Well that was fast. Went from 6 or more sellers on eBay with boxes/cases down to 2. Both over $100/box now.

Think orders for this and the 40th anniversary were due when dealers were still reeling from significant losses on pretty much all of 2016 star wars products.

Wow, interesting catching up on the excitement from this morning! I admit I was mega wrong about this one, I never would have imagined 12 sketch cards in a case!!! Plus autos and print plates as the 2nd hit in a box. Also shocked at an estimated print run of only 375 cases! If this information had been posted 3 days ago, I would have thought this was a sick April Fools joke!

Well, you know what generally happens after a great release or 2.....

Topps added a second preorder period (has passed now) to GF2 so I assume orders were low during the first preorder then they re-opened after RO S1 released. Galactic Files Reborn may be the release that ends the hot streak. In the meantime, I will enjoy these next couple!!!

He got it from CI probably. I had 3 in my cart and went to checkout and they were gone. I just got 3 from BO instead.

Wow just checked BO's new price. I was reluctant at $1049-1059 this morning, but glad I pulled the trigger then.

Holy smokes! It's like when gas stations jack up the price on the gas already in their tanks based on the new barrel prices.

In all fairness, they've taken a bath on a LOT of SW products tho I'd guess. I can't say I blame them upping this. Even at the $1300 price, if you get 9-12 sketches, plate, and 7 autos (even if 4-5 suck), it's a decent price. Not a great price or anything. But decent.

I thought production would be around the 600 mark, never thought it'd be this low tho. Was cut to 0, so actually first time in yrs I've bought on the 2ndary market. I'm in at $1054.95 and thought that was too high

Funny thing about this product is that I went from not being super excited about opening to my case, to now itching to get it!

1 case is now nearly 2 cases. Even though past products said you got 2 hits, we all knew once you hit the auto, sketch or printing plate, the rest of the box was done, because there was little value in the patch/medallion.

Now you get double the # of parallels and most boxes have a legit 2 hits!

Also there will be fewer base sets out there, so prices should stay fairly good there as well.

My guess is that it is similar to series 1, because the same amount was made.

78 vs 75 artists and in series 1 you got about 6 sketches in a case and in Series 2 you get nearly 1 per box, but production is half.

Quality overall was pretty good in series 1, and what I have seen online so far for series 2, I think we can expect the same.

Don't forget about a 25% chance to hit a base 1/1 in each case!

This is how crazy good the odds are. In a given case you have a:

27% chance at pulling a Red base 1/1
5% chance to get a 1/1 Patch
23% chance to get a dual, triple or 1/1 auto (Orange or Plate)

You average 1.84 non-auto printing plates per case!

In series 1 you only had a 40% chance to get a #'ed auto in your case, were Series 2 you should get 2.35 per case.

Also with getting 26 or so Gray Parallels and 13 Gold Parallels per case, I think you will see more people chasing these sets.
