    Typical card show price boxes for standard inserts

    Since I don't have card shows near me (that I'm aware of) to research this, for a relatively recent standard not-serial-numbered insert (i.e. not inserts of hot rookies, prospects, or megastars), in what types of budget collector boxes could you typically find them in? Dime, 20 cents, quarter, 50 cent, or other denonimated boxes?

    I'd say that is pretty reasonable, although depending on the sets and players, even a quarter may take a while to find the right buyer.

    I'll use a local example, but it is a shop. He has a massive pile of 25 cent boxes, but nothing cheaper. Sometimes you find some sweet deals, often you are getting a fair price, but he has a ton of stuff that might not even ever sell at 10 cents a card. I suppose the time it takes to sort and distribute just isn't worth it, but I would love to see dime and quarter boxes. As a seller, if you price the stuff decently, you can score some pretty decent sales in bulk from buyers who love nothing more than to scour the bargain boxes.
