Of course, this is Panini Derangement Syndrome.

Topps could make a product that had slivers of gold plated cat #@#@#@#@ and people would not only buy it, they'd openly defend it and bash Panini for not making something similar.

What Magic is is 2013 Precision with uglier cards.

I see what your saying, and I would like to say that I have no been breaking any wax lately other then retail, but what makes these card companies think they can just flat out lie about their products? What Panini said on its Contenders sell-sheet was so far from the truth its a joke.

This.

As I said, I am an HOFer collector and was really looking forward to collecting the HOF autos from this set like I did in 2010, since the design is awesome.

The monetary question is how many people planning to rip & flip this product and sell the HOF autos to collectors like me are now going to take a financial bath due to the lack of HOF & superstar autos.

According to this checklist he is in it still and Troy Aikman has a mini 48 auto too

I stand corrected.

After looking at the checklist I'm happy as a Texans fan. I see Andre Johnson, Foster, Schaub, James Casey and JJ Watt autos.

2) No superstar autos...no Brady, Peterson, or either of the Mannings....

No wonder Topps didn't release the checklist early....if I had pre-ordered this product, I'd be pretty pissed off, especially given that the sell sheet features a Elway/Luck dual auto and Elway didn't even end up in the set.
There is no Peyton Manning,Tom Brady,Aaron Rodgers,or Matt Ryan autos in Prizm either.But rubes keep buying and this is how companies treat rubes. Get used to it.

The advertised Elway/Luck booklet is on the checklist.

I'm watching a case break on ripkings right now, and it's painful. It made me make up my mind about buying a box of this......and as I type this out they just hit an Alfred Morris auto, but that doesn't make up for the 2 Harnish autos, and mulitple Criner autos and Ram autos they've pulled.

I love the way it looks so I will hopefully bust a box for Valentine's Day.

But wouldn't you think there would be some not-so-crafty people who would have listed them already?

It is a good product. $100 sounds about right.

My LCS has it for $89. Obviously $11 doesn't seem like a lot but I guess it is in determining if you break even or not

3 Autos a box, plus the SPs. Going to pickup a couple boxes tomorrow

I was very excited for this product, but I #@#@#@#@ you not on the case break I was in. There were 10 dupe auto's with a non dupe auto of Trent Richardson. The product has been massively disappointing overall.
