East coaster here too...i just happened to get very very lucky
....was awake re-bingeing up some "Bloodline," getting ready for the final season. it may not be the greatest show ever, but it's essentially filmed in my home town so i dig it.
Im certainly hoping for some prints that haven't been sitting on the site, unsold for many months now (i don't think thats really Shingo's style anyways ala Tim Doyle). but, after quickly doing the math, I realized there was no way I could pass. Shingo always tosses in extra goodies, and i like the dream that there's a chance he pulls out some older gems for those of us lucky enough to have grabbed a tube. Besides, if i do get any prints that I already own, or I'm not really into, then hopefully they will find a good home come this October.
Ive never bought a Horkey to flip. Off the top of my head, I don't think I've ever even sold one. The few that are in my trades are all easily available for reasonable prices in many places on the web and i own other versions of them...
I am wondering how many people who did score tubes bought 5 or more...with no limit as to how many you could buy someone coulda easily become eligible for THC 2017 in a single purchase.
