Houston, we have a problem!

I was just at the Topps site, and it let me add 3500 of these boxes to my cart before telling me the requested quantity was not available. So looks like possibly 4000 total boxes??? Sneaky of Topps to load ~2000 at first, then to change to quantity after the initial pre-sale... and I really hope that even more aren't added later!

Hopefully this is just an error, otherwise I was so wrong!

Think it was an error, just tried adding 2000 and it didn't work. 1500 worked, though.

Is the Free Shipping pre-order window over? or there is a coupon I don't know about?

If there are that many it would be great. I'm thinking 3 or less.

There was a 24 hour window on the first day of pre-sale (March 2nd) where they offered free shipping.

I'd like to see one of our deeper pocketed members buy the rest of the run for the 150k, flip all the autos and parallels, dump the base sets for the $10 or $15 (or perhaps publicly destroy a large percentage of them thus rendering the remaining existing sets more valuable) and tell us how it turned out.
And also if it was fun.
Doing that.

I'm not that deep pocketed person but i have put in the full amount available, looked at the total and thought what if...? Haha. If anyone were to do this they would not need to sell base sets for $10-$15 as they would control the market on these. Would be a neat experiment for anyone with that extra 150k sitting around lol.

There could be 1977, or 2000, or 2500 or...

I just don't want my joke to get lost in the pages of the thread and the 1977 number to be taken as fact.
Yeah, 1977 is too perfect for Topps to come up with on their own. I just don't get why they're secretive on this one set in particular.

I do like the idea of printing plates being inserted as bonus hits, I wonder what they do with them from these sets, maybe eBay thru their Vault store?

PICS! PICS! PICS!

So there are autograph parallels? Unless all the autos are numbered and BIGGS is a super short print.

There are parallels. The autograph parallels are included in your 3-5 parallels per box. There are pack odds on the back of the box (all the cards are in one pack)

added photos of the autos

box states-
base card parallels
gold - 1:2
red - 1:44

auto parallels
green 1:6
gold 1:10
red 1:49


I guess my /5 was a gold?

Good stuff, 49erfan9, thanks for the report.
If there's a 1/1 red for all 43 signers, it looks like 2107 sets.

But red 1/1 base are 1:44 and 49 base so 44x49= 2,156 sets.

Guy on FB pulled a Mark Hamill x/10. So there's one known big hit out there.
