While it's not about the high-end hits, 2013 Topps Series 1 Baseball is delivering some very strong cards. Kicking off the new collecting year, packs are flying fast and furiously. Collectors and dealers are uncovering some attractive cards. And while things numbered between 50 and 100 may not seem like a big deal in other sets, it's a huge deal here.
One of the most widely collected sets of the year, the print run isn't exactly limited. For those lucky enough to pull a high-end autograph, patch or manufactured relic like Proven Mettle, sales can be very strong. Even things like the Out of Bounds short print variations can bring solid returns from packs that cost a couple of dollars each.
Besides tradition, 2013 Topps Series 1 Baseball appeals to just about every type of collector. Whether you're a set builder, team collector, player collector or just a casual collector grabbing a couple packs while you grab some milk from Target, the release has something for all.
With so much opened so quickly, some of the set's more desirable cards are making their way to the market and drawing plenty of attention from collectors.
