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 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

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.

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.
