At first I didn't like the idea of paying extra money for a box or two but heck with a chance at some of those players it's well worth it. I picked up a box of contenders and timeless because limited was sold out at the time. Would have been a great way for them to sell brilliance lol.

Bought a box of Timeless and Past & Present against my better judgement. I'm sure it'll turn out horribly. Good luck to everyone.

panini uses words like extraordinary, legendary, historic... too much to describe their products

Some of you guys are off your rocker if you think the bonus pack/box is worth only $30 just because that's how much your are paying extra on a box. The bonus autos will likely sell better than the boxes that you order to get them, so just think of them as free boxes to break after you sell the bonus pack for $100+. Keep in mind that the autos in the bonus pack will be numbered 25 or less. If you have the money, you should be buying the crap out of this promo. The Super Bowl promo had a similar checklist and it really wasn't too hard to pull something that you would like because of the limited print run.

The bonus packs will prob go for $70-100 each.

Even on the low side you dump them at $70 per pack you would be into a three box rip pretty cheap.

As reference, I was able to sell my Super Bowl Promo packs for $150 each weeks after they went live (unfortunately one of them had a Andrew Luck auto, but at least my buyer was a happy camper). I would expect these NBA ones to go no less than $100.

Aah, the call of a true pack breaking junkie. It takes a pretty crappy product for me to not open it once it's in my possession as well.

Went with 2 Limited, 1 P&P. Will hold the boxes I guess and sell in the future. Should I buy more?

I bought the last 5 limited they had yesterday.

But it looks like they are back with more, so I may take a shot at 5 more today.

basicly you are paying $30 above market value on these boxes to get the bonus packs that should be worth $100.

If you are a breaker, and I plan on breaking all of mine, the profit should be in whatever you get out of the boxes you bust. The bonus packs should bring you a decent return if you buy enough of them to insure a good hit.

Just bought 2 boxes of Limited. Never ordered from Panini directly before, how quickly do they usually get orders out?

Acually this guy is helping panini out a lot because if the pack ends up selling for $100, people will begin to buy out whats left for the promotion because youre basically getting the box for free lol.

lol yeah true! Maybe he works for Panini! Is it Pinoy Mamba selling that pack!

But yeah, I wonder how many packs they have total in this promotion? 500? 1000?

I'm also curious how the numbering is going to be. Are the Private Signings all #/25?

Tracy confirmed that everything is #/25 or LESS.


Could get interesting if there are set collectors looking to complete that set.





If they were on-card autos and not stickers, they'd be sold out by now ... and I would have bought 100 of them!

If i remember correctly, the pre-selllers of the Super Bowl Promo short-changed themselves. The packs sold for considerably more once they were live.

Close to impossible to complete the set as there were cards numbered as low as 2 or 3. The Super Bowl promo took at least a day to sell out as well, but once they were live, people were wondering why they didn't buy more.
