I've heard it's 11% allocation Jumbo -> Hobby. That means if you buy 1 case (12 boxes) of hobby you can buy 1 box of Jumbo's. Buy 2 cases of hobby you can buy 3 boxes of Jumbo's. Buy 6 cases of hobby you can buy 1 case (8 boxes) of Jumbo's. Something like that.

Not sure if you can buy individual boxes of Jumbo if you buy X amount of hobby boxes/cases? I think you may have to buy the 6 cases of hobby for 1 case of jumbo.

That being said can anyone guess what the price of a jumbo case will be once it releases? I was thinking about breaking 4 cases, but I may bump that up to 6 and take a jumbo case to flip. Thoughts?

Might be a great idea. Maybe you could just sell two of the hobby cases and rip the jumbo!

That's an idea! I guess it'll depend on if there's anything Jumbo exclusive or if Topps decides to load up the Jumbos with lots of color like 2012 Bowman.

You will likely take a loss on selling hobby...

So? You can make likely $500+ on the jumbo case.

Seems backwards to me.

Buyers who purchase direct from Topps (hobby shops & distributors), I think you are right, they have to buy 6 hobby cases for every 1 Jumbo case.

But regular folks (collectors) don't buy direct. They buy from hobby shops or retailers. Those hobby shops and retails can divvy up their inventory and sell it any way they choose. So I'm sure you can find a place that'll sell you 6 hobby boxes and 1 jumbo box. Probably. Right? Some retailers might be saving Jumbo's for their "premiere" customers though, so you might get hosed on the whole deal. This business is nuts futs cabutts.

Stroman did, but that doesn't mean he can't be in any Topps baseball card products.....Kind of off topic here

Check his Twitter, he posted pics of the superfractor and signed base card

If anyone is lucky enough to get ahold of jumbo cases they should 100% without a doubt sell them. There is no way you get the value out them at those prices compared to selling them unopened. You would have to get lucky and hit a very nice colored autograph. Take the sure fire profits from selling.

Is there an actual checklist out for this product yet? The last time I looked at BOC it was pretty much a blank sheet
