Year 2 NOW


The Pirates got card #1 again with this Tyler Glasnow.  I wasn't even aware Topps was producing individual Spring Training NOW cards. I knew about the team sets and I figured they would go all in on the World Baseball Classic (which they have).  Thankfully a friend of mine gave me a heads up when this Glasnow went live.  I would have missed it for sure.  

I plan on experimenting with different ways of getting the Pirate releases.  I'll continue with eBay for the most part, but I may purposefully let a few go and see how much I can find them for a couple months down the road or even after the season.  I noticed several of the non rookies only selling for a few bucks on eBay. We'll see how this plays out. 

Hope everyone is enjoying March Madness.  WVU punched their Sweet Sixteen ticket this afternoon! Looking like we will have a date with Gonzaga. 

Thanks for reading.

  1. Not sure if you use COMC but I've seen a lot of last year's on there for $5 or less, like you said if you're willing to risk waiting it out you can usually get them a lot cheaper down the line. I went all in last year but going to try to resist that temptation in 2017, we'll see how I do. Either way, nice card!

    1. I was thinking about seeing if there were any Jays on COMC from last year...

    2. From what I've seen I think I'm leaning towards buying all the rookies when they are released and getting the star cards down the road. My hope is that Topps notices this trend to and gives better incentives to buy direct.

    3. Also you are right about resisting the temptation....it is hard.

  2. I haven't even thought about Topps Now.. Nothing noteworthy Jays/Canadians wise has happened and Team Canada couldn't do a thing in the WBC..

    1. I haven't bought any of the non Pirates yet. I'm tempted to get the Marte and polanco WBC cards. Hoping some people on eBay break up the sets.

  3. I avoided Topps Now all last year...but I just bought my first one from them. Couldn't pass on that sweet Adam Jones WBC catch.

    1. That Jones card might be the best one ever.
