it won't drive people out of the industry. there will still be plenty of cases to go aorund. ....... what it will do is allow for the products to hold their value (at least for longer than a week).

Yes, cards will hold their value and in some cases will increase their value, but many collectors collect because it's a relatively inexpensive hobby, in moderation. We look at a product like 2009 Topps Series 1. Will we see a price spike in this because it will appear as they didn't produce as many as past years? So over the last few years I was paying $2.50 per pack, now with the production based on orders, I'm going to pay 3.50 per pack for a low-end product because the supply might dry up sooner than before. I'm just saying the guy who is set that he is going to only spend so much over a period of time is seeing the price go up, he may find another hobby. There is probably a better way to say what I'm trying to say, but I haven't figured it out yet.

low end products won't dry up.......... even if 2009 Topps series 1 is "sold out" there will still be plenty to go aorund for years. unless they insert a Jeter/Mantle type card, the prices won't jump much. and if there is a Jeter/Mantle type card, prices will spike for a couple of weeks then drop back to normal. it's the mid to high end products that will actually dry up.

Yeah it will help the cases hold their value. With so many products out there for 2008/2009 collectors will have lots to chose from both at the high end and low end. If prices go up we will just have to deal with it or buy less of the products.

How exactly do you produce to order? For a set like triple threads where each card is numbered to fixed production, how do you produce less if people dont order the product?

I've always wondered how many cases are produced for a base product like Series 1.

TT is a one product that might be the exception. But what they can do is shrink or expand the player roster which would eliminate or increase the base cards and/or inserts.

Topps Series 1 is a great example of this. If low orders come in, boxes break out better, if there are more we'll get less inserts (typically speaking on say the blacks or the golds).

Well *none* of the hobby shops in TEXAS received ANY cases of their topps chrome basketball. I had to order my boxes on-line to get it. The cost for dealers is now 80$/box from dealernet.. thats not much of a profit if they are to sell them. I talked to a few shops here in Dallas (there are 3 that are HTA) and none of them got their cases and were all contacted by Topps saying they were sorry. But, as a consolation prize, they get to choose one extra case of whatever they want that comes out between now and march. Uhm... yay? I told one of the shops to get Hardwood, since that looks like a good product for a good price. But we'll see. I did manage to get a box of the retail from Target and out of 8 packs, pulled 6 refractors .. that's pretty unheard of for retail!

actually retail chrome has been very good for refractors, it worked that way in Football.

80 a box? Then how do people make money when I saw them going for like 67 at a card show

Probably still holding onto factory direct stock. My LCS had the same issue with the Chrome BK. I think he managed to get his, but pretty sure he was on the phone giving them his opinion

I just picked up a box of '08-09 Topps Chrome at my LCS for EDIT this past saturday. I was shocked he was selling it for that since they are pretty much going for $80 online!

Please no mentioning of others' pricing - MoD
