Well, I'm super excited to say I just ordered 3 boxes of Halloween cards from Fright-Rags. Metal Fingers crossed I pull my holy grail Nick Castle autograph! Angel

Just to spread the word Fright-Rags is currently running a Black Friday sale. All their trading cards are discounted from 10% up to 50% off (the 50% off items are Saw packs and Ash vs Evil Dead packs). All of the sealed boxes and sets are 25% off with the exception of Halloween. The Halloween boxes, sets, and packs are 10% off. So I used that discount and got myself 3 boxes. My first ever card purchase from Fright-Rags. I can't wait! Dance

Silent Night, Deadly Night cards are now live. There are no sketches and just one autograph (Linnea Quigley). Every sealed wax box contains the Quigley auto.

Well that deal got even better. I received a Fright-Rags postcard ad in the mail with a 20% off discount code last weekend. And right now they're having their "Winter Break Blowout Sale" and all their trading cards are on sale. Saw packs were down to $4. I kept adding them to my cart to see how many they had left in stock and the total was 89. So I decided to buy them all. At $4 a pack and then my 20% code + tax & shipping the grand total came to $317.79. That's for 89 18-card base & 2-card sticker sets plus around 15 of the autographs give or take - as the stated odds are 1 in 6 packs. Not a bad deal at all I say. Smile

That's an interesting gamble assuming you're planning on moving the extra sets and autographs with the selling point that the company sold out and you're the source now. You can sell for $5/set and make money. Any autographs you don't want would be the gravy. I did something like that years ago in another hobby and came out ahead.

Good luck,

Jess

Thanks. I plan on keeping them unopened for as long as I can, while I figure out a game plan. I honestly want to keep all the autographs and a few mini-master sets, but all the other base/sticker sets I would like to move, once I decide to open them. I also have 14 sealed wax boxes Eek of their Halloween cards which are now sold out also, and they're all still unopened. If and when I do sit down and open everything I want to be prepared for the large amount of base sets I will have to deal with, and right now I'm not (prepared). I would need plenty of snap cases or small card boxes and then mailers or shipping boxes on top of that, and I don't have it in me to figure all that out at the moment. So sealed is where everything will stay, for now. Wink

Yeah, take some time to work out the math and figure out what you would want to keep. Watch what the boxes, base sets, and chase cards go for over the next few months. That will help you decide what to do. There's a temptation to open all of it just to see what sketches you get. Both sets have just a couple of autographs. You might make more than one mini-master set with both and then have a few base sets with whatever bonus cards you have leftover to sell. On the other hand a lot of people prefer to buy an unopened box so you might want to save a couple of those and enough that a collector would know there's still a good chance at an autograph.

I have bought good shipping boxes at a local sports card store and they're cheaper than those you can get at a shipping supply store. They're used for storage but they fold up into sturdy shipping boxes too. I've been getting them for at least 25 (maybe 30) years and used to get them for 60 cents but they're more like $1-1.25 now - still a decent deal. I buy the boxes that are marked "300" and "400." You would want the one that holds one or more base sets plus some singles plus padding but not too big because then you're paying more postage than you need to. I've never had a problem with a bubble mailer but there's always a chance of a plastic box getting crushed in shipment.
