Just a quick heads up that blowout has them back in stock right now at $34.95 a box or $344.95 a case for those that missed out.

I'm thinking these will be gone quick even at the inflated price.

Not sure if I'm going to keep them, or even open them (okay, I'll probably open them... I mean, I don't think I have the self control not to). Anyway, you guys really did a first class job from what I can see. The boxes are very cool and have a nice premium feel compared to the other small press stuff I have purchased. The signed GK Space promo is a nice touch, although when I saw the top-loader I was expecting the ticket card with the clown on it. Very cool.

And mine arrived from SolarFly today. SolarFly is in CO and I'm in NJ, so there shouldn't be any complaints about shipping in the US.

I get the impression that the majority like the chance at the big hit but are more in this for the sketches. I could see cases/boxes going up a good amount in the short term if no one hits the Barnum auto, but there will be no fire sale with this stuff once the card is hit. I don't think case/box prices will matter in another week and a half being there are only 61 cases total and 80% of those will be busted. The people who try to list this on Ebay for $600 or more will grow impatient because no one will be interested at that price, and they will just end up busting themselves. Even if you sell for $400 you are making like $65 profit after fees and shipping. At that point you will do better opening the boxes, possibly hitting an awsome sketch, and probably end up making more than selling sealed. Just my opinion.

That is only if you got your 10 pack from SolarFly. If you bought on BO, you are seeing much less on a $400 sale.

I agree with you though... The hype was high on this product well before the Barnum was announced. People were talking $40/box then. The Barnum might help increase the price in the short term, but I don't think the Barnum being redeemed will hurt the price in the long term.

Since I was only in on the 4 pack wave I didn't order enough to qualify for free shipping. I took the cheapest shipping option "flat rate ground". Bunch of 4 pack breaks posted already, so several people have gotten the stuff today.

I'm sure the P.T. Barnum letter being pulled wont drop the price on this..
I'm in for the sketches...anything else is just a bonus..
Also it's not that high of a value .....Item number 221225515016

Speaking of buying from BO, did anyone get a shipping notification? I really figured these would go out today.

Um, I think they're behind on their orders since their July 4th sale. I ordered early morning July 4th for some supplies and a couple boxes of old Fleer Flair Baseball cards ... I JUST got my shipping notification this afternoon ...
