Not excited about buying boxes.

Looking forward to buying some singles.

I would be excited but still am waiting on redemptions from 2010... None for me until Topps gets their butts in gear and sends me what I'm owed...

Man I'm torn. The 2 reasons above are what's making me not wanna buy. Can't stand that I'm waiting on big redemptions and not knowing when or if they will ever get fulfilled.

What if I took the $150 I would spend on a box, and bought singles? I could easily buy the cards I want, and get good hits instead of the gamble of a box.

But it's the gamble that draws me in, the fun of opening with the family, that's keeps me buying.

Yeah, it's always fun to open packs, but it really sucks when you buy a box and your biggest hit is Dennis Hallman...

What is the biggest hit you can get in mma anymore? One of the reasons I went to singles (and all the damn redemptions...). How many times can you pull a GSP or Anderson auto and have it mean something? MMA cards were fun for a while, but I'll stick to watching the events.

You guys are right on about this. Remember round 1&2? Getting a GSP or Silva hit was huge, now it's "wow a base GSP auto....." You can buy an auto of either for the cost of 2 bloodlines packs.

i always love the Knockout release as the big autos seems to be loaded in these. that said, the UFC product gets so watered down with the same autos in every release. GSP and Silva autos only get cheaper with every new release, but i'm hopeful that Topps and the UFC features more female fighters and Strikeforce guys to help out. otherwise, they're gonna have to either short print the big stars or cut down on products to maintain value.

Well they only have 10 females signed to the UFC, so not much to choose from, I know Zingano gets an auto in KO or 2013 Finest. And the former Strikeforce fighters have been signing too much as it is. All they need to do is have 3 releases a year(Topps seems to love Finest and KO, so those 2, and a low end set like MOT), but focus on 1st time signers, there are literally hundreds of current and former fighters, they could get autos of. But nope, we will get more Struve, Millers, and the like. Where is Barao? And old timers like Goodridge, Shamrock, Jimmerson, Hackney,Mezger. Topps could produce a quality product, but why should they? Everyone online bitches about them, but will still buy the porduct, I have not bought anything besides a few boxes of 2012 finest, since MOT, and won't buy anymore product, until they realize they have to switch it up.

Exact reason i'm getting out of the UFC Card Hobby. Topps has killed the UFC Card market by saturating it with the same tired stuff. Silva, GSP and Jones have tons of Autos now and half are not even numbered making them dirt cheap. All the redemptions sucks as well some of the better guys don't even sign i still have a Aldo redemption from KO never seen yet.

Only person I PC is Megumi Fujii because she is a good friend of mine. Other than that, I basically have just one auto of current or former champions.

And now the wait game for this product really begins. Looks like it was pushed to late May now. This to me is always their problem with UFC releases, takes a good while to get them out and even then there are loads of redemption cards that take months, if not years, to fill.

I don't see anybody running through Cruz if he's 100% not even Barao.

I could see Barao destroying Cruz... even if he's 100% healthy. Barao is a animal!

Well, that looks like it won't be happening for some time. Tell Antonio to keep his head up, he will be back.

Default Anybody buying this?

I know this is confirmed to release next Wednesday 22nd per Topps on Twitter. Is anyone buying this? i usually break at least 1 case of every Topps UFC product. I am afraid there will be little resale value though with the market the way it is. Thoughts?
