Grade: C
Comments: My first C grade in a long while. I wouldn’t be happy with this box at current prices. My break has reached its half way point. I had two printing plates in the first half, so it feels like I'll hit another before I'm done, or maybe even a super. I'll be happy with a Darvish auto, though.

Mahtook was in 2010 Platinum as well. No one cared then, no one cares now...Anyway, that's a rough box but when your bad boxes have a blue relic/auto and a green auto, you're having a great break. Thanks for the entertainment, I'm watching some baseball and hitting refresh every half-hour or so. Big Grin

I was one box too early...actually hopefully I wasn't. I'd like to see a super refractor!

Case #3 Summary

Grade: A-
Comments: This is my weakest case so far, and I think it would probably grade a C at current prices. The Marte auto relic is a strong pull, but the best was obviously the atomic auto relic of Ryan Zimmerman in the final box. I’m thinking maybe $150-200 in cash value. BTW, I appear to have been way off in evaluating the Harper jumbo relic auto in case #2. The first one sold for $768, and it seems unlikely that the others will go for more. The BINs are set at 1299 and 1499, which means they expect to get about 500.
