Hopefully you guys will be next to the Topps booth like last time. Will you be taking orders for pickup at the National? I'm planning ahead.

In previous years, they have almost always required the pack/box redemptions to be Hobby.

yea, they don't usually accept retail because they prefer you get your boxes/packs right at the show

Do you think they will cap the amount of Bowman Platinum you can open? I hope so....

Most likely 1 box per person then you have to get back in line. That's the usual.

That's going to be a wicked long line.

I would be surprised if they allow the redemption during the Wednesday (half-day) sneak peek. Thursday won't be that bad. If you want multiple sets, that's the day to do it. Although, I could see them stamping your hand or something to make sure you don't double-dip.

Looks like Ill be standing in Topps line early Day 1 and or Day 2.

Yeah, that's the flaw that other companies have that Panini doesn't. Panini runs it all day. Once the other guys are out, they're out so you need to hit them first.

Yep. You going to be staying at the Panini booth for most of the day or walking around? Have to meet up like we said.

Wednesday Sneak Peek will be all Panini. I'm meeting up with some friends from MD on Thursday and that'll be my "walk around" day.

We'll hang out, don't you worry.

Make sure you buy a couple high end Pierre Thomas cards before hand. Meet up with the greasy pro and charge 15x going rate :)!

I've got enough going on without having to deal with a 18 year old who can't bench 50 pounds.

Not saying it will be the same this year, but two years ago in Baltimore, Topps had the Strasburg Heritage redemption available on Wednesday. That's how I got mine.

I know, I was there. If you were smart, you took that card right over to D&A and took the $75 they were offering for them.

The Strasburg Redemption ran all 5 days of the 2010 Baltimore National. I got one on Thursday and sold it to Blowout for $60.

I really wish Topps would have created a Heritage Bryce Harper for this year's chase.

I wasn't smart then. I'm not smart now. :(

I remember camping out at the Panini booth at the last Baltimore show. I've gotten out of football and will probably be at Topps for most of the wax busting. I planned on getting a couple of boxes of Platinum so I might as well go for multiple sets. Bud I'm going with is all football so I'll probably buckle and break some wax with Panini. Looking forward to a good show.

That is not entirely true. Last year it was a complete joke, they would run it every 2 hours or so with 60-70 people in line. Then they would let only 2-3 people at a time open with no limits.

Once the supplies start to dwindle, they put limits. First 3 days are balls out.
