Ouch... This is why I'm terrified to buy high end stuff it's my luck to pull $10 out of a $300-500 product... I hope your next high end box is way better! You deserve a big hit after that box! Grant

Certainly set collectors can do much better than to buy high high end, however the rest of us may not. Sure I took a bath on this box, or did I? Post this evening.

Well I was just kind of going off your opinion on the box. I hope you came out good. I'm just not familiar on what a good return would be on 07' Exquisite. It sounds like you got a suprise post to come Looking forward to that! I love watching breaks of this stuff when someone pulls a great hit just for the simple fact that Iv'e not been able to get my hands on anything high end. I'd love to open a box of the UD black football IV'e seen a few horrible breaks though for $600 + I suppose it's hit an miss. Grant

Make no mistake, I got hammered.

I'm not a good judge either on the high end stuff. I think all of the cards look cool, but I doubt you even came close to getting $200 worth out of it. I hope this doesn't sour you too much on high end in the future. I love watching people bust it and it's way cooler if it's someone you feel like you kind of know (if that makes any sense).

Also, take a good look, it might be a long time before we see Braylon Edwards with his hands on the ball again

I think I am going to go in a high end direction. Im just not a fan of spending $60 on a box and getting a sticker auto and a plain jersey unless I really like the cards. I will probably bust cases of A and G and such but not a box at a time anymore. First, you don't come close to a set. Second, the hits suck.

Even though my box was terrible, i still had more fun opening that, the national treasures and the prime cuts boxes (still one to go) than I did busting the boxes of A and G and Heritage.

As Gellman said, if you can't afford the stuff, don't bust it. I can afford it, I just have to decide how much I want to afford. I am going to test drive a vette tomorrow, which one would you choose. Vette or a case of cards?

Also, that is why I have put together the group breaks that I have. To give people a chance at some high end cards without even spending close to what a box costs. Do the math on my breaks, I think I lose about $20-$30 on each one, but I don't care because they are a lot of fun.

It looks like the Jarrett was supposed to be autographed. Tough break

I did the math on your breaks and at least on my end I appreciate your breaks! I suppsee I could hold out a little and buy the high end stuff or in fact just go buy it but I'm just trying to find a product worth doing so. Point is Your breaks Are awsome I hope we can keep them going although you losing anything on them is kind of wrong ( IMO ) but that's on you..... You Rock! Grant
