Default One Box of PRESS PASS 5 STAR

Here are the goods from my first ever box of racing. The Danica sheet metal doesn't scan well as the off white part of the sheet metal circle is actually flourescent orange. Looks way better than the scan.

Nice hits but I don't know about making your money back on a $600 to $650 box.

I'm really interested in seeing how this stuff compares in sales to similiar Showcase hits and some of the nicer Legends hits.

I wasn't talking about you. I know that.

I was answering the other guy who wanted to know what he would have to pay.

I hope that stuff sells for alot higher than Showcase.

I would think the Danica alone would pay for the box.

i think that was a killer box. not sure why they insist on that sticker on Danica's auto though.

Well, the Danica's out of showcase, were selling for between 1-200.

I pulled one of her Auto & racing tape numbered out of 10 that sold for mid range that value.

This should sell for more because it is in booklet style but I don't think it will be near that much.

As I said before, it will be interesting to see what happens with the sales. Showcase last year set the bar for high end and now this has way surpassed that in terms of high end. Hopefully the corresponding sales will go way up also.

Got the wife to take a pic with her camera since my scanner wouldn't pick up the sheet metal right

That picture looks much, much better Eric.

I had to do the same thing with a Gordon sheetmetal I pulled from Showcase. When I scanned it, the flourescent orange came out looking light pink. When I took a picture, it looked much better.
