Just watched all of the breaks. It was like watching the coin guy on Home Shopping Network with no producer to guide him.

Some HUGE loser cards were, Albert Pujols Five Star Jersey, Bryce Harper 2012 green chrome refractor, 2010 Jason Heyward, 2001 Fleer Gametime Pujols /2000, Five Star Relic/Auto Sandberg, Harper Gold Rush.....etc and there were a LOT of etc.

One guy bought 3 consecutive spots and got 1994 Ken Griffy Hot glove, 1967 ungraded Hank Aaron, 2012 topps chrome refractor Trout. Lost at least 300.00

That heroic ticket crap is for the birds. Lots of low end Trout and Harpers with bgs 9-10.
Some really nice hits but taken as a whole...a very bad investment.

Yep that's me. I'm real...

I got a 1960 Fleer Babe Ruth PSA 7, which I think I found in completed listings. Boomo refused to show me my card, so I can't confirm.

In blog.tv private chat I axed jcmint if he was in the break. He said, "no, i'm a sponsored guest."

When I questioned boomo about it, I got banned.

I got back in because I had a spot in the break.

I was banned again because I was trash talking the product.

I definately think Boomo got a huge kickback for this.

This whole thing was definitely sketchy...

A 1960 Fleer Babe Ruth PSA 7 isn't that bad...you could get anywhere around $120-$180 or so

A quick ebay search says its worth between 55-100. Better than most, I am satisfied with this.

Seriously? Who would want to join a break where the guy doesn't show what's opened?

[QUOTE=free2131;3943170]Seriously? Who would want to join a break where the guy doesn't show what's opened?[/QUOTE]

He did show it when he first broke it, i axed him to show it about 20 minutes later to try to match the serial numbers to the ones on ebay.

I now see in the videos on blog that mine was not in completed ebay listings.

I don't see what auctions your looking at but every PSA 7 that I see has a buy it now of $150 or higher...however it doesn't mean they will sell at that price. I see a PSA 4 for $60, PSA 6 at $80 and PSA 6.5 at $100 but all PSA 7 at $150+. Now it doesn't mean people will pay that much but imagine you could get at least $120 for a PSA 7 if you put it up for auction. I'm not trying to defend this garbage break that Boomo hosted because it was garbage for the most part but that Ruth graded PSA 7 isn't as horrible as some of the other stuff.

On the right there is an option to view 'completed listings' and you can see they sell between 55 and 100. Centering on mine is a little off T/B but good L/R.

I really like the card I got. I know it could have been a lot worse.

whats funny after you got booted a couple of his regulars came in and he showed them all what they pulled

Alright, I gotcha. I never really check completed auctions so didn't see that. Well it's still better than a 2010 Topps Chrome Jason Heyward rookie base card or 2012 Topps Chrome Yu Darvish rookie base card even if graded 10's :)

You axed him? Second time you typed something about "axed him". WTF does that mean? Ask him maybe? Kids these days...

cruiserdaddy7 01-03-2013 02:37 AM

This product sounds VERY similar to a Leaf Best of product. No transparency and someone buying cards on eBay to sell at triple the cost. Is there something I am missing? If Brian Gray does this its golden.

pigeonsbaseball 01-03-2013 03:26 AM

Wow, I has to watch 1 case of this stuff and what I'm asking is where did this price point come from. There's no retail market, it doesn't sell anywhere and he admittedly had no idea what this product was about.

Personally I wouldn't feel right taking big money like this for a spot for something for a product I knew nothing about.

The worst thing is those Heroic Points, you don't even get a card, here's the link to the rules

[url=http://www.heroesofsportinc.com/viewuserdefinedpage.aspx?pn=howitworks]how-it-all-works[/url]


Just looking at the first case, this was $650 or so a case? Holy cow, the only exact card that can't be valued on ebay is the Longoria, but this is about $200 of product.

Mike Trout 2011 PSA 10 - On average sell for about $40-$50

Nolan Ryan "Don't Mess With Texas" BIN $99

Evan Longoria 2008 Upper Deck X RC BGS 10, none on ebay but card is $3 PSA can't sell for $20.

Ted Williams 1959 FLEER TED WILLIAMS #56 1955-2,000TH MAJOR LEAGUE HIT PSA 8++ CENTERED BIN $30

Too funny. Was thinking of axing him this myself. It is bad enough people use this type of thing in verbal language but to print it out not once but twice? When did it become cool to sound illiterate?

Don't worry. Any press is good press. :rolleyes:

This product is going places.

That's right. Keep harping on an unrelated observation.:rolleyes:
In case you didnt notice he had no trouble selling out.

[B]This seems to be the modern equivalent to the old 'Scoreboard' boxes you would see whored out on HSN and QVC by Don West ...
You "could" pull a Honus Wagner T-206 and some "big" autos out of one of the boxes and all kinds of other old vintage cards...but mostly you just pulled 1988 Chris Sabo Cards..and Toot McGivens autos

THis seems to be the updated MUCH more expensive and dissapointing version of that.[/B]

Similar to Leaf Best of Baseball.

For a "straight shooter" he didn;t have 1 bad thing to say about the product.

It was funny he went on a mini Topps rant about 5 Star and one of the next cards he pulled was a Pujols Jumbo 5 star jersey. $20 card.

And just line BOB there were some very nice items. And some crap.

People paying $160 for a redemption that gives you entry into a drawing.

WOW.

Also some of his childish mouth breathing followers show their lack of education on Private Messages.
