so only 1, maybe 2 autos per case and no Claire auto in 5 cases.

That tells us a great deal.

Yup...tells us that Topps has done it again. Roll Eyes I'm almost scared to see what only 4 boxes will reveal. *sigh*

I'm sure the Claire auto is Short printed but even if it wasn't with 11 autos at 1.5 per case it would still take nearly 8 cases to pull all 11 autos (with no duplication) so it'll take a lot more breakdowns before the rariries start to come to light, that or TOPPS finally updating their Heroes page.

Honestly, I agree, until more cases are broken it will be hard to tell which are rarer. I could have just gotten really unlucky is all. Topps could have every singer signing the exact same number of cards and I just got unlucky not to pull Claire, remember, I also didn't pull Issac, or Miccha and there should be no reason either of them are short printed right? I guess time will tell. The Patch cheerleading card WILL be super rare. They can only make maybe 100 MAX piece with that small patch. I don't think there were duplicate costumes at all, I think 1 costume was used for each card, and they were simply able to stretch them out well.

I can see why the sketches were a bit disappointing to you...with 5 cases, you should have expected slightly better. Some are nice, but...yeah. Still, I really like your costume cards and autographs! Smile

Thankyou for the breakdown, it was really fun to read. Smile

I love the Isaac costume card. It's a cool swatch and a nice card. Smile And the Hiro sketch at the far right of the top row is awesome! I love the cartoon style. The same goes for the Albrecht sketch of Mr Bennett on the bottom row. Really cool art. Smile

Thanks!

Olly

honestly, my biggest complaint is that I got freaking THREE repeat artists out of 5 cases. Topps is just horrible with coalation.

I really do like the autos and strangely, the costume cards too. The design is quite nice and your Mendez costume is great!! As for the sketches, well.....can understand your disappointment. Overall, looking at your cards, I am fairly sure I won't be disappointed with my 2 cases! Big Grin

I like the autographs and piecework cards too. Not a sketch card collector so not really too fussed what I pull in my case as most likely be trading or selling on the bay to fund the autographs I missing.

I hope the Topps Gods are kind to me (since it will be virtually my birthday when they arrive in Australia) and what would be a better birthday pressie than to pull a Claire auto Big Grin

I also love the costume & sketch cards.

I have, of course, by saying this guaranteed a sketch card in each of my 4 boxes.

Double bluff?

Won't know for about a fortnight.

Ideal collation for me would be 1 of each & I wouldn't mind what was in the fourth.

What was your opinion of the other cards - base & chase - Bryan?

The base are nice, and a good amount of Tim Sales artwork from the show is used which I am happy about. Unfortunatly there is only one chase set, a 10 card foil set which fall around 6 or 7 per box.

So the Hiro Costume cards are the same??
I mean, same picture of Hiro with a piece of his shirt or jacket. Hope this is not the deal with Claire's cheerleading patch.

And are there variants of the Claire costume card?? One with red & white maybe...

Bryan or anyone else who has open boxes. How many sets did you get per box ?? I read all of the comments and did not see a breakdown as far as sets. Thanks

PS. REALLY enjoyed your scans of the autos and costumes.

I guess since Bryan decided to go ahead and list early we will see how they sell to get an idea of what to expect.
