case then I would not buy the box since all the good hits were pulled. The only way you will make money is for sealed boxes. You could tell which packs had the relics and the guy selling could have just opened up packs until he pulled the auto and then sold the rest off. If that's the case then no wonder he sold the box for $89...there's no HITS in the remaining packs!

Yeah... it's 15 from one and 9 from another.

It's between two stores that had them... I guess I'm just wanting them regardless because nobody can get them. That being said though the 3 boxes I've cracked there's no way to know if you got an auto... I mean the relics sure... but I already have all those so it wouldn't exactly kill me if I didn't get them. I don't know... we'll see what happens.

I've seen unboxed packs selling well too... so I might just sell them in 3's or 4's and see what I can get.

Edit:

Here's another thought though... while the 15 is what was left from one case, the 9 from the other still leaves a few behind. I think there's still some in there... the guy just gave me MSRP for a full 'box' and I think he still had some extra too. I was going to ask my guy if he could get me those too... so that's another reason why I decided to do it.

True you can't tell which packs have autos but if I open a box and 10 packs in I pull the auto and I've already pulled the two relics that's 12 packs in...so now I have 12 packs that do not have anything in them and I can sell them that way. It's not an honest way of doing business but a lot of stores and ebay sellers do this.

John is a good dude. He was presenting a scenario (an all too real scenario) that happens a lot.

I wouldn't want mixed packs but that's just me.

This is the reason I only buy sealed boxes from places like Blowout.

I agree with you. If it's too good to be true, it is.

I think I may have to sell my Binder and Full set along with the one box I kept sealed.

I was just trying to say people do this...not saying that I've done this. I only buy and sell sealed boxes.

Thanks for the kind words and yes I was just presenting a scenario of what can happen with packs from mixed boxes!
