Nobody is breaking this stuff it appears. Very few autos hitting Ebay that I can see.
I wonder how many autos per case are even getting pulled.

Is retail out in most places.

Retail is definitely out--that is what the Punk and Cena are out of. I have seen the rack packs and blasters at walmart (don't know if the blasters have an autograph potential).

I just opened a blaster of this, 7 packs plus 1 relic for $20

Relic was Kofi Kingston
got some kind of short print of Eve silver border but no serial #

no mention of autos on the box or packs.


I love the look of the base cards but I don't really see much point in the blasters when you can just get a base set for $10 and pick which crappy relic you want for probably $3-5 and end up saving 5 bucks.

blasters have no shot at an auto which is what topps usually does. rack packs or jumbo packs as they are called this year have a shot of an auto at 1:120. there are full jumbo boxes on ebay but are $70 plus shipping and odds are against you for sure. the retail autos will be the ones to get as it seems like only pack searchers will be getting those for the most part. I still havent seen Vader (hobby), IRS, Akeem, or One Man Gang (all 3 retail). My guess is Vader got replaced by Natalya, Layla, and Roberts since none of those were on the initial checklist. I really wanted to get an Akeem and IRS from this but with none showing up they could be just not in it or as elusive as the HHH from 2012. So far I have picked up Doink, Kama, and Godfather. I also have seen no black parallel relics of any kind and no printing plates which were all supposed to be in this.

I don't think that there is a ton of this stuff being opened. I know I hadn't planned on opening any based on the price point and what you got for it. I wouldn't normally buy any retail hot packs on ebay but some of the ones with autographs might be worth it since they're so hard to find.

I pulled a Cameron auto from a rack pack, it seems as though that one is one of the more common ones.

Looks to me like Leaf should have paid for some "Exclusives" to drive OMG, Kamala

Wow Fink auto got $45.
Maybe some more people will start cracking this stuff if prices stay high on autos.
Will be interesting what box prices do.

the fink is a retail auto. i think the hobby autos will stay at fair prices but once retail stuff clears out and walmart and target throw the rest of their stock away the retail ones will be a bit rare.

Pretty sad. Love the retro look of the cards but.....IMO......hobby boxes are over priced for auto cards not being an every box hit. Devil pack searchers must love this set.

Prices still seem to be holding strong, due to few that are showing up on Ebay. I wonder how many cases Topps made of it and speculation on auto print runs.

I have only seen 2-3 Kama autos, 3-4 Shango autos, 2 IRS autos, 2 OMG autos. These autos will dry up and disappear
