2017 Topps Star Wars: The Last Jedi Hobby Box Break

Topps released their latest Star Wars set on the day The Last Jedi opened in theaters. It’s a pretty clean design, and seems a lot more straight forward than recent releases. As usual, the release was pretty hush hush before that day, to prevent any spoilers.

2016 Topps National Baseball Card Day Hobby Pack

Topps is starting to get in to the business of National Baseball Card day. Six card packs were given away at hobby stores, as well as a bonus Kris Bryant card with a certain purchase. The full set consists of 49 cards, but the packs also include random autographs as well. There’s not much too it, but for free, you can’t really complain. It’s a bit of a different design, and seems a little out of character for Topps. It’s a nice change of pace, though.
