The little douche juice has his own comic too. Can't really blame him, he's the current flavor of the month and his parents/agents are gonna ride it as long as it lasts. Just remember, aside from all this fame, child stars typically end up well adjusted and lead perfectly normal lives.

Yeah, and I know from a marketing stance it's a no brainer, it'll probably be the highest selling non sports release of the year. I normally pay no attention to the tween fads but something about this kid irritates the hell out of me.

No, that's called being a smart opportunist and "evil profiteer" using that nasty Capitalism. Good luck with it. People will always buy crap.

Never underestimate the power of a fad. I still remember when Inkworks did the first Twilight set before the company folded, just base cards, a few foil inserts and 1 costume card per box and box prices went insane, they went from $50 to $300 almost overnight, the costume cards ranged from around $50 for commons up to around $400 for the Robert Pattinson. I have to wonder what autos would have gone for.

I admit I'm curious to see what his auto will go for, but I'd love to see what they go for 2 or 3 years later the the fad is over.

If Leif Garrett would have his own Topps Set in the mid-1970's it probably would have been popular.

Justin Bieber is the manufactured Teen Star of the moment.

I'm not afraid to admit that I collected New Kids On The Block cards back in the day.

NKOTB was a bit different in terms of almost everything & got almost every age range & still is somewhat highly collectible.....Bieber will never come close, EVER!..will fade out in 2-3yrs if that, just like my last pair of jeans! - But will agree w/ what ScreamingDC & IndySportsCards said, including GARPIKE as well...definitely not my thing but would be a tad curious as to what the autos will end up going for? LOL

This will be the Biggest ticket for the "kiddies" to use Mom & Dads bank account, & Bigger ticket for those looking to exploit, then again that's what Bieber's mom is doing anyway...........why else did she take it upon herself to post his videos all over youtube?

Nothing to be ashamed of. I was a kid back then, it doesn't reflect who I am today in any way.

If it's any consolation, my wife loved NKOTB back in the day.......

Oh wait, she's a female!

I don't get the hate for Bieber. I know he sounds like a little girl and he is manufactured, but so is most of the heavy metal that most people on here have said they "love." Every generation has a "pop sensation" for the young girls to swoon over. It was the Beatles (even though they were good), the Monkees, the Leif Garretts, the David Cassidys, the KNOTBs, the Posions, the Backstreet Boys, the NSyncs, and now the Biebers. Just as we guys get to look at Beyonce or Katy Perry and not listen to a word of what they are singing, the girls want something too. Are we just jealous that a 15 year old could get more poon than we could combined???? I give the pre-pubescent some props.

well... he can't sing. Singing isn't "baby baby ooh ooh". He can't dance. He has the audacity to have boutique water with his name on it... I don't have a problem with him myself but I understand it when others do.
