Old School qty remaining
« on: March 21, 2010, 08:10:29 AM »
Does anyone know how many boxes are remaining until an old school sellout? Topps website shows only 160 left? Is this it, or are there more boxes to be "restocked" to the website?

I have heard they have another 500 boxes to add but that could have happened already. We will soon find out.

Regardless of how many boxes are left for sale is it a sign they won't move forward with any other projects till they get the quota they need?

The number listed is not how many are left. They don't put all of them in at once. I'd guess there is a grand or so left. 

How many are left has no affect on the next series at this point as OLDS2 has already been approved (expected to be an Oct. release).

I'm more interested to know when it sells out for trading purposes & being able to buy new boxes in hopes of completing my set. I think the sketch prices etc... will start to increase & trading will get more difficult once new material stops flowing to everyone.

I think they will be adding more boxes to the site soon. I'll LYK when I hear of sell-out if they don't add all the boxes. They keep some back for website phone orders and a few other reasons (I think to avoid one person taking them all but not sure).

Sounds like a good plan! :^)

It seems like they are still selling at a pretty good clip.  I guess the "free shipping" thing ain't happening anytime soon.

I almost hope the free shipping thing doesn't happen, or I'll be even more tempted to buy more!  But, of course, as you know from our recent deal, I should just give up, and it will happen!!

There will be another free shipping promotion but it won't be for a bit. That's the type of thing they will do when they want to blow out other old stock and you can take advantage of it to get the Wacky stuff. I will LYK when it's planned. It will be a one-day type of thing.

It doesn't look like anybody will be buying Old School from Card Gary. His site is gone.

I just went to the Topps website, and Old School is marked SOLD OUT!?!?! Is this true?

Same here. When I mentioned the qty was getting low before, I got responses that indicated there was more inventory to add, and not to pay attention to the qty listed. I hope the website has only run dry temporarily until they can add more inventory tomorrow. i wanted to buy a few more boxes myself.

I dont know what the quantity is but I would guess over 400 at this point. I think what happened is once it got down to below 100 everybody went crazy and there was no one at Topps to update the number. I wish they would just put in the actual number if they are not sold out.

Dave mentioned above that there was about 1000 left so that could put us around 500 or so. They just need to update their website.

Well they still haven't updated quantities, maybe they really are out of stock?

It says it's Out Of Stock on the website but I don't see how that is possible. Someone needs to update the list. There was around 1000 left last I spoke to them and I seriously doubt someone bought them all. I know they had around 1000 stored in a different warehouse that were being shipped over to them once the baseball cards cases were low enough to fit them so maybe they are waiting for them to get to the shop before putting them back into stock. Don't want to sell something you can't ship out right away. I will call them about it today.

A couple of notes:
I just checked the qty remaining today 4/1 11:20am est. Stands at 357. I know they added 500 last week after the supply ran dry. Does anyone know if this is the last 500, or are there 500 more? This may be it!

FYI: Also, I found that the "WackyShip" promo code shown on the uncut sheet item also works with old school boxes. Not sure if it's a glitch, or on purpose. Anyone interested in getting free shipping on Old School before they sell out should try the code.

I have heard that Topps has about 350 boxes remaining on Old School right now on their website.  I have also heard that Topps has about 300 boxes that they have not listed yet.  I believe they are keeping these and are going to release them on their store sporadically to promote the ANS7 in July and Old School Two Boxes in The Fall.  This may be a rumor but it makes sense.

That is a nice problem for them to have that they have to hold back supply so it doesn't sell out too quickly!!  I bought 5 more boxes with the free shipping poster code yesterday.
