First question: What are the odds one or more of those releases gets delayed?

Second: Odds that Prizm goes down in price after the first month lol?

This is my first year back buying new wax. For the veterans on this thread - now that Finest has been delayed will Topps Chrome definitely be pushed back? I ordered two boxes that I'm very excited to bust.

I'm worried it might be, yes. The crapfest that was Tier One was so loaded with redemptions that it scares me combined with the delay of Finest. I decided to buy some Heritage Minors to hold me over just in case haha, it's a safe product also.

Hard to fathom that Topps Chrome and Finest could BOTH come out after the season, but who knows.

Ugh I really hope this isn't the case, I just pre-ordered my first case ever.

The base set alone should make it worth enough to be a great product still. We haven't seen a base set this loaded in a long time.

Assuming even a few of the big names have autos, the only real thing that can kill this product is overproduction.

I think Topps is starting to get in over their head with all of these insane product launches. I like what JohnAndrew had suggested in another thread. Limiting their products would dramatically improve quality control and customer service, as well as drastically reduce the amount of potential redemptions they load into their products. It's just hard to fathom that there are zero watchdogs in this industry that can keep these idiots, I mean, card companies under wraps.

Redemptions are a sham, postponements are a sham, and exclusive licensing is bordering on anti-trust.

With all that said, I REALLY hope they don't push Chrome back, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if they do. I have three cases coming, and have 17 slots in a 3-case group break (only paid for three). This is my favorite product every year, and would be disappointed to see it follow the same path as the others...unless they're trying to avoid the sticker dump/redemption nightmare that is Tier One.

I hate to say it but you're probably screwed on that .

At this point, I'd be afraid to schedule work off around any Topps release dates. There doesn't seem to be much that HASN'T been pushed back this year at least once.

I'd rather have them push it back than TC being full of redemptions

well, we're 2+ weeks out and it hasnt been delayed. Finest was what, 6 weeks or so out when they bumped it back to October? I'm not a Finest fan, so I wasnt paying close attention.

I'm really hoping there's no delay on this one. It's going to be my finace's first experience ripping anything, she's fairly excited. Apparently she thinks that we will make more money from ripping & flipping vs selling the case sealed. Oh, the good ol' days when we were all so optimistic...lol

On the flip side, she generally has a pretty hot hand w/ wax, so maybe she's on to something here.


Also, is anyone else intrigued that there hasnt been a jump in price yet? 2012 was pushing $900 this close to release (if not over) and 2013 will (supposedly) have a better rookie crop in it. Is that a sign of not much being ordered? I'm no Econ major, but with the whole supply/demand thing, to me it seems like demand is down since the price hasnt budged lately. I could be (and probably am) completely wrong/premature in my speculation, but hey, gotta have something to talk about waiting for this stuff to drop.

Finest was due next week 9/4 when it got bumped on Wednesday of this week. The original bump from August to September happened in July when they moved all products a month or so.

My feeling on the price is due to the lack of checklist (information) and probably all of the delays and redemptions seen in products, although I am not as experienced as many on here.

there was no second delay on Platinum when Tier One was bumped another month. hopefully it's the same situation where they are just trying to thin things out by bumping Finest in favor of TC

I don't know what it was preselling for but I bought 2012 way cheaper than that not long after release.

I'm still not grasping why Tier One was bumped. There are redemptions for RELICS. And not HOFers or rare guys, we're talking guys who played last night. WTF Topps...???

Curious the timing of Topps now ... moving Finest to the back of the line and delaying Topps Chrome for two weeks and Bowman chrome for one week.

TC Release - 9/25
BC Release - 10/2
TF Release - 10/9

That's a wallop of products back to back to back. By the time Finest is released, I think everyone will be broke. Not thrilled about the schedule now.

Don't forget Topps Update the 16th.....

Only saving glory is that these products may not flood the market, which could mean better sales for breakers, but could cancel itself out.

Either way, not too happy, as Heritage Minor League shows the 20th now, and I wanted to break that, but not sure I want to do that and TC 5 days apart.

Unless I'm missing something, BO and DA still show TC releasing 9/18.

They're just behind the times. Topps sent out their new schedule earlier today ... those pages will update eventually.

One week delay meaning the new Topps Chrome launch is now 9/25.
