Mickey Mantle is arguably not a top 10 baseball player of all time. There are certainly better players than him. And yet, his card is iconic and much more expensive than other cards of better players.
I don't know anything about anything when it comes to modern stuff but I was curious on this so took a look. It seems the autographs are on stickers, not on the card, and they've downgraded the patch cards from "Game Used" to "Player Worn". Not great Bob! The cards look pretty cool though...Jeez. Topps Inception is like $140 retail a box for seven cards with one auto. I swear it was a lot cheaper even last year. but maybe my memory is faulty. The auto checklist does have some great names on it and the cards look great, but it's a big boom/bust box this time. That's kinda disappointing.
I did throw one of the Heritage blasters in with a Target order I was gonna do today anyway. At this point I can't rely on just grabbing a pack at Target to scratch the itch so feels like it could be fun.
Thanks -- grabbed a couple (free shipping). Never see any stock when I go to the store.2021 Topps Heritage is currently in stock at Target.com for anyone who is looking for boxes at non-eBay prices:
Yes thank you! Was looking for some with the kids last week and struck out. Grabbed a few just now.2021 Topps Heritage is currently in stock at Target.com for anyone who is looking for boxes at non-eBay prices:
You're 100% right, but Target already sold out. Resale prices won't be as crazy on these, but it was nice to see something at MSRP for once for sure.Considering the current market, Heritage is a hobby product that isn’t insanely priced.
im guessing it hasn’t experience the same inflation since it’s a product that’s never been about the big hit and has been geared toward set collectors.
megas sold out. Was able to get 3 blasters2021 Donruss blasters and megas in stock at Target.com
I opened a box of Donruss over the weekend, and it was a lot of fun. Wish the cards were MLB licensed. The lack of logos really takes away from the cards. They've got some goofy insert designs, but that's part of the fun. When you hit on a "Big Sexy" Bartolo Colon name variation, it's actually kind of cool.
Thanks a bunch. Unfortunately shipping kills the deal for the value. Requires a Topps account too.Anyone looking for more 2021 Topps Heritage, you can buy one hobby box and one value box on Topps.com right now:
Yep, gorgeous cards but don't hold their value and it's super hit or miss based on the autograph you get which is always tough. Granted half the fun of this is just ripping packs and trading 150+ to open one pack with one hit is just not viscerally appealing. Like you get a hit great, but then you see a box where the signature is Daniel Johnson (Orange went for $29 on Ebay) and you just lost a hundred and change for 30 seconds of fun.They don’t hold their value?
Yeah, it's free. The $100 box is too rich for my blood, it's also $7 on the $20. (you can't get 2 $20's and the other cheap boxes are s/o)
Yeah if you have plural kids, and either are getting the CTC or make too much to qualify for the CTC, this is a no-brainer, great parent, idea.oh ok. I have been trying to buy my kids some cards since Christmas and have gotten nothing so didn't feel bad about getting the hobby box
