Yeah I figured they would prob keep the same rules they put into place last year. On preview night there were people busting 5 10 15+ cases and getting thousands of packs, so the next day they made it 2 boxes.

Can't blame them, if they let everyone break cases and cases the packs would get super watered down and not be that desirable.

It is a two box limit. However. There the line is dead right now. Was busy earlier.

Topps screwed up the platinum set. You do not get a 25 card set. The set is 100 cards and you get 25. Each card is numbered to 125. So you may or may not get puig.

Correct.

What is funny is that the guys at topps had no idea what they were handing out in regards to the platinum set.

Hope all enjoying the show. Hope I will be able to pick up some of the Topps promotional items from those able to get more than one or looking to make a few bucks. Wish I could have gotten to Chicago. Maybe Cleveland next year. Make the most of it.

aaahhh...a great 1st 1/2 day! picked up 63 diff-1966 Topps including Yaz & Marichal, a Lance Parrish Archives auto an a Hernan Perez auto for a friend. Got to meet a few nice board members as well.

only bummer was Panini subbing the 2nd VIP set in the Super VIP pack for some Football HOF Class of 2013 pack.

Do you guys think selling my extra VIP pass outside the entrance to the Nat is ok?

If I purchase a gift certificate to use at the National tomorrow, would it be processed by tomorrow or would it stall until after the National?

Anyone want my VIP Photo Op tickets? Selling for $5 each (have 4 Photo Op tickets), or trading for VIP auto tickets. We can meet somewhere at the show.

PM me, thanks!

What's the best option if I'm only going to attend on Friday and Sunday (damn you work) ...... Should I buy a VIP or just pay to get in each day? I like the extras that come with the VIP, I just don't know if it's worth the extra $$$ since I'm only going for 2 days. Also, I'm not going for any autos, just going to bust some product to get the promo giveaways.

Congrats on the nice pickups! The show is amazing!

I too was disappointed with the Panini VIP situation. I complained to the people running the Panini booth and the people who run the National and noone seemed to care. At least Panini is better than Topps.

I have to say that so far I am dissapointed with some aspects of the show this year compared to last year. They sold way too many All Access VIP passes and now you have to wait in long lines for your autographs which is the selling point for those tickets (that you don't have to wait in long lines). I got out of the Pappas line last night and immediately had to go into a holding pattern to get into the line for Mel Renfro. I can only imagine the nightmare it is going to be on Saturday when the idiots at TriStar scheduled 3 VIPs at the same time. Likeise the VIP reception was swamped and you had to get in line at least a half hour early to get Gooden or Anderson which meant I missed the food; which looked better than last year.

From the sounds of it, the Topps Redemption is a bust this year. I was going to try and get in line this morning for one of my Bowman Platinum boxes. Add to the fact that Topps did nothing for VIP members and they are proving to be worthless. I went by the booth last night to buy 6 boxes of the minis and was told I could only purchase 2. I busted them last night (except for 6 packs for redemptions). The first pack I opened was the steroid express - Colon, Braun, Cabrerra, and A-Rod. I got two memorabilia cards and no autos. I did sign up for the Topps Meet and Greet on Friday, so I think I will voice my opinion on their lack of appreciation for VIPs and crappy redemption then.

Since I missed out at the All Star FanFest, I immediately went to Steiner Sports and bought a game used Yankees base. I bought first base from the 1st and 2nd innings of the game against the Indians on June 03, 2013. It is awesome! A-Rod autographed jersey's are going for $140 which are cheaper than Machados. I offered the dealer $50 for the bum.

I agree with your opinion of the situation
