Seeing this on eBay...
Probably one of the best original artwork 1/1 from this product already pulled...

I also like these canvas parallels (I think that’s what they are called).
The gradation of wood looking part to the artwork looks neat.

Missed the chance to buy boxes at Topps.com, but I couldn’t spend too much after buying into the 582 Montgomery Club.

Does anyone have the odds for the $70 box by chance?

It was 1:41 boxes or something like that last year, so while I don't exactly know how many original artwork are in the product itself this year compared to last year, it seems like Topps produced way more more of this product this year.

Good catch there as I missed the per box note. Thanks.

Just to get technical, there's no "green private issue" parallel. The only parallels are private issue, green, blue, orange, and red. You can consolidate that on the tables.

That makes sense now as they are listed differently on the blasters and boxes, so I was a bit confused.

Unfortunately, the hideous gold lettering for the player names destroys the look of the cards. The artwork is terrific.

Ignoring my better judgment, I bought a blaster and 2 hangers of this today-guess I was bored. I agree, the gold lettering ruins the look of the cards. Some of the art work is very good, some not good at all. I do think the quality of the card stock seems a little better than last years but still has a cheap overall appearance to me overall, should have listened to myself and saved $30.
I did get an auto, a blue framed Jose Berrios # 38/50 -which I think looks pretty nice actually, the gold lettering doesn't look as tacky against it-and a Soto and Acuna base.
