I recently watcher Topher over at Crackin' Wax do a Charity Case Break of Triple Threads. I wasn't involved in the break because the buy in was a bit steep for me to spend all at one time. As the break progressed I was immediately sick at my stomach that I didn't buy the Rangers.
Topher pulled a Jurickson Profar Jumbo Relic Book Card #1/3 AND a Mike Olt Autographed Triple Relic Plate White Whale #1/1. Unbelievable!! At least for me it would have been.
The samd night I watched that video, I was perusing EBay and came across an auction for the Rangers slot in a Triple Threads three box break that was ending in mere minutes. I jumped in and made the highest bid and waited patiently for the break to start.
About 20 minutes and three boxes later, I was the proud owner of this card:
That's a $22.49 base card of one Yu Darvish. Sweet right? I know box/case breaks are a gamble, but I was very surprised not to get even a basic "hit" from the break. The Rangers have the 3rd most hits in the product and are therefore usually well represented in the breaks.
I guess one good thing about this lesson is I haven't jumped in on any more case breaks. I guess I could look at it this way. How many blasters have I opened and gotten nothing I really wanted. (At least those things provide trade bait!)
Oh well, live and learn I guess.
