Who the heck is Paul MolitAr? Nice quality control job SK.

Also, how is Paula Creamer a Sport King?

I see there's a Stanley Matthews base card, good stuff.

Wonder if he will also have a cut auto?

That's SIR Stanley Matthews, a truly great pick to be included in Sportkings.

I'm excited about Charles Atlas as well.

I am loving the premium back redemption. Question will each person have a version of each letter available? More specific Cal Ripken can he have a "S" back and a "P" back.... I need to start saving for that master case.

I just put down my deposit for a 3x16 Master Case! Some good names, some not so good names, but I'm liking the great case hits and the redemption program should make for some interesting breaks and chases!

REALLY having to fight the temptation to get a Master case of this stuff. Like has been said earlier, each little bit of info sounds better and better.

If you are thinking about Sportkings why not try a Case Break Slot:

Sport Kings Series E Hit 16 Box (or 48) Case Break Part Deux

Dr. Price is including an additional 1/1 Art Card if the Case Break Fills. A chance at two 1/1's with one slot!!!

Check it out, buy a slot, buy a few slots....

Dr. Price, I'm doing a local Master Case Group break, can I get an extra 1/1 MC break card too?

Seriously, why reward the "group breaks" with a bonus beyond the hard core case breakers?

The online video case breaks are great advertising for a product. The hard core guys are great for business but it's a more subtle form of promotion without live video of their breaks and multiple participants.

IMHO,

I think the saying, "give an inch, they'll take a mile", rings true in this thread.

I'd like more 1/1s too.

Couldn't agree more.

Truth be told, those of you that are buying sealed cases are getting a GREAT deal compared to the quality of content. Never before has something like this been sold at this cheap of a price point. Never.

In my opinion, we are already being given more than any other company gives us. Promotions such as this, (where special cards are given away to "public" group breaks), are bonuses used to hopefully increase interest. It's a wonderful concept that you don't see other manufacturers doing often or ever.

(This opinion comes from the most loyal of all buyers of this product).

There is promotion needed to add to the collectors base for any product, which in turn adds to the value for the "loyal" buyers.

The Premium Back Base Cards Exchange Program awards loyal buyers. If you buy a Master Case you will be very close to spelling "Sportkings" 5 times and being able to receive an additional 1/1 Art Card.

In a Case Break the Premium Back Cards will most likely be distributed 4 at a time to 12 different people. These Premium Back Cards will not be used to trade in for 1/1 Art cards (unless purchased and accumulated on the secondary market).

Of course, there is the choice for those that are holding many Premium Back Base Cards of selling the Premium Back Cards, keeping them or redeeming them....Choose any option, it adds value for the "loyal" buyers.

I won't mention how many boxes/cases I have pre-ordered, it is irrelevant. I think the Group Case Break is an excellent way for collectors who are undecided about Sportkings to give it a try. For less than the price of a box, a "loyal" collector could be born. Thus, value added to everyone that is already a "loyal" buyer.

I also think "loyal" buyers should buy into the case break, and many have. The more Case Breaks that fill up, the more publicity the product receives. Many "loyal" buyers have bought into the case breaks without complaining that their personal purchases aren't being awarded with extra bonus cards, and without expecting to be given a bonus card in the case break.

Card companies give away items all the time. Search give aways at The National, The Industry Summit, etc. The receivers of these give aways may be loyal, some may not be. Exactly the same as a group case break. The point is to increase Brand Awareness, increase the number of collectors, increase the excitement for the product, etc.

Dr.Price does a better job at this than any other card company, and I applaud his efforts.

48 box case = 48 Logo cards, "sportkings" looks to be 10 letters, 48/10 = 4.8 redemptions

Am I missing something?
