Already ebay is loaded with auto's and jerseys from Hong Kong, another day or 2 and there will literally be hundreds on there once the other parts of the world get them. I still feel that once the initial excitement wears off these will be exposed for not having much rarity and start flooding the market of people buying a box, taking out their PC and then recovering the cost of the box via the other 8 auto and jersey cards. The CR7 auto hasn't surfaced yet but I would bet that it won't be the full auto, will be his usual one that looks like cR and a quick u/m looking thing after the R so I shouldn't imagine anyone paying anywhere near $1k for that!! I agree with Tones - un-numbered auto's and jerseys means that you will get them cheap if you're patient. Lets face it, in 2 weeks time we'll be reading how people can't recover the cost of their box in reselling what they don't want from their hits!! Anyway, they still look pretty cool and hopefully they may do a series 2 or at least continue into next season.

Considering there has been Henry autos in past topps products it is possible.

With no one having any idea how rare the Ronaldo is die hard fans will pay anything to have it in there collection. Just depends how badly they want to have it.

What are you guys using to search ebay? I just enter premier gold and go to recent listings in the sports card. Some sellers have some words left out

This was spotted by a member on another forum, superb spot by him

"It seems that the checklist that became available a few weeks ago was complete. Three subsets still had to be confirmed, but it now seems that the Future Stars Autographs, International Icons Autographs and Match Winners Autographs are simply part of the Star Players Autographs subset, as card numbers of these 3 subsets all start with "SP-" and were already included int he Star Players Autographs checklist."

Those autos almost all look incredibly poor. They all seem to be complete scribble with no discernible name.

So bad they almost all look fake to me.

Some interesting info coming in.

A card sub set of which 22 were produced are inserted 1:2420. So 22 x 2420 = 53240 packs

53240 /10 = 5324 boxes / 6 = 887 cases approx. produced

So 887 cases would make for 53,220 hits. Divided evenly between autos and relics that comes out to 26,610 autos and 26,610 jersey cards.

Those numbers are crazy when put into context like that, surely there can't be that many of each?

If the 887 cases is correct then that would be the breakdown considering there are 60 auto/relics hits per case and they are divided evenly between autos/relics.

Those were the numbers I was given by the seller so it must be on the wrapper.

There are 34 autograph signers (I know some are rarer then other) so on average that is 782 autographs from each person. Surely there is no way that can be right.

Maybe he meant that particular quad was 1:2420 and not a quad as a whole of the available ones which would mean an average of 443 cases and half the hits

782 on average doesn't seem that far fetched to me. Topps Premier Gold products in the past have had autos with print runs of up to /1000, that was for the 2004 set IIRC. Half the cases may make more sense though.

A liitle slowly but I just noticed several of the big names from the preliminary checklist I posted earlier are nowhere to be seen on the final checklist. Add to that Henry who was already in Topps' MLS 2013, albeit as a redemption.

Kind of sucks since those guys would have added some more value and star npower to the product.
