Sets for next year : my view

So with 2007 almost over and the cards and topics of releases already beaten about.

What do you expect to be released for 2008 and is the a suprise release or will brand go missing?

Well Topps are meant to be out in March, so they might be first, followed by Tazos, HS, then TC and Select, then the figurines.. thats my guess..

hs are a much different kind of card. lots of people end up with them that dont even collect cards... imagine someone with a signature who thought. oh, why did i get the one with that scribble on it.. rip it up and chuck it in the bin :shock:

just noticed Select have partially updated their site.... still has the same card of the week it has had since the thing was created :roll: , but they have added some flash of the Select 2008 AFL & NRL release - just looks like the flyer really, but at least its something to tell people the new cards are coming out!

Any news on the Select star figures? Are they in fact hidden in a box due to the limited gold figures as Carlton suggested?Also r they the same size as the prostar ones?

R u saying the Gold ones weigh the same as the standard and they r the same size as the prostar figures except for the base? Wonder if this will increase the value of the Prostar ones.

Yeah, but will they have a card in them like the Prostars? I bought the figurines, opened them, kept the card and flogged off the figurines. :?
