I like the idea of a limited supply. Although I doubt people needed more of an incentive to send in their wrappers.

The wrapper redemption program was announced months ago. I mean, it was on the sell sheet.

Although my initial reaction was that 10,000 packs is a LOT of packs, that translates into a PR of around 450 for each of the blue wave cards assuming they are prospects only. If they do the red wave parallel #/25 like the sell sheet indicated, that would reduce the blue waves to a PR of around 425. That's pretty darn limited.

How long do you guys think it will take before the 10,000 packs are gone?

10000 packs isn't THAT limited. given the number of people that typically procrastinate on things like this, and given that many won't be aware of or won't understand the nature of the limited supply and won't be in a hurry, i suspect anyone who mails wrappers (via priority mail) within the first week will have no problem.

I hope so. I won't be getting my stuff from Blowout 'til the following Monday, assuming they ship on the 9th. Better do 2 day or overnight to be safe.

Very cool, those Hultzen and Cole autos look sharp, and like the adjustments made to the team break that is going right now to give the not so great teams a case worth of wrappers.

So it is 24 hobby wrappers and 7 jumbo wrappers for ONE 5 card pack?

10000 packs is about 850 cases of wrappers. That will get busted in the first couple days.

Signs of a limited print run??? 10,000 cello packs will only be enough to cover 800-900 cases worth of wrappers. I can't imagine if this was a LARGE print run that Topps would have limited the packs to so few, as they've never done so in the past.

7 jumbo doesn't make much sense. It should be 6. If you divide a jumbo case by 7 it comes out to something like 13.7 packs.

What's the best way to ship the wrappers? I'll have at least a hobby case worth (288 wrappers), and I'm sure some of you will have more. Can't imagine squeezing them all into envelopes. Use the cheapest flat-rate box?

Does Topps really count all those wrappers, or should I include a "packing list"?

Tie them or rubber band into stacks of 24 and then I would ship them in a flat rate box or padded flat rate envelope.

Yeah that is weird. 12 packs/7 is 1.71 packs per jumbo box, so 1 pack.

96 packs per jumbo case, so about 13.71 packs per case, or 13 packs.

Hobby will get you 12 packs for a whole case.

EDIT: Adjusted and corrected because of my own stupidity!

Jumbos are 12 packs per box not 18. I think.

I don't think the sell sheet said anything about the autos, that is a nice addition. It looks like I won't be able to take my sweet time opening my cases like I considered.

The sell sheet stated there would be blue wave autos #/50 randomly inserted along with red wave parallels #/25.

Yea this is way to limited for the amount of cases that will be out there. I dont see these lasting but a few weeks, which is a shame. I planned on buying some wrappers on ebay to complete a few sets. Not taking that chance now, wrapper values just dropped.
