Looks like Lincecum was inserted as a base card as well. Hopefully he still has the auto.

How do these guys get product so early?

Good news: Joba is not a redemption!

He has the first Joba on there. Should be interesting to see where that ends up.

Already at $78... man why can't I get my cards listed this early. This guy is going to clear $2G on his first case.

If this was a case, it appears the big name autos are not SPd. It looks like Lincecum may be an SP like Kenji last year, but hopefully that will help drive up prices if you land one.

I don't get it ? I know Topps changed their policy a while back when hobby shop owners complained about retail stores getting product first and I fully agree with them but there has to be some type of accountability with people ignoring release dates this blatantly. I'm assuming this seller has a shop and a direct account but Topps needs to put their foot down with people not honoring release dates. Its one thing to have something a day early but this is absurd. I wonder how much will show up over the weekend on fleabay. If there aren't any others than we can assume how this stuff became "live."

If that was in fact a case, here are some things to note...

5 parallel autos
Betances, Joba, F Mart, Pence, and Samardzija XFR auto

I agree listing this 5 days early in the US is a joke. The guy is not in Tawain.

I have 8 cases coming and seriously tempted to start pre-selling some of these big hit autos assuming that with 8 cases and 96 autos I have the odds with me to get these in my breaks.

Tony:

I think the Betances, Joba, Pence and F-mart were all base autos, but still good news if it was a case since it appears they did not SP these guys.

Yes, they are all base. I was just pointing two different things out in that post. As you can see, the Smardzija is noted as an XFR...

I love to get this kind of info but it still makes me sick to know how far behind some people we are going to be. By the way Jeb I thought you were going to flip your cases instead. I knew you couldn't resist. You and I can have a one on one contest as I have decided to bust 8 of mine. I hope your break is awesome and mine is even better.

I think its funny that we've been discussing this product for what seems like (or IS) sooooooo long that the Pence auto is now kind of an afterthought.
I wasn't crazy about him being an auto anyway but his stuff has cooled off so much now that I think I'll actually be disappointed if I pull his auto.

I know what you mean. It's really kind of sad. I would take a 2007 Bowman Chrome Ryan Braun auto over the Pence

Heck, a Maybin would have been nice too! haha

If we have 3000 auctions on Ebay this weekend and I get my product next Thursday I will have to consider selling the sealed cases.

Does anyone know if Ebay will pull these auctions since the product is not authorized by Topps to be sold yet?

I imagine if enough people report them they will at least look into it...

The Pence will still sell well. Hopefully he starts playing well next week.

Looks like this guy busted 1 case as he stoped listing after 12 autos. A few interesting points:

- He pulled every big hit base auto except Reynolds and Lincecum (Joba, Betances, Pence, F-mart). Hopefully we don't have "hot cases" with these autos while other cases are loaded with the Sergio Perez's.
- He did not pull any of the 5 autos that were announced a few weeks back. Hopefully there are not cases with these guys as the only autos.

ebay doesn't care what us lowly customers say/do... they're getting paid.

I thought in the past these super early auctions have been pulled.

If this guy was smart he would have listed Joba with a $300 BIN and it would have sold.

Makes me wonder if he "pulled" these since it seems like such a bounty assuming this is just 1 case.

Can't figure out why he took the time to list Paul Estrada before the other guys.

everyone should just give the guy the shaft and report him at the same time with the same information - that he's selling release date-5 LOL
