Default Decision 2016 Trading Cards - The Presidential Race

Set just posted on their site. Looks to be an insanely massive set. About 90 bucks a hobby box.

Checklist too rich for my blood with the price - but seems to be a pretty awesome set for the political guru!

What are the odds to get an auto?
Are there relic cards or other chase cards?

I'd really like to know myself. I want to buy a box, but I just can't bring myself to spend 90 buck for a hype box. This is in the same category as American Legends boxes going for around 30. I'd pay 50.

Who's going to man up and buy a box for us?

This seems like an odd product to me but I'm not an American, so I don't feel any connection to the election.

I would just wait, because if the hits are few and far between, box prices will probably be cut in half.

Exactly. It looks like an interesting product but not at that price point. I find it odd they haven't released hit odds.

I'm really interested in picking some of these up but like others have said, not at the current price point. Check out one of the insert sets:

"Each Card Contains Authentic Shredded Money Actually From the Federal Reserve"

If spending your hard-earned money isn't enough, you can be rewarded with some shredded cash.

If you piece it together you might get $1 back from your $90 investment!

Sounds like a lot of 'manufactured' junk in it besides the dumb shredded $ and the cut autos...
There are four types of inserts then a set of cut signatures, flag patches, letters, gems, postage/coin cards and shredded currency cards. You can see some new images below and past images in our First Buzz preview found here.

Among the 22 people to be found on cut autographed cards will be Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Carly Florina, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Bernie Sanders.

The 110-card base set will include 24 candidates cards, 26 influencers cards, 14 spouses cards, 11 debates cards, 14 finalists cards, seven moments cards and 13 future stars. There will be 25 additional high-numbers cards for the set with more recent highlights and others of note.

Looks like the new release date is April 8th and the price has gone down a little ($75 range).

The problem with the release of this product is that most candidates will be out of the race, thus demand for them will be lower. This product should have come out 3-6 months ago.

So I won a box of this from a Twitter contest BO ran this weekend. I'll post my results once this releases and I get my box.

Sweet. I bet they load it with some good stuff for marketing reasons.

I have won several boxes from either BO, other sites or even from the card company themself and some are good and others were nothing special.
From my experience and what I have seen from others, it seems to be random and no hand picked boxes.

Gotcha.

I agree, typically the "promo/preview" boxes are extra loaded. A manufacture should know if they have to provide a loaded preview box, the product likely needs help and was poorly designed.

Now Decision 2016 has a Kick Starter campaign if anyone is interested. I've seen others post about still not getting their reward items after several months from the last product that Brian Wallos did this for (BW Dream Girls). Will be interesting to see if this one fairs any better.

Wow, can't believe there is a Kickstarter campaign for this...not a good sign. I think this product is DOA, which is a shame because I love americana type products. It's just too late in the process for this.

It also doesn't bode well that they don't have odds posted for the hobby boxes, even on kickstarter...which has one backer at $50 right now.

I may be missing something.... isn't it bizarre to be launching a Kickstarter when I believe this set is already well into production?

um. more like they've already shipped orders of this product. this is pretty weird...

also they guarantee NO "hit/insert" ratio in this product....

correction, brian wallos just replied to me:
The autos are 1 per case; the gems are 2 per case; the flag patches are 6 per case.

So if a case has 12 boxes that means you're not guaranteed a hit every box or we probably just still don't know. There are other 'hits' like shredded money and coin/stamp cards. I'll need to see breaks of this to make a decision.
i was going to run a case break...

It looks like they added a foul stamp to a few cards to make them exclusive to Kickstarter, which while I guess follows the rules of putting a finished product on KS, it certainly goes against the spirit. Moot point though, there is no way it reaches its goals.

I understand not guaranteeing hits per box but there should still be odds based on the entire run.

Yeah it looks like this Kickstarter "campaign" is not to get the product off the ground, but a way to sell boxes/cases they had made that distributors are just not buying.

The deals are not terrible, especially if you buy multiple cases, because you are getting cut autos and flag patches.

I would not buy it, but if you were thinking of buying some, this might not be a terrible way to go.
