Not too bad

#ed to 80, top 3 vote getters for each club and 1:48 packs

It's a nice design, but top 3 Brownlow for each club seems a little arbitrary. Martin and Miller for example received just the 5 Brownlow votes and others just 6 or 7, which isn't really worthy of celebrating. I'd have preferred to have seen top 3 B&F place getters instead; at least that would mean something.

Can we just stick to talking about 2020 Footy Stars Prestige? You can agree/disagree on the product itself, but can we move everything else to another page or thread? I'm excited about this new release, and it's okay if you're not. I just hope we can stick to discussion on the product
Totally agree. Trying to sort through all the comments and find the ones that were actually about the upcoming set was a pain.

Personally I’m loving what I have seen so far, the people complaining about the different parallel have probably never had anything to do with NBA, it will grow on them for sure, any new release I look for value for money series 1 didn’t have it as if you hit a box with a die cut and starburst well you couldn’t get near making your money back, but this release I see nothing but value and still have 2 previews to come

I absolutely hate the NBA system of having numerous styles of the one card and one of the few reasons I refuse to get into collecting it.

I'm a team collector and the idea of having to collect ten versions of the same card is repulsive to me as it seems nothing other then a lazy cash grab.

There was a reason why there was a bubble in the 90s and why some people think we are in the middle of one now.

While I'm not too fussed by this series, I'm worried what might entail next year and the year after. Are we going to see even more saturation?

So we will get the lowdown on the Platinum predictors tomorrow and the Showstoppers will be previewed Wednesday. No mention or confirmation they're gold anywhere I've seen yet.

Not sure how I feel about every second Platinum seemingly being a wildcard. I'm keen to hear others thoughts what it might mean for the value of those cards.

It's amazing isn't it..... there are so many people out there scared to actually say how they really feel because they know that any dissenting views get shut down immediately (except here).

You see it here in the AFL threads....... anyone who doesn't state the company line gets told they are a hater and doesn't have a life. :p

I mean even look at the FB comments I posted above..... most of these have now been deleted...... if you control what people are saying everyone only ever sees one side of the story and any dissenting comments seem odd and out of place?

My greatest concern is the conflict of interest about the whole thing. You have an employee who works at a card company who also then breaks the the companies product for people making money off it.

I pointed this out in the Supremacy thread...... it was amazing how the one big card in the release (very limited) just happened to fall out of only the 3rd case broken by an employee of the company that's making the cards?

Now I am not saying anything wrong happened here, maybe someone got very lucky..... who knows.

But I think people are starting to wise up to this now...... and i'm sure there will be some inspirational FB post made shortly to boost someones ego!
No coincidence there just like all the showstoppers coming out in the breaks. They should have paid better attention to the photo of SW with the cases that had cases marked as “breaks”
Don’t even get me started on supremacy and that whole backyard operation

Wow....... who would have thought that could potentially happen? I mean how would he know there are specific cards in a case?

You know you will be called a no life loser now you dare to speak out about his holiness? The minions will be after you in no time!

That's just the tip of the iceberg as far as I am aware! I mean if there are any excess boxes left over for this release they could always be taken down and sold off to the local newsagents for cash?

Or it sells out and he takes boxes intended for breaks to the markets and sells them for double the price making a quick few k

Man if only you knew half the dodgy s*** that has happened and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Imagine the stuff we don’t know about
Oh I know a heap of it...... its funny those closest are THE biggest critics but wont say a word as they have to play along for their own self interest!

It's like having to be nice to the TAXMAN..... you have to be friends with him or you get thrown on the SEVERE audit pile!

I think they may do it like the top 35 contenders + 1 wildcard. Credit to someone on Facebook as this would make sense. Would be sweet to only see the top players except for pulling a play brownlow and getting a Gold Coast wildcard 🤦‍♂️

Unfortunately not

Gonna be a lot of fizzer Platinum pulls, it's taken a little bit of lustre off the set for me
