Fleischer’s Focus: The hobby’s flagship brand has a new look this year, and the secondary market remains as robust as ever — so much so that we were able to gather enough secondary market to provide complete product pricing a week earlier than usual.
Olds’ Opinion: A new look and some surprise inclusions are part of the driving force here, but not certainly not all of it. This product’s size and scope is one that the hobby arguably needs more of. Its popularity speaks volumes and I personally can’t wait to see if we get even more surprises — more First Pitch cards — in Series 2.
