    Atrocious product, complete money grab. That being said the people who buy these still might make money off of them because other people are dumber.

    Haven't looked at where bidding is, or if you can see it, but I'm thinking about throwing a little money at it. From the etopps to Topps Now and Living Set, the first run on these things always take off in value for some reason. With a known print run, maybe that's minimized, but I would not be surprised in the least if boxes hit ebay selling for 2-3x purchase price. But it's probably better to just sit this one out.

    But the product itself looks like total junk. They're including 9s? And the checklist is unexciting. Sure, Vlad and Eloy and Alonso are in there, but at this point in the year no one cares. Limiting it to prospects and a small number of logo RCs I think is a mistake. Wouldn't Trout, Bregman, Soto, or Acuna be better than, say, Jake Cave or Cal Quantrill? And no Yordan? Plus, green x-fractor is bottom of the barrel in terms of popularity aethetically.

    I have a bid in.

    I liked them when I thought they were autographed.

    I do not with no auto and no chase element.

    Including PSA 9s is boggling. You're Topps...the f-ing card manufacturer. If you're sending these cards directly to PSA (or probably having graders come to their facility), then you should be able to print cards that grade out to 10 every damn time!

    Spend a little money to improve your printing and cutting processes - it's 2019, for Pete's sake!

    To me the real fix is to do parallels

    Super-X Fractor 1/1
    Red-X Fractor /5
    Orange-X Fractor /25
    Gold-X Fractor /50

    That would do it quite nicely. As it is this has no chase beyond player selection.

    Between BO and Twitter Iím so amused by how many people are complaining about this product. If you donít like it then donít buy it
