agree, although the point is definitely made... you can definitely get killed with solitary/loose boxes.
Redeeming thing about hand packed stuff like Exquisite/Cup is that usually you get at least 1 'premium' card per box.

I was going to say the same thing. Not trying to be rude, but that was a rough box... and you still made 50-60% of your money back. Not trying to sugar coat it, but I don't think this stuff is nearly as bad as some people make it out to be. I've gone from super excited about it, to terrified after seeing the silver ink autos and all the chipping problems, to it's not bad/pretty good imo.

Agreed. If an awful high end break makes back 50%+ that's pretty damn good IMO.

Thick cards are easily chipped. Either during production, transit to and from the player and when packed out.

I personally think i will take over Topps' design bureau and fire who ever thought the negative wash look is a good idea. It's in Magic, Gypsy Queen and a host of other Topps prodcuts, it's fugly!
