I guess I just don't see the high end aspect of this product. Kris Bryant 1 / 1 auto. Ok, not really all that special since they're guaranteed. Mike Trout autos...alright, so a few hundred bucks? Where do you make up the 27K you're spending? Even if you got the Ruth or the George Washington, there's still about a 15K hole to climb out of.

Are there really 65 people that can and will drop 27k on this? I don't follow current card trends and manfactured scarcity is debatable at best for investment purposes but this just seems crazy to me.

Oh wait. Know I see you get a stainless steel briefcase with it too. Disregard my previous statements.

Nope, Aluminum. Which means it will get scuffed pretty easily sliding it in and out of a bookshelf.


Am I the only one that thinks the cards themselves are really ugly?

The briefcase is polished aluminum. With the Topps logo it has to be worth the 27K and the garbage new shiny cards are just a bonus.

Here's how Topps celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1975, with retro MVP cards for each years. As a kid those cards got me interested in the 50s and 60s cards. They were a lot of fun and only 15 cents a pack. I would even rather have the brittle gum than the aluminum case.

Ridiculous. For 27K they should upgrade that polished aluminum POS for the Multi-Threat Shield bulletproof briefcase, and really protect those valuable cards :

If one of these packs had a 5k price tag I would have felt it was over priced. For 27k they should have included some vintage buy backs. A chance to hit a 52 Mantle, 54 Aaron, etc. Like someone else said if you guaranteed me I would hit the Ruth cut auto I still think I would pass.

I'd be willingly to bet they sell out rather quickly, but I'd guess only a dozen or so would be opened by single collectors. The vast majority will be opened in group breaks, which even at single drafts or randoms would be less than $200 a spot. I could see base of the superstars going near that range especially near release. It's a gaudy price tag, but in the end we all collect pictures of baseball players so to each their own.

They really should just call it High End Redundancy Series 27 at this point.

Oh, I think they will sell out fairly quickly.

Last night's WS finale had at least 30 people seated behind the Cubs dugout who paid more than 10K each for a single ticket...of course, that experience has to have been WAY more valuable than anything that can fit in a single briefcase.

The point being - there are still folks 'out there' who have money to burn and are very willing to spend it - and they live in their own version of reality and have their own set of values.

We, the other, 99%, should be happy we are not so 'lucky'.

You guys are missing the point. I did too when I first saw it.

Topps is starting to shift toward breakers. This is geared toward breakers. 168 cards, plus a case, plus a ticket to a party = 170 spots. About $160 a spot. For $160 you can gamble that you get a 1/1 Bryant auto, or a sick cut auto. At WORST you get a replica sketch card #/65 - which, given the low numbering from a high dollar product, will still leave you with at least some kind of ROI, even if it's only $20. Plenty of people bring several hundred dollars to a poker table. This is that. Pure gambling. It's not intended for multiple people to break on their own and cover the price.

Who wants to front the 27k for a net54 break? I'm in for a spot or two.

UPDATE:
SOLD OUT!!!!!
Quote:
Only 65 sets were made by Topps, and they’ve already sold out on the company’s website. If you absolutely need to own the 2016 Topps Transcendent Collection, you’re going to have to turn to secondary markets, and we cringe just thinking about how much the price will be jacked up there.
DONT WORRY--- There are SET BREAKS Happening, check these out for 150-200 a pop(that are sold out)
http://baseballfiresale.com/


There was more to this than we thought---
Quote:
buying this set of cards means you get to hang out with Bryant in Vegas for a Topps event on Jan. 18. Topps will cover hotel accommodations, dinner, cocktails and will provide other giveaways during the party. Each box comes with one invite to that event
Heres the UPDATED ARTICLE-- WITH PICS!!!!

Quite possibly, but it's hard to imagine, those that put down that kind of money, will ever lose out. We shall see, I suppose.
