Kind of disappointed I haven't seen any tracking yet for this. Was hoping it would ship out today.

Looking forward to the box breaks! I got 3 packs from Blowout, so I expect mine will ship on Monday, I should have them posted Thursday night. Can't wait to add to my Viceroy collection!

I'm looking at a Wednesday delivery, which is typical for USPS to neighboring islands.

Mine shipped from SolarFly today, but I am international. Will likely see them 7-10 days from now

Thursday for me, which means either Friday or Saturday since I'm traveling for work Thursday and FedEx never drops off packages =( At least it'll be something to help me enjoy the weekend because this is going to be a looooong week for me.

I dig the idea for the artist cards. Depending on what you went with, I may pick up a set on eBay (or here) and pursue getting them all signed by the artists at conventions.
There is the Barnum auto, what is the second chase?

Main post updated with final artist counts. We ended up with 61 cases (610 packs) instead of the originally planned 66 cases (660 packs). This was due to artists not retuning any of their cards, or being able to only complete a portion of their allotment.

If someone on this board happens to pull the Barnum redemption card, you can contact us here if you'd like along with the info on the card itself. We won't announce your name or other info unless you ask us to, or you do so yourself. Whoever pulls the redemption has the option of it being framed and mounted by us with Viceroy logos, and then shipped out... or you can receive the signed document unframed to display as you wish. We're cool with either way, as it will be totally up to you as the big winner! We purposely left the document intact, uncut and unaltered to preserve the historical significance.

We'll announce if the Barnum auto has been redeemed no earlier than July 22nd. We're doing this to keep the excitement of opening packs for international collectors and others who aren't able to open theirs right away. This will also keep the value on any resell cases/boxes, as the price might drop if we announce the redemption has been pulled on release day. If after July 22nd the Barnum card has still not been redeemed (hard to imagine, but possible as a couple collectors still have sealed Cryptids and Space packs and cases), we'll announce it as soon as the card is redeemed.

Also, don't blame SolarFly or Blowout for the cards not arriving on the actual release date of Monday the 8th. That was our fault with waiting as long as we could for additional sketches to show up, and not factoring in the 4th of July holiday. We'll do better next time.

Damn only 15 Werner's. Only 5 Kezele's. Looking forward to the price of some of the rare artists on Ebay. If they make it to Ebay.

Really would like a Werner and a printing plate this time around. Going to be expensive

Those are also two of my favorite artists and I thought the exact same thing ... Instead of cracking my cases I may be better off just buying what I want and selling me cases to compensate for it ... damn that PT Barnum chase auto!

Well there are already 2 posted, I'm expecting to see another 5....so my guess is 7. If I win, do I get a free case?

Honestly don't care much for the Barnum but I do think it's cool that it is a whole document. Actually hoping it is in the case break on here so that a better sketch falls to me.

Think the case prices will be high whether someone claims the Barnum early or not.

Hard to tell how many sealed cases end up on Ebay. Not sure how many Solarfly and BO have left and how many were broken up to sell as boxes. If each got 30 they could sell 15-20 as cases and the rest as boxes. Considering already two on Ebay I could see another 3-5.

I understand why you are doing it but if someone gets it before the 22nd how will you keep it from being posted on here or anywhere else before that?

Ryan just means if the person wants to stay anonymous, they will still post the card has been pulled. Obviously they cannot control box/case breaks posted here or anywhere else.
