Dwarfing the competition, 2016 Topps Chrome Baseball takes first on the list with a strong showing. Dropping off slightly, 2016 Allen & Ginter Baseball comes in second and is followed by impressive debuts from 2016 Prizm NASCAR (3rd) and 2016 Donruss Football (4th).
2016 Topps Chrome Baseball proves that collectors still appreciate a little shine, and on-card signatures rarely hurt. The set also boasts some rare variations for young stars of MLB. Meanwhile, Allen & Ginter is still plugging along and helped by a large non-baseball autograph checklist that includes Michael Phelps.
While baseball owns the first two spots, it's overall hold on the top ten is starting to weaken slightly. However, in addition to Chrome and A&G, the national pastime is also represented by 2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball (6th), 2016 Bowman Inception Baseball (7th), 2016 Donruss Optic Baseball (8th), and 2016 Topps Tribute Baseball (10th). 2016 Topps Tier One Baseball and 2016 Panini Diamond Kings Baseball were just edged out.
Finally making some noise, NFL collectors are starting to show up with both 2016 Panini Certified Football (5th) and 2016 Donruss Football cracking the top ten with good interest. Barely missing out was 2016 Prestige Football.
Sporting sets outside of the major leagues also showed some muscle during the period. The overall Panini debut for NASCAR showed up big with 2016 Prizm Racing taking third overall. Also, despite being out for over a month, 2016 Topps U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team Hopefuls is experiencing renewed interest. As the Olympics in Rio continue, expect to see more from this multi-sport set that includes autographs for both Michael Phelps and Simone Biles.
