Something fishy there, 75 bids, 69 of them by the same person bidding in tiny increments. Sure looks like a shill.

I'm the one bidding on the item... I'm not shill bidding though.
I always increase my bids by the minimum.
I don't know the seller and will purchase the auto if I win (shill bidders don't)

Ah. It just looked really odd with all those tiny bids.
I'm curious myself to see what it ends at, I'm hoping for 1 in my case since it will be a PC card, but failing that I'll be on the hunt for 1.

It's pretty clear that will almost certainly be the best auto outside of the auto/wardrobe cards.

bidder is bidding til they are the top bidder ... i do that sometimes - also since like only 100 listings can be added to the "watch list" .. a bid here allows that item to be watched

too early - as that is the only one up to make comparisons
there will be sellers who will post low BINs to make fast sales .. like always

Exaclty... I try to keep up with my watch list but it's easier to do that.


If I don't win it, I hope I pull a few from my case.

Default I saw it and wondered...

Is it pretty much certain to be an SP? Just not used to Cryptozoic and I'm guessing no real list of SPs is out yet.
Thanks,
VinnyH

Do we know which of the autos (beside main 7) are short print?
Like the last set where there were the 2 rare ones and then the rest common, as it's not marked on the checklist online.
Looking from the prices on Ebay DANICA McKELLAR seems to be one.
Also do we know the same for the wardrobe's, if any are short printed.

Danica was Winnie Cooper to most of the demographic watching BBT, so there's much more interest in her first certified auto than most. Even if it is a 'common'.

We won't know of any short prints until we start seeing some case breaks or until Cryptozoic posts that information. I wouldn't base any guesses on SP's on initial selling prices either, the first handful of cards will sell for higher, especially people from previous popular shows, and the prices probably won't be based on them being short printed.

Now, I will say, for Vampire Diaries Season 2, the short print autos seem to be numbered right after the main 3, A4-A10, based on case breaks. And in BBT S1&2, one of the short prints was numbered right after the main 5. Based on that, I would think that for BBT S3&4, A8-A10 will be short printed. However, in a way that seems kinda strange, since you would really expect Danica McKeller, Will Wheaton, Rick Fox, and Levar Burton to be short printed, but they are numbered A16-A19.

Nice... At 1 per case the auto costumes are going to be crazy expensive.
I would assume a low of $400 min for Raj and Howard's.

Hard to guess but around $400 sounds like a pretty good guess.
Good on anyone that pulls one of the main cast in single boxes (rather than buying a case). That's why I brought 3 boxes from one person and 2 from another in addition to my case, just to try my luck.

They don't have odds for the auto/wardrobes in retail, but they must be hellishly long compared to regular autos. Since the auto odds for all autos combined is 1:1,395 the auto/wardrobes are probably at least 1:20,000

Stuffs out at Wal-Mart saw it this morning 1 in 400 odds for memorabilia autos like 1 in 1300.

For retail packs..1:1365 for Autographs. 1:480 for Wardrobe

But for Wardrobe cards with auto's on them, there's no mention of odds

They had a 3rd of a gravity feed at my wal-mart for $3 each. I'll probably pick up a pack or two since i love the show.

according to the vendor I spoke to, they are not stocking them fully. He told me at the stores he had already done, he was putting half the packs out, while the other half stayed in back. Checked feed he put out and 24 packs were there so 24 were still sitting in warehouse, unable to come home with me

Still some boxes on eBay for $90 BIN though.

Nice... How many cases is everyone opening? Breaking to keep all, make a master set, resell? Etc

I'm possibly breaking all 5 cases and getting 4 additional boxes

1 case (maybe 1 or 2 more boxes if the LCS gets any). Will be keeping some for the PC, selling the rest.
