Default Topps Now - Topps Living Set

I just saw that Topps Now is going to be making a Living Set. It is going to be based on the 1953 Baseball Card design. They say that is going to span all era's with only one card per player ever released, with the exception of modern players, only if they change teams. The first cards look great and have artwork by Mayumi Seto. Just wondering what you guys think of the idea and if anyone else is ordering?

Given that there are reports of Topps being shopped by it's various owing entities, this could be a short lived thing. Is that good or bad if it happens in terms of this set, I don't really know.

I ordered the first set of three and will try to continue ordering as $ allows.

One question I have is since they stated that no player will be issued more than once unless they change teams, will the card number for each card be the same or different like a 1 and 1A type of thing?

It will be interesting to see how long this continues with or without a Topps sale.

Topps Living Set ( 3 cards per week @ $15) At $5 / card after one year you will have a set of 150 cards for $ 750. Will it be worth it ? Any opinions ?

I did that quick math and realized the answer is "no" which means if you have $750 to plunk down each year on randoms, then you will be one of like 10 OCD people in the world with enough cash to have a set, if you go for it.

It will be worth $500k in 25 years because of that.

Default Topps Living Set

Thank you all for the input. I had ordered three of the first set , one too keep in my PC and the other two for speculation. I figured with the Judge card alone it should hopefully make up for the cost in a couple of years, if he keeps up his pace and as newer collectors discover the set. I only ordered one of the second set, mainly for the Rhys Hoskins card. I will most likely only order future sets based on the player selection... Looking on ebay there doesn't appear like there is going to be a shortage of the first set of cards as some sellers have 100+ available. But down the road a bit some lesser players may be in demand as their playing improves and dealers drop off buying 100+ sets with no big names in them. Just my 2 cents... only time will tell.

It seems like a great idea for Topps.

Will “All Things Topps” Al chime in?

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

If you want a set to keep for yourself it would probably be best to order 3 sets each week and sell off the other 2 and that would make collecting the set affordable. Maybe ???

I think a living set should involve cards that when you spit on them a 3d image of the player grows out of it
