Nope, but the return is much better than the other junk out. Just stay away from "best of"

I personally love rookie retro. A lot of nice stuff comes out of it. But there are some low end cards that come out.

True, but the low end cards usually have a SV of around $40-50. That's a while heck of a lot better than most products. Their "Best of" stuff is horrid though.

It is certainly a feast or famine situation. I would never buy a single box but cases seem to be pretty good value.

Yeah, I know it's hard to do but try to stay away from loose boxes, the case at my shop had a 2010 Chrome 9.5 orange Wil Myers auto(sold for $860) and the other 4 boxes in the case were a Finest Kobe RC(sold for $79), an Ovechkin Young Guns RC(sold for $74), Tony Gwynn fleer psa auto (sold for $43) and a Peyton Manning Chrome RC (sold for $73). Those other 4 boxes returned $269 and they cost $916 to open!

Per Brian Gray:

Quote:
To clarify, the sports represented include:
Baseball
Football
Basketball
Hockey
Boxing (Tyson, Ali only)
Golf (only Top names)
Wrestling (quality vintage only)
MMA (only Bones Jones and aldo)
Olympics (1 TOTAL LOLO CARD and Phelps)

Other sports was VERY limited. Out of this product over 99% of all cards were from 4 major sports.

So the total return excluding the leaf singles was $1129? With Leaf sales the case was very near breaking even.

I've seen a few hockey cards pulled from this but they were mostly lower end stuff.
