Anyone Want to Go Halvsies...

...on a CASE of 2010 Allen & Ginter? Case pre-sell prices look very reasonable right now, breaking down to about $75 a box. I haven't totally talked myself into this venture yet, but I can't really see myself wanting to spend money on anything but this set this year, so why not go apeshit?

I'm definitely going to go after the Wordsmiths set, and probably the Lords of Olympus, but I'm not too keen on the dinosaurs. Not sure about the National Animals or Sailors of the Seven Seas, either. Perhaps my colleague in this endeavor and I could reach a gentleman's agreement on such matters.

If you have any interest, let me know in the comments. Nothing is legally binding yet, of course. Just throwing in out there.

I certainly do not have to the capitol to spend, but I am willing to trade the inserts you seek for the dinosaurs which you do not.

Um... I know I can't go halvsies but I might be able to pull off a quartersies if you can find one or two more people.

I'd be very tempted to go halvsies!

I could go sixty-fourthsies... If you could front me the cash for a while...

I'd consider going in on a Chicle case (for the right price), but not A&G. I collect baseball cards, not cards of rocks, bodies of water, zebras and other nonsense.

I was thinking about doing the same.. but the price is a bit steep... as dayf said... I might be intrested in quartersies... what would a 4 person break cost per person?

If I starting mowing lawns in the neighborhood now, I too, could be interested. I've thought of this before, but shipping costs tend to even out the case saving when dealing with multiple people.

Um, if dayf, Swag and yourself want to, I could be the last piece of this quartersy.

I've never bought my own case, let alone split one, but, I am sure I could come up with a quarter of the price, just need to know a timeline ;)

Just email me (anicolausk@yahoo.com) as I am sure all 4 of us could work out the different insert/subsets, autos, GU, etc and all come out VERY happy.

And, you can guarantee I am in as I have wanted to put together an A&G set, so what better way then busting some wax?

Correction: I AM willing to go halfsies. I was thinking about going for a full case myself, but I think I'd be better off with half a case anyhow! Let me know - my email is in my profile if you don't have it handy.

I'd be interested in going halfsies or quartersies. Just to put it out there. But we'd probably have to act fast on the pre-order to keep the price low. It'll probably rise every week that goes by.

Swag said...

Yea I think goin in with 4 I'd do that.. 3 boxes each.. Ight.
Btw.. Thorzul did the payment for your group break ever get to you? If it didn't let me know and I'll send it again. However somethin might be up because 2 trades I sent out at the same time as the payment disappeared.. so unfortunately I think somethin happened...

If anyone pulls one of the two railroad-related cabinet cards. I would love to get my hands on them.
