Topps is a joke, what a terrible looking baseball card. Looks like they're producing the same crap they have been for quite some time now.

I loved collecting cards...if I buy a pack, I usually just buy a box...easier that way and lowers the cost per pack.

Other than that, I usually try to buy individual cards (usually older)....mainly for sentimental value even if they aren't in good shape. Got a 1967 Gibson and 1954? Drysdale for $20...couldn't pass it up.

Topps Co. to join special purposes acquisition company to become a publicly traded stock
https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/312 ... ed-company
The company said Tuesday that it will become a publicly traded company this year by tying up with a blank-check company, or SPAC, a special purposes acquisition company.

Topps, for anyone who has not opened the shoebox of trading cards in the attic in a while, has greatly expanded from its Bazooka gum days and is pushing into digital sales, apps, crypto currency and even NFTs, or non-fungible tokens.

Its subject matter has expanded to, among other things, comics, professional wrestling, Formula 1, and film (Godzilla NFTs now on sale!).

Topps Co. said Tuesday that it will merge with Mudrick Capital Acquisition Corp., which will make a $250 million investment.

I'm surprised Topps hasn't converted entirely to NFTs. You know, for kids!
