My take

2019 Topps Stranger Things Series 2 Hobby

More of the same here from the hit Netflix series. I am a fan because I grew up in the 80’s and 90’s and I can remember the clothes, music, and other goings ons that appear in the show and that is just cool.

You can expect 2 hits per box with one guaranteed autograph or sketch card per box. David Harbour is on the auto list as are other fan favorites.

If you couldn’t get enough the first season, check this release out.

2018-19 Panini Court Kings Basketball

Well the hunt for Luka Doncic autos continues but now you can add Trae Young to the list of hot cards to get after.

The design of this product for me has always been a highlight, and I like the canvas texture of the cards. You can expect to see Rookie and Vet autos and surprising use of strong colors with a pop art and mixed media flare.

The price point per box is rather low considering all of the product thus far for this season, at $94/box. So check it out and expect 2 Autos, 2 Rookies, 2 Inserts, and One Parallel per box.

2018-19 Upper Deck AHL Hockey

I gotta be honest, I don’t know what to expect here. I see some big prospect names like Carter Hart on the checklist but I have never purchased or had the opportunity to purchase this product.

As with all other Upper Deck product, during the first month, their prices can’t be listed. But, on a per box basis, you can expect 2 Autos per box.

My two cents, I will stick with the flagship product from Upper Deck, series one and series two for me.

2017-18 Leaf Pearl Hockey

If you have been following @Leaf_Cards on Twitter, you will have seen some of the fantastic cards available in this product including non-hockey subjects, like Babe Ruth, and a cool set of stuff that brings sports names from a decade together.

An ultra-highend set this isn’t for the faint of heart and if you can get your hands on this limited product, good luck. I can’t wait to see what everyone hits.

I am actually taking some time to visit my local card shop on release to see him open their own personal case of this product.

That’s it for this week, get out there and enjoy the hobby. Don’t like the list of new releases? Dig into what you like and see if you can make some trades, make some friends, or make some money on what you have.
