Topps is pre- selling Living Set Card of Ohtani at $ 7.99 each and on ebay it is pre-selling at $ 5.00 with free shipping ?????? How can that be ????? Any explanations appreciated !

There are quantity discounts. If you buy 20+ its about 3.50 per card

I bought the living set card. For 8 bucks I'm willing to go out on a limb.

I am buying the set from the Ebay seller for $5 per card. You pay him monthly and when all the cards for the month are delivered he send them out. I will let you know how it works out.

I think it's a cool concept, and will go with it for awhile. It's less than my weekly coffee budget, understanding that it'll add up over time. I like that it's actually a relatively scarce issue (not one of those serial numbered types) and the cards are gorgeous. We'll see how long I stick with it.

The issue with doing this is that you can get them from Topps directly for $5 per card (if you do the 3 card bundles it is 14.99 with free shipping) and you get topps reward points.

Then if Topps does surprise parallels or Autos like they did with Topps Now in the first year (https://www.cardboardconnection.com/...baseball-cards), then the person making the bulk purchases and reselling them will get to cherry pick these out and you won't get those. Also the last two years for those that buy from Topps through the year they send a special card at the end of the year around Christmas.

So to sum it up you are paying the same price without any topps reward points, without any chance of receiving any parallel cards, and no chance of extra gift cards at year end.

If you only want singles though it doesn't make sense to buy all of them. I only want Ohtani and an Acuna if they make one.

Agreed. If you aren't buying the set, as the OP I quoted said he was doing, then buying singles from Ebayers is the best option.

I understand the rewards part but I get the mailings offering autographed cards and am a top tier rewards guy who gets the free monthly cards as well as other bonus cards through the year. My concern was missing a week or two and just did not need the hassle.
