Why does his auto look so shaky?

Maybe he was doing that hand vibration thing at the time of signing.

Hopefully these are case inserted and not some type of incentive card.

I love the Cryptozoic Card sets, but I really dislike how they are making it close to impossible to put together a full autograph set. Started with Flash Season 1 and the Harrison Wells auto. Then they put out Gotham and made those Duals and Triples in extremely limited numbers. And now this with the Flash. I love the products that they produce, but I am starting to get turned off by this. Are there only 12 fans of the FLASH? I understand that they are trying to create a demand for the product, but come on - make the odds of pulling a treasured auto more reasonable.

I don't think Crypto has ever done an incentive card. Wow he only signed 12? That's a bit nutty. Haven't caught up on this show after S1. Set looks fun tho.

Sure the odds are long but at least they got Grant to sign at all for the set. I'm sure that Crypto happily would have put more of his autos in the set if they could have but 12 was likely the best they could do from a cost effective standpoint.

I'm just happy to have him in the set to begin with and at least have a small shot to get him rather than none at all. People complain when they can't get Amell to sign for Arrow and when Grant didn't sign for Season 1 and now that he has signed for Season 2 there's still complaints, haha. People can't ever be pleased but as far as I'm concerned something in this case is better than nothing. The odds suck but it's awesome that he's there at all. Means there's hope of him signing for future seasons as well, so all isn't lost if you don't get one from this set.

Yeah I heard about that....Perhaps his fellow CW stars should let him know he's priced way too high.
Only folks normally hitting $200 or so are like Hiddleston, Chris Evans, etc.

If his con pricing is any indication of his cost to sign cards then 12 makes total sense.

When I preordered 2 cases of this months ago I had absolutely zero chance at pulling a GG auto. Today I find out that have a very slightly above zero chance. I can not view this as a bad thing!

Tatianna had 2 cards that were incentives for Orphan Black. Arrow Prop was an incentive for Arrow S3. I think they did Camren as a retro incentive for Gotham S1.

Official Pix is doing a private signing with him and at first, the price was $199 for an 8x10 but apparently they received so many complaints about the price, they said they went back to his people & they lowered the price to $129.

A look at all 3!

if 300 cases, 4% chance?

can't be much different than odds for a evans/stan or other comparison of another product i'm not aware of. i'm in!!

I'm at work, so I don't have time to post the picture, but George just posted a Case Check on his Twitter and it looks like a really great product. Really like the design on the Wardrobe cards

Ikr! Could you imagine if one of those was in the "test case"

Slick looking product though.
Hoping my shop gets his boxes in before he stops his 10% off everything in store sale

I'd like to know for sure just from a curiosity standpoint, but I would assume that in opening the test case, they have an idea of what should be in it (if not exactly know). If I have say 6 autos I'm seeding into cases, each case should have 4 autos, every case should have autos A,B,C, every even case has D, every odd case has E and every tenth case has F then if I pulled case 25 off the line, I'd expect to find autos A,B,C and E.

Plus, probably one of the first few cases packed too. I'm sure they don't want to pack everything, open a random case and find out oopps... you really screwed up.

Once again, one of those things I'd find interesting on the production and pack out of product.

Strategy is one thing, execution is another.

Without spending too much time on the details, I'll simply explain that if the "test case" contained something really special, we would ask the printer to replace it in the hopper when the packout proceeds, so it ends up in a customer's hands. I believe there have been a couple of occasions in the past when we pulled rare redemption cards and on both of those occasions those cards were packed out (again) and put into general circulation.

Regarding the contents of the case check that we do receive, they end up going to lucky NPN participants or winners of my Twitter promotions.

Thanks George for this info! And thanks for the Twitter contests, I'm hoping I'll win one soon! We do appreciate them.

This is looking like a pretty stellar set. Looks like Crypto may be hitting another one out of the park. I may need to buy a case.

Don't think so.

Guessing in the same range as S1 which was probably about 375?
