And I'm pretty sure there's some way you can make your money back with that lot, whether it be through trade, selling to one of those companies who make the mixed boxes, or making mixed boxes of your own (100 cards for $1 + shipping).

And as you previously said, the OCD side of me is driving me nuts - sleeved, sorted, ORGd. I need to drop about $2500 just on sleeves to get this the way I really want it lol
