2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club – Set #3

Set #3 of the 2022 Topps 582 Montgomery Club has arrived, and this one includes a Wander Franco rookie card.

(20) cards make up the set. The design reminds me a lot of 1982 Topps Baseball.

  • Greg Maddux #2
  • Luis Robert #3
  • Yordan Alvarez #4
  • Wander Franco RC #5
  • Pete Alonso #6
  • Trea Turner #7
  • Giancarlo Stanton #8
  • J.T. Realmuto #9
  • Byron Buxton #10
  • Ichiro #11
  • Bo Bichette #12
  • Austin Riley #13
  • Jarren Duran RC #14
  • Corbin Burnes #15
  • Derek Jeter #16
  • Paul Goldschmidt #17
  • Rickey Henderson #18
  • Rafael Devers #19
  • Bo Jackson #20

Lets talk about some of the recent pre-sales members have had the opportunity to participate in.

MetaZoo is not something I’m familiar with. But Topps offered members (2) boxes of the new MetaZoo Wilderness product to buy. At $50/box that seemed reasonable to me. You don’t play games with these cards. The game cards are made by another company. MetaZoo cards made by Topps feature characters from the game. Topps did something similar with Pokemon in 2000. Even if it doesn’t turn into being a big flip, I will buy the Sapphire Edition that Topps is suppose to come out with in the 4th quarter later this year. Just as long as it is made available to club members first.

2022 Bowman 1st Edition Baseball I passed on. Members were allowed to buy (2) boxes at $399.99/box. I think a lot of people who passed on 2022 Topps 1st Edition thought they could make up for their mistake by purchasing these. Many more boxes were produced which should be a dead giveaway since you were allowed to buy (2) of them. Sure, some prospect could end up becoming a superstar and passing on a box for $399.99 might seem stupid down the road. But who knows if/when that will happen.

2021 Topps Chrome Update Baseball Sapphire Edition is another one I passed on. Members were allowed to purchase (3) boxes at $149.99/box. Each box guarantees (1) autograph, and (1) parallel #’ed/50 or less. Given that the limit was (3) boxes indicates a lot of product was made. With 2022 products rolling out so many collectors have switched their focus to those, and have had their fill of 2021 products. If you’re looking for a Sapphire product to bust, Topps Chrome Update Baseball is usually the most affordable.

A lot of people (myself included) thought club members would get a shot at 2021-22 Topps UEFA Champions League 1st Edition. Instead Topps offered this to UK residents only.
