well, most of it anyway...

DACW put those blasters on clearance again, so I snagged another 30 blasters of 2012 Heroes & Legends, the plan is just to open the base/insert packs and flip the 'hot' packs..

through just about a month of being listed, ive sold 51 cards from the previous 60 blasters, only 3 were relics...I figure with the 30 boxes I should be able to complete a couple more insert sets, plus ill do subsets of the Presidents, the Olympians, the Astronauts, and the Tuskegee Airmen, as I have been unsuccessful in flipping full sets, but people are paying more on other sets (im a hawk to see how this stuff sells)...hopefully someone will make a run on my stuff and I can turn profitable on this stuff...

needed another case of toploaders, which is why I was poking around the site, also snagged another 2k penny sleeves and a box of 2014 Topps Winter Olympics which is on sale...have yet to see a blaster at my walmart, so I figured id go hobby, its 2 relics and an auto, so hoping for a Wagner or Gold auto, then ill finally get some base of the girls as well, or should at least get base of them...

should be here Friday...hopefully there is some nice stuff in there...figure I can get about $7 per hit pack, ill have them up at $10 BIN/BO and see what I can get, figure anything over $7.10 per pack will pay for the blaster (after fees), which would net me a couple inserts and the base out of the blaster as potential profit...

there haven't been many nice lots on eBay of late, I had 2 decent ones come in last week, but this week the best ive bought is 9 cards, so that is pretty pathetic, at least by my buying standards...

yeah, hopefully something good in there...

I did sell 6 more H&L base cards today, so I did get to my 'tipping point' for what I wanted before buying more, which was $90 in sales (pre fee) the first cycle...the initial 30 day listing cycle ends tomorrow so maybe some more offers will come in...sucks that the current promo is the auction only, makes that free month of a store tempting since I have over 200 H&L listings, most of which have quantity over 1 (124 base cards + a ton of inserts), and that number is sure to grow tomorrow with the 30 blasters yielding somewhere around 100 inserts, so the base card I sold out of, I should get at least 10 of (32 through first 60 boxes)...

I could hold off on my multiples listings, open a store for 28 days, cycle the multiples twice on 10 day listings, but that might take me out of the free listing pool on the others, and the free store only nets 2500 listings...

but the rest of my paypal will be gone tomorrow as one of the guys I frequent has a bunch of stuff ending tonight where ill end up winning under $0.70 per auto dlvd, there are a couple quick movers in the lots, but mostly its a bunch of stuff that will sit for months...
