After much dilemma, I locked in a case of it today! Blowout put more up for pre-order so I consider myself lucky! Already excited about next month...now it's time to wait for the official checklist. In the meantime, I may have Chris break me a box of finest when it comes out.

I was just thinking of the potential for the checklist to be completely loaded! Guys like Gattis, Yelich, Fernandez, Puig, Myers, Wong, Machado, Bundy, and of course Franklin and Miller. I'm sure I'm forgetting a ton but this is going to be fun

He didn't specify how long it would take at all. So not sure why it matters.

Hoping we start hearing more about the autos at least soon!

I really believe that once the auto checklist comes out, the case prices are going to go up at least $50-$100.

even though the auto checklist looks like it will be very strong....... don't forget that it's the little things that make TC a great break. all those inserts & parallels add the extra value.

buying a box or up to a case is a big gamble for most products and TC is no different. there will be box/single case breaks with monster pulls, but the majority will be below average. people who can open multiple cases will have the best opportunity do well. lots of little things add up. and odds for decent color autos are better..., of course.

good luck to all who open.

Unlike some higher end products, does Topps guarantee a "case hit" in each case with TC?

Yet we will still see 8 threads that say "case hit pulled" when a gold auto or better comes out.

Stop being so cynical, you punk

Technically, gold autos (or equivalent) fall one per case, so perhaps they're half right.

All 3 of my cases last year had 2 autos gold or better so I beg to differ

Yeah, I did pretty well, too. Only time will tell, but I plan on trying to flip it all...I didn't make too much of a commitment last year, and still did alright.

Well, by flip it all, I mean rip and flip...and much quicker than I did last year...waited until almost a month after the product released to open it, then another month or two to start selling...

Oh ok that makes sense. I got in late for 2011 Topps Chrome too but still had plenty of fun with it.

Here's to hoping it's not overproduced.

Yep hope so, like I said, I think overproduction is the only real fear right now. Can't see them doubling the print run, but who knows.

2011 Chrome was HEAVILY front-loaded. Buy a case now, and the color is very few and far between.

I haven't seen anything...and judging from the news that the Finest checklist probably won't come out until the week of release, it may be a while before we see one for 2013 TC

Congrats on the case purchase! 2010 TC was my first baseball case break and this will be my second. Anxiously awaiting a checklist
