    Yeah, this is what he's probably talking about. And those aren't essential businesses, either.

    I have posted the, most likely to be purchase, releases for June. I have been holding off because of the delay the virus caused with production. June has a heavy schedule and I didn't post 5 other releases because they cost $129 for 3 cards and ones of that ilk. I hope the dates hold up, but this goes to show that there is way too much product being produced. And with all those choices you would think you could get a reasonably price box. If anything is going to happen with high prices, it is up to the consumer to drive down costs.

    Tom, I understand that Topps Series 2 will be released on June 26. There should be a thread about Series 2 in the upcoming releases forum. Thanks. Dave
