Just saw that Pink the final chapter or whatever the hell its called doesn't come out until the end of May, meaning Dreamgirls is later than that now??

I have a big Benchwarmer customer at the store here. His new standing order is at least a case UNLESS it has the word Archive in the name. Then nothing, absolutely nothing.

They've almost ruined a good thing. Dreamgirls might redeem them some though. New photos of the models will be most appreciated.

Yeah, I am holding out for Dreamgirls. Hopefully it is as good a product as Gold 2013 was.

For the time being I am amusing myself by buying autographed photos of my PC gal...

So many good ideas that Wallos could use but doesn't.

I would vastly prefer a multi swatch card over a fake "jewel" glued onto a card. Instax photos as box/case hits for TRUE 1/1 cards(and new photos ).

Just send the models a camera and some film and have them snap candids over a week or two then send them back... or have a fashion show at his penthouse

Redemptions for personalized cards... though with how he rants about how evil stickers and redemptions are this will never happen.

if he absolutely MUST do an archive set then why not Best of Benchwarmers?

Do model evolution sets with a models best photos over the years/most popular card designs. In this day and age it is not like it costs much to hold polls on here or on his website.

A Benchwarmers Fans Choice Award set would be neat...

Sometime early last year I swore off buying BW until either A) Dreamgirls released or B) some other new, original or worthwhile product released.

So far, neither has come to pass.

...and save for a single Angel Boris card, I've held to that promise.

I agree with a lot of the comments here... what's the point in trying to complete anything - a rainbow, a models' run of cards from a particular product or even a complete set of autographs from any single release - when some other "lost" or "archive" addition or variant will inevitably pop up later?

2013 Gold was the last truly great product they released and - save for possibly Treasure Chest - after that it's been too many releases each year and too many "archive" or "update" editions on top of that.

Dreamgirls may be amazing if/when it sees the light of day, but it won't save BW. I don't know how much longer it can sustain itself, but I don't give it more than 1 1/2 or 2 years with it's current business model.

Also... I'm going to have to somehow find a way to look past Sandra Taylor's early-career Trump transgression and still love her...*shudders*

Blowout has two cases of the DD Series 2 (non update) in stock. Any interest in doing a break? I need to find the General Lee card for my PC, but I can't afford to buy a whole case myself just for the chance to find out

Speaking of our lovely Sandra Korn...I mean Taylor, I got to meet her when she did a signing here in LA. I told her that her signature was the best among all benchwarmers and she told me she spent hours at Wallos' penthouse signing the BW cards. Also she complained that most girls use one coat of lipstick to kiss 4-5 cards but she said that she used a fresh coat of lipstick for each kiss card. Neat-o information huh. Lol
Anyway she's really nice and I got this signed from her that day. Hope you enjoy it!

So if they fall in line with their product release dates people might have their books shipped out sometime in 2017

Yeah, not at all interested in dollar store "gem" cards. At least make it a real semi precious stone....

They really need to go away. It would seem that utilizing the buttons from the shirts would have made sense in this release. Use a swatch with that on it as a 1/1.

well we see how popular the zipper cards are, sure more like that with large clothing pieces will be very sought after compared to gems

I get the feeling one large part of the zippers popularity is where exactly they are on the model....

I'm tired of the "gem" cards as well. The "gem" has nothing to do with the model. At least a swatch, or zipper, or as nabzy suggested, a button is a part of something the model wore in the photo. Even the soccer, basketball and hockey stick pieces have a connection to the photo shoot depicted on the card.

Give me a nice on-card autograph and I'll be happy. Still my favorite kind of card. Once BW started doing the premium-thickness base cards in 2013 Gold those became my second favorite type of card.

Based on the totals pledged, I had gotten a total of 127 total boxes produced. I haven't gone back to see if any pledges changed, but it shouldn't be too much of a variance. I was hoping they'd be numbered to prevent shenanigans.
