Topps is planning another online Rip Party for the release of its flagship baseball card product this year.
There won’t be a gathering of breakers like last year’s “Million Card Rip Party” in Dallas for obvious reasons.
The event will take place February 9 on Topps’ social media channels, one day before the official release of 2021 Series 1.
They also say they’ll be ripping packs “through the decades” rather than just the 2021 Series 1 boxes.
Several different breaking companies will be part of the show, in a head-to-head competition of some sort.
Topps is marking its 70th anniversary of baseball card production this year, with 70th anniversary foil stamping on each card and a special insert set.
Hobby boxes with 24 packs of 14 cards including one autograph or relic cards are currently selling online for $120-$140.
