correct. if you buy one at a time for $60, you get an auto per set. But if you do the bulk, you still only get one total autograph for the whole order.

just guessing but maybe that $60 is for one set with auto on top of the 10 non-auto sets?

Update: I am thinking that is correct b/c they use the plus sign - $465 + $60

I guess the "Auto box" is a seperate pack that the autograph comes in?

Almost half of the autos are desirable at least.

I wonder how many of these will be inserted:
1. Han Solo - Harrison Ford
2. Luke Skywalker - Mark Hamil
3. The Emperor - Ian McDiarmid
4. Princess Leia - Carrie Fisher
5. Lando - Billy Dee Williams
10. R2D2 - Kenny Baker
11. C3PO - Anthony Daniels
12. Bobba Fett - Jeremy Bulloch


Vs the total number of these:
6. Ackbar - Tim Rose
7. Nien Nunb - Mike Quinn
8. Jabba - Toby Philpott
9. Greedo - Paul Blake
13. Piett - Kenneth Colley
14. Jawa - Rusty Geoff
15. MOthma - Caroline Blakistan
16. Admiral Ackbar (voice) - Erik Bauersfeld
17. Jabba Puppeteer - David Barclay
Yes, although I know the overall #s will be skewed, I can't help but buy a lottery ticket. In for one.

That is a crazy way of selling these sets. I wonder how many people (like me... almost) are going to place an order for 10 just to find that they only get one autograph?

That's incorrect. I just called and was told you get an auto per set.

This is very confusing wordage by Topps here. I am SURE there is ppl thinking they are getting 10 auto's with there bulk order. Def need clarification from Topps before I pop on any of this.

I read the price as $60+465. So that would equal 525. What that includes (re:auto) is confusing though.

Yes, the girl I just spoke with at topps said you get an auto per set ordered. SO if you ordered in bulk( 5 or 10) you get an auto for each set.

That is not how it reads on the dropdown - I put it at 50/50 that the girl on the phone doesn't really know.

I think you are being optimistic. I give the CSR a 10% chance of knowing what they are talking about. I'm not touching this set until Topps puts in writing somewhere that you get one Auto per set. even then I may not touch it if they don't update the drop-down box verbiage

The options have been updated to read 1 auto per set (instead of 1 auto box). Just confusing wording before (and even a little still after)... but it didn't really make sense that you were paying $46.50 for just a set without an autograph.

No, because it very clearly shows the breakdowns as like "(5) 20 card sets + (1) auto box".

So yes, any of the three options: 1, 5, or 10, would be a "set", and you get ONE auto box.

Unless Topps puts in in plain writing I would stay far away from ordering 5 or 10 sets and expecting multiple autos.

the auto box is what you need to look at. When have they EVER given a box discount for quantity on any widevision or online sets? You get the discount for multiple sets and then the $60 adder is for the auto box. That's why pricing is like $465 + $60.

that's what I thought but since they changed the wording it now reads that you do get the discount. The basically just copied and pasted the first line and put it next to (5) or (10) - so you do get one auto per set.

If they are 1 auto per set and there is a 10 set break in price, I messaged ifish73 to see if Ian will run a box draft and do it in sets of 10 only.

That way people should save a few bucks and have a shot at a big name since the pool of participants.

I would definitely be in for a group break of these.

100% you get an auto with each set.

(10) 20 Card Set + Auto Box

That means you get 10 of the 20 card sets + auto box which are a singular item. The 20 card set comes with the auto box, so if you get 10, you get 10 of both

Yeah they changed wording since my screenshot I posted on page 1 of this thread. Before it clearly showed as only 1 auto box, just a typo I guess.


Anyone know if we can even have a group break for this on here since it's not sold thru Blowout?

Yep - crystal clear on the Topps site now.

(1) 20 card + 1 auto per set
(5) 20 card + 1 auto per set
(10) 20 card + 1 auto per set

Thank goodness they changed it. Someone there confused 5/4 with 4/20 when they wrote the first descriptions.
