Forgive my ignorance.. but if you’re not an AFL Collector and you clearly don’t like select then I’m struggling to see why you’d have any interest in this whole thread?
There’s a significant difference between voicing an opinion and crapping on everything that is announced and then laughing at everyone else’s opinions.
As we’ve established.. each individual is capable of deciding whether to buy or not to buy any particular product. Let’s leave it at that
So the old "You're not an AFL collector" comes out.......does that mean I can't have a comment about it?

So that means If I go buy a pack of Footy Cards today that then allows me to now have an opinion on the matter?

As I said above, just because I or many others don't like a product, doesn't mean you cant think its the greatest ever product made. If thats your opinion great guy buy 10 cases of it and enjoy it?

Having differing opinions is perfectly fine!

Can't complain about numbered cards per box, probably a total of 9.
2 milestones
4 reds
1 green
1 engine room
plus either a vote getters, a 2nd green or one of remaining 2 preview cards
correct...and I am in for 2 box's
and cant wait to break those bad boys open..

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

absolute bang for buck in this set
Yeah sure maybe every card isn't ones cup of tea, but what Select are putting out these days s***s all over what they were doing back in 2014

16 cards numberd to 60 in a case....really if you hit the right players potentially money back in those alone!!
I think this is the key point in the whole thing.

In 2014, all the talk was about how poor the releases were and how the hobby was dying if not dead. I had a grand total of 4 non-base Eagles cards to chase in Series 2, and Champions was decidedly uninspiring.

I don’t think anyone could say with a straight face that the releases in the last 12 months haven’t been a million miles away (in the positive direction) from what we got in 2014. Not everything has been perfect - I’m not convinced on the different parallels in this series for example. Numbering the milestones doesn’t do a whole lot for me either. On the other hand I do really like the look of the Brownlow Vote Getters in particular, and the Engine Rooms look nice as well.

I think what I’m trying to get at is that there’s a balance, isn’t there. Anybody who says everything Select has done recently has been 100% perfect or absolutely rubbish probably aren’t being completely genuine. Likewise, Facebook groups have their pros and cons - there are some things I’d certainly do differently if I ran one, but there’s no doubting there’s been lots of good come out of it as well.

Overall, I’d definitely much rather be where we are today than where we were six short years ago.

Now are rumours suggesting the last two previews will not be platinum Brownlow predictors nor gold show stoppers as those concepts will be correspondence to those Silver showstoppers and Gold bps in 2021 footy stars?

PS won't be surprised if last two previews are something like:

Sharp shooters /40; 1:72
4 per club
4 leading goal kickers
My team: Cameron, Greene, himmileberg and Toronto

Best and fairest parallel /40; 1:288
Same as album cards this year but numbered with a platinum foil background instead

PPS agree this release is bang for buck and reminds me of NRL 2013 elite (Matt 26 may explain if not firmiliar)

Secondly a great fill in for this apprehension of an era whilst 20 dominance still on the backside

I live a very full fantastic and happy life living rent free in your head!

Now toddle off and go an buy yourself some"Prestige" footy cards like you have been told to do!

Oh by the way these people who posted on the Select FB page have the same thoughts as I do.....they must live a sad life as well!

But here's the thing........Obviously old mate at Select is so hurt and dismayed at these comments he has deleted them off the Select FB post.

They aren't there now! Funny that!

As you can see its a case of if you don't share the same opinion as old Lucas Jericho (which was his second profile user name on his FB group) the same fake profile that used to start off the bidding on the Beyond Blue auctions.... then you don't have an opinion at all.

Maybe he should go back to signing his name on some left over signature cards to boost his ego again!
Dude. Ironic, I think Mr Lucas Jericho is living rent free in your head....
You have spent a lot of time trying to trash every new product that gets released by select.

LOL...... I love this!

Funny this same "Lucas Jericho" had never ever changed their Facebook Profile until it was made public that it was a certain someones second FB account...... bidding up auctions on their own FB page and filling out case shares where there wasn't much interest.

Then by the end of that same day that this second FB profile was out in the public domain "Lucas Jericho" suddenly changed their FB profile picture and mentions of that very noble name suddenly vanished...... like someone had been found out and was trying to hide something?

Long live Lucas Jericho! Forever my hero!
