Default Topps Mayo - now January 21

Did anyone else notice this or can confirm? Looks like getting "on the card autos" in on time is a problem for all card companies. First Ultimate, then SPA, and now Mayo. This is good news for Contenders for next week

this is good news........... no redemptions and less competition for Contenders (they're different, but the less FB the better).

Mayo will be a novelty and I doubt will hold it's value compared to Contenders. IMHO. I will still probably buy a box or two of Mayo cause it looks "cute".

My personal experience has been it's not the best rip and flip but with some of the SP auto's you can get lucky. One of the keys is to hold some of the real cheap auto's and hope they make it in the years to come, especially at the skill positions.

Two different types of products really. Mayo is for set builders and Contenders is more about the rookie auto hits. With the parallels in Mayo and the unique hits I think it could make the better rip and flip. Long term because of the rookie Auto's contenders in the better choice.

does anyone who busts cases really care about long term value? i'm going to bust 3-4 cases and have 90% of it sold within the first 3 days. after that, i could care less about the value.

this "cute" product, as you put it, will have much better content $ for $ than Contenders.

i'm not trying to win......... it was just a straight forward opinion from someone who doesn't "collect" cards in the usual sense.

Default Locked in on a case of Mayo

I am glad I locked in on a case of Mayo. The price seems to be edging up & its 3 weeks away from release. Now I am thinking I should have rolled the dice & bought a couple more cases.

Anyone else getting in on it? I've got a few cases on the way. This will be my first major rip and flip (while hoping I get some nice pc stuff). I'm excited because mostly because it should be fun as I actually like the process of sorting everything. This will be a long week of waiting!

I hope that's not the case as that'll be a crowded week.

That is a ton of product to hit the market on a given week. I wonder what product will be the odd man out on sales?

You don't have to wonder...It'll be the one I chose to go with

I know they want stuff out because of the Super Bowl, but that's a bad idea for everyone. At least Mayo could have a longer shelf life if people like it enough to want to build sets...but it'd be bigger initially if it didn't have the competition it looks like it'll have now.

However, after all the posts of NT breaks I'll probably try some of that since I haven't yet.

Well, I emailed Topps to try and get a date and their response was:

Product Desc: 2008 Mayo Football
Delivery Date : By Monday, 01/26/09
Street Date : Wednesday, 01/28/09

I also told them they should really try to keep their site up to date

Why's that? It won't be a problem that it's going up against all those other products. I'm bummed because I have to wait longer to scratch my ocd itch of sorting all that stuff, lol.
