Select put their 3rd AFL set for the year up for presale today, this time it was the premium AFL Optimum. Sold out in 3 minutes at $315 a box. A got 1 box so I'm happy. People are already putting them up on ebay for $1000.

Those are probably all going to sell out immediately and go on eBay for $300.

I'm hoping to preorder a couple of boxes but yes, they will probably sell out quickly.

Buy a bunch and sell them. Although with my luck I'd do that and the autograph would be from Jake Hager.

That's the fear I have with some of the big WWE products. They have one called Transcendent which costs over US$10k a box. Cherry are doing a break for it where you get one card for AU$300 and if I buy a spot I would be worried about getting Nia or Tamina.

You can get this card, which you can hang above your bed to help you get to sleep.

I want that card!

Just looked on ebay, there's one on there for over $2k.

I'm not gonna get that card!

Leaf Art Of Sport will be out later this year and will feature this card:

Thunderlips!

They look good.

None of the card stores in Australia are doing pre-orders for them, which sucks. Cherry have done a preview article for it but that's about it. I think Upper Deck are supposed to be fairly strict with their rules, so are hard to deal with.

Yea that'll be an issue here too. If they are easily available and at a good price I might be interested in getting some. This article has some details on the first set

Quite a few of the preview cards (they seem to be from NY Comic Con) are up on eBay. It has images from the back of the cards in the previews too. They look like proofs with them all joined together so I assumed they just handed them out as a promotional item.

I just bought into a Topps WWE Chrome 21 break at Cherry and got a Booker T auto. Very nice!

The other main cards I got were a numbered Karrion Kross gold card and a Liv Morgan refractor.

I always do pretty well in wrestling breaks. In basketball breaks I never get anything good.

Was it costly to buy into?

It was $20 per pack because you also had a chance of winning a spot in the WWE Transcendent break, which is $300 per spot.

You can just buy a box (which I'll be doing) for $200 + postage or at $10 a pack.

I was hoping to get that Transcendent spot but I'm very happy with what I got, so it was worth it.

I really want to buy more cards but I just bought a new house and spent about $20k on furniture and things around the house :olol: I think next pay I might look at getting it. Or see if my gf will buy me a box for my bday in 2 weeks

They have Afterpay if you want to spread the payments out. Which is what I normally do.

I've got 3 other WWE box pre-orders at the moment: Finest, Women's Division and the normal "WWE" one.

Still no AEW pre-orders in Australia from what I can see. I've seen some OS ones on ebay but they were pricey due to shipping.
