I find the Zig Zag (NL) sells for higher than the Cracked Ice (AL) equivalent. Anyone else see this?

Absolutely, although Zig Zag has had the craziest market of them all. At first, people were recognizing it as the rarest of the rare and valuing them higher than either Stripe or Shatter Stripe. Then once Shatter Stripe was recognized as rarest Zig Zag steadily declined as everyone who wanted one seemed to be getting theirs. It's hard to track as now some listings have started to age out on eBay's ended listings. Now Circuit Board seems to have a stronger market similar to Zig Zag, although Pipes lags behind. If you search (circuit, pipes) you can see that Circuit Board dominates page one when sorted by highest price... or is this an AL vs NL talent issue? Of course this is based on my very limited observations, but it's fun to try to track.

My O'neill 1/1 charcoal auto just popped on the Bay, start $399 or make offer. I'm not even going to entertain.

I'm not familiar with the industry today. Is it possible this product gets virtually all sold and all opened? Is that pretty common?

I've been tracking the 1/1 charcoals and 1/1 charcoal autographs and many of them have been pulled. I'd be interested to know how much of this gets cracked. I'd assume it's going to be most of it since it's such a great product. Unopened cases / boxes may end up being like unopened 1998 tek boxes in the far future.

Picked up one box from BO. Could have saved $10 by using eBay, but I trust BO a lot more. I must have gotten a 'Mike' box. Two Trouts. Base and the Circle Swirl one. Piazza base. Napoli base auto. Also got a Palmiero Teknician /50. Then the mind blower: I flip over this card with a starry diffractor design. 1/1!!! Probably my best pull ever. Bryce Harper Galactic Diffractor!!!!
