Big shock… No Kiermaier chrome card. Heck, not even a single chrome card of a Rays player. No thank you Topps.
I’m still trying to finish the Gold refractor parallel set from 2013, but I will definitely be buying these and putting together some Chrome sets.
Another kick in the pants for brick and mortar stores. Now I can send my customers to Target to try to complete their Topps Chrome sets. This along with Panini’s Donruss Factory sets with ALL Of the short prints does nothing but irritate the customers who built their sets from boxes purchased in my store.
Gary Mills: Judging by just how well the Megaboxes sold last year, I don’t think your Brick & Mortar Hobby store has anything to worry about.
Yep, another slap in the face for us hobby shop owners. Thanks for nothing Topps.
Topps and other companies do a hell of a lot more hobby-only stuff than they do retail-only stuff. I don’t hear the owners of Target or Wal-Mart complaining about that. I respect hobby store owners, but you should realize that just because you decided to open a store doesn’t mean everyone has to cater to your wants. Retail products help get people into the hobby, which is good for everyone. Hobby shops are a good place to go for collectors, but they shouldn’t have to be the ONLY place to go.
People are complaining about retail shops getting exclusives? Some of us don’t have an LCS within 10-20 miles and typically have to rely on eBay and other online stores. When you factor in what a lot of people charge for shipping, you’re overpaying for your box. No thanks.
This stuff is a home run this year. I’ve been unable to find boxes at target it Walmart.
There are no boxes for sale on eBay or even packs and sets are already selling close to $70
I guess topps cut the print run
