I'm already thinking about what I will buy with all the profits from my Olympics sales...is that bad? Is that counting the chicken's before they hatch? It's just so "guaranteed" if you have the right guys...argh, just get the damn games started already so I can list 'em!

nothing wrong with that...figure, got in early and if ya got the right people, sure you may quadruple your investment, but even if you list it at the wrong time, doubling isn't so bad either...either way, i wish i had more nvested in these, i don't think i'll come out too far ahead, but ahead nonetheless

the biggerf problem is what to get without losing all your profit...i'm thinking a case of benchwarmer daisy dukes

Yeah, it's all about WHO you invested in. For me, it was swimming, t & f and gymnastics ONLY. I have random other stuff from box breaks but they're more fillers than anything.

If you got in EARLY on Lochte, Phelps, Missy, Lolo, Solo, Morgan, Wambach, Wieber, Raisman, Gay and a few others, you're in great shape!

I am trying not to count my chickens but this has to be as close to a sure thing as I've seen in the past 3 years of my return to the hobby. I have spent a long time listing my stuff, now just waiting to let it loose! Biggest problem will be shipping it all out if people pay on time!!

Wow!

You should just give people paying more than $200 for these free sets just to get rid of them! You are going to make a killing.

The only auto I have that is worth anything is base Alex Morgan but I didnt buy it cheap. Dont think I will come out ahead unless all the other hits sell well.

Excellent buy-in prices! I got in in the middle so I paid more than you (Lochte= $50; Missy= $40; Morgan= $99 etc. etc. etc.) but still happy with what I have. Even have some sleepers that I'm hoping make a splash!

Holy smokes. Pretty sure a 10/10 sold for a little over $500 the other day, so whoever bought this definitely overpaid

Same here...pretty sure all of my Lochtes are 9.5 quality.


Would be nice if there was a database with dates and events that the athletes competed in and who are the favorites for each.

You know that you DO have control over when you get the stuff back (2 day, 5 day, 10 day etc.) so you can calculate if you can get them back in time...

I thought about grading them, but to me sending to BGS is such a hassle and sending thousands of dollars in cards in the mail makes me nervous

If anyone is interested, Blowout has blasters at 17.95 each...sale started today...

I was going to order 8 this morning at $20 each so I could get over the $150 for free shipping, but then decided, do I really want 8 more blasters, and figured I would get 1 box of benchwarmer vault for $45 and then only buy 5 blasters...so of coursem the bencwarmer vault is sold out...so i figure i won't buy anything...

so now I see this sale of blasters at $18 each and figure I have been buying them at target for $22 ($20 plus tax)...should I buy more or not...sheesh, hated sorting all the base sets...now will have more to sort...well...

y'all should be proud of me, I didn't buy the 8 blasters....

I BOUGHT THE STUPID CASE THEY HAD ON SALE FOR $270!!!!

The only bummer thing though is sorting all of it come next week and the fact for some reason it didn't use my credit that I had with blowout from trading in my game used and autos...

This is the last hurrah for me on these blasters, can't find anymore around here anyway,...
