Did anyone who bought in bulk get their orders yet or is Topps shipping the smaller orders first?
I received shipping information that night for my 24 boxes.

How your break going overall? Seems like some nice auto hits.

Yea my guess would be that redemptions in this will match up exactly with the people who were redemptions in regular Ginter.

Awesome hits!

Yeah, Iíd say pretty goodó thanks for asking. 7 down and 5 still to open. Iím still pretty new to the hobby ó and this is the first year I bought Ginter X. Whats interesting about ripping this product is that, even if you buy a case-worth youíre getting 12 loose boxes. So there isnít any collation at a case-level. Hence, Iím not sure what to make of the fact that after 7 boxes I have 3 base Ohtanis and 4 base Acunas, e.g.

I'd make of it that it means you'll probably make your money back and then some as long as you get them up on eBay in the next day or two

Hey OP - Do you want to mark on the REDEMPTIONS on the auto list in the original post. Will maybe make it easier for people to know that they've been seen, but we just don't know how many there are until received... just a thought. And thank you for doing this!

Based on my 12 boxes, it looks like you are getting on average 6 base cards per player and 0.5 minis per player.

Should be closer to 5 base of each player, and 2 of each SP (301-350).

Makes sense. I didn't even factor SPs into the equation.

Seems like this might help the value of these ... especially if people are working toward a master set. That will make them act sooner to pick them up, fearing they'll be gone fast.

At first I didn't like that these are numbered ... I love true SSPs (e.g. Heritage throwbacks) ... but I'm coming around.

I think the "unannounced short-print" was all the rage with some card companies in the past. While I get some of that logic, I think showing numbers (and printing odds) are generally an enticement for me.

This numbering should give people a pretty good idea of how the print run is pretty small here ... could spark extra demand for the boxes.

I think the extra demand for boxes will be sparked by the fact that there will be very few available on the secondary market.

Yeah, the smaller run and one-source source to get (at least initially) always bumps that for sure if there's interest. Limited autos atop that could get interesting.
