Default 2011 Topps Chrome case - need info

Does anyone remember what the presell was for 2011 Chrome?

The reason I'm asking is because I am debating on picking up 2 cases of 2012, busting 1 and sitting on the other.

2011 had Newton and a couple decent guys to drive it, but I think that Luck and RG3 will carry this product even stronger by themselves, before the other rookies are even taken in to consideration.

If I remember right, it started out at $750-770.

Thats about where I was thinking too, but looking for a second opinion.

If the 2011 cases are going for $1400-1600, I'm thinking it might not be a bad idea to grab an extra 2012 for $820 now and hope for a Luck/RG3 showdown.

We are thinking the same thing so I hope we are both right.

great minds do indeed think alike. My only issue is going to be coming up with $1640 to buy them! (or at least $400 in the next 4-5 weeks to get the presell price).

I think these will be $1000+ cases before week 3, possibly even before the season starts.

I was thinking of getting 6 cases but I love this stuff. Id probably crack it. If I bust a few cases and get a nice pull or two id be happy. I'm sure id wind up cracking it all. Hehe

I don't think this years chrome will be as strong as last years once they start playing football...... you had alot of QB's in the top of last years draft, then mark ingram, julio jones, randall cobb all sold well..... there was alot pushing chrome. this year you basically just got the 2 QB's that everybody's really interested in.

Or you could buy 3 cases, sell 2. The profit pays for your 3rd case...

Theres also Richardson and Blackmon, along with several other good receivers like Wright, Floyd, and Quick. Plus there's Doug Martin and Brandon. All of which I listed could make an immediate impact for their team and be very collectible.
