RE: question for board
I have only used DA cardworld for the most part and have been happy most of the time.
But I also do not expect to get a case hit in every box I buy.

RE: question for board
Those are both very solid And reputable sites, have ordered from both... If you're just looking for a change in luck there are members here who swear by steelcitycollectibles... Same odds of a hot/cold box as the other two though

It's really just luck of the draw!
Go for the best price and free shipping. The cards are all the same with the same odds.
Blowout and DA and DCS and SteelCity have all been great. Any given day, one out sales the other depending on the product. I've probably done most/best with Blowout. Dave & Adam's a close second.

RE: question for board
I did a numbers crunch, and the order of best value on average came out like this:
1) Steel City (lowest prices and free shipping over $25)
2) Blowout (equally lowest prices but free shipping only over $150)
3) ATL Sports cards (Low prices but poor selection)
4) DA Card World (Higher prices)
5) Ebay (Higher prices in general due to Ebay fees)

If you're trying to make a decision based on whether you got good hits or not, it doesn't matter where you get them from. That's like the guy who claims he has better luck at one casino than the one next door when they both have the same machines and same odds. If you're upset that you aren't getting good "hits" then you're in this for the wrong reason.

I used to get from Dacardworld, but lately I have been getting from Steel city. I try to mix my purchase and not get everything from the same place.

RE: question for board
Does blowout cards send outside of North America?

I am into collecting Charles Barkley, Steve Nash and Jason Kidd. I alos will collect Goldy.
Right now most cards are not in the trade section, but in my org, so look there first to see what I have and then PM me an offer and if accepted I will move it to the trade section, ready to be traded.

RE: question for board
I may be backing off Steel City. Their biggest advantage was that they offered free shipping over $25, but it looks like they raised it to $100. I guess that makes it a toss up with Blowout since BO has more selection, faster shipping and slightly better prices. Actually, this might make Ebay a better option for single boxes if you don't want to buy $100+ worth of cards.
