Default Boomo is a genius

I think he is literally going to double his money if not more on these pre-sale lots. People are just throwing math out the window. Can I get all these bidders to play some poker with me.

Really? I find most lots are going to sell under value.

He has to open and sort FIFTY cases. I don't care what kind of profit he might make, I don't think even Houdini is stupid enough to do that. On second thought......

Is this guy legit? I am actually looking at one lot that seems to be a pretty decent value, but I don't trust group breaks on EBay.

I seen some shady stuff including shilling by a co signer. Wasn't until he was called out that he had a well planned story.

How do you open 50 cases unless you live in mom's basement and dont work? And she fronts the cash.

He could be rich and decide to take a few vacation days off from work, pretty simple explanation.

He just buys them on credit and has 30 days to pay. Most lots will sell for less than value. Of course the big names are being overpaid for but it all evens out in the end.

for as many lots as you want, but it would really suck if you only bought one. I would do it 5 or 6 dollars and then for every additional lot one 1 or 2 dollars per lot.

If you read his description, he states he will reduce shipping if you only win one lot, but that itse asker to straight charge 12.95 each and free combined shipping so that he doesn't have to do hundreds of invoices for people who buy multiples

I hope he does well but runnin this on eBay might backfire. Interesting idea and I hope it goes off with no issues. That's a ton of work to make his deadlines he set.

He needs to open the cards on camera and hand them off camera to people to collate them immediately.

he doesnt show EVERY card on camera & anyone that challenges him on it just gets barked at. he's setting himself up for disaster. what is stopping a buyer from filing a claim & getting their money back on lots that dont get big pulls?

"i didnt see every card pulled" will win a claim every time.

Really? If he doesnt open all on camera this is a farce.

I think this may end up being excellent value for buyers who are interested in base/chrome lots in quantity. Assuming none of the base and chrome cards (nonrefractors) are SP'd, you can do the math and know how many cards you should expect. The high end autos/low numbered refractors would be easier to do shady things with.
