2 reasons for my lack of interest...

1) Topps is flooding the market in my opinion. Too many relics & sticker autos. All of their stuff has a ton of these now, and they all look the same.

2) Topps is slacking on their redemptions. They owe me a TON, and I'm not buying any new UFC stuff until I start seeing stuff getting fulfilled.

Early breaks of this look tough at best. Gonna be really curious to see more and more breaks tomorrow.

I opened two cases and did very well. It isn't their strongest release, but it is a solid release all around. Out of 12 boxes, 10 of them had either a 1/1, or a /8 Parallel of some kind (base, insert, relic, or auto) in them. Each box seems to have a "larger" hit.

If that holds up then yes, I will for sure go back and edit my comment. I hope Chris on YouTube opens up some of this today just so I can have a taste before I go to the store next weekend.

Out of two cases I got: 2 Jon jones autos, rousey auto, Diaz auto relic, GSP auto, two /8 red autos, Cigano red ink auto /15, 2 print plate jumbo relics, two bad print plates, 4 /8 base, two number /8 relics (one a dual relic) on top of 100 or so additional hits. It isn't as strong as Knockout, but it is an all around solid release for sure.


At roughly $15 a hit, you really can't get killed to bad.

It also helps that the relics of Rousey seem to be selling incredibly well compared to a normal mat relic. You've reversed my course, I think I might stop by the store today and get a few mini-boxes or even a full box to hold me over until next week. I saw all your cards and your break looks a lot better than what was first showing up on eBay. Congrats on some of those sales, seems like you'll do very, very well.

Short print run, loaded boxes = could be a surprise hit.

They are thin stock, I just finished opening three packs. Pulled this weird guy, not sure what to make of it.

Damn nice hit on the Nick Diaz, That is a badass card. How much you think you would sell that for?

I sold it already for $699.99. Thought I would get offers but someone hit the Buy it Now within 11 minutes. Not bad for a $20 pack.

I bought three, got a Bisping Flag Patch and a Travis Browne Relic Auto in the other two packs.

Anyone see that a Ronda Rousey mat relic /88 got $43.25? That's gotta be the highest price a mat relic has sold for in quite some time. This stuff really could be the UFC product we were waiting for.

Very nice hit! Nothing wrong with $700, and that is more than I would have thought it would sell, but it makes you wonder if you left money on the table since it was hit so fast? Who knows, but now you can go buy a full case with the profits.
