    I think the cards look great, they look really cool. But, I don’t think I would pay $200 for 2-3 cards. I also don’t like how it’s an “off brand” product. But, I would say it looks really interesting. My curiosity might get the best of me.

    The cards look really nice. I think the Koji looks sick.

    I don’t know if they translate well to video. Maybe if I had one in hand I’d be more impressed.

    Neat looking product, haven’t seen 24karart cards since Action Packed.

    When are you going to give away the other box buster contest stuff

    Interesting concept. Good to see that the non-licensed companies are thinking outside-the-box (or in this case inside-the-box) when it comes to card design.

    I like them a lot. It’s a really neat product for those that can afford it. I like the fact they are different than your every day base cards.

    The cards look very nice, but for the price and also it’s not license, I don’t think it’s worth paying $200 a box for. Yet I’m sure these will sell out once it goes live, but it will fade after awhile.

    Normally, I would be amazed with the cards. They’re gold! However, that is a lot of money for a few cards. I’m sure they will keep value, but I am still not going to buy. Once again, price is greater than value. Cool break though!

    The product looks nice, with every card encased. I’m not sure I would like the checklist though, as I may not recognize some of the people.

    I love the packaging, really neat to see something different and the cards are unique in a good way.

    I think it is a really interesting product and it is nice to see that it is for charity.

    I’m sure this will sell out just because it is a unique product and the very limited US production run. Not bad, but I’m not going to spend that much on the product.

    Cool product, but not in my price range unfortunately. Glad to see companies trying something different, and I like that it is for charity.

    Is there a checklist available for this product with print runs? Also, even though your Stallone wasn’t signed, would you be able to send it off to get signed? I realize that when the product goes live, it would be signed, but that is the card I would be most interested in of the stuff was pulled from your boxes.

    I think that the design is balanced and pleasing to the eye. This higher price product might sell since it is for (Special Olympics Japan) charity, but I doubt buyers are looking for the 1/1 feature to add much value.

    Interesting concepet

  21. Posted Saturday October 12th, 2013 at 05:00 AM | Permalink

    It is a unique product, pretty cool idea and a nice presentation with the pack out. I have to say it is extremely rare to see something like this where a company is giving a portion of the proceeds to charity (the Japanese Special Olympics in this case) but $200 for two or three cards is difficult to put up. I wonder how they will do on the secondary market.

    I LOVE shadowboxes, auto’ed with a 24 carat gold border is INSANE.

    Great looking product. Especially those autographed Koji cards. I’d love to add that Uehara gold auto card to my collection. I also like the fact that it’s a charity fundraiser, but the price is pretty high.

    Those are some nice looking cards. Out of my price range for sure.

    Nice looking cards. Might max out my credit card, though.

    Wow – that must have been an awesome feeling to break that box and open with that beautiful gold Koji card! I think any collector would be honored to have any of those cards in their collection!

    Those are pretty great looking cards! Thanks for the contest!

    Nice looking stuff but way out of my price range. Uehara has been lights out for the Sox this year. The only way I’d end up with one of these cards is if I win it.

    I love oddball items, nice change from off the shelf cards. Gold, autos, special packaging, great idea! Pricing is pretty high, but for charity I might make an exception.

    Pretty cool product, I think they might be on to something with this as us collectors are always looking for something new and exciting.

    The Stallone gold card is AWESOME!!!!! I grew up on Rambo and rocky movies, I think this product is very cool, exciting not knowing what you might get in each box.

    Very cool Box Busters! I enjoy seeing and learning about new products, especially those from overseas. Some of the coolest cards in my collection are baseball cards from Japan, Cuba, and Venezuela. I’ve recently started adding European hockey cards as well. So thanks for a nice glimpse into another product.

    Surprised card companies don’t use 24K gold leaf more often. It’s not exactly expensive. Wasted so much money on packs of Action Packed back in the day and never pulled a 24K card. Pick ’em up now for cheap whenever I see them.

    Will Beckett be able to do any pricing on this set?
