The 2020 Topps 582 Montgomery Club – Set #2

Members of the Topps 582 Montgomery Club have begun to receive their second set for 2020.  This 20-sticker set is modeled after the 1968 Topps Baseball Action Stickers test issue.  The original 1968 Topps Baseball Action Stickers set consists of (16) stickers.  Being a test issue they didn’t “stick” around very long.  Now they are highly sought after by vintage collectors.

The 1968 Topps Baseball Action Stickers are an odd size.  Strips measure 15.75″ x 3.25″.  Pulled apart the panels measure 3.25″ x 5.25″.  Storing them can be difficult.  Given how condition sensitive they are damage can be done very easily.

I’m happy to announce the set made for Topps 582 Montgomery Club members features stickers that are the normal card size.  No difficulty in storing these.

Here’s the checklist:

  • Yordan Alvarez RC #1
  • Cody Bellinger #2
  • Harmon Killebrew #3
  • Bo Bichette RC #4
  • Bob Gibson #5
  • Stephen Stasburg #6
  • Ivan Rodriguez #7
  • Cal Ripken Jr. #8
  • Ted Williams #9
  • Luis Robert RC #10
  • Javier Baez #11
  • Roberto Alomar #12
  • Gavin Lux RC #13
  • Wade Boggs #14
  • Alex Bregman #15
  • Tom Glavine #16
  • Nico Hoerner RC #17
  • Mike Piazza #18
  • Mookie Betts #19
  • Willie Mays #20

My 2020 Topps 582 Montgomery Club Membership Has Begun – Set #1

The Topps 582 Montgomery Club is just like the Jelly of the Month Club.  Its the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.  In November I received a membership as an early Christmas gift.

Last week I was notified by Topps that my first set had been shipped.

This set consists of (20) cards, and comes with (1) autograph.  According to the card backs “As a 2020 member, you have received this special 20-card set featuring a lost design from the early days of Topps recently uncovered in our vault.”

I don’t know about you, but the classic red border and yellow text reminds me a lot of 1971 Topps Football.  I think it was a good inspiration.  All cards are printed on vintage stock.

Even though this is a 2020 membership, the first set comes from 2019 and has the accompanying key rookies.  I’m hoping to see some Yordan Alvarez rookies once we hit 2020.

Checklist

  • Pete Alonso RC #1
  • Vladimir Guerrero Jr. RC #2
  • Ronald Acuña Jr. #3
  • Juan Soto #4
  • Fernando Tatis Jr. RC #5
  • Jacob deGrom #6

My autograph is of Dodgers second baseman Max Muncy.

I Joined The Topps 582 Montgomery Club

On November 14th Sports Card Info became a member of the very exclusive Topps 582 Montgomery Club.  With this membership I will receive the following starting in December 2019 and throughout 2020:

  • Gift with Membership: 20-card Set + Autograph
  • (2) 20-Card Sets
  • (1) 20-Sticker Set
  • (1) 20-Card “Members Vote” MLB Set + Autograph
  • (1) “582 Montgomery” stamped Topps Baseball Complete Set
  • Exclusive access to purchase “2019 Topps Brooklyn Collection” featuring all-new configuration on Topps.com
  • NEW!  Collectible Pin
  • NEW!  Exclusive Access to Pre-Sale window for select Topps 2020 Online Exclusives including Sapphire, Ginter X, and Archives Snapshots.
  • First option for membership renewal

On 11/27 I received the following e-mail from Topps:

Next week will be the first pre-sale for 582 Montgomery Club Members; the online exclusive 2019 Bowman Heritage Baseball.  This product includes one guaranteed autograph per box.  You will receive an email on Tuesday notifying you when the pre-sale begins.

Your 582 Montgomery Club gift with membership is in production and will be shipped out in December.  It’s a 20-card set that features a lost design from the Topps Vault with a guaranteed autograph!

Have a happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Topps!

The communication Topps has going here is great.  Not only was I given an update to my membership, but I was made aware that on Tuesday 12/3 a new online exclusive product (2019 Bowman Heritage) will be available for pre-sale before the general public gets the chance to buy it.

I’m not sure how many pre-sale products I’m going to buy right now.  Personally, I think I’m going to wait until 2020 to start doing that.  I might try a couple of them.  Sometimes these online exclusive products can seriously jump in price once they hit the secondary market.  But I didn’t join this club just to try and flip cards.  I joined because it looks like a lot of fun.  I even bought a nice album to store them in.  It has a stitched baseball cover with a black felt liner.
