I am really undecided on how to tackle this release. Normally I would get all Raiders for the PC (sometimes multiples of the one card) and complete a base and a couple of lower end insert sets.

I initially planned to buy a case, go in random breaks and then get newsagent packs here and there. It makes much more sense to buy from the secondary market financially,but that is half the fun and cuts out trades which to me, is the essence of the hobby.
If you do decide to get two of the same cards can you please loan them to me for a week or two so I can at least hold them as I think that will be the only way I’ll get to touch any of them these days with all the new blow in Raiders collectors now pushing up prices and making it almost impossible get 😢 lol
Think I might have to start collecting virtual Raiders cards from now on for my PC 🤪

Any hints on which teams are getting an RTF instead of spotlight? Or are some teams getting no patch at all and some team/s from last year are doubling up?
Hang on a minute........what do you mean about this road to the finals patch instead of spotlight patch and patch sigs?

They will drop off soon, once things get back to normality, and they stop winning.

I have a feeling there will be 8 of them, likely the teams that missed out last year but the booklets will be split across the 2 themes.
So you’re saying... all 8 teams who didn’t get a spotlight booklet last year get either a spotlight or road to the finals booklet this year.....?

I read it more as 8 teams will get either a booklet sig or just road to the finals patch Sig .. The other 8 teams that didn’t get the booklet last year...

Did he show this at the end? I was watching but I must've missed it or left before he showed it.

If he showed the logo on the base cards then it looks as though they are going for the white design again. That could’ve been some different insert or something. Hoping they don’t redo the white and if they do then hopefully it looks a lot different to 2018 and 2019

I thought he might have got the go ahead to show a few cards by now.

I agree. They are really hiding elite from us until they send out the flyer which as a lot of you have said, isn’t super smart because collectors need to know if they are going to save money up for certain sets or players.

Yeah that Billy image was really helpful. Got me more excited for elite. Just shows that if TLA slowly release little bits leading up to the release, it will get people more excited. I’m sure people will be saving for that billy.
