what do you guys think cases of this will do after release ? up / down ? I'm still undecided if I want to open my case or not seems like there is a pretty high demand for sealed product.

I dont know. I am not well educated in non sports but I would assume the more cases that are busted with no PT Barnum redemption will drive sealed cases higher. That piece should get a good amount if selling. $400 is probably not unrealistic if someone missed out and really wants a case.

Sell it sealed within the first two weeks of the product being out when the eBay action hits the peak.

The one problem is that if someone shows everyone that they got the PT Barnum chase, your value is going to drop.

Do you think that will really have a huge impact? Space didn't have anything like that and you could have done well with a sealed case at the peak, even if you sold at Blowout's price.

Keep in mind that people were paying $325/case before that chase card was announced and it is standard to pay premium to buy sealed packs on the secondary market after the product is sold out. Even when that card is redeemed, I'd still expect to get about $40/box ($400/case) if people are pleased with the sketches they see when the breaks start. If that chase card doesn't show up in the first week or two, the price of sealed packs and cases may go way up though.

From my perspective, there has been a lot more hype than the previous Viceroy releases. Seems like there are more 'prospectors' out there that bought this product just to make a quick buck reselling, at least that is what I gather from some of the chatter here. Wonder if there are really as many 'collectors' out there as people think? Don't get me wrong... Nobody is going to lose on this release. High quality singles will fetch a good price. The regular dealers will have their regular customers and will do well. I just think some people are seeing more green than there really is. Not sure flipping sealed product will be as profitable as people think, especially if that product was already purchased at a premium.

Nothing unfortunate about it, in all honesty if you can avoid them then do, they don't offer anything like the personal services you need. There are a number of methods for embedding items in cards and if your ever looking for creative solutions/ideas on stuff like that drop me an email, we have been doing this for a few years now

I'm most excited about the fact that Flo-Rida is opening

Does this mean we should expect a Viceroy "Flo-Rida" themed set for 2014?

It's been far too long since we have received some Carnival glamour shots.

Hey Everyone! We had a busy week at the Licensing Expo, and I'll share more about that later on once we have some deals in place.

Due to some shipping issues, we're going to have to push the release of Carnival back, but only until July 8th. I know, it sucks and we HATE it when products get pushed back, but sometimes things happen out of your control and it pushes everything back.

What was the issue? I'd be happy to show you!



Just a touch short! A small (hah!) printing error, being corrected. We had hoped the new ones would be done in time, however it looks like we'll need those extra 10 days to make sure they arrive and are good to go.

Sorry again. Release date pushes are the worst, but at least it is days instead of months.

That sucks. At least the box art looks cool. Looking forward to see what deals you will be able to make from the Expo.

You know, a little duct tape would fix that...

That's why you should have ditched the magnet holders for additional content. Stupid majority!!

We already had 700+ magnetics for this release! Maybe next set, depending on the format.

I was going to post it sooner, but I was at the casino/movies.

edit: Also, sorry it took so long for wave 2. We has some issues with artists completing their sketches, so we didn't have an exact count as early as we would have liked.
