2018 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Series 2 Oh, The Horror-ible! Hobby Box Break & Review

Now this is a change of pace.  I’ll admit, I have never opened a box of Garbage Pail Kids stickers before.  Why not give it a try?

Garbage Pail Kids have been a pop-culture sensation since they debuted back in 1985.  They’re a parody of those Cabbage Patch Kids dolls that had crazy parents fighting with each other in the malls.  Since then, these parodies have gone on to parody other people, places, and things in pop-culture.  Nothing is off the table when it comes to these little guys and gals poking fun at someone or something.  The artwork is incredibly entertaining to look at, and I love the whole idea about taking something so innocent and making it vile and disgusting.  That’s it’s selling point.  They’re the anti-Cabbage Patch Kids.

Just in time for Halloween, we have 2018 Topps Garbage Pail Kids Series 2 – Oh, The Horror-ible!  If there is any genre that Garbage Pail Kids connect to the strongest, its horror.  These dudes are cute and horrifying all at the same time.

The main set consists of (200) sticker cards.  (100) characters each having an a and b version.  The categories covered include ’80s Horror, ’80s Sci-Fi, Modern Horror, Modern Sci-Fi, Classic Film Monsters, Retro Horror, Retro Sci-Fi, and Folklore Monsters.

Outside of hobby boxes, you have retail options and Collector’s Boxes.  A Collector’s Box is the only place you’re guaranteed a hit.  Hits can be Printing Plates, Manufactured Patches, Artist Autographs, and Sketch Cards.

Parallels:

  • Bruised (1 per Collector’s Box pack)
  • Jelly (1 per Fat Pack)
  • Phlegm (retail)
  • Puke (1 per retail/hobby pack)
  • Spit #’ed/99 (Collector’s Box)
  • Bloody Nose #’ed/75 (Collector’s Box)
  • Fool’s Gold #’ed/50
  • Printing Plates #’ed 1/1

With Halloween right around the corner this made for a fun break.  Very refreshing from what I’m use to opening.  Sketch Cards and Printing Plates seem to be the biggest hits.  Even parallels where the subject matter is a parody of a popular movie or television franchise like Friday The 13th or Halloween get quite the attention.

Here is what I pulled:

2018 Topps Heritage High Number Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Holy smokes!  What a box!  This is by far the best Heritage High Number Baseball box that I’ve opened!!!

The original 1969 Topps Baseball set brings two cards to my mind.  The first is Reggie Jackson’s rookie card #260.  Coming in second would be Mickey Mantle’s final card as an active player #500.  Given that its a vintage set, non-rookies of popular players in mint condition can fetch quite the price.  Its definitely worth a look if you’re wanting to put together a vintage set.

Between HeritageHeritage High Number, and Heritage Minor League Baseball, collectors have gotten their fill of the 1969 Topps Baseball design this year.  In 2019, the 1970 design will be used.  Its going to be interesting how they handle 1971 with all of those black borders.

2018 Topps Heritage High Number picks up right where the regular Heritage set left off.  It consists of (225) cards (#501-#725).  The last (25) cards (#701-#725) are short prints and fall 1:3 packs.  The main set has four parallels – Black Border (50 copies, hobby), 100th Anniversary (25 copies), Magenta Backs (10 copies), Flip Stock (5 copies, hobby).  Of those four, the Flip Stock would be the one that could easily be skipped over.  I pulled one of these in the past and almost missed it.  When it comes to these, the fronts are rough with the backs being smooth.

(50) players have Chrome cards.  Parallels include Hot Box Refractors, Refractors #’ed/569, Black Refractors #’ed/69, Gold Refractors #’ed/5, and Superfractors #’ed 1/1.  (50) players also have mini parallels #’ed/100.

You wouldn’t be wrong to make the observation that many products today feature photo variations.  The ones found in the Heritage lines seem to garner the most attention.  CMP codes can help.

  • Base – #575
  • Short Prints – #585
  • Nickname – #601
  • Team Color Swap – #600
  • Action – #599
  • Throwback – #598
  • Error – #597
  • Trade – #477

The folks at Topps made it even easier to spot these variations without having to look at the CMP codes.  Beneath the card number it will state what type of variation it is.  That helps a bunch.

Every hobby box comes with (1) relic or autograph.  For the most part, you’re going to pull a Clubhouse Collection Relic.  At least that’s what I’m use to pulling.  I’ve always appreciated the high-end autographs and patches that come out of this product.  I think it has a lot to do with the retro designs and on-card signatures.  Gotta love that Wendy’s Founder Dave Thomas has a cut signature in here.  Wendy’s was founded in 1969.

2018 Bowman Chrome Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

The regular season has officially come to an end.  No more Phillies games this year.  My Phillies ended with a record of 80-82.  Much better when compared to 2017 where they finished 66-96.  Although they improved quite a bit, its disappointing to know that at the All-Star break they jumped into first only to lose it a month later.  They completely fell apart.  At one time they were (15) games above .500 and 2.5 games ahead of the Braves.  It’ll be interesting to see what moves they make in the off season.  Their first regular game of the 2019 season takes place on March 28 at 3:05 p.m. at home against Atlanta.

Just because your team didn’t make it to the playoffs doesn’t mean the box ripping has to stop.  In fact, with the release of 2018 Bowman Chrome you might pickup some new prospects that one day could help your team win the Fall Classic.

Bowman Chrome is the second wave of big prospect-based products released by Topps.  The first is Bowman and the third is Bowman Draft.  There are two ways you can enjoy Bowman Chrome this year.  A hobby box comes with (2) mini-boxes.  Packed inside each mini-box are (6) packs and (1) autograph.  For those looking for a quick-thrill and willing to spend a little more, there is the HTA option.  An HTA box contains (1) pack with (3) encased autographs.  I like the HTA option as it gets straight to the hits, and you don’t have the leftover base cards.  But if you’re someone who wants a lot of base, hobby boxes are there too.

(100) veterans and rookies make up the base set.  An additional (100) prospects can be found as well.  The inclusion of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is cool.  He was drafted by the Rockies in 2010, and even has cards in Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects and Topps Pro Debut.  Despite his main job playing professional football, he’s played in some minor league/spring training games.  He was last seen in a Yankees uniform back in March pinch-hitting for Aaron Judge.

(15) players have photo variations.  These are easy to spot as the CMP codes differ.  The base card CMP code ends in #370, whereas photo variations end in #393.  (13) photo variations have autograph counterparts #’ed/25.  Superfractor autograph photo variations are in there too.

Among all of the autographs, relics, and parallels there are (4) types of inserts.  These are 2017 AFL Fall Stars2017 AFL Fall Stars MVP2018 Bowman Sterling Continuity, and Peaks Of Potential.  I like the 2018 Bowman Sterling Continuity cards.  They make me wish that brand still existed as a standalone product.  I use to buy a lot of that.

While opening my box, I did come across something a little odd.  The Purple Shimmer Refractors are #’ed/655.  Usually basic refractors are the highest serial numbered parallels you’ll pull.  This time around they’re #’ed/499.  Its unusual to see something like a Purple Shimmer Refractor numbered higher.  You’ed think it would be the other way around.

Bowman Chrome is a prospector’s paradise.

Here is what I pulled:

  • James Nelson
  • Jorge Guzman

  • Darwinzon Hernandez Refractor #’ed/499
  • Taylor Trammell Purple Shimmer Refractor #’ed/655

Hobby Oddities: 1989 Starting Lineup Card Index

I like to think I know a little bit about this hobby.  There are so many undiscovered hidden gems waiting to be found and understood.  Its not possible to know everything.  When it comes to Starting Lineup figures, I’m far from an expert.  I remember these figures all over the place while attending card shows in the 90’s.  They weren’t really anything I paid that much attention to.  For the most part I just skipped right over them.  At one time I remember owning a Bo Jackson figure that came with a mini Heisman Trophy.  Like a lot of kids, I took it out of the package.

Starting Lineup figures were the brainchild of former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Pat McInally.  Between 1988 and 2001 they were produced by Kenner and later Hasbro.  (124) MLB figures were included in that first set.  Kenner enjoyed selling figures regionally.  This made it difficult to complete a set, especially when the internet was in it’s infancy.

Values for these tiny pieces of plastic vary dramatically.  Some can go for next to nothing, while others reach the hundreds or even thousands of dollars.  The ones that command high prices don’t necessarily have to be of well known players either.  Its all about how many were made, and where they were distributed.

After that successful initial release, it just snowballed from there.  NFL, NBA, NHL soon followed.  It wasn’t long before NASCAR, boxers, and even golfers received the Starting Lineup treatment.  The Starting Lineup brand is still around today, but mainly used to make figures specifically for stadium giveaways.

Sometimes things don’t need to be improved upon.  Starting Lineup found this out in 1989 with their Card Index.  It was a very common thing for these figures to come paired with a trading card.  I guess they thought it would be neat to make their own album.  This just wasn’t any album either, it was smart.  Once you applied (2) of the possible (8) labels to the front, with the push of a button you could instantly open the album to the category of your choice.  No longer did you need to spend time flipping through pages.

Although a cool idea, the Card Index never caught on.  Starting Lineup cards traditionally are the same size as normal cards.  So a regular album would work just fine.  Limited category selection didn’t help either.  Unless you turned into MacGyver and figured out a way to make your own.  It can’t hold nearly as many cards compared to a normal album, and I don’t see any type of expansion feature.

Starting Lineup’s Card Index is a perfect example of how a product with such a convenient feature doesn’t come without certain limitations.  As you can imagine it wasn’t a big seller.  A few thousand were made.  Die-hard Starting Lineup collectors want them today.  Mainly because they weren’t popular, and are difficult to come by now.  Depending on how badly a collector wants one, they can expect to pay $30-$100.  If it would’ve come packed with some exclusive cards, I believe the price would be much higher.

When Kenner went out of business and/or was taken over by Hasbro, former employees took stuff with them.  Here is a mock-up card of the Card Index showing it in the early stages.  From the looks of it, at one time they were going to have it open vertically.  Somewhere along the line they switched it to horizontal.

Completely unrelated to the Card Index, check out this mock-up card for a Starting Lineup product that never got produced.  They were thinking about packaging a figure with a cassette tape.

2018 Topps Chrome Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

From a visual standpoint both 2018 Stadium Club and Topps Chrome take the cake.  Just like Stadium ClubTopps Chrome offers lots to look for and your (2) autographs guaranteed per hobby box don’t have to be the main attraction.  They certainly can be, but with all of the refractors/photo variations you’re bound to pull something in order to help balance things out.

Topps Chrome is a (200) card set that pulls top rookies and veterans featured in Series 1 and Series 2.  If you’re a soccer fan, earlier this year we got to see what the 2018 Topps flagship design looked like on chrome stock with 2017/18 Topps Chrome UEFA Champions League.  I think it translates well, and is always something that needs to be thought about when designing a flagship set.

You can find 2018 Topps Chrome in a few different formats – Hobby boxes, Jumbo boxes, Mega boxes, Blasters, and Value Packs.  Parallels include: Refractor, X-Fractor (Mega Box), Prism, Sepia (Blaster), Pink (Value Packs), Negative, Purple #’ed/299, Blue #’ed/150, Green #’ed/99, Green Wave #’ed/99 (Hobby/Jumbo), Blue Wave #’ed/75 (Hobby/Jumbo), Gold #’ed/50, Gold Wave #’ed/50 (Hobby/Jumbo), Orange #’ed/25 (Hobby), Red #’ed/5, Red Wave #’ed/5 (Hobby/Jumbo), Superfractor #’ed 1/1, and Printing Plates #’ed 1/1.

In addition to the autographs and refractors, photo variations offer another element to chase.  These are fairly easy to identify as the photos used are drastically different.  As usual, I check the CMP code on the backside of the cards.  Base end in #161, whereas the photo variations end in #195.  The one of Aaron Judge is cool because you can clearly see a fan handing him Topps cards to sign.  These too have parallels – Green #’ed/99, Orange #’ed/25, Red #’ed/5, and Superfractor #’ed 1/1.

Inserts come in the form of 1983 ToppsFreshman FlashFuture Stars, Rookie Debut Medallion, and Superstar Sensations.  Each has their own set of parallels and autographs.

Hobby boxes come with (2) on-card autographs.  Jumbos have (5).

2018 Topps Chrome was released right in time for the National this year.  It was wildly popular.  I remember seeing collectors lined up at the Topps booth early in the morning with cases.  For the last three years, specially made Bowman Chrome cards were used with their wrapper redemption program.  Given that Topps Chrome tends to come out around the time of the National, it would be nice to see exclusive refractors for that set.  That might be cutting it a little too close though.  Topps Chrome could get delayed, and then they’ed be handing out promos for a product that hasn’t been released yet.  All well.  I’m sure collectors wouldn’t mind.

2018 Topps Allen & Ginter Hobby Box Break & Review

Allen & Ginter is an odd duck.  And that’s what makes it so incredibly popular.  Sure, baseball is at it’s core.  But all of the weird, wild, and wacky other things are what make opening a box fun.  Even when the checklist is announced, you still don’t know all of the possibilities a box could hold.  Who knows?  This product has been out for a few weeks, and there could still be some undiscovered surprises.  Everything and anything goes with Allen & Ginter.  Just by saying the phrase, “Allen & Ginter has everything including the kitchen sink.”, could trigger Topps to come up with a special catchphrases insert set for next year’s version that literally pictures a kitchen sink on the card.  Like I said, anything goes.

The set this year consists of (350) total cards.  #301 – #350 are short prints.  Parallels of the normal size cards include Silver Glossy (Hobby Hot Box), and Glossy #’ed 1/1.  Mini cards have and always will play a major role in Allen & Ginter.  Each pack should contain (1) mini card.  Parallels of the minis include A&G Logo Back, Black, No Number, Brooklyn Back #’ed/25, Gold (Retail), Glow-In-The-Dark (unannounced (1) per case), Metal #’ed/3 (Hobby), Wood #’ed 1/1 (Hobby), Glossy #’ed 1/1, and Framed Printing Plates #’ed 1/1.

Inside every hobby box there should be at least (3) hits.  For some reason, some box breakers have reported not receiving all three guaranteed cards.  The same goes for the mini Wood parallels #’ed 1/1.  The mini Wood parallels aren’t the easiest cards to pull to begin with, but collectors opening many cases haven’t found a single one.  During the National Sports Collectors Convention I attended the Topps Q&A.  These topics were brought up.  According to Topps, “We have been investigating with our manufacturer and they say they’re in the product.  It doesn’t make sense.  We’re continuing to dig.  Usually when there’s a collation problem, it shows up in other areas.  When I come into work, I look on eBay to see if any are in there.  It’s odd.”  This mainly pertains to the Wood minis not found in Rip Cards.  Ones found in Rip Cards seem to be the only Wood minis to popup.

There are (42) non-baseball related autographs.  People like Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Jon Lovitz, Bill James, and Tommy Wiseau highlight these cards.

Unique and odd relics make for some interesting pulls.  DNA, Fabled, Sunken Treasure, and World’s Greatest Beaches relics are instant Allen & Ginter classics.

Truth is, if you enjoyed Allen & Ginter other years, you should like the 2018 set as well.

2018 Topps Big League Baseball Hobby Box Break & Review

Wanting to get more of a younger demographic back involved with the hobby is something I think all manufacturers would like to do.  This hobby started out for kids.  Then it became a business when all of that old cardboard started to gain value.  Follow that up with much more attention focused on autographs/memorabilia.  Newer products can financially be out of the range for some would be collectors.  Some say digital products like Topps Bunt could possibly be the answer.  Physical products with digital tie-ins maybe.  I don’t know because I’m not a fortune teller.  Its tricky trying to create a product for a younger audience.  Kids don’t like being treated like kids.  They want to pull out the big stuff they see others getting.  But at the same time the manufacturer has to be careful not to load it up too much or the price per box/pack ends up being too high.  Its a balancing act.  For years I’ve said that Topps should have a corporate booth on the Little League campus during the World Series like many companies do.  Talk about hitting your target audience.  Little League has been known to be picky and expensive about who can and cannot setup.  There is a whole system to it.

Enter 2018 Topps Big League Baseball.  Hobby boxes come with (24) packs, (10) cards per pack, and cost about $45.  Its possible to pull a hit, but there is nothing guaranteed per box.  The base set consists of (400) cards.  Parallels include Gold (one per pack), Blue (Blasters), Rainbow Foil #’ed/100, Black & White #’ed/50, and Red Foil #’ed 1/1.

Photo variations are in here too.  The easiest ones to pull are the Base Player Weekend Nickname variations.  These fall 1:3 packs.  I actually consider them more of an insert.  More difficult variations come 1:507 packs.

CMP Codes:

  • Base #106
  • Base Player Weekend Nickname #529
  • Error #530

Like I mentioned before, you aren’t guaranteed any hits per box.  With that being said, autographs can be pulled.  There are two types of autographs.  The first is Big League Autographs which come 1:114 packs.  (34) current stars and veterans make up this checklist.  The other is Rookie Republic Autographs coming in at 1:102 packs.  (23) rookies are in here.  All autographs have Gold #’ed/99, Black & White #’ed/50, and Red Foil #’ed 1/1 parallels.

Star Caricature Reproductions and their original artwork counterparts make for fun pulls.  These add a bit more animation to the player’s face.  I’d have to say that my favorite cards are the Ballpark Landmarks portion of the base set.  You’ll find that they fall between card #351 and #365.  A card of the Harry Kalas statue at Citizens Bank Park would have been neat to see.  The one of B&O Warehouse reminds me of the two times the National Sports Collectors Convention was held in Baltimore.  I can almost see the restaurant I ate at.

If you’re a set collector who wants a break from this year’s flagship design, 2018 Topps Big League Baseball might just work.
