Have you noticed that the presell price on this is starting to rise? And were you able to get in on series one before it skyrocketed?

I should have a couple boxes should I want them, not sure of the price yet, but it "should" be tolerable.

dont think it will go up much after release, the content is less that the first one, 2 autos and 2 memoriballia, and usually the second series of any product dosent go up because of all other people who save them for years.

i disagree with you guys. the price on this will defenetly rise once released.

the base design once again is very bland. but the auto list is better then the first edition. also there not using the same photo for the autos. brock lesnar autographs ? nuff said !!!!!!!

not only him but there are others of course. theres like 3 different autograph designs. the inserts like the poster one will be nice to collect. overall a improvement from the first edition.

Well last week he told me that he can not get me my case due to supply and he gives me back my money. well today the same guys has a listing up for 2600 for a case more then doubal what I paid. I sent him an email and he gives me a bunch of bull. I have reported him to the bay but is there anything else I can do. I am trying to get the word out but I dont know what to do.

well it looks like he is going to follow through with the order. I am glad I keep all my emails. So it looks like I should be getting at least one case of round 2.

I'll wait until they come out and just buy a base set and the individual autos of fighters I like. Boxes and cases are ridiculous prices.

just thought i would share this info with everyone getting round 2..

UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar defended his title against Frank Mir in the main event of the ballyhooed UFC 100 pay per view Saturday, doing so with revenge on his mind and zero certified autographs on his checklist.

The former World Wrestling Entertainment phenomenon, who also tried his hand at the National Football League before entering mixed martial arts, avenged the only loss of his five-fight MMA career in brutal fashion with a second-round TKO.

Lesnar, arguably the most decorated crossover athlete in trading card history, has appeared on 54 licensed trading cards across three major organizations – the WWE, the NFL and now the UFC. Yet his first certified autograph, a card that most certainly would rank as a product-making coup driving sales and upward price guide values, remains the bane of many a product developer’s existence.


“His first certified autograph would be a $250 card, easy,” said one industry executive with intimate knowledge of the autograph acquisition process. “And right now, considering the incredible hype surrounding him and his fight at UFC 100, that number probably is extremely conservative.”

According to a source close to the development of Topps’ wildly successful UFC Round 1 and its anticipated follow up set to release in August, the reason Lesnar’s signatures are so elusive can be summed up in two words: Vince McMahon.

As the story goes, Lesnar allegedly was forced to sign so many autographs as part of his contract with the WWE that he grew tired of the practice and now essentially refuses to do so, at least in quantity. Another rumored explanation is that Lesnar’s per-autograph cost is simply too cost-prohibitive for manufacturers.

Whether or not those explanations are valid doesn’t change the fact that one of the most accomplished professional athletes of the 21st century has no autographed trading cards. Highlighting what he does have are 11 memorabilia cards – ranging in value from $8-$50 – from a handful of WWE Fleer products, four 2004 NFL Rookie Cards (Sweet Spot #203 at $25 and Playoff Honors #173 at $20 are his best) and a $60 2004 Leaf Rookies & Stars Longevity Holofoil parallel limited to just 25 copies.

Lesnar’s best UFC card to date, a Silver parallel of his base issue limited to 288 copies and chronicling his February 2008 debut against Mir, is currently valued at $7.50.

He was at the T-Wolves game when the Celtics were in town. I should have asked for his auto then if I would have known how hard it was to get it. Sweet card ^^^ by the way.
