Set of the Month

1977 Topps Cloth Stickers is a 55-"card" set released as a test issue. The design on the front of the card (which features a velvet-like sheen) is virtually identical to the player's 1977 Topps card -- with some exceptions. The back of each card features information on how to peel the sticker. Eleven of the 55 stickers are short-printed.

Each pack contained two cloth stickers and one of eighteen puzzle cards. The fronts of the puzzle cards have checklist information while the backs a piece of one of two 3X3 mosaics that, when assembled, create the 1976 American and National League All-Star team pictures.

Just Released

2018 Topps Five Star was released October 17th. All cards are autographed, and each box will contain two.

2018 Topps Gold Label is a 300-card set released October 12th. As with the Gold Label sets of the late-90s, the set features 100 different players on three different "Class" cards: 1, 2, and 3. Unfortunately, the holo-foil plastic cardstock the brand was known for in the 90s was not used -- regular paper stock was used instead.

Each box will yield one Framed Autograph.

New for 2018 are Relics and Framed Autographed Relics.

2018 Panini Contenders Draft Picks is a 50-card set focusing on prospects and draft picks, released October 5th. Most players are depicted in their college uniforms, and is licensed by The Collegiate Licensing Company.

The product does NOT have any active Major League players and as such, is not licensed by the MLB Players Association (even though Panini does have an MLBPA license).

Each pack contains an autograph.

2018 Bowman High Tek is a 56-card set released September 12th. All cards are printed on acetate with multiple background variations. Unlike the the previous year's product, a small selection of "true" rookie cards are included -- however, curiously, some players eligible to be RCs (e.g. Ronald Acuna, Jr. and Gleyber Torres) are still Prospects. Each ten-card box will yield four autographs and a parallel.

2018 Topps Luminaries was released September 7th. Each box contains one card, an autograph serial-numbered to 15 copies or fewer.
