hahaha, right after posting how I'd stop spending money, I go on BO's sales forum and see a Stewart 2010 SPX panther logo patch posted for sale, clearly buying it since I have these two cards as well, want any between Stew, Smitty, DWill in that set with the patches from the panther head logo

Question for mainly tuka and jason, but where do you guys buy from online? I mostly just browse ebay, but would love to find somewhere else. My bank account may not like it, but I love some of the cards you guys find.

So how does "pulling" cards work? You buy a box for like $20 bucks and there might be 2 cards of value in it? Do people do this to consistently turn a profit or are they just recouping some money for the players they do not like?

I buy 90% of my cards from Ebay that is simply the best and secure way to buy...I also go to football card message boards and buy there as well like SCF Sports Card Forums

A box sells from 80- $500 a box some people make money off doing this but most lose in the long run but being a collector you're willing to take that risk. Most box breakers sell the unwanted cards on Ebay that's when I come in...

I actually just made my first purchase from that site the other night, picked up a few nice Stew patches, 2 base cards for my Arizona PC, and then a bunch of Biakabutuka cards that I've been wanting from there for a while but didn't want to pay $4 shipping for a few $1 cards.

Kinda cool that up to 10 cards is $3.99 shipping though, I made offers on the 2 Stew cards and then figured I'd pick up 8 other cheapie cards and not have to pay for shipping.

Like Jason said, mostly get all my stuff from ebay and the forums, he uses SCF, I tend to stick on blowout's forum (a site that sells boxes), then there is checkoutmycards.com and then going to local shows and stores.

And trust me, my bank account doesn't like some of the cards I find either, but they're too nice for me to pass up at times

Stay away from busting boxes, I swear it was the best and worst thing that I could have ever got into. It got me back into cards, so I love it for that, but I've spent so much freaking damn money on breaking boxes and most of the time you get a 1/4 of what you spent on it in sales, and then are left with just boring base cards.

Most boxes are in the $100-150 range and you'll get anywhere from 1-4 "hits" per box, a lot of times those are $5-10 per hit, but sometimes you get lucky and pull a big one. I've pulled like 4 cards that I've sold for $200 or more and have another few in the $50-150 range, but the majority are $20 or less

Just saw you asked how much those were going for

I picked up the Smitty in a trade with one of the stores in my area, can't remember what I got that Stewart for, and I got the one last night for $6 dlvd, which seems about right, if not a few bucks less than it's worth since it's a logo patch

My newest pickups, and the picture doesn't come close to doing the shadow box justice

Decided to make a stop in at my local card store today, and the kid working was all excited when I got in there, I could tell he had something to show me, didn't expect him to pull out this perfect pairing for my logo patch with a nice dirt stain on it.

He also found the Lane auto in the same big box of cards he said hadn't been gone through in a long time, the others showed up in the mail today
