User Reviews

  1. Were there really only 25 of the oversized multiswatch card? I thought it was a case hit?

  2. Edward (ID 42241) The over-sized card was limited to 25 copies. It is not a case hit.

  3. Geez, I was going to keep it because it’s cool, but now I might put it on Ebay…any idea what they are worth?

  4. Edward (ID 42264) I would guess $500ish, possibly much more (although possibly less). I did an eBay check and there were none listed that I could find. I heard of one sale but no price was given.

  5. Digging a little deeper, I found three sales:
    March 22 – $699 (Buy it Now)
    April 5 – $1,020
    April 6 – $850

    So, a nice return on your case. Congrats!

  6. Thanks, this was a great help. If you are curious, it is on Ebay now, Item number: 280884750719. It’s at $764 with 2 days left.

  7. Edward (ID 42431) Well done! My guess is you could see lots of last-day snipes as well.

  8. Hello I am very interested in the big bang theory!!! I am looking for the 5 swatch oversized wardrobe card I have found a few on eBay but 1 I was winning and it just wasn’t taken off the ones I have budded on I have been out bid because I didn’t get to put in my highest bid!! I am very interested in this card!! Please let me know if you find one I will definitely buy it!! Sincerely Lori Swetnam

  9. didn’t get to bust a box..but found singles online. The product skyrocketed in price early on so buying a box was impossible. Seeing the singles autos on the big 5 was stunning in price. Like how they recap the great moments of the great show!

  10. I purchased 9 packs of these cards today and got a Johnny Galecki autographed card. I plan on keeping it but does anyone have any idea how much it could cost if I wanted to sell it?
