This. I don't think you'll see more than one or two guys sell over $30 initially.

I agree, this has disaster written all over it.

This isn't a product you rip and flip but sit on, not sure why people think its an easy payday. This product is released during the off season, which will hurt value.

I agree that the auto'ed prices are a little high for after release. But those are estimations for right at release, and I agree with most of them.

I, along with a couple other people, pre-ordered when the codes were announced. With that added 150-200 per case that the codes should give, that makes the risk a lot less, and should help the bottom line tremendously for case breakers. I was going to stay out completely until I heard about the codes. That, plus the addition of a bigger prospect set and a smaller rookie set (with good names this year) I think case breakers will do ok. It is by no means a slam-dunk product, but well worth the risk with the codes included.

Wouldn't have touched this without the codes.

WTF!!!! $1500, that's higher on release than the jumbos in both of the last two very good products that were way better

This is the first time draft has had jumbos, it's not really a fair comparison at all.

There are lots of nice autos in here but it's missing the one or two big name autos of uber prospects like a Harper or Stras, etc.

I just look at the checklist and ask, why would I spend $680 on a case or pay $10-15 for the autographs I want?

I know there is the chance of a home run hit in a case, but seriously, it makes more sense to buy the autographs.


My guy lets me kill my orders up to 72 hours prior to release. I was in for four hobby at $680 per (he was at $700 gives me a discount for multiples). I'm thinking punt and buy singles.

I wish I had that much to buy singles. I think that would be a blast!

One of the players listed as a $5 card will be your 2014 ROY, guaranteed.

Thanks for narrowing it down at least. I don't blame you for not spilling the beans but the smart ones here might take a second look at those $5 names.

I would love to invest $100 into 20 base autos of someone who might wind up being ROY in 2 years.

I think Hawkins with his athleticism will attract some more prospectors and he should settle in at $35-$40. Time will tell.
Will Gausman's prices be hurt because he can't eat hostess donettes on game day ruining his ritual?
