They were set to release and ship today. I don't think SK will allow people to get theirs days before others like UD, Topps, et al do.

I'm anxious too, but I'm so busy, I don't really care if mine comes this month or next.

I didn't realize Topps released their hobby product early.

Matt -- I must have misunderstood. I thought June 1 was delivery date, not SHIP date. Are you sure about this? With ITG, the date they had as release date was the delivery date, not the ship date.

I just received confirmation that all U.S. orders are being shipped today from New Jersey.

Good luck everyone with what you pull. I'm buying all rare cards for the right price, so please keep me in mind.

Thanks,

Matt

I never got any info from ITG when I emailed them last week, so I'm guessing they were busy with the packing/shipping. But even on ebay, there aren't any listings yet, which makes me think maybe they did wait until today to ship them.

Tim,

June 1st is "release date". Never did anything say June 1st would be delivery date. That doesn't mean some won't get it today I suppose, but most will get theirs over the next couple of days.

I heard directly from Dr. Price that all U.S. orders are shipping today from New Jersey.

Capt,

These boxes originally sold for $650 delivered.

Also the reason I only have one coming!!!!! They're not cheap, but with the two boxes worth of packs (expecting that they broke up 2 boxes for each one and didnt randomize the boxes then insert them in), the boxes themselves could be interesting to open...but yeah, not cheap!

I don't think you'll be able to pay that little anymore. Two people are already trying to sell theirs on-line for over $900. They were pre-sells and not in-hand, in case you're wondering Tim.

I'm at the office. My wife tells me UPS made a delivery about two hours ago and since I'm not expecting anything else, I assume it is my Sportkings delivery.

Rob,I thought you were saving these to open at the Sportsking booth at the National. It will be an antsy two months for you if that the case.

I don't think Sportkings are going to be giving away any redemptions for these Super Boxes at the National. They are already giving away a "free" 1/1 Super Box card in each Super Box.

Yeah, I'm going to hold off. I may not be able to open them at the National. My other thoughts are its probably not worth opening right now given if everyone opens there's, thats 400 boxes of Sport Kings Series B going to be listed on ebay (big yeah for Matt). This will deflate prices. I'm not worried about the base or mini sales which means any special ones I get (autos/jerseys) should hold their value. Downside, those that need them now, may get them. Thats fine. If sales are really weak when I open them, Matt will have some compeition on COMC with them

Matt may have some competition for them. I'm looking to expand my meager collection. Figure with all of these SK superboxes, it may be a good time. Although, I really need to preserve cash for the National.

I am only interested in cards numbered to 4 or less. If there are more than 4 of them that exist, you won't get any competition from me.

Good luck with what you're searching for. I think you are right that now is a great time to buy SK singles. Here's a list of what I have at COMC with more on the way, if you're wanting to get a quick start:

Thanks for looking. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I love talking about Sportkings.

Attached are scans of the 1/1 cards I pulled from Superbox II. I'm thinking of listing them for sale, however, I could use some advice on pricing.

sweet cards, would suggest talking to wheeler about them, he could either help you with an idea on pricing or might be interested in them.

Would you consider selling them off-line to me? I pay high prices. Probably higher than you'd get on Ebay, and that would save you fees.
