Default supply and demand for UFC series 4

Is the demand for the series 4 product so low that the prices are being slashed or is it just Topps lowering the prices themselves? I've purchased about 6 boxes myself and am wondering why the price keeps dropping. I know about the autos not being in there when Topps said they would be but aside from that has anyone heard anything else about it? Seems like a good product to me.

Demand is still pretty high I'm guessing because they are still selling on Ebay everyday so am I just not seeing it or what?

Probably because when Knockout comes out, everybody will be spending their cash on that so they're trying to get rid of all the UFC 4 they can right now.

Man it's pretty crazy how cheap these are selling for. Even the case hits are selling for next to nothing. From a collector's point of view it's great, but almost impossible to get any return for a rip and flip. Great time to get some nice Auto's for the pc on the cheap!

Here ya go bro! Personally I think it looks awesome! Hopefully the Cro Cop and Hughes autos are in Knockout since they weren't in series 4.

Series 4 was just about the worst set I have ever seen. Topps should be ashamed. They rush too many products out.

I agree with the fact they rushed it. I was hoping for a good product but I don't hate this one. If anything I think UFC Knockout is being released too soon. It's only going to be about 3 months after the release of series 4.

See, that's what I think. Too many too fast. Maybe that's what the other guy meant. I took it as he meant series 4 came out too quickly but maybe not. I am glad that UFC knockout will be like triple threads though. I think that will be collected like crazy. I don't think the prices will drop on that. I think 2 releases a year.

The fluctuation of case prices on Blowout cards is insane, it was 465 a few days ago, now its back up to 515. Is this common?

I'd say no. Not common at all. The market is going crazy about series 4. Alot of people hate it and alot of people are fine with it and then you have a few people who love it. So it's probably not as hot a product as the others have been plus there are too many boxes and cases out there of the stuff. It's very possible this product will be taken like the 80/90's cards were for baseball.

I think three factors have really hurt interest in the series:

1) Lot ofs first time autos were pulled without advance warning;

2) Lots of boxes and cases are missing hits; and

3) The announcement of the premium brand UFC Knockouts set that is coming out in less than two months.

#2 for sure. Out of 6 boxes I've had two boxes missing something. One an auto and one a relic.

Wow. Yeah, you do only hear the horror stories. I love all the cards I have recieved and missing hits don't bother me a ton if I have purchased a lot of boxes (yes, 6 boxes is a lot to me). I am lucky to buy 1 or 2 boxes of something I really like so 6 for me was incredible. Thanks to blowout for their great prices!

I only bought 2 from blowout and actually the 4 others were cheaper than BO...at the time. I paid $50 the first week for them at a card show. Now prices are basically at $40 which is crazy good for collectors
