Panini Preferred Case too risky? - htowntigger - 05-15-2012 02:05 PM

Hey everyone, I wanted to ask what you guys thought about Panini Preperred? I opened a few boxes myself and didn't do all that great... but I'm trying to complete the Olajuwon Rainbow in this set and most of the ones I need are very short print. I've been keeping an eye on it, see if it goes down in price, maybe buy a case when it goes down a bit more. Too risky?

For your goal, yeah, too risky. Hold that cash and keep your eyes open. I like the product (at least the look) and I don't care about ROI, but I'd say just wait for the card to pop up.

If it were me, Id wait for the Fleer Retro. I want a case soooooo badly!

That's not going to help him with his Preferred Olajuwan quest. Smile

For that goal you're way better off scouring the 'net for singles. The boxes have come down though, and the cases as well. Most sites have them for around $175 already down from the initial $200. When a couple more products come out they will probably dip even a little further, so if you still want a case I'd wait til it's not the newest thing and prices drop even more!

Id rather have any Olajuwan in the Retro set. What I meant was, buy the singles of Preffered, and buy a case of Retro.

Lol, the funny thing is that I am getting a case of the Fleer Retro : P I think if it goes down to under $1500, I may take a chance on it, after all those Shilouette patches are sick! I don't know if the reason I haven't found the rest of the Olajuwons I need is because all are redemptions, think they'll start popping up once they start redeeming them.

Yeah, I've thought about that too! I just want to open a case, I guess!

Yeah if I were gonna pick up a new case I'd probably go with Elite Black too, so much cheaper now, better looking cards too.
