I think all of the negativity being brewed here will translate into MASSIVE SV for these cards. Thats the contrarian in me. I will be buying as many cases as I can get my hands on.

Yeah, in all of our dreams.

Well they have had two years...

The amusing thing is that it's likely to be a second-year game worn jersey in many cases!

Panini said 10/2 I believe in their original post. But who knows, that's less than a month away and Blowout has yet to take pre-orders on it.

Exactly how many Pinoy-named people are there that simply adore Panini??
Just one for me.
Someone here is doing that

It's funny how some are trying to justify that the price point of Flawless is comparable to UD Black or Exquisite. Collectors were willing to buy UD Black before was because there was a chance to pull an MJ Auto or Lebron that can actually get you a better return. Getting a Kobe or Durant Auto from this box is not even enough to pay for the box.

It is a good deal! It breaks down to only $180 per auto!

$1250 a pack?
LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL

Good luck, fellers. I'll sit on the sidelines for this one. 10 dollar Si3 clarity diamonds on 30 dollar SV cards for a pack that costs over a grand. Good gimmick, though.

Too bad it's already been done a million times over on those 24k diamond Jordan cards that were all over Shop At Home the entire late 90's decade.

I'm gonna take a wild guess and say either MJ or Lebron must be signing for them now, because that's the only way that can justify that price point.

And it's most likely Lebron, since it would be his first autographs in a Heat uniform, unlike Jordan, where he has plenty of Bulls autos.

It's like I already ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and now Panini wants to combine all three for some enormous midnight snack. But I'm already full and it will just make me sick if I eat any more. That's my take on it.

That is a good way to look at it.

Like I said, offering several flagship products is ONLY good if it's from different companies, thus creating market competition. It forces better pricing points and better products to encourage consumer sales. Right now panini has the monopoly so they're just spanking on ridiculous arbitrary numbers like they are on Flawless just for the sake...of being uber expensive.

A single company offering multiple flagship products just encourages more garbage. Sure, there will be lemmings that bite, but in the end the only one winning is Panini with their lazy designs and copious use of stickers.

It's like Toyota owning and selling both Lexus and Infiniti. Not a good thing.

I think if Panini wants to release multiple high end sets like this, they should have one that features rookies, and one that is maybe like a hall of fame set where every player is a hall of famer, who you WOULDN'T find autos of in NT. That way each product offers something unique to that product.

That would be awesome.
