What does this product do go up or down before release?
If there is any movement, I think it will be upward.

Bottom at this point may be $700, there are still 3 weeks until release, it could still take a crap.

Yeah, and the Titanic couldn't sink. This rookie class is very weak. I'm not saying it will take a crap, I am saying that it can. Arrogant statements like that is what causes people to lose money in this hobby.

But WTF do I know, I've only been doing this since 1990. I don't know anything.

rookie class is very weak? 5 running backs in the first round?? mcfadden weak?? this time last year everyone was saying how the 2007 class was weak.

EVERYTHING thing 2006 football took an absolute dump: sp authentic, spx, contenders, exquisite, sterling, finest, bowman chrome, etc etc. only one product stayed way above presell: 2006 topps chrome football. it was 625-650 a case out of the gate. if you can find them now, 900+

my "emotion-free" opinion stating 2008 topps chrome will not take a crap is based on trends. regardless of the "weakness" there is still a huge following. i dont see any "arrogance" in that so save your insults for someone more deserving.

I can get a case of 2006 Topps Chrome football right now for $690. I can get retail cheaper. It took a crap.

I wasn't calling you arrogant, the attitude that "this can't happen" clearly is an arrogant one. Don't take it personal, I just don't want anyone taking it in the shorts.

I think that the 2008 football class is pretty solid actually. There are quite a few QB prospects that we may not see in games for a couple of years, but I think there will be 3-4 starting QBs in the NFL that come out of this draft. In addition, there are a handful of promising RBs that should get their chance at playing time this year.

I would jump all over a 2006 Hobby Case (or 10 cases) @ $690, boxes are still strong sellers at 70-75 + S/H, and the season hasn't even started yet.

I like Topps Chrome because it gives you the WHOLE season to sell the HOT player, by the time Bow Chrome comes out its playoffs and all the ups and downs are over.
Topps chrome also has a significant difference between Hobby and retail ( blue refs & Xfractors) . Not more of the same like most other products.

690 a case? i'd take it all. thats an absolute steal. even at that price its still up from presell. everything else 2006 went waaaay down, some over 50%.

my point is, considering football product, topps chrome football is the safest bet to put your money in. as far as the class of 2008 being week, thats your entitled opinion. i feel at least one of these RBs will break out be it mcfadden, mendenhall, jones, stewart, forte, johnson or someone else. maybe a QB, matt ryan? one guy can carry this, 2 guys, 1k+ case.

i remember a slew of people trash talking the 2007 class. that didnt stop me from buying 30 cases of chrome. i'm glad i did.

Remember it was a 10 box case.

I'm not saying your analysis is wrong. All I'm saying is there is no guarantee. I'm placing a safe bet on the retail version of this.

I'd bet on Forte as the breakout. Unless Chicago obtains another player, he's the RB on a team that is going to rely on Kyle Orton to manage the game, unless they lose their minds and go with Grossman again.

10 box? topps chrome hobby was 12 box. i still have four cases left out of 30. i'm glad i went big on chrome that year. it helped ease the sting on all the other stuff i took a loss on.

Actually you are correct, it is a 12 box case. Makes it an even better deal.

2008 TC FB will not take a dump BUT it souldn't be gouged up like it was in 2006 either.
It is what it is regardless of how strong the RC crop is (which hasn't shown much but its very early) People will buy boxes of chrome because A. they're cheap and B. you have a chance to get a nice return if you get lucky and hit a big auto. While I'd never pay more then $60 -$65 MAX for a box of this product because I know better, it always sells well early for those needing a rip.


2006 TC Hobby for $690. per 12 bx case ($57.50 a box is a steal as I paid $52. per in 06) and I would take a few cases as well but thats not for this board as its not a BO product.

What is SCN's role in the hobby ? Is it like Card Trade where everything is GREAT in this industry according to spindoctors like Narz and Kelnhofer ?
Are they are saying TTT is a good rip from a collectors standpoint or from a dealers standpoint ? HUGE difference. Yeah you get some nice PC cards if you're ripping to collect but 99 out of 100 cases are huge losers if you are flipping.

Also amazing what running a 4.24 40 will do. Although the lad has looked good this preseason....let's see when the games count how he does.
