Maybe wait to see what it looks like first and base your decision on that

Wait 2 weeks until after the product's release to bust. Then hold everything through the remainder of the season. And finally sell during the offseason.

In all seriousness do whatever you want. If you've never busted a case of chrome I say got for it. It is a fun break!

I'd sell it right away if you can make a profit, with the new news of panini being the only cards that can have luck's auto on them, this should tank pretty quick!!

To answer the question, I'd hold the cases and flip them sealed. Not too thrilled about this rookie class, unless you hit a big colored refractor of luck/rg3/wilson

I should probably sell the goods, but I am gonna rip my nearly 2 cases in record time in full junkie addiction fashion.

I was also saving about $15 per paycheck for the past few months to buy one huge haul of retail as soon as it comes out. Beyond excited for Chrome.

like the other guy said that's just for memorabilia and autographed items, not cards. NFL doesnt allow exclusives for cards i believe.

wow just like another thread, where'd you learn to read?? I said they can't have any luck auto's.......pretty sure that fits under autographs......granted yes there will still be luck colored refractors.....but would you shell out $1k a case to know you don't even have a chance to pull a luck auto, and the chance at a big name rookie auto just got split in half (luck/bob3) Anyone that preordered topps, should dump there cases now before people start realizing this!!

topps chrome cards probably were already made months ago and possibly signed so there is a slight chance he may be in this product, since he does have stuff in other topps products, but if he is not in the product then I would say this stuff quick because its going to drop quickly

Again, they can't legally prevent other companies from getting autographs on NFL licensed cards.

If it hasn't been released yet, they have to pull them, I sense a delay in topps chrome coming out, because like you said I'm sure they have already been signed, but since they arent released yet, It would be a violation of the contract to release them after the contract was signed!!

It's not worth the effort.... I'm done.

He has a few clues. I suggest you read his blog because A) It's great, and B) He knows what he's talking about when it comes to cards, products and licensing. Just some supporting, and regardless of what medium it was conveyed with, reliable information.

Pertinent Info: "While Panini did get Luck for an exclusive deal in memorabilia, it will not extend to trading cards. NFL rules prohibits players from signing exclusive deals with trading card companies, preventing issues like the one the NBA faces today as Michael Jordan and LeBron James do not sign cards for lone NBA licensee Panini because of their deals with Upper Deck."
