That's just strange...why rip their customers like that when they could have dropped them in a box?

Razor should be a good break at the price point of only $8 per auto and the checklist is the best in baseball this year. Only downside is it being it's 1st year and hopefully the autos are not high numbered like Elite.

To avoid pack searching.

Also by selling off the Plates, they could be using the projected profits from that to help offset some of the production costs helping to lower the SRP on the product?

I find it odd as well since most companies put them in the product. I'm sure people will buy them, but will Topps et al follow suit?

Well, Razor pretends to be innovative and they are trying to do some new stuff. Even if so far they still rookie in their product, I enjoy seing some company trying things and develop the hobby. They might do some errors, but I think itwill force major companies to improve their stuff and customers will be the winners at the end. I bought a box just by curiosity.

If we return at the original question, any other players in that checklist are real good prospects?

I believe they have signed almost all of the 2008 1st round picks and have several other later round prospects that seem to be from big name teams like Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs etc. I'm not sure how well this product will do, but I'm going to open some boxes. It is tough to pass up at the price point per autograph.

8.00 per autograph on average is hard to pass up?

I would highly doubt that prospect rookie autos that are numbered will see for only $.50 each, but if they are then I will be buying them by the 100's. I take my chances anyday on a new product with 10 autos per box and the best checklist for 2008 over 1 auto per box on 2008 Bowamn Draft.
