Default Rant about 2012 BC sell date

So I know that there were 2012 bowman chrome retail sightings and people were going to target, Wally World, Walmart, etc. Abd even though the official release date is the 17th some wax was being busted in Taiwan or by some who pre ordered and got cases early.

What annoys me is this - I called both of my local LCS and they both said the product would not be available until Wednesday. But I see several people here buying from their LCS today one day before the sale date.

I respect the integrity of my stores and that they are trying to respect the manufacturers but it just sucks. Sorry for my rant. Just annoyed.

The guy at my LCS said retail is always 1-2 days ahead.

Given how absolutely terrible the odds on retail busting are, maybe Topps knows its Target and Wal Marts best shot to move heavy quantity? I wasted $110 I'd normally never blow there just because they put it out early.

In fact, one lazy Target didn't even have it out, and will likely sit on the product until red lining it to 11.99

Maybe the early breaks will help you to save some money...

My old So Cal LCS always had stuff on Tuesday. I always bought, and always lost. Consider yourself saved and live vicariously through others .
