But you can get a Topps Series 2 hobby box for around $40 so even if you pull nothing of note you're not exactly out a huge amount of money. But just a warning from someone who hadn't collected for over 15 years until this year, it can become very addicting.

fazzle said:I'm still planning on preordering a case of 2013 Topps Chrome FB at some point, but I'm still holding out hope for the price to drop before I put in for them. Cheapest I'm finding online right now is $900, if anyone knows somewhere to preorder for cheaper let me know (other than eBay. preordering on eBay is a giant fucking gamble because by the time the product actually comes out, you're way past your window for opening claims if the other person screws you)
