    I got my boxes today from Black Friday (I was surprised to get them this fast). I got lucky and was able to get the 2005 LCM for 39.99 the first time BO put them up and called it quits because I had a few projects to get don on the house. Here's the breaks:

    Barry Sanders GU #'d 35/100


    And the last hit.....

    THERE WASN'T ONE!

    This is the second order in a row I got shorted a hit in a box from Blowout. I wrote them an email explaining I've gotten shorted hits in back-to-back orders but I doubt they'll compensate me. I'm sure they have some kind of "contact the manufacturer for missing content" policy. It could have been worse - I could have paid full price instead of the sale price. Thanks for the read & good luck with your breaks.

    I trade by book value & buy/sell by sell value but always factor in common sense. Collecting David Wright, Derek Jeter, Ben Roethlisberger & Hines Ward.

    Painini has been shorting hits for years, but again, who knows with the easy ability to re-seal products these days! The Sanders is very nice, and again it is always a gamble!

    Thanks guys. Of course it's always a gamble. However, there's a big difference in breaking a box that has the advertised contents and they're not superstars and breaking a box that doesn't have the advertised content (mine happened to be the auto). If you're paying for a certain amount of content it should be in the product. The manufacturers should honor the QA burps in their products event if it's beyond a year after the release AND there shouldn't be an expiration on ANY redemptions IMO. That's where the whole missing hits/redemption expiration policies need to change. I don't do as much box breaking as I have in the past because of it. I rarely break products this old. I wasn't collecting in 2005 and decided to take a flyer on a product that has autos of guys I PC and thought $40 for a box that's usually $90 - $100 was worth it. As desertdogg wrote, the Sanders GU is a nice pull so it wasn't a total loss. Anyway, Blowout Cards addressed it. They seem to care about their customers (unlike the card manufacturers) so thank you Blowout Cards.
