9 cards a pack is interesting. Since you'd only get 192 base cards per box (24 x 8 base cards), that'd be only 384 over two boxes which would mean it'd be difficult to finish the 350 base set even with 2 boxes purchased.

The first series had 12 card packs which made completing a base set from two boxes a lot easier. I wonder why the change. Maybe it's actually 9 card packs for Retail, but still 12 card packs for Hobby boxes.

My mistake. Still 12 cards per pack -- 8 characters, not 5.

That's good, two boxes should yield a set. And besides the insert card per pack, another 12 or so base cards per box are replaced by parallel cards, so there's about 250 base cards per box the way it is now.

In Series one, the last 110 cards seemed to be printed in lesser quantity that the first 240. That was definitely true with my two cases. I wonder if that'll happen again.

Honestly, it depends...

IF it's two stickers stuck on one card. I wouldn't personally care for it. Confused (but lord knows I'd sell it).

IF it's two autographs on one sticker, that's a little better. At least they both handled the same sticker.

On card is really the only way to go. Topps should know that. They were able to coordinate sketchagraph cards. In a box that goes for $100+, you should get on-card autographs.

I will never pay that kind of money for a dual autograph.

It's very sad when you are not able to complete a master set anymore especially with Star Wars.

If you contact their agents you might be able to get them both to come to dinner at your house for $12K. Big Grin

Sorry if it's been answered already, but is Series 2 hobby only? I bought all of my Series 1 packs at retail, but I haven't seen any Series 2 packs yet.
