Wow that NL signer list is brutal. I got burned pretty hard on the AL sets last year at 200/pop, so I think I'll be sitting this one out and buying a Judge auto down the line.

Because the starters don't sign well. If you look it says 16-20 weeks for all of them

I don't think the NL will sell out.

In a resale sense, not talking about being misled. I got what I was told I would get.

"Buy all four to guarantee" the Judge I wanted. Thought there would be value to help subsidize my Judge chase, but there was not. Autographs sold cheap, base sets were equivalent to kindling (partially due to the fact the base component of the auto sets weren't sent out for months, though that changes here). And with the way they seed the really low numbered autos towards those who buy in bulk, almost everyone would be better off just waiting and buying the card/s they want on the secondary market. Plus you've got the 4-5 month wait for your money to be tied up.

I wasn't guaranteed anything, so this wasn't a primary issue, but I went for 8x AL sets last year, and everyone else who posted their hits had 25% or less base autos in their orders... I had 4 of 8 at /99.

Altuve and Correa autos /99, even with the Astros red hot, were selling for $30-50 IIRC. Blues /49 not much more than that. Think I ended up getting $250 on eBay before fees on a Trout Purple /25. Was easily the worst return for me on any Now purchase I've made; base, auto, set or otherwise.

Pretty sure the AL sold out after a few days with 4 signers (last year) instead of 5 (this year). I rushed to buy first day last year and remeber thinking I could've took my time. NL "sold out" on the last day I think, but had Harper, Posey, and Blackmon compared to Baez, Contreras, and Freeman. Though this year's NL sets are much cheaper.

Tracking what you’re saying...would have been best to buy the Judge later even at last years higher prices.

As a Cubs fan, I love the NL lineup. Would’ve liked to have seen Arenado as a signer too. Not sure if I’ll shell out $360 to secure all 3 signers though. There are already so many Baez Now autos out there. I really just want a Contreras and should be able to get a nice /5 or /10 off eBay down the line for cheaper than $360.

The AL lineup is intriguing, but I’d only want a Judge. Last year’s Judges are aplenty on eBay and that had the RC logo. Might patiently wait it out.

Yeah, could've picked up the Purple /25 Judge I got in one of my sets at $225 shortly after the autographs were fulfilled last year. Would've been a much more efficient purchase. I thought they'd sell higher across the board (all players). Just sharing my experience for those thinking about buying.

Won't be buying these. I see nothing but a $$$ loss from a resale perspective.

The funny thing is that Machado won't be with the Orioles by the time he signs for this.

Crazy weekend for the D'Backs. In a 16 inning marathon (at least) right now with the Padres. Arizona has 3 players who have gone exactly 0 for 7 each. That can't have happened too many times. Tying run on 3rd for Arizona in the bottom of the 16th now...
