Default To anyone buying Knockout.. BE CAREFUL

After getting my teeth knocked in with the 5 cases of Series 4 I purchased from Blowout for $750 each I can't believe I was even considering buying another Topps product. I like Leaf MMA and just wish people would give it more credit and the prices would equal those of Topps. I know Topps has been around a long time but that just makes it easier for them to screw customers and then say "oh well".
I sent a email to Customer support this morning asking if all the signers on the checklist will be in the product or if they are going to do like Series 4 and just let everyone find out they are not. The response I got was classic Topps......
We do not have a list of signers to release to the public.

topps cs team


Really?? 2 days before release you do not have a checklist??
I know the cards look great.
I know there are still going to be big money cards of GSP and others.
But why does there have to be so many secrets surrounding a checklist.
Bait and switch?

Sorry for rant.

Blowout does have a checklist posted already, obviously it is all subject to change, but there IS a checklist up, and it is pretty comprehensive.

Usually my distributor gets his Topps cases in today if it is a wednesday release, but still nothing has come in. I wonder if it is even FINALLY coming out wednesday or if there will be another delay. I have four cases on order, but I am considering selling two of them just so I don't have as much at risk.


I will take a bait and switch over a bait and don't even put the best hits into the product lol. Cro Cop would have been great in series four, but it would have end up being a $50 autograph anyways, so I don't feel TOO slighted. I actually ended up liking series four, especially with case prices coming down. Still some good hits out there to be found.

I know there is a checklist but that does not mean crap. I guess I should not have said "Bait & Switch" because I mean "Bait & Delete". That is what I am worried about because they will not say who is in the product. I specifically asked if the Signers on the checklist were secured and they will not comment.
That tells me NO!!
Yes Series 4 is an ok product at $450 a case. NOT $750 a case before all the First time signers were pulled with no warning.

If it hasn't come in by now today, then I would say it would be delayed.

Not necessarily. Topps are well known to ship their stuff on the last second AND they are usually very good with street dates.

I still hope that it won't be pushed back further.

We'll find out in a few days.

It's out. I just picked up two boxes at my LCS. Nice looking product. Only complaint is that the relic cards are identical to every UFC release Topps has put out. Honestly, you can't differentiate them from any of the previous sets.

I think I did pretty well. Got a Marc Coleman 1/1 parallel in one box and a Marc Coleman first time auto 1/8 in the second box. Also, both boxes had 5 autos and 4 relics, as opposed to 4 and 4. The extra auto in each box was a TUF auto. One of them was on-card and the other was a sticker. I also got a Cain Velasquez auto and a Jon Jones relic/auto.

I'll have scans up in the other sport box break section in a few hours when I get home from work.

I just finished busting two cases, and while I didn't post scans I did post my thoughts on the set over in the breakdown threads. I personally am a big fan of it, and think it is the best set Topps has put out yet.

Each pack only has one hit, so I'm not sure what you're asking.

Do you remember what was the first hit that came out from the box? How hits are placed in the box?

Hit 1 = Relic
Hit 2 = Auto/Relic
and etc.

Speaking of packs, are they packed in 2 rows of 4 or 1 stack of 8 packs?

I'm asking this because we have a group break coming up and my spots all over the boxes

They are in rows of four and packaged like Sterling. And there is no rhyme or reason to how they come out, so quit trying to cheat in your group break

Good to know that all hits are mixed and there's no specific order of how hits come out and no, I'm not trying to cheat because I'm not a host.

Actually, let me see...mmmmmmmmmmmm....cheating

Yeah me too. Stocked up with five extra cases. As much as my crackhead tendencies to open them up is kicking in, I have been good and they are sitting sealed stored away. The price is steadily rising, I wonder how high cases get up to.

Five cases?! I am happy I got one box LOL...can't wait to break it...every box I have seen has at least one hit worth the price of admission.

I ripped 1/2 case last night. I did pretty well. I have 5 cases coming to me. Product is loaded so far no dud boxes. Just wondering how these booklet will sell. Seems like everyone that is buying on ebay is reselling on ebay. No real collectors buying UFC to keep for themselves. lol
