Default Walking Dead Season 2....Rip or Sell???

I don't know much about this stuff, just that it seems to be selling well. As none of it would be for a PC, if I rip it, it would be strictly for trying to make money. I'm picking up at least 1 case (at a price I could profit from). Deciding to either break it down or sell it on my site. What do you guys think?

I'm not going to be offended if you just wanted to resell it, others would be upset that a collector wouldn't have the same chance and that it's unfair.

Personally though, my collection will still get completed despite your financial prosperity. So do what works best for you, and don't worry about people who are mad about it.

if you're doing it STRICTLY to make money, you're better of selling it...
that way you're guaranteed profit

Maybe I'll try watching it first, see if there are actors/actresses I would want to collect. If I end up moving it, I would want it to go to someone who is a collector, that would enjoy opening it. I just don't know a bunch about the characters yet.

i cant see you making a profit from a case right now. for another 300 bucks you can get a case of series one . if series 2 ends up being a 2,000 case at some point like season one........... its going to be a little while .

So where can you get season 1 cases for $2000.00?

they are more like $2700 now - you can't sniff them for $2000.00.

to the op, why would you open something you don't care about and then have to spend a ton of time researching values, listing, taking pix, packaging, shipping, etc.? either take the money and run with a flip of the case or sit on it for a few months because trust me they WILL go up from here.

someone w cash .. make an offer of 2000 to see if cases sell at that .. it isnt selling at 2700 at the moment

to the OP go half .. break open half a case and sell the other half sealed (as sealed boxes of course)

He is showing a scan of an already opened box. Not the best way to advertise a $2000+ item. He should be showing a scan of the actual case the buyer would get.
