Yea, I haven't seen anything for the FOTL treasures. Hopefully it isn't a day I am jammed up with meeting, cause lord knows it is a 3 hour process to just get one box

I just want to see what the special "FOTL" insert will be. Obvious no brainer buy no matter what.

I doubt it. Im going to say base/non auto RC #d to like 18 or something like that.

They know they don't have to pump additional content in this for it to sell.

the FOTL exclusive will probably just be a base card #/8-13.

I don't see it like that. I don't think they've ever bumped up MSRP on this FOTL stuff. You'll see $500 boxes (id say $550 at a max).

They'll skimp on content here, not charge a higher price. You have to remember, they are selling this to distributors at the same exact cost across the board...they are just requiring them to take junk product to get it. They are making $100 more a box on this selling it D2C.

At this point, I wouldn't expect to see extra auto content. Id expect to see a rare parallel of top RCs. Remember, most sports NTs have 10+ cards in a box. Basketball sticks mostly to whats on the box...6-8 cards. They don't load basketball like they do other sports. I think some of that is due to the $$$ in licensing fees they pay to the NBA. MSRP is the same for Basketball and Football NT. There's a reason you get more cards in FB than you do in Basketball.

Dist cost to a retailer on this is $386 per box. That means dist cost probably $350 and direct accounts around there as well I would guess.

I think given how successful the NT football has been, this will be the hardest to get product in the FOTL program so far. The question really is, if you get one, do you open or sell? Unlike other products that cost around $100, this is 5x+ that meaning the risk/reward is much higher than the other FOTL basketball products.

I had no idea NT was out so soon, this is news to me.
Isn't NT traditionally a July/August release?

I've opened most of the fotl bball product from this season and I can say when it's loaded, it's loaded. I'd be very tempted to open up a box if I can get my hands on it.

optic definitely seems a little less loaded than the other stuff.

Originally FOTL was meant to presell 2-3 weeks before Hobby release

Optic was just the week before and most recd product the day before Hobby release.

I’m sure many are watching like a hawk.
