    Blowout cards black friday pathetic again

    This black friday sale is the worst i've ever seen wow. The only decent deal was the 2017 optic mega football boxes. At least last year they had good deals on heritage baseball, you think they'd do at least one decent deal with 2019 bowman chrome, bowman, sapphire, or series 2 but they are exclusively doing garbage. When you are the biggest company by far there is no excuse not to have at least one competitive deal. Last year atlanta sports cards destroyed them on the 2018 update cases, and this year steel city collectibles is destroying them on everything. First time in probably 10 years I haven't bought one thing from them on black friday.

    Cards are selling like crazy right now. What on earth would be their motivation to have a crazy sell. You see their box breaks area? Everything is getting busted all the time. Heritage minors at 40 is good with a chance at a Wander. Was going to pick it up but my LCS owner said hed match so I might swing by today

    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I was thinking about some of the Black Friday deals I remember from 2008-2011 during the economic downturn. There were some deals to be had that we will probably never see again.

    Devil's advocate:
    If they have a ton of warehouse space, it may be in their interest to not run crazy sales and sell their unopened product for very little profit. Let the product sell at their normal profit margin and what doesn't move now, hold on to with the hope that the next superstar will emerge...then sell it for a much higher price.

    I was going to mention a video I saw about Blowout, but I think it was actually Dave & Adams retail location. If I recall, it was enormous. It almost seemed too big for what they had out.

    I have to wonder how often you'd come out a winner by buying the new product and just holding it. I don't buy boxes or even packs these days, so have no clue how many products heat up vs sit stale after initial release. I imagine some types of cards or brands always do well, where others might be a gamble each year. I have witnessed certain players or products heating up fast when a player breaks out though, so it just seems like if you had the space and capital, holding onto stuff for a while would be a good move. Redemptions, cards sticking together or a complete collapse of the card market are real concerns when holding $1000's of unopened product though.
