Sportkings Series E - (2) 16-box cases from Master
I will start by saying that I have always thought SK was nice looking. But I just don't see this holding at $80 a box (direct price). You have to pull the most amazing Cut, Patch, or Painting card to make your case price back.
I was able to make a base set from the 2 cases and was an "N" short on the premium cards of spelling out SPORTKINGS twice.

Nice hit on the Cut and the Vitale
Why Dave Stewart, Ouch, Dave Stewart is a badass of a pitcher who totally deserves to be in the product then again that's just my opinion as an A's fan, anyway pm a price on it if you're moving it and a scan to please. thx

This stuff puts a buyer in an interesting situation. At $84 I cannot sell sealed and make money and if I rip at this price considering the breaks odds are Im going to get killed. I have 48 boxes and no way out. Darnit Sportkings....

Just like every other Sports Card Case Gamble/Investment -
Think about it 12,000 boxes @ $100 each retail = $1,200,000
Cost to manufacture, buy swatches, autos, 250+ Jared Kelly Art Cards, shipping, distribution, packaging, etc. = 40% $480,000 (est)
Dr. Price Should make a little for all his work = $100,000
Distributor Makes $12 a box a little $144,000
Leaves $476,000 worth of value as compared to retail, so you can expect to make about 40% or less back on average. We all know it's a gamble.
