I was thinking if Tiger Lost today that the prices would cool a bit (They will still be insane just not $4000 a case)
I saw that a box of 04 Sp Sigs sold for $589 BIN the other day. I was going to list mine if Tiger could have won but I think now I will hold it till the Masters unless wax keeps selling this crazy.

I think it would take Tiger not winning another tourney this year for these cases to come down to any reasonable price. I believe the odds of pulling a Tiger RC are around 1 in 6-7 cases (but I could be wrong), so that's A LOT of $ to pay.

Brad's right. I busted two cases of this stuff when it first came out and pulled only two /900 rookie autos (not Tiger of course). I think there were five or six /900s in the set and they fall around one per case. Unless you love golf cards, the boxes are full of junk outside of a few hits, and I mean a few. Like most product, you're much better off buying the key card from someone who already did the work and save yourself some money, but back to the point of the post... a big wow to a golf product that outsells all other SPA issues other than 1998 football. That Tiger sure is sweet.

not sure what you mean by reasonable, but they will drop some now that he lost and everyone starts profit taking. probably see it go back to $3k/case or less.

obviously it will never be $33/box again, which is what i paid in 2003

i think it is much tougher than that. seen many cases without autos.

I just had an AWESOME mailday. I ordered 3 boxes of 01 Sp Auth Golf a few days before the explosion but they were still really CHEAP compared to the going rate then. I did not think I was going to see these boxes because a lot of places would have lied and said they were out but today I have them.
3 Boxes in hand for about 40% of what they are selling for now.
This feels really good considering I do not get lucky like this very often. I guess I will wait till Master weekend and list them and my 04 Sp Sigs Box and hope they fly!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's actually one auto /900 in every five-six cases. And I believe there are five or six of those, so you are talking one in every 30 cases to pull a Tiger. Wax cases are insanely overpriced.

I thought they were 1 auto /900 per case as well, not one every 5-6 cases. Maybe I was just lucky but that's the way they fell for me.

i remember we had this type of discussion a while back and the general thought was that tiger auto's fell almost 1:10 cases? regradless, that is one hell of a gamble.

I hope Tiger gets off to a great start this weekend. I had listed my boxes with BIN/BO and had nothing but stupid ass low ballers sending me offers of $650 on 3 boxes. I hate ebay.
I for one would NEVER open one of these boxes. I have had them for a month and was not even close to being tempted once which is normally not the case with wax.

They're offering a better deal:

- The Upper Deck Store

Thanks for the tip -- at this point an authentic Tiger auto -- sticker or not -- is a great deal at $500.00, and the ball and display is gravy!

I agree. I bought one, going through ebates.com and got 6% off which comes to ~ $32 savings.

Wouldn't it be better if he signed the ball?

I bought one too -- hell his non-rookie auto cards are bringing more than that -- I think this is as good an investment as there is in today's climate.

There are several of these on Ebay .. one even with a BIN of less than the UD price ... and one sold for best offer of $399!! Don't know how those sellers do it .. I guess they just like to lose money!

They are dealers who have a direct account and get the items alot cheaper then people who just go on the UD website and buy them. Don't think for a minute these sellers aren't making money on there Tiger auctions! If UD is offering them to you for $499, I bet there getting them for $300-$325

Exactly. The markup on most of the UD pieces is huge. Dealers get them for about half the price UD has them for sale on upperdeck.com.

I got my Tiger auto'd Masters flag framed piece back about a year ago when they used to let you use the 50% off coupons from entering the codes from decoy cards. Looks like they no longer let you use the codes for Tiger autos anymore though.

That's interesting ... I didn't realize they made those pieces available to dealers at a direct cost. I thought those were for the UD Store exclusively. That would explain the 'dumping' on Ebay, however.

The question is how long will the dumping last.
