I personally really don't like the look of the cards, and it is really expensive at that.

Looking at the checklist, this has way too much rookie content for such a high end product. Hopefully, a company will come up with a decent (and cheap) holder for booklet cards since they don't seem to be going away anytime soon.

I can't even imagine the bath the rippers will take on this product. I'm assuming most boxes will yield a 50% return if you're lucky. The rookie autograph will be a $20 hit at best but most will bring $5 to $10 just like the Exquisite rookies. Can't wait to see those Mike Kafka, Brandon LaFell and Marcus Easley auto patches numbered to /150.

The name sounds pretty dumb. Some of the cards look alright...

I like the look. But I am not going to spend five bills on a Topps try at Exquisite.

Maybe it'll be like Chrome BB and FB and drop over 25% from the presell price and be reasonable

Chrome baseball is closing in on a 50% drop.

Anyhoo, 500 bones for a Topps attempt at exquisite? No way, you can keep your Jordan Shipley auto patch cards.

I hear what you guys are saying about Shipley, Easley, Kafka, etc patch autos relative to the price of the product. However, you are acting like Exquisite was different! Have you forgotten all those great RAPs from last year Exquisite?? Rhett Bomar, Andre Brown, Ramses Barden, Pat White, Patrick Turner, Derrick Williams, Glen Coffee....just to name a few!!
