I just busted a box of Select Hybrid ($800 cost) and the best card was either a Tyler Herro Base Prizm or a Steph Curry Disco Prizm base. I'd be lucky to get $100 back if I were able to sell ALL of the cards.
Assuming Zion stays healthy, your Zion's are only going to increase in value. You'll eventually be able to pay off your $900 cost.
Me on the other hand, there's no chance unless Tyler Herro becomes Luka Doncic like.
In saying this, that 's the hobby and I always have a blast opening packs myself!
