Preview: 2012 Topps Five-Star Baseball

I’ve been saving this preview for quite sometime. I’m not exactly sure why, perhaps it is because of the pure epicness of the product. Or perhaps I was waiting for the most amount of information possible. Either way, this product hits stores on November 14, 2012, and the baseball collecting world is pumped up.

Well maybe not ALL of the baseball collecting world. A box of this product does cost around $500. That is big time money, for hopefully, a complete big time product.

Each box contains 5 cards, that breaks down to $100 per card, with all 5 cards being hits. This includes 1 active player autograph, 1 retired player autograph, 1 autographed relic, 1 autographed booklet or an additional autograph, and 1 jumbo jersey/patch, bat plate, or bat knob. This product is loaded with some of collectors favorite hits on the market.

Did I mention every autograph in the product is signed on card? No stickers here.

Some other highlights include special inscription cards, 8-autograph booklets, and quad patch cards. But there is also one highlight that is missed out, the 5-Star Club. The Topps Five Star Club is reserved for those who spend the big bucks with the company, including big products like this. The Club gets you access you can’t get anywhere else. A personalized membership card, exclusive Five Star baseball and football cards, VIP status at events with Topps, and quarterly calls with Topps employees. The perks are pretty good I would say.

The product already looks to be a winner amongst those who have seen the previews. It’s pricey, but it looks like one of the best high end baseball products of all time. But that’s on paper. November 14, 2012, we will find out for sure.

Check out more information on this product by visiting Cardboard Connection.

You can purchase this product online at Dave and Adam’s Card World, my preferred online retailer. Or find group breaks online at Mojo Break.

Preview: 2011 Topps Five Star Football

Remember last year, when Topps came out with Five-Star football and everyone wondered how Topps would pull off this new high end football product? Well, everyone was stunned when it turned out to be the best high end football product outside of Exquisite. UD had lost their NFL license and Topps was right there to pick up the slack.

Well ladies and gentlemen, it’s coming back for a sophomore season.

Mark February 22, 2012, down on your calendars for this heavyweight to come to your shop.

One autographed rookie card, one base rookie autographed patch card, one autographed veteran or retired player patch card, one autographed book or dual autographed card, one jumbo jersey or patch card, and 3 base cards. All for $475. Yes, it’s a pricey product, but man are those cards nice because every, every autograph is on card.

Not only will you find some of these beautiful cards, you may also find a redemption for authentic rookie NFL jerseys signed by that player. An idea I’ve had for awhile is coming to fruition and it sounds marvelous.

What do you guys think? Will it be that awesome product it was last year?
