I won't pre-order at all. I have gotten burned both ways before. I pre-ordered cards at higher prices than they came out and I pre-ordered cards that I never got because the seller over extended his orders.

I decided I don't need the aggravation, but I can see why a lot of collectors are becoming more inclined to order way in advance on stuff like BBT. They are afraid that if they wait for a true release date the box prices will go up, but I hope stories like this will at least make people more cautious. You can't pay strangers up front for cards that don't show up for 6 months. Better to lose the cards, than lose your money and the cards. Frown

The thing is this person has 100% feedback with great comments. Last time I waited and the boxes were very expensive. I pre-ordered at what was a fair price and this happens. At the time the release date was only a few weeks away but that changed rather fast. At least I know my Bettie Page pre order will be coming.

Oh yeah, I fully understand that we all feel the pressure to lock in prices on certain popular titles that we know we want.

Dealers are under pressure too, because they have to get in orders months in advance of a release date without even knowing what's in the product. Then they get allocated down from the number they tried to order and the release date comes and goes. So what do they tell their customers that were pre-sold product?

Maybe your seller was reliable at one time, but went out of business. Maybe she made a mistake, oversold and spent the money. Maybe she intended to take people's money and disappear all along. Who knows?

But if the buyer protection was valid you would have at least gotten your money back. This loophole with the time elapsing after the pre-sale of a delayed release is a new thing to consider, and many collectors don't realize that eBay won't cover it if it happens.

That is why I said don't deal with strangers on pre-sales, but 20/20 hindsight is always perfect.

Welcome. Awesome case, one of the best.

Is it just me or is every second case break I see involve a redemption. Surely there can't be any left!

Yep...there was one with Raj and Bernadette, and another with Penny and Bernadette.



I got 2 auto/costume cards as well (Bernadette and Sheldon Big Grin). I will be posting the rest of my fantastic case later as I have only opened 9 of the boxes so far.

After being told that my pre-sale order of a sealed case was no longer going to happen (I did get a refund from the seller finally), I found a sealed case at a considerably higher cost than the pre-sale amount.

Opened the case this week and did not receive one of the autographed costume cards that I assumed were one per case.

I already contacted Cryptozoic about it and their response was basically tough luck. The odds are not guaranteed and they don't seem to be willing to do anything.

I have purchases cases of their products in the past (Vampire Diaries, Walking Dead, Smallville, etc) without any issues.

Now this.

I am done with them and their products.

Getting unallocated for the case, then paying more than I thought I was going to pay and now not getting any help from customer service.
They can keep their cards.

My box arrived today.
I got one base set and pulled

Elevator: E-02, E-09
Couples: CPL05, CPL07
Costume Cards: M-10, DM03
Autograph: Brian George
no redemtion
no printing plate
no autograph costume card

Too bad I only pulled 1 autograph, and one that I already had from the previous set.

And why did Cryptozoic change the autograph design? Not that I don't like the design from this set, but it would've been nice to have some consistency.
