Yes, you can, but it's complicated. I think you first have to set GSP for ALL Intl orders and then go in manually somewhere to setup overrides on specific countries. But occasionally GSP will show up...

I tried to buy multiple Yankees sets and was capped at one, so at least it appears they are limiting how many you can buy, which I understand is fair and I'm fine with that. I do think the Jeter /99...

Archives is more fun to open, but there is not much value to it.

Heritage can be boring as crap to open, but the value is sky high.

So, you're basically choosing between Fun and Value.

I'm trying 5 cases this year. Helps to offset any potential collation issues. I already sold out of master sets at $380 and can probably make about 2 more. Looks like I will pre-sell about $600 per...

1:8 packs.

I pre-sold 13 sets from $20-$25 each. They all sold out within 24 hours. Really amazing what these are doing pre-sell considering how easy they are to pull.
