My problem with this years release compared to last years is that with a case purchase I won't get a 1/4 of the base set. I am a huge boxing fan especially the boys who I grew Up with, foreman, frazier, ali. I paid big money for ringside part 1 and would do it again except...
Base wise I only get 24 /100 assuming no duplicates
Last year in a 10 box case I got the entire base set all 100 cards and maybe 24 or so turkey red inserts
While I find this a very enticing hit wise it lacks the Hitman Hearns, Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard and George Foreman appeal that woudlve made it a multiple case buy for me. Last year we had Holmes, ali, frazier, Whitaker, jones, cooney and All I kept thinking was is Dr Price saved some great ones for this next release but.. after reviewing the checklist...
Evander never thrilled me, Roberto was always the enemy Not that I didnt love him, mercer and Toney ushered the fall of the heavyweight division If I had all the money I spent on pay per views watching Sugar Ray, Chavez, Arguello, Hearns, Foreman and even Riddick Bowe later Id be wealthy beyond belief.. Where are those guys?. Heck Pacquiao wouldve made me buy a case!
At the present I am going to take a wait and see approach to the market before I commit any money!
