So what you're saying is sell these on ebay now before people realize you can cherry-pick what they get? lol

I assumed they'd come in a box like shown on the sale page with the Topps On Demand logo, not a clear case with auto visible and no seal.

No I am not saying that. I guess that is something you would say and do.

I like how you try to give people a warning, and it gets turned around into something sinister...

I was being sarcastic and have 0 of this coming in since few people noticed up front it was while supplies last.

The secondary market on these may as well just be autos alone and base sets, no one would touch a "sealed" box of it unless they didn't know how it's packed.

Sounds like you have a clear path ahead of you. After release, buy a complete set and the autos you like.

Print run from main "On Demand" page of Topps.com: 1254 boxes

I can't post pics easily from work, try this link: https://www.topps.com/2017-topps-on-...y-the-4th.html

Wow, a lot lower than I thought it'd be, I assumed it'd be ~2,000.

If Ford signed a full 11 cards, parallels only, that's almost a 1:10 odds to hit him! Then again I feel like they will have 1 or 2 Fords only, we'll never know til we see one numbered /10.

I wonder if that on demand box they are now showing is how they are going to ship.

If Ford signed 11, then you would have a 1 in 114 box chance of hitting him.
That would be the best odds ever I believe.

so 1254 boxes

looking at silver /10- 1 per 6.27 sets
looking at gold 1/1- 1 per 62.7 sets

This set should hold decent value I think

lol yeah, typo.

That's best case scenario. Worst case is he signed 1 or 2 only.

If you equate this to a 12 box case, then it's like 1:9.5 cases.

Now someone tell me the odds he signed fully on the sticker for once in the last few years

Just re-reading the checklist to see which base cards do not have signers ... looks like Chewie, Vader, Tarkin, Obi Wan (with two Jabba signers to make up the difference).

And it looks like the checklist was a bit of a rush job ... Bobba Fett, Mark Hamil, Rusty Geoff (love that one!), Caroline Blakistan. LOL!

There are 17 signers and 1,254 boxes
Say the top 7 signers only have parallels, that would be 77 total cards, which would still be 1 in 16 boxes to get one of those signers.

Now a few of those people will have base, so the odds will probably be closer to 1 in 10 boxes to get a top 7 signer, which would be better than 1 per case in comparison to other products.

Say the top 7 signers signed 144 total cards, then take out the 110 parallel autos for the other 10 signers, the print run for the 10 "common base" autos would be 100 each.

If you ordered with a Topps account, login and check your orders. They usually update with a tracking number. I just got charged yesterday, mine is still processing

Print run confirmed at 1254. Fool me once.

Seriously, I would say the better signers might be 50 copies max, so maybe 1:15-20 sets.

This set could very well be the surprise hit out of all their Star Wars products!
