Well, I was dumb enough to get up at 5 am to log onto Blowout Cards' sale.

Right at its starting time, the server was overloaded. However, it came back after a few minutes.

Then the first "Super Deal" came up--2007 Contenders Football for $29.99!

That shut down my access to the site for 20 minutes! (Didn't get it laugh.gif )

Dave and Adams' servers have been overloaded as well, but except for 2010/11 National Treasures Basketball, all their other deals are still available.

So far, I've picked up the following from Blowout:

2007 Leaf Rookies & Stars Football box $49.99

2010 Topps Football Hobby Box $ 27.99

2008 Uppder Deck Draft Edition Football $ 39.99

2007 Donruss Elite Football $49.99

2011 Topps Chrome Football $79.99 (the only one of the "Super Deals" I've gotten.


Anyone else had any luck??

Trying desperately for a box of '07 Leaf Limited, but unsurprisingly, blowout's server is terrible, and I can't get it to work.

We went out at 10pm last night! Went to walmart and left, lines to the back of the store, there was NO ORDER it was nuts! Went to toys r us, busy but was well controlled! So we got a couple things and the line was to the back of the store but moved pretty quick! Then went to target and got right in but the line was INSANE! It was rapped up and down each isle. And didn't seem to move at all, so we ditched the cart and when home and got some sleep. We are getting ready to head back out and maybe do some clean up on the stuff people missed! laugh.gif tongue.gif

I was on there and got tired of trying to make a purchase and the server crashing, so I went to Atlanta Sports Cards and bought a box of '11 Inception and a box of '07 Upper Deck Premier FB

Now Blowout has acknowledged that its server cannot handle the traffic, and is only going to sell via twitter and facebook.

Thanks for excluding customers who have no interest/faith in social networking sites!

I didn't go out for this year, but I looked at the Blowout/DA stuff. I didn't get anything big, just hobby boxes of 07/08 Fleer Ultra hockey (19.99) and 2008 Bowman Chrome baseball (29.99). Still looking for what else comes up at DA Card World.
WestCoastSkinsFan
I did pretty well. I ended up with 2 "super" deals on Blowout, and several nice deals in OCSportscards and DACardworld. I think it'll make the ol' group breakers happy!
otis0220
What did you end up getting? I'm gonna be having a big break around Christmas...some hobby and retail. Mostly hockey and football, unfortunately no basketball.
ffman
I worked at Wal-Mart 4-8:30 PM Thanksgiving night; after seeing the crowd at 8:30 (when the sale began at 10), there was no way I was going to shop.
otis0220
Because of DA and Blowout's policy about not combining multiple orders from the weekend, looks like I'll be receiving 5 packages tomorrow. Oh boy...
bajmurray
I think I have 3 packages containing 5 boxes total arriving tomorrow.

I'll be busting them old school here on TCC.

Also, my first "Black Friday" video shipment arrived! I received:

Despicable Me (Blu Ray combo)
The King's Speech (Blu ray)
Spartacus season 1 (Blu ray)
Family Guy Vol. 8 (DVD)
Scotty McCreery's CD
