    I feel like a Vlad Jr is a pretty significant hit.

    For sure. I collect mostly Topps dynasty and several guys just have shit autographs. Like Trout and Vladdy. On the other hand some are beautiful, I’m a fan of Chipper Jones auto myself.

    Their lack of tools for sellers to report and respond to these folks is ridiculous. Literally can't even leave a bad review

    of course their entire model is also ridiculous that you can just bid on stuff with no method of paying for it required. If they really cared, they'd follow the Stockx model or something else where you have to have payment ready and it's instant after winning a bid.

    Got my 3 prizm blasters of football, may be last 3 I buy. $90+ at face for 3 blasters, no numbered cards, no QB rookies other than a Lance insert. Box is priced at over a $1 per card in the box. Value just isn't there unless you get lucky. Basketball ones have not shipped yet may just flip those (although I still need a Cade prizm so may open)

    Lol yea that's probably a good idea. I bought 6 prizm blasters of basketball for $180 something from target. Was thinking of reselling some anyway. Looks like I can flip all 6 for around $270. Could get close to a Cade auto or shorter print Prizm with that which would surely be more valuable than anything I pulled

    I was at meijer Thursday as the stocker was there. I bought nothing. Had tons of prizm football and basketball. Just couldn’t do it. The price point is ridiculous imo and I don’t really collect football or basketball, just buy singles.

    With basically no SP or autos in blasters, it looks like realistic best case is you pull the disco orange blaster exclusive Mac Jones which you can buy as low as $56. And there are only 2 of those RC in every blaster with a rookie checklist over 100 players.

    Find it weird they can grade a card a 10 when after it was made he signed it. I guess if I have a card with a flaw I should just get it signed and make sure the signature covers the imperfection.

    That's nice looking card though. Looks better than the auto stickers they do

    Didn’t he have a few singings last year and charged like $50-$100 each? I remember some guy on Facebook was selling some and he said he had like 200 cards signed alone.

    Exactly, if you want the big hits you are going to have to break with their guys. So they will jack up their prices even more for their breaks this leading to even higher prices for everyone.

    I’ll admit I got back in 3 years ago because of this thread and about 6-8 months later the boom took off like crazy. Now I’m debating on getting out again besides just a select few players I collect. Prices for retail are just stupid. I always liked to keep all parallels or inserts and just put them in a binder along with rookies that I got out of retail or breaks but it’s too expensive now.

    When this bubble bursts it’s gonna be epic I believe. Prices can’t keep going up and expect people to keep buying in. There are a few smaller breakers that I usually break with and they are already having trouble filling breaks, almost every time they have to do cheap fillers to get it done.

    Agreed. I've pulled back a lot of my purchasing due to the market just being out of whack. I don't think I'll ever stop doing it as a hobby, but my opening/buying has taken a huge step back.

    I mentioned this a while back, Fanatics already authenticating and slabbing cards now will probably lead to some shenanigans, like a card that would normally be pack pulled miraculously ending up in a Fanatics slabbed on their site shortly after release.

    2022 Topps complete sets are up on Target. Look like you can get the Tork, Witt, and Julio rookies in them, I'm assuming as a part of the 5 card rookie image variations.
