      @Ryan – It’s priced online so I’m guessing it should be in the next issue.

    • Ryan Cracknell 1 April, 2019 at 17:46

      @cam – It hasn’t been announced yet, but it’ll likely be similar to last year (assuming it’s returning).

  1. Veronica 2 October, 2019 at 21:51

    Hey! Any word on 2019 Topps MLB Gallery? I know it is the Walmart exclusive and it was released in November last year. I can’t seem to find anything about it as of this date.

    • Ryan Cracknell 8 October, 2019 at 09:49

      @Veronica – When it’s announced, it’ll be added. Pretty safe bet, though, as there were Preview inserts elsewhere this year.

    • Ryan Cracknell 17 October, 2019 at 21:39

      @dorianhood – You can find card boxes and sets at hobby shops and several online retailers as well.

  2. Dave 23 January, 2020 at 16:11

    Hi Ryan,

    Any ideas on when 2019-20 National Treasures and 2019-20 Flawless basketball will be released in 2020? Thanks in advance!

    Dave

    • Ryan Cracknell 23 January, 2020 at 22:32

      @Dave – Details and dates haven’t been announced yet. Likely to be similar to last year, would be my guess. We’ll add them here as soon as they’re announced.

  3. David 4 February, 2020 at 15:32

    Any idea why the Upper Deck Avengers Endgame/ Captain Marvel cards got pushed to end of February from January?

    • Ryan Cracknell 7 February, 2020 at 12:10

      @David – Delays are pretty normal for a lot of entertainment sets. Lots of levels of approval, autograph collection, etc.

  4. Sean M Click 17 February, 2020 at 13:16

    Hi Ryan,

    I left a reply earlier that seems to have disappeared (so I apologize if this is a duplicate). But I had asked about Topps MLS 2020. I don’t see any information about it anywhere; does that mean it’s not happening? Any information is appreciated. And if Topps isn’t doing it, is anyone else? Thanks!

    • Ryan Cracknell 20 February, 2020 at 22:15

      @Sean – Nothing has been announced. It looks like there was a Topps Now card from the end of January. Not sure if that hints at anything further.

  5. David 19 February, 2020 at 14:06

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks to answer about marvel Endgame cards. It does have the best looking auto inserts to date. Now it’s gone from February to March 18 2020. I hope it doesn’t change again. really want these cards!

  6. Tracy 25 May, 2020 at 08:02

    How do you know which retail store products will be released at? For ex: the 19-20 panini mosaic basketball blasters. I wasn’t aware blaster boxes were going to be sold at Target. I’m new to collecting.
