I'm not even sure it's in there. Buyers of Razor Poker were promised a Stu Ungar cut auto and that hasn't showed up even with 95% of the production run exhausted.

I believe the Heyward Super hasn't been pulled either. I doubt that one is in there also.

You guys better watch it, or Mr. Gray will threaten to sue you for libel.

There's still a lot of it out there. You all thought the 52 Mantle RC auto wasn't in Legends of the Diamond but it eventually got pulled.

Also, keep in mind that all cards that get pulled do not filter through the forum system. I am a collector of 20 years, but have only been on the forums for around 3 years.

But if it was pulled, you'd think they'd go spread the word online

let's be honest, the super nice production hits won't surface til it's nearly dry b/c if razor had put it in the first batch of RRR cases, then no one would buy the rest, so if the chase are 1/1's, you can bet that they won't show up in the 1st week no matter how many ppl are busting

If this is true why would anyone ever buy "the first batch of RRR cases" knowing it can not be in there?

Not saying its true but the last few products the huge hits didnt appear till way after the products release. What a qawinkydink eh? People have been talking about this for a while now about how amazing it is.

Now as for why someone would buy, cause most people have not been watching closely but the word has been flying around for a bit now so more and more will be noticing. Now thats not to say the first batch isn't loaded but its still an odd coincidence to say the least.

Razor sold all of their cases before the product was released, so I doubt they'd care when it gets pulled.

I'm sure it is out there somewhere, either pulled or still in a box (there are multiple people hoarding unopened boxes for investment purposes).

No they do...they would just whip up a couple cases later and insert them, or just hold a couple back from the original packing and release them later. They never released case numbers, so you have no way of knowing if they sold out, unless you take their word for it.

Thanks my friend- yeah I believe I just saw them "up close and personal" (lol) on the Pujols thread he started......since he's started a Pujols collection, maybe he will be interested in my Gem Mt 10.

Yes they do care let me explain why. If the stras, jordan and the heyward are pulled in week 1 now even though razor has none left (supposedly) the prices drop and who gets burnt? The major distributors who bought in at the high buy in price.

And now take a guess who wont be buying the next grab bag when now they are left with 100 cases that they must lose money on and now the main hits are gone. Do you think they will continue to buy these cases if time after time the if floor keeps falling out? No they wouldnt. And to be completely honest all razor/leaf really has is that they love to say "this product sold out" This is why its in there best interest to make sure this dont happen.
