Default ? About 2012 Upper Deck Marvel Premier

Hello I was just wondering when this product came out how much $$$ was it per box? I am thinking I seen somewhere where it said $200.00 but was not sure if that was correct.

The boxes of it that you can find now are going for $400.00+.

Thanks for the help.

is there any value in it at $400.00 a box? I have never bought non sports card before and just wondering how well the value of these cards hold up over time.

I have searched on Ebay and they are on there but that really is not a good gauge I don't think of the overall value of the cards.

Thanks fro the info.

I think the value peaked awhile ago on the individual cards, but demand for the sealed product is very high--thus the inflated box price.

It's a solid product and I'd break it at $250, but no way at $400--if you are into reselling.

If you just want some nice sketches and limited inserts and base, then have at it

There's great value in it if you can manage to hit one of the group "c" cards, or whatever the SSP shadowbox insert sets are. One sold for over $1k a while back, I believe. There are still people looking to complete the manufactured patch (classic corners) set, too.

I don't exactly recall, but I know it was in the $165 to $175 a box range, direct, at release. If you were to hit some good sketches and even a couple base cards that haven't shown up for sale in a while, I'd imagine you could get your money back on a box. It'd definitely take some luck, though.

Thanks for all the info and help it is appreciated.

Nabzy, how would you know if you got a group "c" card? I am going to try to google the checklist and see what I can come up with.

I was thinking they were way inflated just form what I saw for the sealed product. I think they are awesome visual cards just have to really set on the idea and see what I can come up with.

I guess you will never know if you don't take the chance . Thanks again for all the info it is very helpful.

Upper deck released the short print information on these cards:

Upper Deck Releases Short Print Information on 2012 Marvel Premier | Upper Deck Blog

The Group A cards in both the classic corners and shadow boxes are the most SP, and as nabzy mentioned, some have gone for big money lately. HOWEVER, the odds of hitting a group A card are like 1 in 30-40 boxes. 90% of the boxes will contain one or two of the more common inserts that will likely sell for less than $50 each, plus a couple of base cards that will sell for $20-30 each. There's also plenty of great sketch cards, but are you likely to pull $250-300 worth?

It's definitely a big gamble at the current price. The price is that high because there isn't much sealed product left, and because there is a small chance at hitting a big $ hit, and enough people willing to gamble. My thinking though is this... if I didn't want to buy it at $250/box, why would I buy it at $400/box? I personally think there are much better buys at the current price. But I understand that some people like the rush of opening a high dollar box and gambling for a big hit.

It's definitely for the high-end hit chaser type of collector at this point. However, I do think there's way better opportunity to make back a decent amount of your money on this product than, say, buying a box of Five Star or National Treasures. I mean, I've seen boxes of NT that literally yield less than $50 in sale value on a $600 box. People got reamed. At least with this, the sketches are all 1/1 type cards that could be huge to a set collector.

-----------
Not to hijack your thread but, here's the link to the case I broke earlier this year. I feel like I got really lucky and nearly every box was pretty good. There have been others posted that you just have to wonder if they can even get $100 back on everything in it. What helps, at this point, is the fact that there is so very little product left for collectors to choose from. It results in base cards selling for over $100 each, etc. .... I wish I'd have just kept mine. I don't recall selling any for more than about $25 or $30 each at the time. I do know, on the other hand, that I got REALLY good money for my sketches. I don't think a single one I ended up selling has ever shown up for sale again since.

That was a cool case in deed. I am def thinking about it just have to wrap my head around teh possibility of not getting anything great.

If I do decide to take the plunge I will def post them up on here. I may even get some 13 Marvel Retro as well. Seems these cards a bit more fun than sports cards can be. I may be a future convert :turkey:

Thanks again for the info.

That is correct - MSRP was around $200/box, but after the first wave (during release week) most of the breaks followed a sale where boxes were available for under $180. After that, price just kept rising.

DA had them for $450, I'll pass less I win some $ lol. Last years BF sale I got a box for $159. Doubt they'll drop this year though even a little bit.

I can't imagine they'll even be under $300 to $350/box again. I doubt any of the places that actually have a box or case available have them left from initial UD purchases. It's far more likely they picked them up off sellers when the prices were skyrocketing just to have some to offer in stock.
