Default 2008 Topps Sterling Baseball

I know there are a few of you out there who love this product, so I figure why not give it a shot as a GB.

I was thinking of doing 20 slots, to try and keep the price down as low as possible.

10 hit slots that come from the player specific box.
10 Mystery Pack and base card slots (the 3 base cards that come in the player box)


This break is probably only going to be for those true degenerate gamblers out there Slot prices will be $112.

Expected release date is November 24th, so this gives anyone that wants to get in plenty of time to get the funds together.



Configuration: 10 boxes per case. 1 pack per box. 5 cards per pack.

Highlighting 38 of the Greatest Players in Baseball History !!!

- Each Topps Sterling box contains 1 Player-Specific Wood box* and 1 Mystery Pack**
* Each Wood Player-Specific box contains 3 Base cards PLUS 1 Autographed Relic or Relic card of one player identified on the band wrap.
** Each Mystery Pack contains 1 Framed Parallel card sequentially numbered* to 50 or less OR 1 Letter Patch card of a random player.


EACH BOX CONTAINS:

Four Premium Cards of a single player:
- One Autographed Card or Relic Card numbered to 10 or less!
- Three sequentially numbered* Base Cards!
PLUS: A Mystery Pack Containing:
- One sequentially numbered* Premium Parallel Card of any player from the Sterling Set OR
- One 1 of 1 Jumbo Swatch Card from hundreds of classic subjects!

Topps is pleased to announce that 2008 Topps Sterling Baseball will now include Babe Ruth among the other 37 Baseball Greats listed below.

Technically 4 cards, 3 being base and whatever should pop out of the Mystery Pack.

Like I said, this is going to be for the true degenerate gambler

But its a risk reward type of thing....got to bet big to win big

Plus if its anything like last year, some of the cards that come out of the Mystery pack will sell for a decent amount. And I'm sure the base will pull in $10-20 each with it being right after release.

I will post up individual scans for everyone so that they can list everything on ebay that night to maximize return value.

Hey psk I stole your football letterman group break and you stole my sterling break...jk. Its gonna be hard to sell people on the 50% chance of getting a base slot, but remember one of those base slots will yeild you a jumbo swatch which could easily get you $100, and if you pull somebody good you can get $1,000+.

What goes around, comes around

I wanted to get in on this as this is pretty much going to be my only opportunity to crack this stuff. Just slightly out of my price range

Not dead, just dormant Still a long time till release, and price is continuing to drop. I'll make another push at it when the time is right. As it stands right now, slots are looking to be around $110.
