Disappointment and surprise are two adjectives I would use to describe the sales results on these two boxes. I was relieved I listened to my intuition on not breaking a case as that could have been absolutely brutal. The card designs themselves were fun but the overall value per box left much to be desired.
Out of two boxes that retail for $135 a box….not one card sold for more than $20! You can catch the break here and in my opinion the two coolest cards (O.J. Mayo Prime Patch & Kyrie Irvining Die Cut Gold /10) sold pretty cheap.
|Box #||SRP||Sold||Profit/Loss||Key Sales|
|1||$135||$57||-$78||Kyrie Irving Gold/10 $20, Robert Parish /15 Auto $6, Teague/10 $5, Draft #10 $18|
|2||$135||$38||-$97||O.J. Mayo Prime Patch $20, Draft #13 ($10)|
Two of the autographs I pulled didn’t even sell (i.e. Kenyon Martin which I listed for $2 and Spud Webb which I listed at $5). It just doesn’t seem the hype or demand is/was there for this product.
The Draft Redemption cards actually sold for much higher than I thought. Getting $18 for the 10th pick in the draft (i.e. not knowing who it will be) seemed excessive….but not even those surprise sales could save me as I ended up losing $175 on the two box break for an ROI of -65%.
Oh well…they can’t all be good….on the to the next break & Catch you next time!
