Quite honestly, that is what I would have put my case up for on ebay before I broke it considering prices on individual boxes.

Here's what I don't understand and you, of all people, would know this better than anyone because of your continuous research.

You can piece together a Master Set w/ the Patch for at/under $2350

Base set plus both insert sets - $60
Wardrobe set 1-17 - $450
Binder plus Wardrobe #18 - $150
All 5 Promos - $100
Both Bernthal Autos - $160
Both Yeun Autos - $60
Both Riggs Autos - $60
Both Bell Autos - $60
Both James Autos - $60
Both Rooker Autos - $80
Both Singleton Autos - $60
Both Reedus Autos - $300
Rick Patch - $750

Now, the only draws are the 1/1s and the Shane is already gone. If you buy the case, here's what you won't get:

Binder plus M18
All 5 Promos
Complete Auto set, and you won't get both Bernthals and Reedus Autos in a case.
Chances are you won't get the Lori M2 Super SP.

It just doesn't make sense.

I really think people are trying to hit that Rick Patch, and will do whatever necessary to give themselves a chance.

Anyone want to go halves on the case?? lol

Remember, aside from the standard hits, there is also the sketch as well as a chance at the redemptions. Considering single boxes can fetch $200+, I would expect a sealed case to have more of a premium as you know that the sketch hasn't been pulled.

As for making sense, ultra hot wax prices don't follow logic. Take a look at Inkworks boxes of Twilight. The absolute best card you can pull isn't exceedingly rare and can pull $300-$400 whereas the boxes would sell for well over that.

This theory extends to sports releases as well.

I'm one of the watchers.

Let's all pitch in for the case, and see if we can get that patch! Lol.

Prices are way too high for me anymore, but at $196 a box, I can see a high roller jumping on this real soon.

edit: they also have a nice Lori sketch (which would make me steer clear of their single boxes), but it's not $500 nice (two nice Rick sketches recently went in the $300s).

Way too much to go for a set right now. I only have 5 autos (thanks to multiple Carl and Glenn duplicates) so I'll only be going for one auto of each character (at least I have a Reedus). The redemption ate up my entire card budget for a while so not looking to do it any time soon.

I went the exact opposite of you t25... Instead of goin for that redemption, I chose to finish my set, with my remaining funds. Now that I'm finished tho, I may sell. As I've statd, part of my fun is the hunt, and getting it all organized. Yup I'm OCD or sumthing lol.

I think it's kinda hard to trust people over the internet to split something like this, everyone would want to do the ordering/opening/selling/etc.
