Cool isn't it !
It's not fair though is it when resellers who live closer to the distributor get their cards a few days earlier than us who live in WA? The same guys who do most pre sales will still get their cards before everyone else I reckon.
I'll agree witht
I'll agree with that. Maybe select should put some sort of ban on them for pre selling.
Yeah it's a bit annoying personally when I see other guys with their cards organised, photographed and listed on morning of release date whilst my cases are still in the back of a Startrack van somewhere hoping they get to the local shop by the end of the day on release date.
Wishful thinking example
Thursday ship to WA, NT, TAS
Monday ship to SA, ACT
Tuesday ship to VIC, NSW
All cards arrive at national resellers on Wednesday
Release date Thursday, cards available when shop opens on release date
Got my Ps and Bs mixed up.
It is indeed Gibbs for Carlton, and not Cripps.
Also Hurley confirmed for Essendon.
3rd of August release
No Promo cards or flyer is being released for this release
No flyer, Very odd for a select release. Hopefully there is some sort of email or facebook post prior to the release with details
Sounds very strange as I know a flyer was created.......

Very funny as I happened to be speaking to the bloke who was working on it (and had done so some time ago)......
I reckon no flier as cards have changed due to essendon situation and didnt have tome to make a new checklist!! But aurely a checklist will need to be released somewhere or how do we know what cards we are collecting lol
Maybe due to case cards changing?
The 1st five or so cards will have a complete check list of what was released or not released as the case may be.
If somebody didn't sign or had to be changed, then I don't think they had time to change them. So the checklist cards this year may actually be error cards !
Smells more like a cock up to me than pre sales given what's been said on here. I doubt it's the case cards on the flier, I don't think they were on last years flier either.
Checklist will be released a week after the release date so resellers can't pre list & sell before release date as they wont know what is in release & ratios. There will be a Flyer released about a week before release date but most inserts will be blacked out to prevent presales on Ebay.
It makes more sense to be the pre sales, given that no body can actually come up with a more feasible reason.
Somebody at Essendon signing or not signing didn't slow down there release as much as some people believe.
As for the case card issue, if they already had several ready to go then that isn't the reason.
If Dr Grange is right & I believe he is. Select have done this because of pre sales.
Yep it's all about the presales
If the first preview is a week before release how many customers will pay for cases before knowing what's in them?
Everyone will be after the Guernsey cards & Guernsey Signature cards as this release will have the most popular teams.
