YUP. I'm literally in shock at how well these are selling. I hope everyone does well on it, including you Tim and Wayne in regards to your cases. Is there no Cassandra Clare auto card? If not, they should have gotten her for like a 3 case incentive or something.

There are 90 current listings and only 171 ended. Compare that to True Blood a week after release. True Blood didn't do we'll because everyone opened it and flooded eBay with singles. NO ONE is opening this stuff, the auction results prove that. If only 5-10 cases of True Blood were opened and singles listed that first week they would have sold much better too. The demand is there for singles right now because the supply of them on eBay is VERY low.

I hope everyone does well too. My advise would be get stuff up quick before more people realize the lack of singles and begin opening their cases to flip as well. Once you have 15+ options of buying a Lily Collins autograph at one time (the way you had 15+ options of buying a Pacquin auto from True Blood) the demand and price will fall greatly.

Too much logic, too early in the morning for Blowout.

I'm showing 318 current listings under Mortal Instruments in "Trading Cards". Needless to say, in trading card economics 101: Yes low case count/high quality of cards will generally do better than any over manufactured release.

Does anyone know how rare are the "variant" wardrobe autos? The ones with the skulls in the background? Thanks.

they appear to be very rare- i was getting maybe 1-2 per case.

and the white back autos are tough too - about 1-2 per case.

i read that the white backs have only 25 each.
