I've been tempted by a few of these - most I think are actually pretty ugly but I like a few of the '89 Griffey Topps Traded renditions. What bothers me is actually the total number of cards and variations - wish they had just picked only the top 1 or 2 of each card rather than 20 different options leading to 400 total cards. It is way too much. Also think I read they print on demand based on sales not a predetermined number of cards released to be sold - which is lame from a scarcity driving investment standpoint.

I am not usually in to this type of card but so far I am hooked. The images donít really do justice to the cards as some of the artists do things with textures and raised effects that donít come through until the card is in hand. I do agree that you really have to either go after one artist or one player or things would get out of hand. I am posting in the pre1980 section my quest for all of the 1952 Jackieís to complement my real 52 Jackie

Iíve been picking up Ben Ballerís cards as I find him funny and like the designs. I had to sell his Ichiro when I saw what they were going for (probably let go of it a little too soon but couldnít pass up a $400 profit) but Iíll hold on to some of the others for the time being. I love them but donít get the secondary market demand for these things since they were unlimited and easily accessible from the source.

Was there a certain timeframe to buy these, like a week?

The Topps Now and Living Set use the same business model, I like it. The cards that are worth a lot are not always the obvious suspects. I'm not real familiar with the Project, it seems like they are going after a different market.

I admit they do run the gambit between ugly and awesome. Unfortunately the ones I would like to add are the same it seems most would at amazing profits. I donít think I will be buying many at secondary market prices but I have started watching the releases on the topps site.

I think the ball was dropped in two places though to make them much better. The backs are terrible and should have more thought. Also, the artist proofs are a giant fail for retaining value long run. Without having the artist sign the 20 copies, I see little to justify the value after the excitement leaves years from now. They left an opportunity to have a cool collectible like the signed Peter Max cards on the table.
