I have a bunch coming too. Keep me in mind next week - we can trade dupes to help fill sets, etc.

Starting on Monday-Tuesday Walmart/Target should have 8 pack Blasters for $20 and Blisters 3 Packs & 4 Atomic Refractors for $9.99. So there will be some Retail Parallel Sets to go after.

Superfractors IMO will be minimum for $350. The Iconic Adam Bomb in the range of 2000-2500. Remember it only takes 2 people wanting a card to start a bidding war.

Believe me, the purists will jump all over this when they see it.

Garbage Pail kids came out when I was 12 or 13.

When I heard they were doing it with the Chrome process I knew it was going to be big, especially once people see it.

I ordered a case and some boxes from BO. Does that mean they ship on the 14th and it can take a few days to receive from UPS? I am on the west coast.

Cases tend to get shipped the day before, but being in CA will take at least 3 days to get to you.

Ah, I am not looking! Spoiler alert. I am laying low for a while until I can open my boxes privately. I still don't really know exactly what these will look like and want to keep it special.

Whats the scoop with those. Is it a full parallel set? Or just limited subset, line the bonus cards of the previous releases?

It's a bonus retail exclusive... One in ever blaster box I think.

Also on a second note.. amazing how people are rushing to be the lowest priced set. WHY do people do this. These sets were selling just fine at $59.99. Now suddenly have people at $40 with free shipping. UGH.

I wish it would drop to $20 a set! I just collect base sets and it would be nice to get one at a reasonable price

I don't think it will get that cheap, I can see them getting down to the mid to low 30s maybe, but if it's super hot it may actually go up. That one guy only has 5 left at his price of $40 delivered.

Not surprising that is already happening. It is the plague of non-sports. Set hasn't even officially released yet and people are undercutting each other and devaluing everybody's investment. I think some people are counting on superfractors and golds to pull a lot more than I expect them to pull. It'd be great to be wrong on this, but I just don't see the average 1/1 superfractor pulling $500. Anyway... We'll see soon enough. A shame about the base sets though, but it makes me happy I held back on a case.

I'm not usually a fan of parallel sets, but I have a feeling I would have liked to make this one. Maybe if people start dumping them for $100 I can just pick one up on eBay Maybe I'll like what I see an end up going in on a case next month if I still can... Who knows?

I agree if product dries up as quickly as some people are predicting, those prices might shoot right back up in a couple weeks.

I went ahead and grabbed one set due to my Chrome love. For the 110 card set, seemed like a fair price to me. Maybe they go up or go down, but I bought this set just to look at

Not that I agree with this guy... but GPKUG is a far superior forum to this one when it comes to EVERYTHING and ANYTHING GPK. In fact, I don't recall there being a single GPK thread in the non-sports section for any of the previous releases since I joined this forum.
