Default What are you paying for Contenders at your LCS?

Just called mine up ... said he got 2 cases and is selling for $140 each. That blew me away since he usually way overcharges for stuff ($75 chrome, $95 epix, etc). Just curious what you guys are paying at the local

He had them at 150, but I come in pretty regularly to BS and buy supplies and he charged me 140 each for 3 boxes.

Bought two today for $108 each. I was beyond surprised seeing that since I checked BO right before I went out. After seeing what everyone else is posting, I'm heading back soon.

I dont know about contenders but I paid 260 saturday at a show for 2 Certified hobby boxes, 1 Topps Finest hobby box and 1 09 Upper Deck Icons. The Icons sucked, the other 3 were great. That is almost 100 dollars cheaper then blowout. I got a great new connection.
