OMG That third box was TERRIBLE!!!! Did anybody else watch this?

Also, I can't believe Boomo was charging around $650 per box and then the very next day they are now selling for $500/box. Boomo was basically told he was getting a free case but with the price he was charged for the other four it was basically the price it would cost for 5 cases at the current price! :eek::eek::eek:

We know what he charged per slot. Do you know what he paid?

That is true, all I know is Boomo said he paid for four, never said what HE paid, just what he charged

And to be fair it's no one's business but his own what he paid.

And in all fairness he does have the right to make some profit from it

Absolutely.

I can see this whole points system and ticket drawing coming back to bite the company in the ass. Seems like a way to drum up money upfront and then the buyers have to hope that the comapny is successful enough to deliver on their promises, five months later.

death2redemptions 01-04-2013 11:02 PM

Boomo didn't really do nothing wrong...but the product is just junk in my opinion. I wouldn't ever buy it simply because there is nothing original in it and the players I PC shouldn't be in products that expensive

I'm amused at how much trouble they had using scissors

At the 3:01 mark, he mentions that the cards are slabbed by beckett. [B]Even the raffle ticket cards.[/B]

Maybe this is why Beckett is wrapped up in this. I wonder how much Beckett made by slabbing raffle redemption cards.

yea but their is a bunch of cards that aren't slabbed by Beckett, like the ungraded vintage which to me throws up a red flag. why would you send in raffle tickets to be slabbed, and not throw the vintage their way to be graded.

The ripper used a great word for the points system. He used the word "gimmick". Then quickly changed the word. In reality that is all the point system is...it's a big gimmick.

Also, in reality if there are two of those "Game of Chance" bull crap cards per case, you probably shouldn't count those as hits. So now instead of 12 cards you are really paying for 10 cards and at 1500 a case that'd be $150. Nothing I've seen really shows to me that any case would make it's money back. Also take into account the fact that the vintage could be fake and it really just adds up to a terrible product that should be destroyed.

1 of the commentors can't wait for it to hit his LCS. One dude wrote like a 4 paragraph essay on how great the product and owner are. He asks "you know how long this must have taken to put together" Well not to long considering all you need to do is be active on ebay and you could put this product together in a matter of months with a good amount of capital. A lot of the "chase" items you wouldn't need to buy up front since the drawings aren't until May.

wait a minute.

did they really pull a [I]raw[/I] $5 card from one of these boxes?

reading these comments, did these guys watch the same break I did, a base ichiro

98whitesteed 01-05-2013 01:24 AM

Wow, that figures. The box that they give away to the viewers/suckers has crap. Hahaha Beckett makes me laugh.

AUTaxMan 01-05-2013 01:27 AM

Can't make myself watch the Beckett Box Busters videos. Requires looking at Olds.

That was like the biggest smack to the face! Why would you want to get a 2012 Chrome Base Ichiro graded to begin with? I mean, who cares if it is a 10. :rolleyes:

That might sell for a few dollars and then there was also the 2012 Topps Bryce Harper gold parallel #d /2012 worth like five bucks. JJJJuuuunnnnkkkkk

hitman1116 01-05-2013 01:37 AM

reading the comments almost makes me question whether I'm wrong in thinking this product is terrible....but then I read the comments about how this is better than Topps 5 Star, yet, this product has autos and jersey cards from it

texas 01-05-2013 02:04 AM

^^^^^^^
I know right people are bashing Five Star yet they have jumbo relics lol

Tugarpj 01-05-2013 02:05 AM

I'll bet those are stacked comments. Employees and such.
Edit. Nope. They're straight up it appears. Some people actually like this stuff????

Well, I just sent this comment in. Wonder if it will get approved? ;)

[QUOTE]Seems like a complete ripoff. Ungraded vintage, graded base cards that may get $20, and raffle tickets that *MAY* get you SOME (more than likely) unauthenticated autographed memorabilia? AND for $500? What happens if this product doesn’t sell and they close up shop before those raffle tickets are drawn?[/QUOTE]

We'll see.

hitman1116 01-05-2013 02:24 AM

just went through the case that beckett got. From what I can tell, through ebay listings, boxes 1 and 2 would recoup over half, if the memorabilia actually gets sent out and is legit. Box 3 however....would barely cross over $100 in resale vale on a great day.

I take it back. They posted your comment. Good for them. At least we know the comments are on the up and up now.
