I'm not a huge SportKings fan but I would venture to guess the minis remain popular and in the future complete sets will be rare and command a premium.

As far as box tops I don't think Wheeler ever said they were selling for $15 outside of the $15 he pays. Did he reference somewhere that tops were selling for $15 that he wasn't buying?
Very well put.

This is an accurate statement. Matt has acknowledged all along that he was paying a very fair price versus Ebay.

To judge a set by the sales of its commons is not fair nor accurate. People have to discount Exquisite Base Cards many times to 90% off book to sell them.
