so like a $25 grab bag might be book valued at say 30...cant remember the exact numbers.
I bought a cheap one before to try out and got some decent stuff.

I would be very mad if that was what I got from one of those. But again its a grab bag, grab bags usually consist of cards that won't sell by themselves on the secondary market so they are marketed with a chance to get something great to get people to buy their junk. I always stay away from grab bags like that because I just don't believe that anyone gives away good stuff in em.

its a gamble like anything else. that is just a particularly bad low end if that is the low end ouch

also, that 100 dollars of bv better not have more than 50 cards
if you buy a grab bag, get less than 4x's bv, get less than 2 dollars per card average: you have been ripped off
not always true, thank you.
i mean, im not lottering my stuff off. i would never - NEVER - tell someone: buy 10 dollars of lots, and you MIGHT get a mantle rookie. thats bogus
but i have given out LOTS of cards worth 500-2500 dollars each

arguably the best card-piazza lat sold for $2.75,national treasures is (expensive) junk with no logo,insignias,licensing any resemblance to mlb (sparky is cool though),mathews is damaged,better hope the no namer prospect makes it big -lol
sorry ,but just my opinion

You get 2 auto, 2 relic and a whole bunch of mini, SP and base cards, and a box loader. Even if you get 2 low end relic and 2 low end autos, the rest of the product brings you up to at least 80%. You still have the "gamble" of getting a big hit, but you never get totally ripped off, IMO.
