Not asking you to be sorry, just not sure why people kill a product from the get-go. Back in 2016, I was the first one to list cards #1 and #2. I priced them at $100 each and sold both at the price. I'd like to think I helped to create the hype on Topps Now. Hard to create hype on something when people are selling them for below cost out of the gate. I know it's not your fault Jake, there is just too much competition on eBay and people like to work for pennies.

That is something that should have been addressed at the summit. Topps should reward those who do not kill their product in the secondary market. Jeeves, maybe send special/limited cards to those who help promote the product, not destroy it.

what worries me about buying these on ebay is that the cardstock and PWE's may not mix on these

TN's are heavy on the gloss, so they seem to hold up just fine with PWEs

Love the idea. Picked up the first 3, and a few extra Judges for my Dad, daughter and a few more to hold and hope they’re worth something one day.

Sorry if already has been asked: What is the estimated print run for the Judge card after being sold for a week? I know it is hard to estimate but just looking for someone smarter than me to give a ball park estimate.

And with the quantity you are moving, the pennies add up quick!

You should do a video of your shipping operation one day.

You keep doing what you are doing, Jake. All of the barbs at you by the other bulk buyers are ridiculous, as are the panders to Topps for more free exclusives for folks who donít do what youíre doing.

If Topps doesnít like what youíre doing, they can always restrict the amount purchased per person and/or stop offering such steep discounts for bulk purchases.

PS: Bet they donít do that. But maybe they will start sending you the streaky autos on your Plat exclusives.

You should. He’s awesome to buy from. Very fair prices, prompt and friendly communication, and great overall service.

I don’t know him personally and have nothing to gain from saying this. I’ve just bought a lot from him during the last year, and it’s a voluntary testimonial that he’s one of my favorite eBay sellers of all time. Never have to worry about being treated fairly and right.

I'm not throwing any barbs directly at Jake. I have dealt with him before and have had great experiences. I was just stating how I don't get how people can devalue a product so quickly. I just don't understand the fascination with wanting to make pennies per card and pray that a card or two does not get "lost" in the mail. Yeah, having the Platinum Club definitely makes it more worthwhile, but I would rather just buy the autos and flip those for a minimal loss. To me, that makes more sense than shipping out 20-60 cards a day.

I hope Topps will do for this what they already could have been doing with regular ToppsNow which is to release an official dedicated padded binder for the line every so often, perhaps allowing ToppsNow buyers to vote on what player to feature on each, if any. A binder for the Living set using the 53 design elements would also be popular with vintage collectors, I think.

Sale price not including shipping charge $5.25
Shipping Cost $.49
Item Cost $3.75
EBAY FEE: $ 0.53
PAYPAL FEE: $ 0.45
TOTAL PROFIT: $ 0.03

Still a $.03 profit as long as the envelopes are free.
If one gets "lost", you need to sell 125 more just to get that money back. Seems like a pretty solid business plan.
