I don't do the Now stuff, except for a couple PC player pickups. But this is a set I'm thinking of getting into. Would be awesome if they had a subscription system (like the old Time Life books). Then you wouldn't have to remember to order every week to continue your set.

It's overused. It doesn't make any sense for them to tie this whole new concept to a design that's been used numerous times already. I understand Topps has history to draw from but they're using it as a crutch and reeks of laziness.

For any of the early buyers, I was just notified they will be giving me store credit for the shipping charge.

Will probably end up way overprinted, but went for 20 Judges. Going to probably end up with 2x 3-card bundles by the end of the week.

It will probably seem so at first, but if Judge has staying power and if this set survives for 2-3 years, there will likely be plenty of demand for them longer term, and thus decent value growth.

Dear Jeeves - Please add subscription option to The Living Set so I don't have to remember to order every week. Good for you, good for me. Thank you!

I'll be doing a subscription for this as well. $5.50 a card if you just want random and $5.00 a card if you want them all. Have to pay up front though for the first 100 cards. e-mail me at joejoemay@yahoo.com if interested.

This... and maybe lower price point with purchase/subscription commitment?

Iím really digging this set. Now I have to decide if I just want to pick up various singles or do the set.

Picked up the first 3 cards of the living set from spw, no idea how long I will focus on this but I dig the concept. May position my focus on Braves players only after a certain amount of time.
