I bet it runs to $900 a case. If it does I won't rip a pack.
What's your strategy for flipping these things? I've got three cases coming, and if it hits $900, it would be foolish not to flip them...

Hoping Myers/Machado/Puig/Wheeler have autos in this.

We know Puig is involved, but with that lineup, who needs Skaggs, Bundy, Marte, Franklin, Miller, Zunino, Fernandez, Profar, Garcia, Miller, Tallion, Cole....

Seriously, this could be the most loaded auto set there has ever been...

I can send out a tweet and have three cases moved in an hour.

If I had to guess, I would say no, I think we would have seen him in Ginter.

But who knows.

I would have been happy if he would have had just a base/mini RC in Ginter.

I guess depending on the checklist, this might be a great idea as well. It projects to be MUCH stronger than last year's, and that stuff shot up like a rocket...

Only problem is, how does one exercise enough restraint not to open these suckers?

Just ordered a case and it will be my first case bust ever! So pumped. It will be loaded. I think Ryu might also have an auto. That would sell nicely to oversea buyers in Korea/Taiwan/Japan.

Nothing definitive yet.

But, why not. Here is my guess on the full auto checklist for rookies:

NOTE: MERELY A PROJECTION

Aaron Hicks
Adam Eaton
Adeny Hechavarria
Avisail Garcia
Brock Holt
Bruce Rondon
Casey Kelly
Chris Archer
Darin Ruf
Did Gregorius
Dylan Bundy
Gerrit Cole
Jake Odorizzi
Jeurys Familia
Jurickson Profar
Manny Machado
Mike Olt
Nate Freiman
Nick Franklin
Nick Maronde
Paco Rodriguez
Ryu-Hyun Jin
Shelby Miller
Tony Cingrani
Tyler Skaggs
Wil Myers
Yasiel Puig
Zack Wheeler

That would be a bad @$$ auto checklist and would certainly push this stuff up well over $900, potentially higher than 2012 (still sitting at around $1300).

Isn't a rookie by Topps standards this year, his rookie was in 2012 Topps Update, similar to how Trout was treated last year.

Bundy won't be in there as he hasn't played this year. Brad Miller and Yelich will be in there as well. Thinking Garcia has a good shot too!

If he isn't in there, that isn't the reason. He has been in products as late as Ginter and Inception, and was also on the sell sheet. I know sell sheets aren't the final say, but I doubt they would keep out Bundy when they obviously have a large autograph contract with him.

Hech will not have an auto like every other Topps product this year, yet he is one of the only rookies who is a decent daily player...

EDIT: Disregard my comment. I saw in another post he is confirmed. WOOHOO!!

My understanding is that players who are included in Topps Chrome, must have played in part of the season up to that point. Now I may be mistaken, but that's the trend that I've seen. I want him to be in there as the next collector, but the players I mentioned in my last post have played in a majority of games thus far.

He did make two appearances for the Orioles this year actually, 1.2 IP.

Interesting! Well for collectors sake, I hope he's in there. I just don't want him taking a spot away from the players I'm hoping to see in there you know?

True. My list has only 25 (maybe 26, lost count) players in it, while last year's chrome had 32, so I am sure we will see a few players that we never thought of in this years list. (see, Hague, Matt and Surkamp, Eric)

Not sure. I only collect and follow the players stats line, I am not crazy in the sense that I follow them on Twitter, friend them on FB or know their instagram.
