Default Topps Sterling release date changed?

I just looked at the release schedule for next week and did not see it. Am I missing something?

I'm waiting till after release. With the economy the way it is it has to drop after release no matter how good it is and since everything this year is a dud I would expect more of the same.

My lcs looked it up yesterday since I asked and also had Dec 24th. However, it also showed Bowman Sterling on the same day. I can't see them releasing them both the same day.

We decided to spend 500 on each other this year, so with the Live.com discount I went over budget by about $3. She collects face jugs now, and the prices of those things are way higher than cards....So I get three boxes and she will pick out one jug....We normally spend about 2,000 on each other and I will get a case of something, but we want to go to Hawaii for a week this spring, so we cut back a little.

Very strange, on D&A it has it has the 10th same as the cardkid, and 3 others all have it as 12/10....but blowout is still saying 12/24 and did not include it in next release boxes for next week.

I just checked ebay and those who are pre-selling have either one of those dates??...I guess we will have to watch the bay to see when individual cards start popping up.....I hope I see them soon.

If anyone is direct with Topps (or knows someone who is) don't they charge your CC 10 days prior to release? If they've been charged 12/10 or 12/12 is a possibility, if not 12/24 becomes the next possiblity.

FYI, I foolishly emailed Topps the other day trying to find out the release date. Shockingly, they never wrote back.

Everybody is reporting it on Wednesday and Topps is dropping the ball not responding to questions about 2008 Sterling....I don't know what is going on....blowout is still reporting December 24th...***********UPDATE it looks like it is the 24th as I just talked to another big dealer and he confirmed it is not this Wednesday******
