Might be going rate. Not everyone has a Target nearby.

It's day 1. Nothing is real today. Give it a couple weeks. I think most people expect there to be multiple waves of this stuff. Topps is going to crank the presses on this....it's retail, last year they probably took a bath on this product, and they know it'll sell like hotcakes.

Obviously this is Florial's first chrome card, so why is it not marked his Bowman 1st? Is it only due to the fact it is not in the base cards but just an auto? Its like the James Nelson thing this year in 2018 Bowman, his first chrome card anywhere (that i can find) and it is not marked his first for some reason. Wonder if the Baez or Merandy Gonzalez will be marked first in the same graphic as their bowman card from this year.

Also checked 3 targets today, no luck. Asked at each one if they had them in the back and no one budged, one place had a truck arrive today but the person said no Excel stuff, was really hoping to hit 20+ like some of these lucky ducks on here!

The odds were posted earlier. Much smaller production increase than any of us thought. I felt the same as you...that this wasn't going to be worth it. But odds are surprisingly good.

I am a skeptic of the product in general as I stated earlier, but as long as people are going to buy full display cases and stores are sold out, the secondary market will of course kick in and you'll see at least some kind of premium on boxes. I can admit when I'm wrong, and I was wrong that Topps would crank the presses.

Didn't have a display going up at mine just had them on the shelves at the Gastonia NC one. Me and another guy pretty much both got to shelf at the same time and basically said 11 each? We both checked out and I should've grabbed his number to see what he got. I haven't opened anything trying to figure out if I should sell each box or bust?

Because, now people will buy the megas because of Florial, and by them having his "first" auto in chrome, people will buy that too.

They know what they are doing.

Next time you need to bust them yourself. Don't be foolish.

Guess it depends on who you talk to.

I have opened them without permission
I have had managers open them
I have had cashiers open them
I have been told no
I have been told I can open them
I have shown up and they were already open
Hell I think one time a cart guy opened them for me haha

If that's your on ebay, you might want to take a better picture. Looks like a big scratch across his face (I'm guessing that's on the toploader?)
