Assume you’re talking about the Brownlow vote getters card?
Yeah, no doubt people will claim its because "he got the votes while in Geelong colours" but Geelong collectors wont want it because he isnt there anymore and Eagles collectors won't want it either as he isn't in our colours.

Also the cases are loaded exact same, mate has opened two cases and they were all the exact same cards...same Showstopper, same Brownlows and so on.

Well can’t say I agree with the ‘lazy’ part of your comment but happens every year with milestones and is just the nature of the subset..

Select said they would try and get boxes to people by release date tomorrow. Maybe they should have sent them yesterday and not today. If express post turns up overnight I’d be very surprised. Then it’s a long weekend of waiting lol

Should of started sending them to Perth last week to arrive by tomorrow, Just Cards don't seem confident about them arriving tomorrow.

As far as I know Select sent them out on the usual schedule and didn't factor in Aus post being gutter trash at the moment.

I sent something yesterday express post and it arrived in under 20 hours. Volumes have dropped a little so hopefully we have them tomorrow.

i was told that things at aust post are still high, but have started to level out now and parcels are arriving more on time now. you'll be ripping with the rest of us!

As a Star Wars collector I've been turned off coloured parallels as over the last few years this has been an overkill in these releases. Though let me just say the Red and Green parallels for Prestige look fantastic in hand...big fan. The other card I very much like (and to me has a slight nostalgic feel) is the Brownlow Vote Getters. For some reason the up close shot and the gold metalic frame remind me of the 2005 Tradition release and particualrly the medal cards...which I'm a huge fan of.

Only insert which is just ok are the foil Milestone...I still prefer the original milestone cards.

Having said all this, I think this is a great release and even more so based on the price & potential box value.

agree.. the green and red parallels look awesome in hand
love the low numbering on the green as well, can hold its value in coming years

Unfortunately I don't have the patience and the dollars...but putting together a Green parallel and a BVG set will be something special.

yep, a full set would be sweet. Your already off to a flyer by knocking off the dusty show stopper.
the vote getters of dusty/houli/prestia are on my hit list

I have been birthday surprised with a case that I'm sharing with the kids!!

I agree the cards in hand are beautiful... I really love the greens. Also I think even the zebras look good :) Agree the only average card is Milestones..

Managed 3 #001's and a super nice Showstopper. Plus many more nice hits. I think there is so much value in these at just $140.

I will post a thread later today with the hits :)

Good luck everyone!

Alternatively can someone tell me who the platinum BP is for GWS besides wild card and other GWS players apart from commons and paras?
