2020 Topps Series 2 Jumbo Hobby Box Break

This release comes at a strange time in 2020. Normally, the season has been rolling along for almost three months, and some new rookies have started to emerge. This year, due to the global pandemic, no regular season games have been played by the release date in late June. Summer training will begin the first week of July, with fan free games starting in late July at this point.

The pandemic has caused other problems within the hobby. Many releases such as this one have been delayed, and there seems to be some quality issues while trying to rush and catch up. This release is a continuation of series one, with another 350 card base set, the usual expected parallels, and many of the same insert sets duplicating numbers unfortunately.

A box advertises 10 packs, with 46 cards per pack. Each box also guarantees 1 autograph and 2 relic cards per box. That was not the case with this box. It contained one autograph, but no other hits or relics. After spending some time going through Topps’ website, it appears the right course is to submit a form stating the problem. I’ve heard rumors that Topps customer service is notoriously difficult to deal with, so we’ll see how it goes. I submitted this issue i the evening of July 1. I’ll post updates as I hear back from them.

This box contained:

396 Base (337 different of 350 set 96.3%)
