Can someone explain the Flip stock variations?

The back is glossy and the front is not, hence the name flip stock. Think mullet

I think it may also be the fact that people are getting sick of Topps creating endless variations simply for the sake of having variations....kinda like the gum stain variations last year never took off.

Front variations, like the throwbacks and actions, which feature different player images, are always going to be more popular than variations which are purely cosmetic.

people are sell action sp for Trout, Bryant, RC BELOW what last year's still sold for, makes no sense

last year terapeak shows the real data
but those without the history don't realize I guess

base SP of some guys like KB are outselling his action at times, haha
Also gotta remember than many people aren't as serious about making money off their cases as some of the big breakers are, so they are not trying to maximize their returns to the extent the people for whom breaking is a business are.

I am not a fan of the dirty grey back on yellow or even the bright yellow back. I just wish it was a different color entirely and only one color /10 rather than having a /25 version as well. That said I don't think I'll be buying one this year.

Waited it out and chased down a case to be ripped at regular price. Shouldn't have. The big hit was a correa red ink. After that it was posey poster. 2 flip stocks, 3 swaps and 2 blue Refs.

I have another 96 sp's and inserts to sell to a breaker if interested.

Just finished busting a case and I can see why some people aren't happy about the SP increase. I didn't pull 11 of the SPs but yet I have dupes for 8 of them.

I also managed to pull 5 Joe Musgrove rookie SPs but only 1 of Swanson, Benintendi, Judge, Reyes, and 0 of Bregman. Although I wouldn't complain if it was 5 Benintendi's

Talking One Box

So I decided to buy one hobby box of 17 (from Amazon) because I felt the hype was real... I kept my hopes in check knowing that one box was a long shot for some fire. Well I think I was wrong.... Today was my lucky day for sure!!!

To start it was a hot box so I pumped. Pulled purple Trout, Harper, Posey etc. The normal chrome's I pulled was a Machado to 999 and Turner to 568.

Now for the real meat of the box!

Bregman Auto


Seager Error


Hosmer Color


Bum Action


Giants Team Yellow (AND the Giants are my team!)

gum stain were around a couple years
but I get what you are saying
although I did sell the top guys gum stains for $75-$100 and sold commons in lots for $3 typically after piecing off singles
I liked them b/c they were different and smelled good

the blues, whcih basically replaced gums, are not doing bad, but my gum back stain cards actually sold much better for the stars

Thanks. I'm going for the action set now!

Anyone know the print run on the action variations, seems like they are at least 1 per box.

100%....I just love to break and then keep what I love in my PC. Not in it to hold on and try to maximize down the road. I'll make a few hundred, buy vintage and then off to the next release. I don't want to hold onto inventory....but I do understand the other side of it.

Anyone else notice that all sps that came in the purple hot box were duplicate sps? I opened two cases, one from my LCS direct from topps and one from BO. This was the same in both. It's almost as if the purple hot boxes were forgotten and added to the cases later, causing collation issues.

Dang. My 4 additional boxes of Heritage arrive today with a Nintendo Switch/Zelda being delivered within the same hour.

And I just bought 5 blasters, 5 hangers, and a dozen retail packs.

Which to dive into first?.............

Hit the bin on a $8 Trout Color Swap from a very unreliable ebayer. Expecting problems, but if it actually shows up then great. If not, money back.
