First this is not a knock on UD, this is an $80 product.
Having said that, wtf man? So in the box last night we pulled an upton auto jersey. Here are a couple sold on Ebay. $14 bucks back on $100+ box? Really? I picked ultimate for the box breaks because of the lack of high end baseball products, but who the hell pays $150 bucks for this shit? Really? Are people that desperate to open baseball products. I suppose I cant blame Blowout, Atlanta, DA, BigT, or anyone else for jacking up prices on Ultimate.
If people are willing to pay it then they deserve exactly what they get, a BJ Upton auto jersey apparently. This product has some great hits, Williams dubious jersey patches and others including clemente. Actually we didn't do too bad on those five boxes we broke some months ago. That schmidt auto, Ozzie/Eckersley, Porcello, etc were some pretty good hits, but talk about playing the one arm bandit.
The question is, who is buying this stuff? There has been a lack of these boxes selling on ebay. In the beginning there were boxes galore, now there is 1 that is currently in auction form. I see few if any boxes being broken on Blowout. Every once in a while someone will bust a case, but those breaks have dropped off. In fact most of the youtube breaks are a month old or older.
I don't know, I refuse to break sterling for our monthly breaks. I just won't do it. Tribute? Not a chance. Maybe I need to go with boxes of 2003 retired?
