2020 Topps 582 Montgomery Club – Set #3 – BIG SURPRISE!

The third set of my 2020 Topps 582 Montgomery Club membership arrived in the mail, and it came with a welcomed surprise.  Along with the 20-card set, I received a rookie autograph of A.L. Rookie of the Year Yordan Alvarez of the Houston Astros.  I wasn’t expecting another autograph until the end of the year.

Set #3 is designed after the 1969 Topps Team Posters Test Issue.  Measuring 11.25″ x 19.75″, the 1969 Topps Team Posters Test Issue is one of the largest vintage items that Topps has ever produced.  Each poster comes with nine or ten players pictured on it.  Finding them in good condition can be quite difficult.  In order to fit into the packaging, they needed to be folded multiple times.  It was also common for people to pin/tape them to a wall.  Doing that would certainly cause some condition issues.

A variety of colors quickly catches your eye with this third installment.  Printed on vintage stock, these colors go all the way to the edges.  Very eye appealing.

(3) 2020 Topps Series 1 Baseball Jumbo Pack Break

Today I took a trip to my local card shop – Sports Zone Toys & Comics.  Its a really nice shop.  Easy to get around and very well organized.  The main reason I went was to pickup a few plastic containers used for storing cards.  I left the shop with some containers, Bryce Harper bobblehead, Phillie Phanatic Super7 action figure, and (3) jumbo packs of 2020 Topps Series 1 Baseball.

Here are the results from the (3) jumbo packs.  It was a newly opened box with only a couple of packs purchased from it.  The store’s owner said no hits had been pulled yet.  FedEx just dropped off a 2020 Topps Series 1 Baseball hobby box which I’ll be working on next.

Sports Zone Toys & Comics is quite active on Facebook and YouTube.  Check them out!
