2021 Topps Chrome Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire Edition Coming Tomorrow For 582 Montgomery Club Members

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club will get early access to 2021 Topps Chrome Garbage Pail Kids Sapphire Edition tomorrow 9/20.

Artwork will be from the Original Series 3 & 4. 2020 boxes originally sold for $50. They now sell for $1k on the secondary market. I predict the 2021 product will be priced much higher out of the gate. Topps probably printed more as well.

2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club Set #5 Autograph Arrives

Between 2022 Bowman Sapphire Edition, 2022 Topps Finest Flashbacks, and the missing autograph in Set #5 of the 2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club membership, Topps has had some mishaps recently. I’m not sure what Fanatics is doing over there, but someone needs to take charge.

Topps had to send out the autographs separately to members of the 582 Montgomery Club. Here’s the autograph I received which was suppose to be included within Set #5 of the 2022 membership. Next up is the 2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club Factory Set.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a Ke’Bryan Hayes autograph.

2022 Topps Finest Flashbacks Now Available To 582 Montgomery Club Members

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club are now able to buy (1) box of 2022 Topps Finest Flashbacks.

2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club – Set #5

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club received Set #5 of their 2022 membership. No autograph. Set #5 is suppose to contain an autograph, and Topps forgot to include them. Not a single Set #5 contained an autograph.

Shortly after numerous complaints, Topps sent this communication out to all club members on 8/5/22:

Dear Topps Customer,

This email is regarding your order for the 2022 582 Montgomery Club Set #5.

Your set #5 has begun shipping, please note the autograph in the set is being distributed at random and sent separately. The autograph will begin shipping in the next week, apologies for any confusion these separate shipments cause.

Thank you again,

The Topps Team

Accidents happen, and communication is key. Looks like the autographs should be on their way soon.

Set #5 consists of (20) cards. It looks like Topps channeled their 1959 baseball design for this one.

  • MacKenzie Gore RC #1
  • Santiago Espinal #2
  • Josh Naylor #3
  • Mike Trout #4
  • Logan Webb #5
  • Taylor Trammell #6
  • Jhoan Durán RC #7
  • Ke’Bryan Hayes #8
  • Jonathan Loaisiga #9
  • Alec Bohm #10
  • Hunter Greene RC #11
  • Jonah Heim #12
  • Nico Hoerner #13
  • Juan Soto #14
  • Julio Rodriguez RC #15
  • Luis Garcia #16
  • Sheldon Neuse #17
  • William Contreras #18
  • Aaron Judge #19
  • Tyler Glasnow #20

I’ve skipped the last few pre-sales Montgomery Club members have had access to. However, I did make sure to secure a box of 2022 Topps Chrome Star Wars Sapphire Edition directly from Topps. I wasn’t going to pass on that.

2022 Topps Finest Flashbacks Baseball, 2021-22 Topps Chrome Sapphire Edition Bundesliga, 2022 Topps 3D Baseball, and 2022 Topps Archives Snapshots Baseball are all online-exclusive products scheduled to be released over the next month. I’m sure Montgomery Club members will get early access to some of them.

Up next to arrive is the 2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club Factory Set. Series 1 and Series 2 cards all in one set featuring the Topps 582 Montgomery Club foil stamp.

During the Topps Q&A meeting which was held during the National Sports Collectors Convention it was announced that Julio Rodriguez, Bobby Witt, Jr., and Spencer Torkelson will have rookies included within the 2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club Factory Set.

2021-22 Topps Chrome UEFA Champion’s League Sapphire Edition Available To Montgomery Club Members

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club are able to purchase their allocation of 2021-22 Topps Chrome UEFA Champion’s League Sapphire Edition.

2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Edition Star Wars Available For 582 Montgomery Club Members

I knew it was coming. I’ve been suggesting it for awhile, and today it arrived. Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club got the opportunity to buy (1) box of 2022 Topps Chrome Sapphire Edition Star Wars.

Based on the checklist it consists of Series 1 and Series 2 of the original 1977 Topps Star Wars set.

2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club – Set #4

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club have received Set #4 of their membership.

This set consists of (20) stickers. Both Wander Franco and Julio Rodriguez have rookies in it.

  • Shohei Ohtani #1
  • Ronald Acuña Jr. #2
  • Cal Ripken Jr. #3
  • Max Scherzer #4
  • Wander Franco RC #5
  • Freddie Freeman #6
  • Roger Clemens #7
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. #8
  • Oneil Cruz RC #9
  • Francisco Lindor #10
  • Jose Abreu #11
  • Albert Pujols #12
  • Jose Altuve #13
  • Chipper Jones #14
  • Trevor Story #15
  • Clayton Kershaw #16
  • Julio Rodríguez RC #17
  • Kris Bryant #18
  • Corey Seager #19
  • Carlos Correa #20

Next up is the set members get to vote on. Then the Topps 582 Montgomery Club Factory Set will come last. A lot of people (myself included) were hoping guys like Spencer Torkelson, Bobby Witt Jr., and Julio Rodriguez would have base rookie cards in Series 2. Having a base rookie in both Series 1 and Series 2 automatically means they will have a rookie in the Topps 582 Montgomery Club Factory Set. Instead they have Photo Variation rookies in Series 2 which are not included with the factory set.

Wouldn’t it be cool to see one of these membership sets consist of (20) MLB mascots printed on Topps Chrome Sapphire stock?

I’m still holding out for some unique Sapphire releases that would be fun to see members get first access to – Star Wars and Tennis are good examples.
