I don't buy high end stuff. Heck, I don't even buy middle of the road stuff unless I can get it in blaster at Wal-mart or Target. I don't need the disappointment a high end product can deliver when I can get the same disappointment in a blaster at a fraction of the price.
I am a huge fan of other people taking the depreciation hit when they buy high end boxes. As of right now, a "box" of 2012 Topps Museum Collection will set you back $229.95 on Blowout. That gets you 4 packs, with 5 cards in each pack. Sure, if you get really, really lucky, you can hit something amazing, but more than likely you're going to kick yourself in the ass after you've spent 30 seconds ripping open those 4 packs.
Of course, if you pull a card like this and you're willing to sell it for a great big fat loss, I'm your guy. I picked this up for a song off Blowout. It's the only card I bought and as much as I like it, I'd still be ticked if I paid $230 for a pack and this came out. Do you know how many actual Rangers games I can go to for $230? Plenty, that's how many. For the price I paid, I'm very happy to have added this card to my collection.
By the way, I'm in the middle of my second 8 hour shift of the holiday. Don't be surprised if you see some rambling post later this evening. That is if the keyboard doesn't short out when I start drooling on it...
