Got 5 packs in today. 2 reds, no one big, and no autos. No big prospects at all.

Well worth the wait. Some of the coolest looking cards of 2012, no doubt!

I think the Wave refractors and Mini chrome cards will be the next generation of popular parallels (kind of like how a flood of color took over a couple years ago).

I agree, those mini chromes are going to be nuts. Also excited for the code cards, should fetch $5.00/per. Topps is riding high.

Ahhh well........so I sent mine in on the Friday (overnight with sat am delivery) after the release then my buddy for the heck of it sent his in on the wednesday that topps posted on twitter the 5000 packs were gone. He got his blue wave cards on Friday and I still have nothing. I wish topps would explain but it's obvious they just cherry pick. Bummer.....

Yeah, I have noticed that those who are waiting longer are reaping the rewards, in general. Seems like a lot of the good autos are just now going out. I got mine on saturday and got the Hamilton auto. More then please, and made it worth the wait.

Houdini, one of the first guys to get their packs got a Hamilton Auto. Plus it seems pretty consistent that out of 5 packs you will get 1 auto and 1 red. I dont know that they backloaded these with good autos or anything.
