Wednesday is release day for 2022 Topps Series 1 Baseball.
Topps was holding an online rip party with several breakers Tuesday night as a preview.
There’s a set of inserts that wasn’t announced in the preview material last year.
“Home Field Advantage” is a case hit with the cards mixing the player with some imagery of the city where he plays. A few have been pulled ahead of the official release day and listed on eBay.
Topps also brought out another option: 1st Edition boxes sold as an online excusive. Each box has 24 packs with 10 cards per pack. The product is essentially the same as the regular Series 1 but with a “1st Edition” foil stamp logo on each card.
Autographed cards are possible, but there was no word on inserts, parallels, etc.
2022 1st Edition was made available to Montgomery Club members Tuesday. Any sale to the general public would likely open on Wednesday. Check here to see if and when they’re available. Boxes are already being offered by resellers on eBay.
A copy of the first dual jersey/autograph card ever made—one featuring Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant—is up for auction.
Graded BGS 8 (one higher), the 2000-01 Upper Deck Game Jersey Combo card is numbered 9/10.
The current high bid at PWCC Marketplace was $160,000 as of late Tuesday afternoon with bidding set to continue through Feb. 19.
The auction also includes a 2000 Playoff Contenders Tom Brady Championship Ticket Rookie Autograph graded BGS 8.5/10 that’s at $1.7 million, a 2009 Bowman Chrome Mike Trout Gold Refractor graded PSA 10 (1 of 2) and a 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #53 graded PSA 7.
A 2002 Finest Tom Brady XFractor numbered to 20 and graded PSA 9 sold for a record $95,000 on eBay over the weekend according to Card Ladder.
Two years ago, you could have owned one for about $3,000.
A jersey worn by NBA Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo in the Milwaukee Bucks’ Christmas Day win over the Boston Celtics is among the top items in the current NBA Auctions cycle.
Antetokounmpo recorded a Double-Double during that holiday matchup. He played 29 minutes and registered a game-high 36 points with 5 assists, a team-high 12 rebounds and two blocks.
The jersey, worn in half of the game, is part of the NBA/MeiGray partnership and as of Tuesday afternoon, the high bid had surpassed $10,000.
Grand Slam Collectibles in Tennessee says it has signed Kentucky quarterback Will Levis to a Name/Image/Likeness agreement. Grand Slam’s Nathan Burns says it is the largest collectibles-based NIL deal for an NCAA athlete so far, with autographs a major part of it.
