Think I'll wait to see where the prices start out at before I start buying:

So there's three boxes worth....and I see zero chance of making a profit, because over half of those will never sell that high.

Shouldnt be out yet, was just at my LCS and they had the case and was called by the company while I was there and was told NOT to sell it. Mix up in shipping during Thanksgiving weekend...someone didnt get the memo!

Exactly. She is the only one I want out of the set but I'm not kicking in $250 for her. I'll wait for the surge of them to show up before I start buying anything. Looking for a better price then that.

Did your LCS give you a idea on price? Curious to see what they are going for. The shop out here told me they will more then likely be comparable to Exquisite prices.

I was talking to a Beckett rep several years back and we had a friendly disagreement about exactly what was meant by "rare" or limited. Obviously you can look at the numbering and go from there. But at the time I was trying to make a point that everything is relative. What prompted the conversation was that I had pulled a Rusty Wallace autographed firesuit numbered to 2. I ended up selling it for $400 and was really satisfied, but the point I made to him was that this was one product and looking at 10 products per year suddenly you have 20 limited items. You do this for 10-15 years for a driver and we're looking at 300 "limited" items. So my point, looking at this product, it's nice but is it really any better than some the other pulls that have been shown on these boards? Seriously for what a person has to pay for some of these items, can't collectors find something just as nice from past products and just as "limited" at a more reasonable price?

I agree-sweet cards but theyll never sell for that much other than maybe the carls (davepitstop will pay w/e he wants if he wants it lol)

I just want a Jr. base...it that too much? I got a feeling the base cards will go high like the '09 Showcase parallels numbered to 15.

It's also insanity that the guy who finished 25th in points is in a release that costs $600 a box.

yeah I tend to not like this release at all even though the cards are sick-it just kills all normal collectors and no one is gonna make their money back lol

I thought he had no cards at all in the set?

His cards do sell very well, Press Pass knows it.

I'd disagree with that....looking at recently sold stuff, a Showcase auto /20 sold for $18, two Main Event autos both sold for less than $10, and Legends autos /25 sold for less than $23.

That's not nearly high enough to warrant putting him in a release that sells for $600 a pack.

Hell, one of his Five Star autos already sold and it was for $45. So I spent $600 for 5 cards, one of them is a base that won't get more than $20, and one of my autos just sold for less than $50? Good luck turning a profit on that box.

Bottom line....Keselowski does not deserve to be in a release like this. It should be limited to about 7-8 drivers MAX.

I'll stick to my $150 Showcase box coming today lol, looks like no ROI on this product....and $660 for PC pieces is too rich for my blood :)

Man, Ive seen some un-FREAKING-believable cards!

This one guy has a Keselowski Firesuit #/10, and the starting bid is $100!
No way would I pay that much...

They have taken a huge drop in the past month, not many people can afford these anymore.

I know he doesn't deserve to be in this....I'm not learning anything new here. They probably had so many nice swatches of firesuit leftover of him from WME...his firesuit cards were truly disappointing in that release.

I have to agree, Brad doesnt need to be in this release...
But, it doesnt hurt me :)
It does hurt the stick and ball guys who buy a box just to sell everything to make a buck....

Press Pass catered a release to suit them. Probably 70% of Five Star will be people trying to flip it....and hardly anyone will make a profit. Hopefully this is a one-and-done release, because PP is going down a bad road with products like this.

i agree but i dont see it going anywhere at least until next year one everyone realizes they cant make any money on it. Most if not all of the racing collectors cannot afford such things.

The only reason Danica is in this product (and almost every product this year!) is because she's a $$ maker!
Just like Dale Jr.....neither can drive for crap, and its SO AMAZING to see them run in the 20's!
Yeah right!
