Default Topps MLS Chrome

I am considering preordering a case or two of this. Big MLS fan, but strictly from a flipping standpoint (as I only collect certain players) does this product have the potential to be a homerun? I know it's kind of a general question but 3 Auto's and boxes are at a little over $60 if you buy by the case, seems really cheap. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this product. Thanks for advice and info!

I'm looking forward to the product releasing as well since I'm a big Toronto FC fan.
Unfortunately i don't see a big market for this kinda set, just because it is such a niche league. Only my opinion.

I assume ur an RSL fan?

Can't see you making money on this to be honest. i bought some MLS and got some pretty good names /10 and they sold for like $3-10 and a 1/1 of the best rookie for $100. However this is chrome so maybe it'll do better. I'll try a box to chase some of the big names like Henry if he even has one. i can't seem to find a checklist.

Not expecting it to be a good value pickup. I'd just like to see what Toronto FC players are featured. Topps has done really no promotion for this product, which makes me wonder if it's even going to come out on time next week.

Which rookie was that?

I'm hoping it's not either of the guys I'm PCing.

I don't see it making money. There will be some big hits i.e. Supers/Super Autos, golds on key players, but it's not International so your audience of buyers is very limited.

Not having found a checklist yet has made it a total shot in the dark at least for me. Im hoping for another small set of Mexico chase cards like in the latest 2014 release. Autos and relics of these will completely sell me on this product.
