Speaking of speculation. I wonder, when the binders sell out if Topps will offer them again as a plain binder? I sure wouldn't want to risk not getting a set hoping for non-LE binders though.

I think Topps knows there are only about 125 hardcore collectors and they will be taken care of with 150 binder sets. Non-Limited Edition sets don't sound likely. Also,  if they ARE going to do Non-Limited binders; they hopefully well tell us that BEFORE the Limited ones go on sale..... So that we may make informed decisions.

I agree with that point entirely.  If I had my way, I'd love to see one high quality binder, make it limited if that's Topps' wish, for all 1-16 with a puzzle (though I don't know how you could list all the stickers on the back) and a sketch for us less financially inclined buyers.   I'd prefer to pay $100 for something like that than $800-1000 for a set of 17 binders, even though I admit it would be very cool to have 17 puzzles and sketches.

I think part of the process of Topps setting a higher price on OS Binders is that Topps is aware that most of us have substantial investments in our OS sets. That will influence us to drop more on binders for those sets as opposed to a binder to house a New series release. OS cards are the bedrock of our hobby. They warrant cool binders.

Plans may change in the future, but as of this writing, I don't think there's any plans for a non-limited binder set.

UPDATE:

I just heard that topps.com will release the first set of four binders as a PRE-SELL in the next couple of days (either May 8 or 9)!

Also, sales will be strictly limited to 2 binder sets per credit card/household.

Thanks for the info and thanks for (I'm assuming) looking out for us collectors by encouraging them to put a low limit on these babies.

Does this mean the subscription idea, i.e., guaranteeing the ability to buy the whole run, is out?

Any idea how many of the 150 will go on pre-sell?

Nope, they should have details about a subscription when they do the pre-sell...

Neil, Topps site doesn't state anything about a subscription to insure we get the other 13 binders. Can you look into this?

it might for for set 2, but it will not work for this pre-order.
you cannot get 20% off with this pre-order. the coupon code is not valid.

I just ordered a set at 12:36 Eastern and there still are available. I also purchased a ANS10 binder and used the code towards it.

$260 for 4 binders?  Really?  Even with all the "extras" that is ridiculous.  Hell, the binders for series 5 - 8 will be worth more than the cards they are meant to store.  Probably 9 - 12 as well!  Sorry, no offense, but spending over $1000 to get a set of these things is idiotic.

I am so done with Topps...

Does anyone know how many bonus cards you get with this? It looks to me like the Sketch Card, Certificate, artist Bio card, and 3 monus cards might be part of the puzzle?

The picture on the website only shows 9 cards

Too rich for my blood. If anyone is just buying extra binders for the sketches i might be interested in just the binders depending on price.

I was feeling somewhat similar to what you wrote.  I did, however, buy a set this morning.  Still not sure if it was the right move for me, but they do look incredibly cool.  I wish I could see more of what is available and have a guarantee of getting all 17 binders, but I decided to go for it.  I suppose time will tell if it was the right move for me, but I do look foward to seeing these.

Speaking of seeing them, has there been a date given for when they will be shipped?

I believe the 9 card sheet is it, there is nothing else.
the front is the puzzle and the back is everything else - a promo, 2 checklists, artist bio, sketch, COA and 3 wacky ads.

Neil,

I think they are actually sketch 'stickers' (and signatures), that are being stuck on to the back of the checklist sheet.

see how the checklist cardboard is that grey/brown color, and those two items are bright white? stickers.
