Whether one can afford it or not, the $500-per-pack 2012 Five Star baseball card set from Topps is getting broken.
In roughly 24 hours since its early arrival on the eBay auction block, there are nearly 2,000 lots on the site and counting along with another 700-plus completeds for the product as a whole. When you consider how few cards are in a box, that’s a lot of boxes ripped … on Day 1 of release. (Click here for a Five Star checklist and OPG.)
Here’s a gallery of some cards that stood out from those available on the auction block … so far.
