I discovered this product tonight!

I'll call this a copycat of the SignaCuts, but not quite as ugly. Boring, yes, but not ugly. I guess a 3x5 just isn't cool enough anymore. I know the thrill of the chase is driving this, but it makes me sad. I also just discovered there is a Garvey, #'d to 20. I'm sick, so I will try to get one, but only because I need to "try for it all". I hate this product! Sorry to those who might be bothered that I don't like this or other cut products and am not shy to admit it out loud, but call me a purist!

Now this is an exception, because that is truly a Historic and much sought after signature. A perfect candidate for a cut. Do this and leave out the Larry Hisle and Chris Speier types!

A few others worthy of this issue:

Nellie Fox, George Sisler, Gabby Hartnett and Paul Waner. Pretty much the rest listed now are a joke including a Tom Pagnozzi #'d/2! Talk about creating artificial value!!!

Haha. Everyone in the set has a fan base, however I don't know how much these packs cost, but I am pretty confident those buying the packs are NOT HAPPY to pull Larry Hisle, Gary Bell or Manny Mota! (Unless packs are $3 each)

If that is true, there are 9000 cards total (3000 boxes @ 3 cards/box)

30 group A cards (1 card per 100 boxes)
120 Group B cards ( 1 card per 25 boxes)
8850 Modern Stars cards

No license to make?
All Star and HOF players, many of which are extremely common and a few big hits.

Boxes selling for $160, so maybe $100-130 cost from manufacturer (guessing here, don't know the typical mark-up on new products).

$300-400K for the manufacturer if they sell out @ $33-44/auto on average.

NICE WAY TO SELL OFF A COLLECTION OF AUTOS. Even @ $1000 each for the A group autos and $500 each for the B group autos, which is probably high, that leaves over $200K for the rest or almost $25 each for the Hisles, Pagnozzis et al!

If you are a gambler looking for a big hit, it may not be that bad. It does have.
1 per 100 boxes Ruth, Grhrig, Cobb, Foxx, Hornsby, Bresnahan, Jackie Robinson, Walter Johnson, Lazzeri, Ott, Honus Wagner.
1 per 25 boxes Mantle, Paul Waner, Joe Gordon, Paige, Dean, Vance and others.
Not my kind of product for my collecting needs but some hardcore Braves collector will want to get a Denver LeMaster certified auto for his collection.
