Let me know if you want me to order you any and I can ship it to you for actual cost, not drunk cost.

I'm with you on that. Even if they wanted to hedge their bets and leave it open longer to make sure there were enough sales, 77 hours would've done nicely...

Facebook group I'm in is doing a box draft break. I'm super curious as to whether or not the box shown on the product listing is how it will be shipped...

I picked one up, figured what the heck, looks like a nice set, plus even it it's a small shot at a big name auto, I'll take it. I wish it was only for 24 hours or through the weekend, the print run is gonna be high. Then again, the site also says "
AVAILABLE ONE WEEK ONLY OR UNTIL SUPPLIES LAST" which means they probably have a certain number of sticker autos they set aside for this, I just wonder what their limit is?

Good luck in that break...it will be a cold day in hell before I pay for a spot with PP F&F. And it is completely shady that the moderator there deleted the comments about FF vs GS. I'm not saying the breaker is a scammer but they are practically begging for someone to rip them off. We've all seen longtime people on here break bad. Even good people can give into temptation when they have thousands of other people's money.

Pretty sure you read that wrong. They won't be doing a ton of Star Wars On Demand Sets. When they said #1 they meant the first time they are doing it across any license. It is a style they'll use for baseball, basketball etc. I'm sure they'll do it again before the end of the year (maybe for TLJ), but they didn't mean this is the first of many Star Wars sets, just the first of all their On Demand sets.

I might regret it, but I took the plunge. Not as big a plunge as Cujo, but pretty plungey just the same.

When I received my Sugar Free Gum set I thought that it would have been a better value at one auto per set for $50 instead of 2 autos for $100. Buying the May the Fourth set in bulk almost pushes it down to that level and there are less than a quarter of the crap signers Sugar Free had so the odds seem better. Topps improved their product from the last one in the way I thought they should, so I'm putting my money into it.

Unfortunately, I'm also contributing to the fact that the more that gets purchased, the worse the odds might be for a top tier auto.

I think you will all be happy - product is sold out.

I definitely fear that the top autos get watered down. Topps probably has a ton of lowered tier sticker autos to blow through to print a bunch of these on demand before "selling out."

Holy crap, really? Maybe I made the right call just in the nick of time for once.

If it stays sold out... then it could be a hot product.

According to the wording, we still have to wait 5 days, 17 hours, 32 minutes, and 12 seconds before this product ships.

Seems a lot of people trying to be snarky failed to read this little line in the product description.

AVAILABLE ONE WEEK ONLY OR UNTIL SUPPLIES LAST

IIRC the online Force Awakens complete set was sold out for a bit, but then they put it back up. If this set really did sell out though, I think it will be a great flip sealed.

Then don't sell thru topps "on demand" and sell thru topps.com. I think a ton of people missed that.

Or say the print run like widevision.

Not a big loss if i can't get one.

Yup, that group has gotten group-break-happy these last two months. I avoid at all costs.

The r1s2 case was probably one of the best breaks of that product. A Jones /50 and two penix and 1/1 patch card.

But I understand about ff vs gs. Better to pay an extra buck to cover the fees

Weren't you the one who received the 1/1 patch?

I refuse to deal with people who send valuable items in PWEs

So glad you posted this ... I'd been undecided on whether to just buy one, or pick up a few. Decided to grab one just in case ... very glad I did!

Not the best marketing effort from Topps I have to say.

Glad you grabbed one. Yeah, I didn't think there was anyway these would last the weekend, but didn't think it'd be this fast.
