Walking Dead Dilemma: To Bust Or Not To Bust
 
Aside from not hitting on the $640 million mega millions last week I have been having a great string of luck in regards to this hobby. I opened one box of Galaxy 7 and pulled a sketchagraph that I sold for $340. Now today I went to the LCS to grab some supplies and saw the had a unopened box of Walking Dead for $125 plus 11 packs at $5 each. Needless to say I purchased all of it.

Now here is the dilemma. I plan on flipping the box as that will net me $100 give or take. I bought the packs with the intent of opening them all but I'm thinking I should sell the other 10 in 5 pack lots and make some money on top of selling what I hit from the first pack I opened. :eek:

the Rick badge is in your box :devil:

ThatBostonGuy 04-03-2012 04:56 PM

Yes. I haven't opened the other 10. I just saw that card and stopped.

Also, before anyone says anything, that white line that looks like a crack was a dog hair on top of the case.

It's a catch 22.

You want the Rick badge... but you want to make money. I opened the packs I just found... hoping to find more too. It's ridiculous but fun at the same time. I ended up pulling 1 auto and 2 relics out of 6 packs and it was well worth it. So you never know!

The collector in me told me to open the packs since I wanted to build the set. I hit nothing significant in the other 10 packs. Now how has extra base cards they are willing to sell??

Just open the box. You could make $100 profit, on the box itself. BUT you would have more fun opening the box, and possibly pulling the Rick patch which would sell for $10,000 lol. Yes I'm the little devil on your shoulder, the rest of these guys can be the angel.

Ughh why did you have to plant that seed into my head. I am actually considering open the box. I know I will lose out though.

If all you are about is money sell it all

You'll never know unless you open it :D haha. I know that doesn't help.

Since when did this hobby turn into ist all about the money.
Rules i live by: Buy it, open it, enjoy it, and repeat :)

I would say if you had 5+ boxes and could make a few hundred, I would sell. With 1 box, you might make $60. Is that really worth the time to list, sell, wait for payment, ship and hope there is no buyer's remorse?

On the other hand, if you hit a patch redemption....that's $700 like now (I would pay you $725). These boxes are drying up and 10 redemptions are still unaccounted for.

I say break it, what's going to happen when the buyer emails you and says "Thanks for the Patch!". You'll be sick.
