1:1 Holofoil (36 per box)
1:3 Camo Starburst (12 per box)
1:4 Gamebreakers (9 per box)
1:6 Club Acetate (6 per box)
1:8 Milestone (4 per box)
1:12 Competition (3 per box)

34 inserts which leaves a 1:36 type card to replace Fireworks and then the Lightning Starburst, Brownlow and Premiership Predictors to fill the last card

Showstopper was a floating 1:864 hit so I guess we will see something similar again this year

90 Gamebreakers in the set, these must be very common, could they be 1:6 packs replacing the blue ice cards?

Cards look really good.

As per Select, 1:4.

Still 3 more reveals - firework replacement, showstopper replacement and ??? A new insert maybe? Or the starter pack card?

This set has been great so far

There is talk they have scrapped the silver Premiership Predictor which would make the predictors a 1:432 case hit. This would make sense since there are four different Richmond Premiership sets floating around for 2020 which is complete overkill

Case breakdown could look something like
Lightning Starburst (6) 1:72
Brownlow Predictor (4) 1:108
Premiership Predictor (1) 1:432
? (1) 1:432

With another 1:864 Showstopper replacement as a floating hit one every two cases similar to last year

Select have confirmed this ratio on Facebook - one PP and 4 BPs per case.

So last three previews are likely to be a 1:36 box hit and two absolutely huge hits

Guessing they'll throw starter pack insert in at some point as well

Is it too early to talk about Select's first release of what will likely be the biggest year the AFL hobby has ever seen?

If we consider that the AFL hobby blew up around the release of Prestige I feel like we are now in unchartered territory when it comes to a series one release

What are people's early thoughts? I expect demand for cards early to be insane with first day/week prices pushing up to new highs on what I suspect will be standard series one fare like gold predictors and numbered Starbursts

Should we expect anything new or different from series one this year? And just how closely will Prestige (or the 2021 equivalent) follow on the heels of Footy Stars this time round?
I wish they would would bring back Future Force. That was a great product imo.

Pre-sale is on Cherry right now, not sure if they sold out though.

Feb 21st is the Select release.
Cherry sold out within 15 mins. Not sure what allocation they had, but they did specifically mention that they won't be selling cases and will be limiting purchases of boxes to 2 per household. Also mentioned voiding any purchases of people who purchased more than the allotment.

This seems in line with Select. Maybe they've restricted sales like they did with Brilliance and will continue into this year's releases.

Cherry probably won’t put up many boxes as they won’t make much money, breaks is where they will make there $$$
