I agree, I’m about the same, roughly 16/17 autos I’d like to have/hit. This checklist has a few big names and I feel some really solid depth. I’d rather have 2-3 big names and quality depth than 5 big names with a bunch of nobodies.

Also I wish Blumstein would have made a big run in the main event this year. Him busting out Day 1 sucks. But his autos might be popular, lots of money in the poker industry. Heck he might even drive the prices up himself with his large stack

As a non-sports collector, that list is pretty darn impressive.

As always, you are wrong again. I have been a case breaker and dealer of Ginter since 2010 and this list is one of the best overall lists they've ever had. You are too focused on the handful of autos that sold for 700-1K and this release doesn't have one of those, but the overall quality is much stronger than most years. Far less "fillers" than most years. This is a really good list dude.

I have been bashing topps this year on production and my lack of nice hits..

But just the base baseball and non baseball checklist....

there is 110 cards...

i would say at least 25-30 are really nice... so 1/3

with many more mid level hits...

I am shocked how much better it is then i thought....

Then all the insert autos.. which the checklists are just big names

the rip card checklist is loaded

originals metals etc...

now we just wait till monday or tuesday when brent rolls in with the odds and case run....

Not out of the woods yet....

But if it sticks to 6-7 autos and 2 rips... it is going to be ok

Purely speculation, but the rip card checklist went from 90 last year to 100 this year. If those are #/60 again and duals are #/10, it's an increase from 2,925 cases to 3,225 cases. I would bet something like rips are up to #/75 and production is up near 4,000 cases ... but again, purely speculation. We'll find out soon.

I'm out on Ginter, but if Ginter X is the same format and print run as it was last year, I'm in for a case or two.

i'm guessing 4000 cases .... would love to see 3225.......

Ginter X was one of the products of the year last year... i am guessing they will run presses on that also......

The last few products were exactly 50% increase so I'm going with 4,400 cases and rips being higher than 75.

That would be rough.

But I doubt they change there plan for 2018

It won’t hurt value of rips much

But it just makes getting a bigger hit so tough

Bouchard was top 10, then slipped in locker room, sued tennis, won some of settlement, but now is second to last in odds each tournament.

Not sure if Spiranic is any good at golf, but she has a massive rack which is most of her Instagram posts and worth following

I was going to bring her up.

I would not be shocked if her first few autos were as high as 50 bucks

Id love them to do Christopher McDonald as Shooter Mcgavin, like they've done with Costner and Stallone
