Topps 582 Montgomery Club Offers Online-Exclusives Throughout the Year
The Topps 582 Montgomery club is a new way for the company to offer some of their online-exclusive baseball cards.
For $199.99, collectors get a variety of sets throughout the year. Six to be exact. These range from small releases that are typical for a lot of online releases to stickers to autographs. There’s even a specially stamped version of the 2019 Topps Baseball set.
In addition to the promised cards from the program, Topps 582 Montgomery members also get exclusive opportunities to buy more cards not available to the general public or website visitors.
Topps 582 Montgomery Club Perks
Enrolling in the Topps 582 Montgomery club means cards throughout the year. Approximately every two months, members will have a package show up in their mailbox with a new set of cards.
Designs look to reflect the company’s roots. While Topps hasn’t released specifics on what these cards are thematically, they do give a general outline for what to expect.
For starters, when you sign up there’s a 20-card set along with an autograph.
Two additional 20-card sets will arrive in the months ahead as well as a set of 20 stickers. These stickers are sized like traditional cards measuring 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
Another mini set is also part of the lineup, although this one has another autograph. 582 Montgomery members have a say in the list of signers for this set.
The exclusive card lineup rounds out with a special version of the 2019 Topps Baseball factory set that comes with a 582 Montgomery stamp to differentiate it from the regular versions.
2018 Brooklyn Collection
The 2018 Topps Brooklyn Collection is a set of online-only baseball cards sold through the company’s website. And if you don’t sign up for the 582 Montgomery Club, you won’t have a chance to buy them direct.
According to Topps, this is the most high-end online release they’ve done. Boxes, which come with five on-card autographs, cost $1,000.
Those who sign up for the Topps 582 Montgomery club first also get first crack at renewal next year before it’s open to the general public.
Why 582 Montgomery?
The club is a nod to the company’s origins as a chewing gum company.
582 Montgomery St. in Brooklyn is where Topps began. In those earliest days, company co-founder Philip Shorin operated from his home.
Before long, though, they had outgrown the small space and moved into a larger facility.
