Default 2018 Topps Now

So figured I'd start this one too.

2018 Topps Now Buyers Club

All I’ve decided to press forward with this going into the new year! I have learned much from last year’s club and the club I ran for MLS in 2016. The more people that buy all the better but totally understand the nature of the set, collecting and the depths of our pockets may preclude that from most. But I do not want to eliminate others from participation.
Changes:
Biggest change is that EVERYONE will get their own individual spreadsheet so as to eliminate me fat fingering things and, so we catch errors as soon as possible and not after cards arrive. The spreadsheet will track print runs, prices and be easily sortable. By the end of the year (if you buy all) you will have a very handy tool for the 2018 set.
Prices for All Buyers (as long as Topps prices don’t rise) is $5.00 for members who commit to buy all (Starting 1 January 2018) others will still be $5.50.
Shipping will be free to all North American buyers.

Payments will still be made via PayPal invoice for everyone’s protection. I invoice at the end of each month and all bills MUST be paid by the time the last card of that month arrives on my doorstep or you risk forfeit of your cards. Basically, I am fronting the money for you all to have cards, in the very least I should get paid on time. Exceptions are made for emergencies (of course).
I’ve been very forgiving in the past with late orders but will be sticking by the NLT one hour before time expires on the Topps Web site.
If you want to use my Platinum Membership reservation you have to be:
1. A member of the club in good standing (have bought and paid for cards in the past)
2. Be able to pay for the card immediately (Including a 10% surcharge)
3. The card can not be a member of the Phillies (they are mine)
4. Requests are first request gets it unless they an all buyer wants it…they have first dibs (first to text or email gets it) also all buyers are not charged a surcharge.

All e-mail correspondence will be done using a specific title prefix (to eliminate the Multiple members with the same name issues). I do think of all of the members of the club as friends but as the various Steve’s and Jason’s and James’ in the club will tell you I get them confused. So once we agree on a nickname use that in the title of all correspondence.
For example, my current buyers are:
AllMontyRed: I have no issue remembering Monty but it reminds me that Monty for some reason wants extra Reds cards.
AllRG: Again no issue remembering RG
AllLisaRocksBacksFish: My all buyers (so far) are easy to remember but as we get more folks involved it may not and the issues are mostly with the random and x team or player only buyers.
Just know once I give you your label we need to use it in all e-mails so I don’t get confused….there are a surprising number of Steve’s and Jason’s in the world of card collecting.
Please contact me if you’d like to be involved. Toppsnow226@gmail.com or here on blowout.
Also I will be starting my reviews of cards again and will be doing so via a YouTube channel starting early next Month. Joe Joe May’s Topps Now:

Thanks...

Someone just told me the other day that I didn't seem passionate enough about the product as of late...I think it was just because of the move and trying to get settled. I will be beating the Topps Now Drum daily now that the New Topps Now Themed Office is complete!

I really like the design of the cyber week cards. I'd love for that to be the design of Gleyber's 1st TN

I like them - very clean, but if they go with an event description, it might be hard to use the horizontal pic with the vertical stripe.

Guess we will have to wait and see but the Cyber weekend cards are very nice indeed.

I'm over 100 Yankees cards bought this year. I wonder how many my wallet will be subjected to next year.

So Jeeves said there will be a RTOD set again in 2018...Also said Pat Neshek might be doing something with Now in the future. Remember him getting all the All-Star sets signed at the All-Star game last year. So I am very hopeful all teams have an autograph version of the RTOD.

I did not know that about Pat. I did send him some cards through the mail and said he could keep one if needed but he signed all of them and sent them back.

More importantly, will there be a 25% discount card?

Guess Neshek better hope Grienke doesn’t make another ASG, at least if he wants to keep this new collecting tradition alive.

So I figure any day now we will be getting the Holiday card and a discount...perhaps one more Judge/Bellinger card is in order!

I am done with Topps now. Order snafus, damaged cards, long wait times past posted due date, and a Trump's club reservation system. I had fun with 2016, 2017 sucked.
I will watch this thread to see if they improve, but I have no faith in the company at this point.

I'm waiting for the "Spring Training Bump."

Anyone having thoughts on cards increasing in value in the spring like regular cards do?
