2018 Topps WWE Undisputed Wrestling – Product Review

Manufacturer: Topps

Product: 2018 Topps WWE Undisputed Wrestling

PRICE: $225.00/box

When I saw the two boxes of Undisputed arrive at Scott’s I had to ask if he was open to me busting them and doing a product review.

As you can see in the video above, I thought I would take a different route to the video, rather than show the pack opening, I just showed the results. I am not sure if this is a method I prefer, but it sped up the process and you could see the amount of cards you can get and the hits faster than if I had opened each pack.

Let me know in the comments below if you like this better, or if you prefer to see each pack opened.

I really like the thickness of each card, each comfortably fitting in a 100pt top loader.

The hit per pack style was awesome as was the guarantee of 8 autographs per box. It was good odds you would get a group of good names or a good chance at parallels in your box.

I like the design of the cards with the ink blot that made the card feel dynamic and rough which is what you want a wrestling card to look like. I also like the varnish on the photos on a matte card. The back of the card had short snippets of info about the wrestler and a key match in their career.

The subsets celebrating 30 years… man 30 years. Survivor Series and Royal Rumble. They were a walk down memory lane. It was really fun reading about the event after the video stopped and I put the cards back in my shoebox.

If you are interested in any of the hits, please check out my ebay listings. I had no idea what to price these at so based on checking out listings prior to posting my hits, I had some general figures to work with, they will be adjusted as cards complete sales.

Thanks for watching and let me know your thoughts by commenting below.

2018 Topps Baseball Series Two – Blaster Product Review

Manufacturer: Topps

Product: 2018 Topps Baseball – Series Two – Target Blaster

PRICE: $19.99/box

I was able to get a blaster of this at Target and went in hunting for a short print of Torres or Acuna, came away with a Derek Jeter Legend SP. I can’t complain for the flagship product.

Again, I always hate the cardstock for this stuff, too flimsy, but it is what it is. The flagship base product has been including some great photography, I liked the team photos or at least the more candid photos of some of the stars of the game.

If you can get a hold of a blaster or more in retail, it is a cheaper way to get your hands on the stuff, always a fun rip in hobby or retail. Enjoy it, then get out and see a game live and in person.

2018 Bowman Baseball – Mega Box (Target Exclusive) – Product Review

THE REVIEW

Manufacturer: Topps

Product: 2018 Bowman Baseball – Mega Box (Target Exclusive)

PRICE: $14.99/box

Like a lot of other in the hobby, I did my hunting at many Targets in my area and not only did I search up front with the cards in their normal spot, there was word that the cards were near end caps in the toy aisle, or even in the grocery aisle at different stores. Great move Target, getting me to walk the whole store on my hunt. Also, if I had a fitbit, I would have racked up even more steps.

I never did find any boxes, but thankfully, I have people willing to help me out.

I want to thank Brad, @dailywaxcards (give him a follow!) and maker of sortsof.com, download the sortsof (iphone|android) app for your phone today.

He did get me two boxes, one you see in the video above, the second box had these two beauties.

2018 Bowman Baseball Retail Blaster Box (Target) – Product Review

THE REVIEW

Manufacturer: Topps

Product: 2018 Bowman Baseball

PRICE: $19.99/box

The Ohtani chase got a hold of me and the hobby box prices were skyrocketing so fast, retail was definitely the only way I was going to get any of this product to do a review. As you saw in the video above, I was lucky enough to pull an auto. Whether Aaron Knapp will be good or not, I don’t know. I will have to hit MLB.com and other sites to get a look into how the kid is doing. I still can’t believe I hit an auto. Oh and I also couldn’t believe I didn’t hit an Ohtani base.

Side note: I opened 5 total blasters including this one for the review. I hit a color parallel paper auto and one of the tough Big League Breakthrough redemption cards. Check the photo below.

2018 Topps Gypsy Queen – Product Review

THE REVIEW

Manufacturer: Topps

Product: 2018 Topps Gypsy Queen Baseball

PRICE: $100.00/box

Okay, so I have a confession.

I have been hooked on this product since 2012. I have been working on base sets on each year since then. I haven’t even finished the base set of 2012 and I need to just get that done.

So what do I like about it? Well, I am sure by now you can guess, I like the feel of these cards, the cardstock is nice and thick, and the look and feel? Forget about it. I love the stylized look of these.  I know I saw some early comments on other sites about people not liking the product design, but I am and always will be a fan. I liken it to Topps Magic, so I am glad this product line hasn’t disappeared.

Topps if you see this, keep this product line going.

If you are a fan of this product you will also have noticed the missing mini card boxes. I am on the fence about this set not being a part of the product this year. They were a pain to deal with and trying to build a set of those, good luck. I am sure some have done it, but I was not ready to fork over the money to do it. I guess, I am okay with dropping it.

The tarot cards, I will have likely mentioned it in the video above, I like this set and will be looking for lots for sale on ebay. I have tried to get some already, only to be outbid. I hope I can get this set done soon, maybe after the initial release excitement dies down, I may be able to get a deal on them then. Wish me luck.

Let me know what you think of the set by leaving your comment below, in the meantime, check out the helpful info below.
