Thread: Big Retail Hit

  1. #1

    Big Retail Hit

    Went out today hoping to find a Magic and Prizm blasters, as I wanted to give those a try.

    Found a Magic blaster at Meijer's, but no Prizm.
    Nothing too noteworthy in that - An Enchantment Griffin insert and Luck RC, being the best hits.

    Went to Target, still no Prizm blasters, but they did have a couple boxes of loose packs. I really wanted to check the product out, so I grabbed 6 packs in the box that looked less rummaged through, against what I thought was my better judgement.




    The last pack had this:







    I was excited thinking it was a $30-40 card, thrilled it seems to be worth quite a bit more.
    Apparently I should buy all my cards at that Target, this is my second time buying cards there - The first time I bought Chrome blasters, filled with color, an auto and a Tannehill red refractor (PC) lol



    Thanks for looking!
    And I did have a question - I'm high on Luck (as most are) so I figured I'd keep any pulls of his this year, but these seem to be getting a great price for a non-auto, retail parallel. Do you think these have much room for growth, or would it be silly to not sell now while they seem pretty hot? Thanks in advance if anyone shares their thoughts on this.

    Sell now,awesome hit but I don't think the price will ever be better for prizm than it is now.
    Do something nice for someone everyday, it will pay off in the long run.

    Thanks for the advice.
    That was what I was thinking, but I need a few nudges.
    I really love to keep everything, or I'd love to keep everything, but I also don't have much free money, so I've had to get myself in the mindset that selling allows me to pick up nicer PC cards, or allows me to buy more boxes.

    And I had this post on another site - Apparently Prizm didn't have blasters, so that's why I couldn't find any.

    I tried 4 packs yesterday,got skunked if they're still there I'll try 6 more today and call it quits.I hardly sell anything either but it is nice to know if I ever needed some money I have enough decent cards to raise it.

    Sell now always and don't look back. Rookies almost always drop the next year in price. Take the sure thing.

    Nice card! I agree with everyone else that now is the time to move it for the most money.
