I could be wrong but without an official Puig prospect card, I don't think Chrome will have RC before a Bowman Chrome prospect card is released. Autos yes, base no.

Puig will be an rc logo in Both TC & BC. TC will have a non-auto & auto version but BC may only have an auto version. whatever the case, he won't have a prospect card in BC.

but then again, it's topps. i wouldn't be surprised if they issued a TC Rookie Auto and then 2 weeks later issue a BC prospect auto.

Only question is whether the Puig autos in TC will be live. If they are, this stuff will go insane.

Even if they're live. It's still 2 months until then. Some other prospect can always come surprise us like Puig did..and then he will be forgotten

Or he can run into another wall..

A case of 2010 Topps Chrome remains the biggest money maker I ever broke...pulled a blue Heyward auto and a Gold Strasburg..had Stanton auto and Castro....the Strasburg alone paid for the case when I sold it.

Does Topps Chrome always have 2 auto's per box?

After seeing this post, checked presells on BO and saw this under the product description...

i went to order a few more and the distributor said they already sold out their allocation and could not get many more from Topps. the only way would be if someone backed oout of their order.

this might be a good indication of a not so 'increased' print run over last year.....

That would be nice, really hoping for a great product, Topps Chrome has been really nice past couple years.

Still hoping Puig can have live autos in this. If that happens, no one will be able to find this for less than 100 a box.

Yeah that's what I was thinking too. I've only busted a few boxes in my life but I think I might preorder a couple to bust one and flip one a couple months after release as well.

So basically this should be a lock to get up to $90 a box or so?

Depending on the auto checklist, I think so.

Worst case it only has a couple good rookies such as Machado, Profar, Jose Fernandez maybe, Bundy, Hyun Jin Ryu maybe, which would probably make it go up to 90 because of Machado.

Best case is they got Puig, Myers, Cole, Miller also, which I think could make this go up to unseen prices for Topps Chrome.

If Puig is somehow live, I see this stuff hitting 130 a box at some point.

So then buying a case to flip sealed would be a pretty good shot at making some good money?

I have a case on the way! As much as I want to bust I can really see this going up to $1300 a case after release. Hopefully I can get another case so i can rip one and flip another!

I'm tempted to just buy a case for the guaranteed money to resell it. You need to clear $150 or so in fees/shipping, but that shouldn't be a problem.

Where else could you sell a sealed case besides eBay?

Smaller forums I guess, but you couldn't find anybody with the cash.
