that total seems absurdly low given that there are a lot of other prizes, and even not count those it means about 1,300 blue wave packs. something's not adding up...

It's because they value the auto cards at $3 or $5 a piece... since they don't take the actual sell value they would be worth all they consider is the manufacture price basically

Yeah I get that, but I'm just confsued that if each pack is $3, and there's a total of about $3,900 in prizes in the entire promotion, then there's 1,300 packs (not counting the monthly/year prizes). For the other blue wave releases, there have been 10,000 packs.

Hmm, $2.92 for shipping ... that's worth like, what, a 2 or 3 shipping charge DSR, right?

To follow up, there are 1050 bowman victory autos at $3 each for $3150

There are 9 monthly auto set winners for 5 months. Sets are $15 each so that is $675

Uncut sheets are $3 each for 5 months so that is $15

Total is $3840

Id love to see what the football wave packs are priced at right now and if they include Bryce Brown those will skyrocket

Not as of a half hour ago, I'm amazed Topps would debut the site with some things still left to fix on it. While for all of us we have to forum to notify us that there is a glitch/bug still being worked out... for others who don't belong to forums they are probably sitting there swearing at topps to the computer screen losing patience

Default I agree...

Would have been easy enough to keep it offline until the bugs were out. Who do they pay for their "Quality" design work? Really doesn't look good for someone's or some company's portfolio.

Yes, and even besides the bugs, the site itself looks a little amateur.

I entered over 30 codes. Didn't get any Blue Wave packs. Apparantly your roster can contain as many as 20 players. There's no way (that I can see) in which you can delete them from your roster in favor of someone else, but once you enter your 21st code it automatically supercedes one of the prior choices you've made.

I wish it would get up and working properly so I can decide if I want to keep or sell mine. I am really on the fence.

EDIT--Have they said if Blue Wave packs are going to be limited on a per person basis? For example, if I want to enter 2000 codes can I continue to rack up the packs at whatever rate they fall or will I be cut off after a certain number? I have not heard either way.
