Case #10, Box #9

Blue /499: Andrew Brown
Blue /499: Hunter Mercado-Hood
Blue refractor /199: Scott Woodward
Auto: Taylor Jungmann

Grade: D-
Comments: Ouch. Hard to believe Jose Fernandez is holding up. If he can hang on for three more boxes, natejeffries is our winner due to the tiebreak. Doesn’t seem likely, but there are still a few base autos I haven’t pulled during the contest, and three refractor autos would seal the deal. (I’m expecting one of the remaining boxes to have a huge pull, maybe an orange refractor auto.)

Case #10, Box #10

Blue /499: Josh Judy
Blue /499: Drew Gagnon
Blue refractor /199: James Harris
Auto: Michael Fulmer

Grade: D-
Comments: This has turned into a brutal case. Need something huge in one of the final two boxes. Michael Fulmer was one of the three prospect autos I hadn’t yet pulled during the contest, so Fernandez and natejeffries still lead. Quite possible the last two autos will be parallels, but it seems more likely that one of the two remaining autos will be base. Here we go – good luck!

Case #10, Box #11

Blue /499: Kevin Whelan
Gold refractor /50: Anthony Bass
Auto: Trevor Bauer
Refractor USA auto /199: Nick Ciuffo

Grade: A
Comments: Nice box. Not the stand up and shout kind of box I was hoping for, but I’ll take it. How about one more like this to finish the break? Trevor Bauer sneaked to the top of the leaderboard with just one box remaining. But because nobody picked him, the tiebreak comes into play and natejeffries is still the man of the moment. Considering the likelihood this next auto is a parallel it looks to me like nj’s contest to lose right now. Good luck!

Case #10 Summary

Grade: D+
Comments: I had three boxes with good value, but none were of high enough value to counterweight the duds. You really need some huge hits eventually to get adequate return on the outlay. The two Bauers in the final two boxes – a base and a refractor – were the biggest hits of the case.

10 Case Break Summary

Grade: C
Comments: Overall I got what I paid for, though it was spread out pretty variably across the cases. I had an A case, a B case, a B- case, 3 Cs, one C-, two D+s and one D. The two best cases were characterized by purple refractor autos, but if I hadn’t hit them I’d probably still conclude that this was an average break overall. I paid $51 per box delivered, and I think the value per box is currently right around $52. If the price ever drops below $48 I would consider this product a *must buy*; there are plenty of minor hits and there’s plenty of potential for giant scores. Conversely, I don’t think anyone should pay more than $57 for a box. I think you’re safer buying a box from an unopened case, as there is substantial negative correlation between boxes within a case.

Contests: Congratulations to natejeffries, the winner of my $60 shopping spree contest. Although nobody picked Trevor Bauer as the most frequently appearing base auto, nj had a very good prediction for last week’s Denver-New England game. You may give thanks unto Lord Tebow for your victory, nate. I’ll PM you with details for your spree. Anti-congratulations to kelbysdaddy, whose pick, Blake Snell did not appear at all as a base auto within the last six cases. For his ineptitude, he wins a Medium Priority Mail box stuffed with early 1990s wax. The three BCW-550 boxes in which they are lovingly housed are worth 10 times more than the cards. Well done, sir! I’ll PM you to get your address – no dodging me! Finally, repeated congratulations to telattt, who FINALLY gets to pick out his five autos from the break. I’ll PM you with your options.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by with the words of encouragement. I hope it was interesting. I plan on busting some 2011 Sterling at some point, but I haven’t decided when. Definitely need to do some sorting and cleaning before I can even think about it. Enjoy the playoffs!

Nathan

Wow - what a nailbiter. I sweated out that whole last case. Thanks a lot Nate and Tebow.

Those gold refractors are sweet too. Congratulations on the break Nate. I get a real kick out of watching these breaks. I liked the look of this product. You have a whole lot of prospects to look out for now.
