I don't know what the big hard on is about thick cards anyway for non relics. I'da gladly traded down to BC size for perfect cards.

Looks like 90% of the relics are jersey pieces too, have only seen one card that had patches and it was /5

I have to take back what I said about all the cards being chipped.. I saw some really nice looking redemptions being pulled... no chipping at all.

Just saw Chris break 7 (SEVEN) cases of this stuff.
It may run away with 'worst product for the money' right out of the gate.
A base harper rc auto a couple Trout autos over a dozen redemptions, a mattingly auto and a ernie banks/castro dual auto are the only things worth remembering.. Out of SEVEN cases.
Shame on topps and shame on us

I have seen some decent looking cards on ebay today. Guess it's a hit or miss on condition.

well it was a new product and everyone had high hopes, can't blame people for buying the product this year. Now next year when Topps pulls this same crap we hell at all the people who bought it again.

no big surprise that Topps customer service tel# (for cards anyways) just rolls into voicemail.
Except that the mailbox is full already. LOL (well not really, since I won't get any resolution to my damaged cards inquiry anytime soon)

Default It occurs to me...

There are better looking autos in 2012 Tier One with lower numbers and no real chipping problems. When I look at the autos on eBay they really don't deserve a pumped up price when they are /99, etc.

Five Star really hasn't upped the bar or gone into a classier realm with what's coming out overall. Yes, some big hits will placate reviewers but I'm not so thrilled.

IMHO,
VinnyH

Just watched those as well. Forgetting the awful chipping issue, the return on these is awful, be it a box, case or multiple cases. The big profit-making hits are few and far between. Singles buyers will love this stuff though.

I figure I could sell my 4 cases and just buy a bonanza of hits from the series on ebay. Thinking about doing just that. Can pick and choose conditionwise also.

Does Blowout ever buy sealed cases from individuals?

Seriously, your expected return is probably like 40%, maybe lower. I would sell sealed.

BO buys cases, but usually only when they are out of stock of something in high demand.

Also, you are making this assertion after seeing the contents of 2-3 boxes? Seems like a pretty small sample size to be making generalizations off of, no?
That's not true.Topps Tier One had no chipping issues.Cards look gorgeous.

Any idea on how many cases of 5 star were produced? I noticed BO isnt selling any at the moment.

My guess... 80 base X (/80 + /10) = 7200 boxes = 2400 cases.
