[QUOTE=nikpounder;3949231]There was a mention of "rules" for this product earlier and I checked the sponsoring company's website. It mentions:

[I]"As well giving you a shot to be listed on the “Top 10 Leader Board” listed daily on [url=http://www.beckett.com]Sports Cards Price Guide Subscriptions, Values, Trading, Organize | Beckett.com[/url] which will be updated weekly"[/I]

and

[I]"While an overall leader board will be kept for the Grand Prize Award Ceremony on www.beckett.com."[/I]

Doesn't that sound like Beckett.com is endorsing this product?[/QUOTE]

Not necessarily. If the company that shall not be named is simply buying advertising, then Beckett is not "endorsing" the product. Similar to how anybody can buy advertising on CNBC (stock tip scams, penis enlargement pills, gambling "edge" websites), but CNBC is by no means endorsing the product.

Who knows - I could be wrong - maybe Beckett is on board here. Just going with the paranoia at this point...

[QUOTE=Friarg;3949347]No - it sounds like they plan to use the Beckett forum boards to keep their tally..and so what if some people misread that and think there working with Beckett? Nothing shady there, right? :)![/QUOTE]

LOL. If they are really using a forum to tally the points, that is truly shady.

[QUOTE=mgsenny;3948804]Guys please just stop. I'm just defending my breakers and their decisions so if they decide to not break this, then I'll agree with them on that. I mentioned that already but I guess you guys and your mob mentality was stuck in the mindset that we need to bash this kid for everything he's worth because he doesn't agree with us.[/QUOTE]

you guys WAS stuck, i can't take it anymore, why can people not understand singular and plural anymore? i'm only 30, you can't tell me i'm getting so old blah blah, go learn the difference, it's not hard, you learn it in 3rd grade

Jenkinssssss 01-04-2013 12:42 AM

Is mgsenny the retarded cousin of sportscardtheory or the other way around?

Anyone who spends a dime on this product hates money, which I respect if you can afford to be raci$t.

hitman1116 01-04-2013 12:43 AM

I also wouldn't trust a product that pretty much is geared only to be a group break. People get "slots" that are way over priced for what is in there and the slots get randomed based on when the payment gets sent. While I think card companies take into account the aspect of group breaking, this is really the first "product" to be set up to only be a group break product, from the way they introduced the product to people, to the pricing of the boxes, to the design of the product.

Also anyone who would watch the breaks on blogtv and go with boomo is an idiot. You're telling me over all the great breakers on blogtv that boomo was the best? It seems like they were like well who is the least likely to fuss over the product being terrible, and who wouldn't have standards for their clients.

And of course this product was "rushed". Topps 5 Star Baseball was released in like Mid-November right? That means that over the past month and a half they were still adding cards to the boxes. I wouldn't be happy with any of those boxes and a redemption for a chance of winning a drawing is about as worthless as the paper I wipe my butt with.

Sounds like a certain someone on that certain site might be up in the air about that certain product lol...

"i will do more if people want to buy it, but the tickets left a bad taste and I think the company needs to eliminate them.
No one would complain if they just eat those and charge a few hundred less per case. Otherwise, they may not be selling
all that much of this thru the case route."

Probably a better chance getting your money back on that Arizona beach front property instead of those cards. :devil:

I don't need Google maps to know that's as fake as it gets. Maybe they've changed it since then, but I have no interest in giving them another page hit.[/QUOTE]
It has been updated. Is that the wife beater behind bars?

armyatc22 01-04-2013 07:52 AM

Who is LCB? Never heard of them

The best online blog buster is Chad hands down

Like someone said above if you bust this stuff after seeing and hearing what came out of it already your just retarded

Side note I bet this LCB will have a lot more viewers tonight and for some reason I have a feeling that the boxes they open are going to have a lot more nicer hits

Bob Loblaw 01-04-2013 07:55 AM

For what it's worth, this product violates the "Grab Bag/Lottery" laws that most states have enforced.

I doubt anything will come of it, but it is technically illegal to produce a product such as this.

100% correct. Happens all the time, so must not be enforced. Does not matter who is bustingthe product. For the cost ... its not worth it in my eyes. As for people trying to bring more hype to the people busting this stuff, that there is no way they would bust it if it was a scam is a joke in my eyes. Only thing the people busting it care about is making money off the people willing to over spend on the chances of a hit. At least with Topps you know what cards are in the product. No sell sheet, no way in hell I would touch it. Plus someone mentioned what if they only sell a certain amount... does the auctions still happen?

Bob Loblaw 01-04-2013 08:46 AM

I'm pretty srue that other than the three folks who wound up with the Jackie auto, Ruth 1/1 GU, and Arod bat, no one believes that this was a good idea to bust.

Yeah and you also learn the correct rules of capitalization in like first grade, but who's keeping track? What about comma splicing? I know that may be a bit advanced for you; 5th grade stuff right there.
