Id look for them starting next weekend. Around me the earliest would probably be Monday based on how sports cards are released. As far as costume and autograph odds, there has not been anything exact released. Just that it will be significantly harder then in the hobby packs.

I went through the retail numbers a while back. Crypto said they were only making 68,000 packs. That might seem like a lot but is tiny in comparison to the number of retailers in the country.
That is only 2800/24 pack boxes. I think stores would be lucky to get a couple boxes.
We will see.

There are roughly 4,253 walmart stores and 1,764 target stores in the United States for a total of 6,017 stores. So 2,800/24 pack boxes is a half a box a store.

I hate retail. I am just stating that retail is going to be scarce which will drive Hobby prices.

I don't think hobby box prices could be driven up anymore. If anything, they might come down a bit if autographs don't go for as high as some are expecting. I'd say there is a floor of $140 on these.

Looks like all is set in regards to the release next week, as I received convirmation that WD will be shipping "this week". Most likely Friday, for next Tuesday's release.

After this 70+ page thread here, I sincerely hope everyone has fun with their breaks next week. It should be a lot of fun!!

Now, who is ready to start a Season 3 thread?

Cujo,

In your opinion, will the autos have levels of scarcity like BBT?

You know, I've been discussing that with other dealers/sellers. I sincerely hope that Rick's auto is NOT super limited, like Penny or any of the other top 5 in that set. I'm hoping his will be 1 in an average of 1.5-2 cases. There are, what, 13 auto's all together? Will have to double check, but I'm hoping not. IF Rick is that limited, he'll be $400-500 out of the gate, instead of the $200-300 that I think he will be.

We'll know much more this time next week tho. Btw, for you guys getting stuff from distributors, Crypto will ship to them by Friday, then to us. Meaning that one of my distributors are "hoping" it'll be there Friday, then to me, so I actually will not get some of my product till next Tue/Wed. Just a friendly warning for some of you guys. If others get it drop shipped, then they'll be getting product as of Fri/Monday.

Can't wait for next week to come. It's certainly going to be a lot of fun breaking this set. I think we should all definitely post our hits in this thread with whatever we break. Hoping I get a Rick or a Daryl autograph, getting both would be icing on the cake. Some variant wardrobes would be a plus as well. Pulling a redemption for the Shane triple wardrobe card would be awesome but I know it's not going to be easy.

With that being said, what are you all waiting on?

I have a full case + 4 boxes coming. Two which I sold on eBay to help pay for the price on the case. The rest I will be breaking for my own collection.

ive never bought these before but I am a huge fan of the show.

is that a normal or good price for individual boxes?

do I still have the same chances of pulling a sketch by buying single boxes?

It's A GREAT price considering they consistently sell on eBay for over $140.

Buy them! That is the lowest price you will find them and yes, there's a chance of pulling a sketch. These boxes have two wardrobe cards and one autograph card per box.

lol@Creamy. Spend a week and get caught up reading this thread, yes it's a good page.

Btw peeps. I'm getting offered cases today, at a premium. BUT It's lower than the last ebay sale. I have to make a decision on these today, very quickly in fact. I already have a ton of this coming to me all of a sudden, so let me know if any of you guys want any. People who have bought from me before get first option tho.
