On November 16, 2021 current members had the opportunity to renew their membership for 2022 for $300. New members had to pay $600.

In 2021 club members received some great deals on online-exclusive products such as 2020 Topps Chrome Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire Edition, 2019/20 Topps Chrome UEFA Champions League Sapphire Edition, and 2020 Topps Chrome Formula 1 Sapphire Edition. With a bunch more in between.

I see print runs and price increases for 2022. If Topps decides to bring back some of those products which people were able to flip for big profits on the secondary market last year, I don’t see those same products performing the same way. Topps will look at what last year’s boxes are currently selling for, and price the next round of products based on that. The next Topps Chrome Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire Edition won’t be $50 per box. The next Topps Chrome Formula 1 Sapphire Edition won’t be $99 per box. Prices will go up, and the profit margin to flip them will be down.

Topps could surprise us with some products that haven’t received the Sapphire treatment yet. Star Wars and WWE Sapphire Editions would be huge hits. That’s saying Topps can get the WWE Sapphire Edition out before Panini takes over the license.

The 2022 MLB rookie class is shaping up nicely. Wander Franco is leading the pack and will receive his first rookie card logo cards. Some other prospects have a chance of getting called up too. Product will be in demand. Maybe not as much as 2020 and 2021 due to inflation/lack of stimulus checks, but I renewed my membership so I can easily access the online-exclusive products.

After 2022 things will get interesting now that Fanatics plans to take over the card industry.

Yankees ’21 Topps Stadium Club Chrome Auto Contest Winner Announced

Under The Tree: 1992 JusToys NFL Quarterback Club Bend-Ems

It might be easier to list the properties JusToys didn’t make bendable action figures for throughout the 90’s and early 2000’s. The list is quite extensive – WWF, WCW, Marvel, Star Wars, Lassie, Free Willy, Universal Monsters, Disney, etc… Doing a quick eBay search will take you down nostalgia lane.

NFL fans got to see four of the most popular quarterbacks in 1992 receive the “Bend-Ems” treatment – Jim Kelly, Dan Marino, John Elway, and Randall Cunningham.

Figures could be purchased in two different ways. Individually or in a gift set.

JusToys Bend-Ems were relatively inexpensive when they were originally released, and for the most part still remain cheap today. Although there are a few exceptions.

Bendable wire and rubber are the only two components to this toy line. It doesn’t get much simpler than that. Football collectors can easily add them to their collection without difficulty.

They all look like they were hit with Joker’s laughing gas.

2021 Topps Stadium Club Chrome Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Collector Type: Set/Chrome Fans/Autograph/Photography Fans

The base set comes in at a whopping (400) cards. Parallels include Refractor (1:4), Gold #’ed/50, Orange #’ed/25, Wave (1:112), Red #’ed/5, and SuperFractor #’ed 1/1.

(25) players have 1991 Topps Stadium Club Design Variations. CMP codes can be used to identify them. Base end in #783. 1991 Topps Stadium Club Design Variations end in #841. They fall (1:4) packs. Given that the variations use the classic Topps Stadium Club logo on the front picking them out should be quite easy. Variation parallels include Wave, Gold #’ed/50, Orange #’ed/25, Red #’ed/5, and SuperFractor #’ed 1/1.

Autographs include Base Autographs, 1991 Stadium Club Design Variation Autographs, Beam Team Autographs, and Lone Star Signatures.

Inserts include Beam Team, Crystal Ball, and Virtual Reality.

A single hobby box should have (14) packs with an insert or parallel per pack. (1) on-card autograph per box.

Like peanut butter & jelly, Bert & Ernie, and Sonny & Cher, Stadium Club and Chrome just belong together. The Chrome stock and incredible photographs make for an enjoyable box break. It doesn’t matter if you pull a big hit or not. That’s the best thing about both Stadium Club and Stadium Club Chrome.

Between the on-card autographs, photography, Chrome stock, and price, I would vote Stadium Club and/or Stadium Club Chrome for product of the year. You’re guaranteed a TON of nice looking cards to add to your collection. It appeals to so many collectors.
