Perhaps....but that doesn't mean to have to stuff every product full of rookie autos, especially your retro products.

Topps already has several other product line focused on rookies....

I actually like the Heritage RC autos. This year it just happened that Judge broke the entire Heritage ecosystem.

I know this wouldn't work on any other product, but if Topps just put out a guaranteed hit-less hobby box (that had everything it usually does minus the autos) of Heritage for a proportional price, I would buy it all. Heritage retail mega-box - 16 packs and maybe a retail parallel if you have to.

Or you can just bank on Judge madness not happening again. That thing was an anomaly.

this years H was more like Heroin then Heritage long before #ALLRISE came to be

the RC Autos of Benny, Swanson & Bregman all dwarfed AJ in March/Early April

Hell, even the non-autos did the same.

Heritage is never going to be what it was, 2013 changed the game with the SSPS and Actions (yes, i know there were "actions" in 2012, but those dont really count)

Nah, this is mostly just a Heritage thing + there's still a ton of 2017 products yet to hit, many of which will be overproduced and stagnant which will end up dampening any enthusiasm 2018 presells might have going.

What's the auto/relic ratio per case? The reason I would avoid a case is because my understanding is that there's more relics than autos in each case.

The 4th quarter always sucks the life out of the party. Heritage and Series 1 pre-sells are traditionally at their lowest point in November/December since everyone is getting killed on other products and distributors need money.

There will be a ton of this available. Heritage is in no way limited or allocated. These retailers can order 500 cases each if they want. They won't hold that much product hostage. I'm fairly certain you can find Heritage under $800 for a long time before it will matter.

Raise your hand if you're surprised that mfw13 and HeritageKing are already complaining about a new release.

Factory cost is approx. 36.00 more this year. A more realistic retail presell price should be around 750.00 for 2018

Raise your hand if you knew that coachnip13 was going to post specifically
to complain about our posts, while contributing nothing to the discussion himself.

There is no discussion. You've been posting the same thing for two years. Please tell us once again that you won't be buying any boxes when _________ comes out.
