They anchored the post because we were using upvotes/downvotes to vote on which sport to break. Kind of killed the momentum.

Didn’t chicken start a voting feature a few years back? Whatever happened with that?

re: ShamlessPel - Case Break Time
Funny story. I actually bought cards from 17-18 Contenders to break here. Like a bunch of booster boxes just to get a lot of autos out there for a cheap entry price. I got one draft pick in my personal allotment of boxes out of 12-13 boxes and it was a late 2nd rounder. It obviously looked like they repackaged it with a bunch of cheap arse autos from UDFA. So I went into the case of boosters I’d bought for the MSB to see if it was any better because I could not reasonably break the terrible product I’d already opened myself. More crap. I ended up with 35ish autos, eating hundreds of dollars, not a single first round pick, and 2 2nd rd draft picks total. 33! Undrafted free agents. Luke Kornet auto x5. If i hadn’t of bought some for myself, people would have been absolutely pissed at me and it would have been massively embarrassing. All for something that was out of my control, Panini doing some shady crap with a product. To boot, they don’t do “quality control” on anything over a year old.

All of this is 100% factual and kind of left me pissed off at panini. If I see the right product come along, I’ll consider it. But between getting my post anchored by a bunch of whiny dickheads who obviously RA’d me (I don’t care about the reason to be honest), going ahead and doing it anyways, eating $400-500 just to make sure I wasn’t screwing over the breakers on the MSB, getting told by panini to kick rocks, and ending up with a gaggle of autos of people I’ve legit not heard of, I’m not really in the mood to front $1000+ right now that it would take to break an actual NBA case. And I didn’t follow MLB enough to know value this season.

ETA: watch. I’ll get downvoted for a post where I explain I ate hundreds of dollars to save a terrible break from happening. I don’t really have a good rep on the MSB outside of people that have broken cases with me. Probably doesn’t help I called out the people that RA’d cause “omg SP used the upvote/downvote function as a poll”.

re: ShamlessPel - Case Break Time
This is probably a stupid question but what is a case break?

I saw Shameless post above me but I’m still confused. Not hating. Legit curious.

ETA: nevermind. I looked it up. Pretty cool thing.

re: ShamlessPel - Case Break Time
Ive seen the same thing with Contenders Football. Probably busted 15 boxes, and I think the best I got was Vita Vea. The rest were mostly undrafted guys.

There are a lot go great baseball products right now. Topps Triple Threads are on fire. Same for Topps Gallery. Of course Inception and Flawless are great(for any sport), but they are crazy expensive.

Havent seen much good basketball yet this year. I know Prism has just come out, but I havent seen much from it yet.

Where did you get the dead boxes from? Blowout?

re: ShamlessPel - Case Break Time
Yeah Blowout. They essentially told me that it’s not their problem what’s in the boxes. I actually agree with them in this case. I mean it was bad. The first 13 I opened I got 4x Luke Kornet. Obviously not random at that point. I got multiple duplicates in the break boxes of other UDFA, like 3-4x three different players. Unlike football though, the checklist isn’t that large on the autos. That’s not bad luck at that point. That’s Panini knowing the draft class is white hot, having auto stickers left over for crappy players, and packaging it in a “17-18 booster box” knowing people will chase the on card Tatum’s etc. which of course I was trying to do for a MSB break.

You miss and you get players you don’t want, I get it. Some late firsts, a bunch of seconds, 1 or 2 lottery picks. Just bad luck. Over 90% UDFA isn’t a coincidence though. To boot the 2nd rd picks were of course guys that aren’t going to make every product. I’d broken the boosters before and knew what I was getting into.

Was just shady. I’ll look into it eventually again, but this happened only a month or two ago. I’m not worried about other products being like that, but it just pissed me off Panini would do something so obviously misleading.

I even was going to throw a graded Bregman Tribute rookie auto into the break for fun in case nothing super cool happened. I’m sure I’ll get over it, especially if the 17-18 stuff can come down a smidge as that draft class was loaded with talent and big name rookies. I just haven’t been in the mood to make the preparations all over again.

I’m sure they thought people would be buying the boosters in small quantities so they would get away with it. I honestly get angry thinking about it and retelling the story

re: ShamlessPel - Case Break Time
I would of thought Blowout would have done something if the boxes were tampered with. Was the original Pannini seal broken? I bought several 1989 Upper Deck low boxes years ago off eBay, and only got one Griffey rookie. The packs looked suspicious when they were partially unsealed. But no one factory sealed boxes back then. Are you taking some time off or looking to get some deals on Black Friday? I bought from Blowout on Black Friday before, and got a few nice cards.
