    It's genius move by Topps IMO. I will spend 100x on these and real cards then something on an app.

    I'll be a buyer of the Red Sox set especially with the 25% off code Topps sent me in the mail this week.

    The auto set is intriguing for $99.99 but not sure if I'll be buying-if it was a guaranteed Benny auto I definitely would be, but Price and Sale don't appeal as much to me.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I got the promo, too, which got me thinking about it. But $37.50 (with promo), for 15 cards???? Really? Double the price and you will get an autograph. If it was Tanaka, sure, but the others you can get for a lot less. Sure, they have low production, but I doubt that they will ever have a profit margin in the future. My opinion, for what it's worth.

    no promo received but I'm still not biting at $37.50 for 15 cards. Maybe $10 dlvd for 15 cards since that's not as outrageous.

    The pricing is why I call it a monster margin product. Maybe Topps will not print to demand but overprint enough that you'll eventually find it in their store during a 60% off sale and free shipping.

    I went after all the Reds cards in 2016. I'm not a huge fan of the price or the idea of ST cards.

    I'll wait until the season starts before I buy again.
