Default Worst case of NT? No Vertical RPA

Decided to bust a case of National Treasures and I'm not sure I've seen a case that hasn't had a Vertical RPA in a case.....until mine. The dry train continues....

Here are the best hits from worst to best:

* Nikola Jokic Clutch Factor Auto Patch #'d 14/25
* Magic Johnson Signature Auto #'d 21/25
* Dennis Rodman All Decade Auto Jersey #'d 43/49
* Chris Paul Lasting Legacies Auto Patch #'d 1/10
* Jordan Bell Rookie Patch Auto Horizontal /49 (redemption)
* Wesley Iwundu Rookie Patch Auto Horizontal #''d 24/49
* Frank Ntilikina Logoman #'d 5/5



This may be the end of busting boxes/cases for me. Just doesn't make sense to lose money over and over and over.

Thanks for the look

I got a case last year and it was awful. Best card was a Stockton auto laundry tag auto 3/5. 3 rpas Diallo, Hernangomez and Papagiannis only one was vertical. All the rest of the case was junk. Oh actually there was a melo base emerald also. lol.....just rubbish

I dunno why people bust this at 2x MSRP and expect there to be that value. There are literally 2 players whose RPAs can pay for a case. Hit a A lonzo Ball? Great. You’re still 1500 behind. Nuts to me.

Agreed. I got caught up in the hype as it looked like everyone was getting incredible stuff out of their cases. I luckily didn't pay the going rate for the case as I got in early but still going to be on the losing end.

It's also nice to post the bad breaks so folks can realize what you will normally get out of a box/case.

A logoman of a collectible rookie doesnít save this case? Thatís an awesome hit isnít it?

Jordan has a financial stake in Upper Deck. He will not be leaving.

I broke a worse case than this. Seriously, it was absolute DOGSH1T!!!

and mine did have 2 vertical RPA's. Josh Jackson (redemption) and Juwan Evans.

I'll have to post it up for people to recoil in horror at it.

I am guessing you paid way more than 2k ( the actual MSRP ) for 4 box NT case

OP, i feel your pain
But if this was a 2k case, it s not a horrible case since you hit a logoman of a lottery pick rookie
I m pretty sure many would have done way worse than this
Magic johnson, kawhi, AD , kyrie - sticker autos are considered ($500-1000) box hit now

So true...Cases are mainly a huge joke. People are doing crazy caus of the release from a new product, but fact is...maybe 1/10 case give the money value back (maybe less than 1/10!? I'm not sure...).
Last year i busted one box from Noir 16/17 and pulled an Ingram patch Au./35. I bough the Noir box for something between 400-500$...but you can buy the Ingram alone for 90-110$. So yes, panini is just playing a game...and the play will continue as long as enough "slaves" are ready to play that game...

Realy??? AD and Kyrie okay...but Magic and Kawhi (if not 1of1) are only side-hits for me...

I agree that NT is way overpriced, but that Frank Logoman is sweet. Easily a $1k card. That's better most all vertical RPA's you could pull. I've certainly seen much worse cases.

It's easy to get caught up in it, you're not the only one. I busted a bunch of optic and prizm recently, got a couple cool hits in Prizm, but Optic was brutal.

Bottom line - never bust wax expecting a profit. It's entertainment only. Everyone loses in the long run if they break enough. You might hit a big box or case and do well, but rest assured you'll hit plenty of dry spells in between.

Oh and don't get caught up in reading the winners posted here on blowout. People generally post their good breaks, not all their bad ones.

I'm really confused as to what people are expecting in these cases. You guys pulled a 2nd tier rookie logoman and a top tier NT RPA and you think it's a bad break???

What would qualify as a good break? Mitchell and Tatum and that's it?
