Yes, retail is over $120. As an ace race TD, I get wholesale pricing (60.45). I was really hoping on one of the big items, as was everyone. Even vs wholesale, those were great buys. I'll make it back in entries and raffle tickets, might sell the Buzzz outright. Whatever brings the most $ for the charity I'm running the race for.

ah that makes much more sense. i didn’t think i TD would buy a mystery box lol. Is there no wholesale pricing on baskets? for 99$, you are already pretty close to the price of a chainstar lite

Let's get one thing straight, mystery boxes aren't "stupid". I've been playing around with new molds and thought it would be fun to take a shot at a big prize. If I had gotten a hoodie and 3 shirts and 2 discs, I would not have been mad, because unlike true gambling, they are giving you a $$ amount guarantee.

Buying a mystery box assuming you will win a mega prize or get double the sticker value is stupid. Buying one hoping for fun stuff and considering you may get a dud is not stupid.

Granted the ultrastar does have a Star Wars stamp, but I don't need anymore Ultrastars. The one T-shirt they were blowing out for $5 and I bought two of them so I ended up with 3 (but only two in the correct size I ordered).
This is exactly what I received. I'm guessing there's a bean counter that made sure these boxes added up to "at least" $100 retail, so a lot of identical ones.

It's interesting that basically the "grand prize" was a single disc that cost them a couple bucks to make this year. It was also (coincidentally) won by someone they sponsor.

Duh, Paul McBeth won the 82nd of the buzzz discs he signed. He said, "Thanks to the folks at Discraft, I didn't think they'd ever return this disc to me because I forgot to put my phone number on it. Now I just need to find the other 81 I must have misplaced"

If you have an unknown source to get disc golf stuff at nearly 50% off retail, what are you buying a mystery box for? Other than the chase of the gamble?

Of course you are asking the wrong person, but I'd be interested in this rationale as well.
