Product: 2019 Topps Inception Baseball
At $65/box or so, get ready, because you are paying for a one-hit wonder here. I love the fat packs but this year, their isn’t one particular player to chase. So if you are looking to flip, this product may not be one you want to dump a lot of cash into.
On the other hand, if you are wanting to build a set and get a hit while you are at it, you get four base cards, two base card parallels, normally one numbered and an auto or autograph patch card.
Is it worth it? I think on a personal box level, you are taking a bigger risk than normal. If you are sold on this set and want a particular player or card, I would steer you towards buying it outright on ebay.
The design is lacking some inspiration with its stylization and coffee stain look. I would think that using the same treatment on the players as GQ will run its course soon with collectors. I am hoping that they up the design game a bit next year… my guess is they won’t.
There are case hits with the product, a black card with silver or gold ink auto, then a jumbo patch auto which is vertical.
OVERALL RATING (Like, Love, Hate)
Meh, I could do without this product.
