Courtesy of Maine Sports Cards, here’s a look at some of the upcoming sports card products being released over the next couple of weeks.
National Treasures Collegiate Football (9/15)
Panini’s latest college-oriented product from the National Treasures line is in its third year, with seven card packs offering six autographs or memorabilia cards and one base or parallel. The College Materials Signature cards are the big hits here with the current crop of NFL rookies signing cards that carry a large patch.
While recent players are featured, you’ll also see some past greats and combo cards like the Brian Bosworth-Barry Switzer Oklahoma duo.
Boxes are currently available for $375 and up.
Topps Triple Threads Baseball (9/15)
The checklist for Triple Threads was just released. You can see it inside our preview here.
It’s the first of two Topps baseball releases set for next Wednesday, which is good news for those who sell them for a living. Sales of 2017 products have been exceptional, thanks to a strong crop of rookies.
Triple Threads master boxes have two mini boxes. One will have three base cards, two base parallels, one Triple Relic card and one Unity Single Auto Jumbo Relic or one autographed rookie card. The second pack will offer three base cards, two parallels, one Autographed Triple Relic and one Unity Jumbo Relic.
Topps Gold Label Baseball (9/20)
If you’re not that focused on autographs, Gold Label is a lower priced product that has a past and present star and rookie-oriented checklist with three different “classes” that feature different photos.
There are signed cards in the product with 65 players appearing on the auto checklist inside our preview.
