LOL, I guess i am frustrated with every card company! I was also thinking of the Panini Black that has also been pushed back a few times so far.

Here's to hoping no news is good news. ToopsFB has been quiet since that Doug Martin image was posted, and the launch date is still 12/21.

All participants should have the following PM in their inbox:

Hey Guys -

I wanted to bounce an idea off of you. Strata is still set to release next Friday, but due to our shipping option, there's a good chance we won't get the cases then. I emailed Danny to get a cost estimate for shipping, and he said it'd be around $40 a case to do 2-day air, which would "guarantee" we get our cases on the 21st, and break them on the 21st.

There are 22 of us in the break, which comes out to $9.50 a person (PayPal Goods).

If you'd like to upgrade shipping, please let me know. I would have fronted the cash if it was less than $100, but $200 is just slightly out of my "feeling philanthropic" range.

Matt

Is it ok if we just respond here? I'm perfectly fine with upgraded shipping, but it's not an absolute need for me. The way I see it, we'll still need to wait for shipment to get the actual cards in-hand anyway! But if everyone else prefers to guarantee we have the break on the 21st, I'm also fine with paying for upgraded shipping.

I don't mind waiting either. We've waited for so long already. Also, if the world ends on the 21st we'd sure look silly paying for upgraded shipping.

But if a majority of the group wants to do the early shipping, just let me know and I can PP the $9.50 for it.

Based on the PMs I've received, the general consensus is to pay for the expedited shipping. The other thing I forgot to mention is that I'd rather this break happen on the 21st rather than after, especially with the holidays and what not. I fully plan on breaking all 5 cases the 21st, and having everything sorted, packed, and shipped the next day.

So my preference would be to pay for the expedited shipping.

My guess is late this week, early next, seeing that they released Bowman Sterling a week and a half before product launch.

It's Christmas, no need to rush...a few extra days at this point is no biggie...but will do whatever everyone agrees on.

Alright, we are going to go ahead and roll the dice with BO, and stick with the free shipping option.

I'm checking Twitter, Facebook, and Topps' Website every day to see if a final checklist has been posted. Once it has, I'll provide a second (and final) analysis to use if I have to auto-draft for anyone. The only person to send me a pre-draft list is Badsims, so if anyone else wants to do the same, go right ahead. Otherwise, I'll use what I provide on the second go around.

They're coming from retail, not hobby. Still crazy, though. Those die cuts are pretty awesome!
