How is this 41% off, MSRP is certainly not 144 dollars, I've never even seen a box listed for that much that wasn't at least a year or more old and had decent pulls in it...

I really need to sticky this on every MTG booster box thread...
MSRP - Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price. NOT to be confused with 'Street price' which changes day to day based on supply and demand, and is impossible to objectively state.

We're not willing to definitively say that at this time. We're currently not shipping internationally, but we're actively working on it. We source the cards from a number of mtg distributors and as of this moment, we don't have one that's able/willing to let us ship their product internationally.

Quoting WoTC's sales lit proves only what Manf. Suggested Ridiculous Price they set. Back in reality (as you've been corrected before) the "MSRP" is ALWAYS misleading and typical market value is low to mid 90's. Street value on booster boxes does NOT vary wildly "day to day" or town to town (in the US) thanks to sites like TCG and only ever approaches $120+ when a good edition goes out of print or pre-release gouging happens.
That said this is an exceptional price @$87.99/box (rivaling per-case pricing) for a set of this age. It's just as usual you're over hyping the real world value of the discount.
