Default 2013 Topps Tribute WBC Set Suggestions

I'm really liking the new product. I know I want to do a set just having trouble deciding which one. Leaning towards the Prime Patches set which has some really nice names and has 70 cards. It would diffidently take some time but would a amazing if it came together. I'm not thrilled about the autos being stickers just because of how high end the product is. Let me know what you think. Do you think it's even worth it? Should I just do the members of team USA? Tell me how ya feel. Thanks.

I think having the whole patch set would be great (I would say auto set, but I dislike the sticker autos) but it may be a little pricey, so maybe start out with just getting the USA guys (or whichever country you want to start with) and go country by country in the set (seeming that would be easy and organized).

Yeah I'm going with the prime patch set. Who knows it may take me until the next WBC to complete but that's half the fun of doing a set is the search.

Very few cards to choose from on ebay, seems like no one is liking this stuff at the current price point.

exactly. no one is busting it, and us singles buyers need those big casebreakers to do their part and rip this product open so we dont have to. part of this is because the best hit in the product is probably the miguel cabrera auto (excluding 1/1's)

I LOVE this product...but only because I supercollect WBC. If you like the product then go for it. The patches are awesome and the complete set would look amazing.

I'm already working on the entire set....almost done with the base autos. About to move to the parallels.

Hopefully you got a good deal because I am seeing $1100 on an 8 box case and $555 on 4 box cases, looks like dealers are dumping trying to cut loses.

Yea, this stuff dropped like a rock, I figured it would happen, but didn't think it would be this quickly, especially with nothing coming out.

I told myself I'd buy a box when it came down to $150, what do ya know, that happened already, so I have one en route. Might become a great value buy if it goes down any more.
