The website images for the costume cards they show are numbered M3, M7, M19, M21, M25, M35, so it appears there are indeed 39 new ones.

You can also pre-order up to 2 boxes of Big Bang 5 on their website.

There's a checklist up on the Cryptozoic web site now. Odds on memorabilia cards is given as 1 in 18 so that's 16 in a case!

I'm just wondering how people will react to this set.

*There's some repeat autos but Nimoy and Spinner are a big plus for the set. Cuoco isn't signing for the set though

* There's only 1 redemption instead of 2 from the previous set. That should increase the prices for the redemptions since there will only be 25 this time.

* There should be an average of 12 autos and 16 costumes per case.

* How many 'Main autos' will be in a case on average? 1-2?

* What can we expect case prices to look like? We're only 3 weeks away from release day and there's still cases available at $770 :0

* Can we still expect this set to break $1,000++ a case? BB 3/4 were selling at a high of around $1,300 a case.

That is a good question, Heroeslost. You would need at least 3 cases to get one of each costume if you got no duplications. SO, are people going to be snatching up cases to do this? After the first two releases, I have no main cast member autos (Which I am fine with) but I have a costume cards for all of the 7 regulars (the 4 guys and 3 gals) which I am happy with.
SO, when my 2 boxes arrive, I will be glad with what I have and hope to trade for the inserts I need and feel content. If I can trade for autos/costumes that will be cool but I am not making it a priority. I will be good. I wonder how others feel?

Then, when I saw how much those card cost, I quickly relegated the set to the bottom of my priority list. If I couldn't afford to put together the first set, I certainly wasn't going to try and start any future sets. If I happen to find the missing autograph cards at a reasonable price, I'll pick them up as I can afford.

I might try to pick up that Leonard Nimoy card, if it's not too expensive. I think it'll be a cool card with his signature with a picture of the Spock action figure.


Me tooooo! I'd love to get one if it's not too crazy Smile I'm willing to go some crazy, though Wink

At an educated guess, I'd say the starting price will be in the $800 - $1000 range. That's why I've only ordered one box - to pay for my vacation next year Big Grin

Nimoy has done many autograph cards for the various Star Trek sets. It is a testament to his demand that the prices remain in the $200 to $300 range. The supply is there and he will likely continue to sign for many more years.

I have no idea how many cards he signed for BBT and it would be fantastic to pull one. Having said that, I wouldn't pay anymore for this card than I would for his others if I wanted his autograph.

I have said this many times before, as long as its an authenticated signature the card doesn't matter. Collectors should be looking for the cheapest card, not the most expensive one. Why pay extra just because its part of a pricey set that you will never complete anyway. If you have a choice and its the same certified autograph, why would you spend more?

Between $800 and $1,000? Never. Roll Eyes

Star trek + Big Bang Theory+ Coolest Spock Image EVER = premium.

I am still missing his auto from Twilight zone and it has started to show up in the upper 150 to 180 range. I just have only paid 100.00 once for an auto and I don't plan on doing that anytime soon!

Interesting..for me it's the reverse, it's the CARD that matters, the signature is secondary at best. heck I'd take a BLANK one if that's what it took Wink
I collect cards, not signatures. It's fun to have them, but...yeah...I like cards...

Exactly and that's because the focus of your collection and business is Star Trek, so you collect all things Star Trek. Whereas I consider myself an autograph collector who has determined that certified autograph cards are the most reliable way to collect my favorite celebrity signatures.

Not that I don't also have favorite sets, I do, but they are all autograph heavy and I don't feel the need to purchase everything in them in order to be complete. The lament that I keep hearing in the forums is from some members that have such focused collections, once they realize their new sets contain cards they can't possibly afford, they would rather quit buying something they enjoy. Well I would rather expand my focus and keep enjoying my hobby by not concentrating on the best cards, but on the best autographs at the best prices.

Since this is a BBT thread I'll give you a great example of what I mean and maybe a tip for some fans. In the Season 3-4 set, the main cast expanded to seven actors. All their autograph cards are expensive and rare. I never pulled any of them, not the five of the first set and not the seven of the second set. Although I like all the actors, I refuse to pay the market price for any of those cards. The autographs are not worth it to me.

However, I do own a Melissa Rauch certified autograph card. Thumb Up Its from True Blood Premier 2012 and her character was not a regular. In 2013 her BBT autograph was released and it is booking at $334 in NSU. You won't find her True Blood card listed in NSU, it is a common. I paid $25 for it and it is the same authentic on-card signature. It just cost me 92% less.

Now that's what I mean by not restricting your collecting to self imposed rules and restrictions. I like Rauch as an actress. What card she signed is not important. I'm happy to have her signature and I'm happy to keep collecting cards. Smile

I was wondering if anyone was going to be opening a case of these? Anyone know how many of the main 6 autographs you get in a case?
Thanks.
