That's why they will probably say "HOT PACK GUARANTEED COSTUME OR AUTO COSTUME". Covers the bases.

And we will see them (as one is already on bay) because Hot Pack sellers sell everything. Yeah they could be selling a mega hit or an eh hit.

The "good ones?" take the chance what they may be selling off for $20 could actually be 10x or more what they could have made if opened.

I've seen big hits come out of those "HOT PACKS" in sports that seller sold for $10. So I don't see why the same wouldn't be said for non-sports.

Gotcha... Didn't think that people would take that risk.
Any auto costume is a guaranteed $400++ hit.

They may seem like an odd question but what do you guys all search on Ebay for these cards?
I normally search "big bang theory cards", but it doesn't come up with any of the results of the wardrobes cards from the new set that people have posted on here. What's better to search so I get better results?

Just type in 'big bang theory' and select newly listed (for bin and auction)

It yields the most results but contains a lot of DVD's and merchandise too.

For the first set I used

'big bang theory auto'
'big bang theory costume'

Thanks. I'll try using those from now on.

Imagine though buying a hot pack for $30 and pulling a Sheldon or Penny auto/ wardrobe!

When you search you can put terms with a minus sign to exclude terms. For instance...
Big Bang theory -DVD -bluray -pin -reprint etc...

And so on, it helps narrow things down.

Best to All,

This one looks like it might be a variant costume card.

I am looking at getting the Big Bang Theory Binder for Seasons 3 & 4 but noticed there are two different versions on eBay. Could someone please explain them both to me. One is probably for Seasons 1 & 2 but do not want to pick up the wrong one.

At the end of the day, they are just like any other business, capitalize when you can and make that money.

crypto making it difficult ..
the one that looks like season 1/2 has an auto - read any description carefully -- i think it is called platinum / just out

not to be confused w the earlier season 1/2 binder w relic m18 sheldon robe i think or pj

the one for season 3/4 has a relic - havent picked this up yet .. not sure if out yet either

i picked up the season 1/2 binder w m18 awhile ago .. and last month picked up the auto only from a seller who separated the new season 1/2 platinum binder .. i didnt need 2 of the same looking binders - just the auto

look up on ebay - should see what i tried to explain

the newly released binder (i think jan 31 release) is actually for seasons 1&2 (platinum edition) with another auto for that set (i'm guessing #A12?), which is leonard's mom. the binder supposedly has a platinum looking shine to it, to distinguish from the normal looking binder released when the set came out, although the only reason i ordered it was for the auto.

the binder for seasons 3&4 is supposed to have a wardrobe (something from howard if i remember correctly)

The walking dead was fun but I actually think the big bang theory is going to blow it away.

It it wasn't for the sketch cards in The Walking Dead, this product would definitely blow it out of the water...as it stands, it's probably as good although I don't know that it will be as good in terms of ROI. While the other autos outside of the first 7 are mostly decent there are some definite very low end ones. I don't believe any of The Walking Dead autos sell for less than $25. Of course no walker costume cards to deal with.

Another Penny relic has hit eBay. I wonder how much longer it will be until we see an autograph hit, or even an autograph relic hit. How sick would it be to buy a hot pack and get a Penny or Sheldon autograph relic?

I agree the sketches were nice there are some bums for autos in the big bang theory but the wardrobe cards in big bang theory I think are going to sell well. Its a toss up walking dead was nice I am not saying it was a bad product I just think this product may be more appealing to everyone kids and adults.

I'm going to check some local Targets soon and see if they have any Big Bang packs in stock. Maybe feel around to see if there's a wardrobe
