As much as I would love to host a break of this breaks that are run on Blowout need to have the product purchased from Blowout. Since this is a Topps direct product I can't.

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.
I told everyone here I had talked to them about it and they confirmed it was 1 per set. But you wanted to be hard headed and insist you were right.

Lol what's YOUR deal?

Topps finally changed the wording on it, but prior to it seemed very clear it was the other way. Other people even said the Topps rep likely could be wrong and as I said I wouldn't buy in for that much $$$ without it in writing.

It's on demand - so they make to order. Bit like the Topps Now sets they did for Rogue One.

Didn't Topps Direct have good pricing for the 40th boxes? I thought I saw some international people say it was a big improvement?

So maybe their web portals calculate shipping differently?

I still find the wording of the Quantity discounts confusing and suspicious as to what there original intent was. Why not simply say Quantity discount for multiple sets purchased in the first place, it should be assumed an auto comes with each set, because that is what the Product description says! This monkey business with weird wording, then changing it because people called in questioning it. Not the mention the whole $60 + $215 and $60 + $465, If I was ordering 5 sets I would just add the 1 $60 set to the cart and just change the quantity to 5 and pay 300 instead of 275 for peace of mind that I would get 5 autos. Of course if I was ordering $5000 worth I would probably look into getting the discounts and calling, getting a name of the person I am talking to and get assurance I was getting my 95 autographs.

and don't forget the /10 and /1 parallels. With that number of base sets to work with, you're bound to complete a /10 set

I've seen this exact type quantity discount pricing before with Topps Now. They did it with "Preacher" and they do it with the daily baseball cards, and probably with some of the other lines I've never bought. The $60 is for the 1st set (with auto) and the $465 is for the other 9 sets (with 9 autos). It's just how their cart works.

I'm in for 5. I'd rather have that than two boxes of 40th Ann, as I'm not really a sketch guy. I prefer autographs, and there's no way you're getting 5 autos out of 2 boxes of 40th (unless you pull a 4 or 6 auto booklet, which I'm hoping to get in the 2 boxes of 40th I did order, due to arrive tomorrow).

At this rate of demand Topps will run out of stickers and have to insert Tim Rose and Mike Quinn redemptions.

The only thing worse than pulling those 2 is waiting 12 months for fulfillment.

I am in for 20 sets. I have not touched Star Wars sets since the original High Tek release. Would love another shot at a Ford. (Just like everyone else buying this set)

Maybe this is Topps going through a change of season inventory?
Either way great idea by them.
Good Luck everyone.
Looks like I should be able to buy a base set for $10

I think it would have been more fun if this set was made more limited and was only available today for 24 hours.

I wish! The International portal does not include Canada.

So you can buy a box of cards and have it shipped for $10 USD to China or the UK but they charge $50 for a booster box to Canada
