So blowout announced they were selling a lot of damage boxes in a single ebay lot. The auction is found here.
I have previously criticized Blowout for attempting to create artificial demand for such things as Topps Magic by making Twitter posts saying "topps magic is going to run, just sold 6 cases" followed by jacking up the price. 2009 Topps Finest baseball was the same thing. These were obvious attempts at money grabs. Its easy to see to from the box breaks in their forums how well that works. Not at all. Prices have since come way back down. Things like 2006-08 National Treasures Football have not come back down in price but also don't seem to be selling that well. Not sure how many cases they have laying around but it seems to be quite a few. Other shenanigans include all of the "sold out from the factory" announcements they do. Lame. Who knows what goes on behing the scenes with that to make that announcement.
Regardless, I don't really see this lot being worth a whole lot. Retail boxes, damaged boxes, some loose hobby packs. Probably quite a few damaged cards. Don't get me wrong, Blowout is being completely up front with the posting and the auction is what it is, but the lot looks to be a collage of crap. Thoughts?
