Hmm, thought it was going to be a hobby box type of product, but I think I'm interested in this at the price point.

Would love to use my $10 Shop Topps coupon from the 2012 Golden Giveaway. Anyone received their coupon yet?

Man these look terrible. They photoshopped some studio pics into the foreground instead of the painted look.

REAL Turkey Red:



THIS Turkey Red:



I think I will pass honestly, even at that price point... Garbage auto checklist and the base looks so amateur.

Damn, not digging the look too much. Sticker autos do not work for this product. If every card is actually a sticker auto I think I'll pass

Did anyone else notice that theres going to be a Topps product without a Harper auto in it?

But seriously, I'll probably pass.

Considering price and checklist, this seems like a sticker dump product.

On the fence, maybe in for one. Anyone else tired of seeing the same photos of the players used over and over?

It's still not a bad price @ $20 per auto.

if it is anything like Topps Mini, these boxes will be $30 after release/sellout

Auto Checklist is bad, yes, but at $20 bucks, I believe the base will cover that if sold properly, and the autos (however bad they will be) will be gravy. I think event he worst ones will bring $5 at the beginning, so I'll take it, with a chance at a Trout/Darvish auto/nice parallel.

I'll say 40. Look at Heritage High Number. BO is asking an ungodly amount for them because of scarity, not necessarily because the product is that amazing.

Heritage has much more of a following than Turkey Red, IMO. we'll have to bump this up in 2 months!

Regardless to how bad the checklist is, with the possibility of a Trout or Darvish autograph there is no way these go down in value at this price IMO. In today's collecting world, $50 is a cheap break. Any product at $20 will carry demand. There will be player collector's trying to track down the hard to find inserts. Most people would kill to break even on a flip. I think this will be a fairly easy 50%+ profit if sold sealed. I wouldn't open it though.

Probably true, but can't resist breaking wax but if I was in it totally for the money, yes, easy flip if you sell sealed.
