User Reviews

  1. This is only available at Target?

  2. Yep, just like it says above. This was also the case in 2017 and 2016.

  3. Beautiful product… topps did a great job on this set. Juan soto chrome card rookie is key to this set. Also it is loaded with rookie cards. Cant go wrong putting a set together$$$

  4. Awesome product… topps did a great job on this set. Soto rookie chrome card, cant go wrong with that.

  5. My only beef, is that I visit 10+ Targets in my area, and I’ll be lucky if 2 have them stocked, and many never do, or someone else is traveling to all the Targets like myself and snatching them up before I can.

  6. I visited my local Target for the last 4 days straight, and they were finally stocked today. I hate to say it but I left nothing for the next person seeking them…Beautiful product!

  7. Found two boxes here. Second box was a dud, but first box had a printing plate and an autograph. Btw, the auto I got was numbered HMT-29 and was an x-fractor /125

  8. If you can find them very nice buy for $20 dollars. Hit a Josh Hader Gold Refractor Auto.

  9. This is a great set, I love it. The only thing I’m not crazy about his all the sticker autos. Are there any on card Autos in this set Trey? Please reply whenever you have time. I heard that 90% of the Autos are stickers, is this true or is there actually 10% of on card autos?

  10. The only on-card I have seen are the four Rookie Autograph cards.

  11. Nice set but they could have put some on card Autos in the set instead of all sticker autos

  12. I just got my hands on some of this yesterday and pulled Dustin Fowler and Shohei Ohtani Autographs out of two blasters. This stuff is loaded!

  13. Decent product, but does there really need to be 4 different Gleyber Torres cards in a 100 card base set? The fact that 4 teams do not have a single card makes it even more egregious. I’ll pass on this one.

  14. Wow is all I can say… I’ve spent probly close to over $3000 on topps Chrome product and the lowest I’ve pulled is a base refractor /50. I spend $17 on a retail product and pull a /5 red wave on card Auto. Only thin I don’t like how it says base set is 100 cards, but there are multiples of same players all-star and team logo is how I set then apart but some players have more image variations. Is one style of the card considered to be true base card for set collectors? Thanks

  15. It’s 100 cards in the base set because it is HMT1 to HMT100.

  16. I wish I could actually grade this product, but unfortunately I can only travel to 4 Targets to find nothing. Yet I see people on Ebay selling 55, 50, 45 Box Lots marked up like crazy. This is a MAJOR problem. I actually asked one of the Sellers how he got so many and he said “I have 10 Targets within 30 miles of my house and have a flexible schedule. Phone is a powerful tool.” Thats total BS. I went into total CSI Dork Mode, and found maybe 2 Targets near where this guy lives. There is a flaw in the distribution channels. Now I’m not saying this is like The Lufthansa Heist, but it is becoming a yearly thing. In my opinion, we need someone like Trey to step up and make Topps aware of this. Its just not cool.

  17. I certainly understand the frustration with a system that is not transparent and can be abused. The reality is that retail distribution is more problematic because Topps has virtually no control once the distribution outfit has the cards. This is not new information for Topps as people complain after nearly every set release. Normally, patience wins out as eBay box prices drop or more boxes show up in stores unless the supply is very limited.

  18. I find it interesting that the International Affair cards are not labeled with the ‘Topps Chrome’ logo. Maybe I’m the only one. Seems odd.

  19. My Target just re-loaded. Boxes are on sale for $17.99. Value packs are on sale for $8.99. I bought 2 of each and there is/was plenty left for others. I thought about buying it all but I did not want to screw over my fellow collectors just to make a few bucks.

  20. Just by chance I had to run to the next town over 25 miles away and passed a Target so I stopped by and I hit the jackpot with 7 boxes and I swooped ’em up. Better yet they were only $17.99 ea on sale!! Finally I got lucky!
