8 days away and still no checklist?

Just popped on to post the same thing - as of right now, still no checklist.

I am probably not ordering until I see what the checklist is - and hopefully the prices will settle back in a more normal realm. May even hold off indefinitely and see where the prices finally end up. This will be the first time since 2009 that I haven't pre-ordered at least a box of series I/series II/update.

Did you see my comments about some company did not pass on the silver packs,.....so they up the price on the boxes.

I missed that...

I know Blowout was including the cards with their boxes - and they are up almost 40% on their costs. but I could totally see LCS's bumping it up to make up for not being able to sell the silver packs separately.

But what if u pull a Pete Alonso Auto! Best regards, David

I don't know if that would even pay for a jumbo box??? I keep going back and forth about pre-ordering. Still no checklist, so no decision can be made as to truly wait or not. I can't imagine them going higher than $144/jumbo box, but who knows at this point.

My hobby store buys direct from topps (Their a Topps Hobby Store) and their cost is $135.00 per Jumbo Box...so they will have them for sale at $155.00 or $160.00...

Just saw a bunch of Alonso auto on ebay....most in the $150.00 for just the base Auto,.......so you will get quiet a bit back! I'll take that any day!

If you hit the Alonso, of course! But what are the odds you hit the Alonso. Checklist is out - not really all that good. Solid, but not great. Definitely not worth $150/box for jumbo. Will wait to see how it plays out and hope that prices come back to reality.

In the meantime, will bust a couple of the Wal Mart blasters and start working on the Bryce Harper insert set.
