2017 Topps Inception Baseball – Product Review

 

THE REVIEW

Manufacturer: Topps

Product: 2017 Topps Inception Baseball

PRICE: $70.00/box

What a great design and feel to a set, I have been a fan of the Inception product and wish the market would share my opinion on this set but when it comes to grading, it can be a tough set to really love. I mean love… ha.

The set isn’t really deep unless you try to collect all of the color parallels, the base set is just 100 cards in all. I don’t have unlimited funds but this may be a cool base set to put together. With the rise in prices for Aaron Judge rookies, I think I may end up paying more than I would like for his stuff but… well, we shall see if I can make it happen.

The cardstock, something I am big on, is nice and feels high-end. as for the design, I think it looks like Topps Magic just before it stopped being produced (I miss that set TOPPS).

I enjoyed the break, too bad I didn’t catch it all on video, but the recap, I hope you enjoyed that.

If you can stomach the price on this stuff, I think you should give the set a shot, if you do, let me know in the comments below, how you did!
