Thanks guys.
Good to know.

Aaron Wilkerson added. (At least to the Retail sticker set, which he's shown signing in his Twitter.)

28-year old Brewers' pitcher.

Probably will see a big case price increase because of this.

I canít say Iím surprised at all. These will easily hit $150-175 a regular box and $309 for jumbo. Itís almost a guarantee. Statistics tell me that one of 2 things will happen...

1.) not as much product will be ripped this year as investors will be holding cases which means less quantities will be available.

2.) Ohtani base auto will be $1000-1500 while other prospects will bring higher than normal prices due to the overall case prices

If topps is somewhat aggressive with the checklist, then I agree. But that's not a slam dunk imo.

What is the hope checklist number wise?

Between prospect and rc autos, would under 85 auto subjects make you happy?

One interesting thing to follow...do group breakers open a ton of this? I would expect so, but not totally sure.

One of the things driving prices for 2017 Bowman Chrome was group breakers buying a ton of it. Prices are very inflated, IMO. Group breakers led to way more demand than supply, and prices are now $1650 for hobby cases here on Blowout. I bought multiple cases for $675 the weekend of release, and from that point on the demand just kept growing, because group breakers were filling tons of cases and making big $$$. There is nothing to justify the $1650 price, except for group breaker demand. No one on that checklist is selling for considerably more than they were at release, and overall the auto checklist is average at best.

So where will demand lie from group breakers? I think that will play a factor (a considerable factor, potentially) in what cases are selling for after release.

Of course they will. Look at how fast houdini's presell breaks sold at 20% more than what the most recent Draft breaks were going for.

I love a good gamble, but I'm not touching randoms on this. The smart money will be in PYP, allowing the guys paying for Ohtani to carry most of the break cost.

If it's north of 70 this will be a bloodbath.

Hobby ticked up another $25 to 1750 (after being unavailable for a day or so).

Jumbo up $50 (up to 2200).

Just a trickle up at these already hyped-up prices. Hype or no-hype, if BO can't keep them in stock it's tough to argue with them increasing prices (because they are VERY likely paying an increase in price from other places to get more product). Doesn't mean that somewhere upstream isn't hoarding something, of course.

I'd have to really consider selling cases/boxes myself and not opening (which is a phrase I never thought I would type because even at a loss, it's just a lot of fun) if hobby keeps climbing... we are 33% increase away from 200/box. For frame of reference, that's the same % increase that has occurred in the last 13 days.

I don't think Houdini is doing his 50 case break this year, product got to high. I woud hope he does at least a couple 20 casers

I've asked about this and he told me the biggest was possibly a 20 caser but he wasn't sure because prices kept going up.

Interesting the jumbo jumped. They had 1 case left listed at $2149 since the last price jump. Saw it was 5 cases yesterday. Now 5 cases today at $2200.
