How do you feel about this change?

I waited to see what it did to prices before saying anything, but I'm going to go with I'm not a fan of this change. It's great if you're selling because now you know which wardrobes have to be priced ridiculously high. It's horrible if you're a collector because you get to overpay for trying to put together a set. Arrow lost me as a fan in season 4 because it just wasn't the same show; so, it doesn't bother me much with this set. But if this carries over to Gotham Season 2, that's a real bummer. That's when I'll get to live with what Arrow fans are experiencing now I figure.

As a seller, I like it. As a buyer, I hate it.

I'm assuming because everyone was asking what the SPs are, they decided to just print it on the card however, I'd just assume have everything stamped from a consistency standpoint.

Rob from gogtslive said they will be numbering things /99 and less from now on. So I'd expect to see it in other products as well.

I wish I could buy a box or 2 to take a chance on a redemption myself, but I just can't justify the price. $80+ is just too high a gamble to get a couple $10-15 cards. But boy am I tempted haha.

Think about it this way. A base set sells on ebay for ~ 20 bucks and you get one in the box. Then your auto and wardrobe should sell for 15 minimum. So an 80 box you could sell the parts for 50 and your gamble is only 30 bucks which isn't much worse than buying a random box of anything at Target/Walmart.

And... I'd recommend that no one buys a box at Target or Walmart. A majority of the time its a guaranteed dumpster fire of an investment. :P

I don't always buy cards at Walmart or Target, but when I do I always hate myself the next morning

Does anyone know if any of the autos were short printed? I pulled #KC2 which is Katie Cassidy as Black Canary. I have only seen two come up on eBay, and only heard of one other getting pulled... are these SP's like the Harrison Wells auto in Flash season 1? I only ask because I have seen multiples of most of the other ones....

I'd think they are like any other redemption they've put out which will say congrats on the front and then an address box on the back and a foil like the auto/wardrobes.

Looks like a redemption was found! MASEO'S COMPOUND BOW is marked as REDEEMED on their website. All the others are still marked as available.

After much deliberation in my brain haha. I decided to pull the trigger on a case. I was offered a super good deal so the temptation to make the gamble was too much. I know the odds are beyond slim, but it would have bugged me more not to try since I'm a huge fan of the show. My case arrives Tuesday! Fingers/toes crossed!

I'll show off the complete case break in the box break section later, but I just had to show this off! I'm only 8 boxes in and what a case! I'm doing backflips because I just pulled this beauty! The Arsenal/Arrow dual costume /19!!!!!

I love this card! But it also has me seeing $$$ so it's gonna be a tough choice. My case also had 2 yes 2 Arsenal costume cards /99 and I already had the Arrow /99 from ebay. So I already have both swatches on other cards now. But man this dual is beautiful. No idea what to do but I just had to show you guys!
