Default NPN Link

Maybe Pat or Chris could post a "Pinned" link for the NPN addresses so that when a new product break is listed we don't have to have the Standard "Could you post the NPN info".

Otmacko, while the site you linked IS very informative, it takes him a few days and sometimes a few weeks to get new NPN info. Is it that bothersome to see someone asking for that info?

I dont recall saying that anything was bothersome. I apologize if you took my post that way. Out of curiosity, have you had better luck sending in NPN requests earlier rather than waiting for the info to be posted on the npn site?

Not sure of success ratios on early vs. late? But I travel a lot so it's easier to get my stuff in the mail earlier than later. Last few NPNs I've gotten were 3 BSKB jerseys (nothing special) and one Corey Feldman auto from UD.

Well I update the site once a week. Usually late Friday night, sometimes on another weekend day. I suppose I could update it more often, however I usually don't have that many to post. Not sure it would be worth it.

I also only collect Baseball, so those NPNs are up on the site fairly quickly as I usually purchase something of everything baseball. The other srpots however I depend on the readers to send in the addresses.

It doesn't matter whether you do NPNs right away or right before the expiration date. There is no reason not to wait for rockholt's site to update. My girlfriend goes there once a month and does everything then. You generally have MONTHS to get an NPN request out, so really, there's no incentive for being first. Rockholt, thanks for the site, and please don't feel rushed into updating it more than once a week. Unless there are products whose NPNs expire within four weeks after release, I don't see why updating in real time accomplishes anything.

Rockholt... please don't take my comment as a knock on your site. I appreciate it and utilize it often.

Jughead... while I appreciate your input you do NOT know everyone's situations so I'm a bit perplexed by your statement? I thought this was a forum where we all shared ANY information about whatever cards, whatever sports, whatever memorabilia etc...??? I could certainly PM box busters and just hoard any info for myself but I'm sharing, or trying to share just like everyone else.

Rudy, if I were only addressing your post, I would have PMd you. I was responding to the entire thread.

Nope, sort of a dry spell lately.

I got another Topps Home Run Derby card (Nick Swisher) and a Curt Schilling GU jersey card from UD Series 2 this month.
