Thoughts on 2016 Topps
What all of this means, and with the receipt of my three jumbo boxes of 2016 Topps Series One, baseball is right around the corner! With that, I spent the majority of today by sorting through the cards and building my set.
This year's design is probably one of Topps' best yet. From what I am hearing from a lot of my trading partners, lots of folks are really happy with the changes that were made. Gone it the standard white border seen on so many Topps offerings over the years. There are a ton of great photography shots this year, as has been customary in the recent past.
I did ok with my hits from my boxes. I feel like I will be able to move all of them very quickly, which is something I haven't been able to say about hits from some of the past boxes I have bought.
I finally was able to pull an actual PC parallel in one of my boxes, with the above Davis gold parallel. It is numbered 969/2016. I like how the color parallels are very subtle this year. I think it is a nice way to do them. They're subtle, but you can still tell what is a parallel and what isn't.
Overall, I was really happy with this year's Series 1. While I didn't have any super pulls, this one was solid, and being able to move almost everything quickly helps me out. I will be able to move the rest at next weekend's card show. Come on out to see me if you can make it!
