Obviously nobody would buy that, but if there are still that many unoowned cases imagine how saturated the market is with these cards. There was a bit of interest a few years ago because of grading. People were picking up boxes in hopes of getting a card with a grade of 9.5 or 10.

The funny thing is this is already happening in a sense. While a Teemu Selanne RC sells for like a buck, a graded BGS 9.5 of the same card sells for like 50 bucks.
