No, I just want to hold one. Of course that's the reason. Who's trying to disguise it?

Thats the only reason I would want a rip card to sell it. As pointed out they typically can make back 10 to 15% of the total case price. There are NO cards I buy that I will not sell if the money is right.

The last thing I want after waiting 6 months for a product is have to send in 144 wrappers delivery conf to topps and beg for a replacment. Topps is going to
take MAJOR heat for this crap.

Guru, what are you still doing at home, I'd already be on my way to pick up a few boxes. For those of you that wondered about when Blowout will be shipping, Chris from Blowout told me the cases would be shipping out tomorrow and tracking numbers would be available later in the day.

Well, to be honest, the fundage is very low. Other than the blasters my mother in law is getting me for my birthday, I don't think I will be able to purchase much more. I've had a few things the last couple of months that need financial attention. I will have fun watching on here what everyone is getting though.

That shop by your office always has really good pricing, it's a very good thing I don't work near there.....I would be divorced and broke.

I would be very pleased if that was my first 8 boxes. Early reports so far indicate more value in this years boxes than last. I hope the boards
can keep up that momentum.

Arch- If you are even thinking about A&G, THAT price is a keeper! Worst case you open it, hate it and trade it all to me for heritage! LOL

blasters, are retail boxes with usually 8 packs in them...you benifit in price because one of the packs are free. Target, TRU and Wal Mart are your
best bet. Its never too early to start the search. If you buy a bunch at target early chances are they will replenish soon, so check back. Usually
all retail stores are done on one day, so if you hit gold, probably all the stores have them in.

Good Luck
Kevin
