2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club – Set #2

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club have received set #2 of their 2022 membership.

The set consists of (20) cards. No Wander Franco rookie card in this one. In fact, no rookies at all. Rest assured one of these sets will have a rookie card of him. Members get to vote as to who they want to see in the final set of the year. I’m sure Wander Franco will receive enough votes to get a rookie card in there.

  • Aaron Judge #1
  • Juan Soto #2
  • Mookie Betts #3
  • Xander Bogaerts #4
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. #5
  • Nolan Arenado #6
  • Ronald Acuña Jr. #7
  • Cody Bellinger #8
  • Bryce Harper #9
  • Jacob deGrom #10
  • Ken Griffey Jr. #11
  • Randy Johnson #12
  • Randy Arozarena #13
  • Joey Votto #14
  • Jazz Chisholm #15
  • Dave Winfield #16
  • Christian Yelich #17
  • Salvador Perez #18
  • Willie Mays #19
  • Nolan Ryan #20

Nice design. It reminds me of 1992 Topps Baseball.

According to Topps, 2021 Bowman Heritage Baseball has been delayed indefinitely. Club members were originally suppose to order it on 1/4/22. Then it was pushed back to 1/11/22. It never went on sale. Who knows if we’ll ever see it.

2022 Topps Series 1 Baseball was released on 2/16/22. Montgomery Club members were given the chance to purchase a box of 2022 Topps Series 1 Baseball 1st Edition a day earlier. This was a complete surprise. I didn’t find out about it until nine hours after it was listed for sale. Luckily I was able to snag one for $350. At the time I purchased my box very little was known about it. All we knew was that the set consisted of (330) cards featuring the 1st Edition logo, and autographs were randomly inserted.

During the 2022 Topps Rip Party in Los Angeles some 1st Edition packs were floating around. It didn’t take long before the odds printed on the pack backs began to surface online. Doing some quick calculations it was determined only 7,400 1st Edition boxes have been produced. That’s not a lot. Boxes are also loaded with parallels too. You aren’t guaranteed an autograph in every box, but the autograph checklist is strong including Wander Franco. Autographs have parallels as well.

I’ve come to the conclusion whenever Topps offers a product that is a new variation of a popular brand, just buy it. Don’t even think about it. Upon finding out how limited it is boxes sold out quickly. The general public never even had an opportunity to buy it directly from Topps. Prices have soared on the secondary market.

A checklist has been posted on the Topps website for 2022 Topps UEFA Champions League 1st Edition. No word yet if this will be something Montgomery Club members will get first access to or not.
