More power to you man it is all about the fun. I buy retail all the time just because I don't want to wait for boxes to come in and I get the itch. Nice hits and congrats!!

They restocked for the kids!

It was nice to get some PC cards (not much). Made $100 BEFORE finding the Manny, so that was nice too .

NO WONDER THE TALLADEGA WALMART NEVER HAS ANYTHING GOOD!

**Just kidding, nice to see a local guy on the forum. I use to go to that Wal-Mart every Saturday lol ( I assume you're in Talladega by your username).

Everyone hating on series 1 retail must not realize how well the Jeter inserts are doing. He almost got the set, the set is selling for like 80 bucks. Machado SSP, other SPs, Jeter Gold, tons of good base rookies I'm sure.. Not a bad break for the money at all.

No, OP, this was all a terrible decision. Just terrible. Rethink your life.

I live by Talladega but this was in Alabaster.

I have always done well selling base singles when the product is new. Granted, I typically spend $100 or $150 on retail . As I mentioned before, when the wife says, "do it." You listen.

I know y'all said leave some for the kids but I'm the am the only one themats purchased any series 1 at the store I work at with exception of one blaster box. No one buys Flagship baseball cards aren't popular where I live at. Chrome sells, as does a few of the others but unless it's Pokémon forget it.

Default Don't knock retail!!

I pulled a Ruth relic /3 from a DK retail blaster about a year ago. Last summer, pulled a Bryant auto /75 from a case of '15 Elite retail blaster boxes.

Don't be hatin' on retail....yes, the "good stuff" is few and far between with it, but the "monster" pulls ARE out there.....
