Not too bad. You can buy a case of the stuff for around $200-220 which will give you a great start, plus you can sell the YSLs and hits to get some of your money back on the case. I did a case myself and it was pretty fun. I was able to help out quite a few team/player collectors on this site and got some nice Twins lots in exchange...I sold the leftover YSLs and Golds from the case and got around $100+ back on the case, plus I had 12 Autographs, a YSL GU and YSL Buyback auto. Now if you're looking to do all the golds, then I'd say you're crazy.
i just purchased a couple boxes from charm city one of our sponsors, they have decent prices, but once your started hit me up i have all of mine up for trade as i ws hoping to get the ysl's we needed for the bench project.
and as for selling the ysl's i have really think i can make some money off of them on ebay? i hardly ever go there anymore, never even crossed my mind.
Blowout has them for around $220 during the weekend specials, which is higher than they were a few months back ($180), but still a good deal IMO. Cracking a case will give you most of the base and insert cards, but will barely get you started on the golds.
I think I might have a couple hundred of these cards. You can get them at the Dollar Tree. They are yours if you want them. I know we talked about trading for some Mets base cards, I'd be more then happy to trade you what I have for those Mets. LMK.
Look at this way, with the glass half full. You will always be on the hunt for something. I think that is the challenge here. Finding what we are looking for. Besides how important is it what others think?
Tankp: was just curious on opinions in the end it was my decision and I am happy with it though being the first case I ever bought It has been a lot of work hoping to get them all in order by the end of the day.Then the real hard part a want list.Thanks
