    I added 2 Bronze, 1988 and 1989. Nothing big and I won't chase them hard, but will add if price is ok.

    If Jim Thome is included I will buy some of those. Not sure what years are covered.

    I haven't purchased yet but I've made a couple bids on biggios, I would have preferred something new and inventive rather than a stamp on a card I already own but I guess we get what we get

    As always, I can put any STEVE GARVEY cards in a good home if anyone is moving any.

    I'm a big fan of these buybacks, more so than other years. I think it's several factors including foil stamping and not embossing like 2003.

    I think it's that the public relations/marketing part of me thinks that the Rediscover Topps campaign is some pretty solid work on their part.

    The fact that it appears to primarily be 1986-1990 cards, and that was my prime collecting time as a kid, increases the nostalgia factor for me as well.

    Maybe what I like most is I have picked up a couple for my smaller player collections, Billy Beane and Al Newman, guys that I rarely see anything "new" of. Hoping there's a 1992 Topps Scott Stahoviak buyback or several out there somewhere. If anybody has any Beane, Newman, or Stahoviaks, please let me know!

    The prices on the Pucketts seem high to me, but the market is, what the market is. I know there were only a handful of Puckett buybacks in 2015 Topps based on what I've seen/read about it. Seems there are, and will be, more Pucketts this year.

    Anybody have theories on why Topps has not included Puckett as much in newer releases, relative to other guys from that same era that have been featured? Obviously, he can't sign autographs which is probably part of it.

    For whatever reason, I'm a bigger fan of these 10 cent cards turned $25 cards due to a foil stamp, than I am of many of the recent releases. The old stuff still appeals more to me.

    With Pucketts, for now all I've picked up is a poorly listed 1989 Topps All-Star Silver (with notch about the N) for what seems to be below market value.

    Collector of Kirby Puckett cards (1,800+ different, primary focus on Pre-1999 cards), Benj Sampson, Scott Stahoviak, Billy Beane, Al Newman, and Metrodome game/stadium used artifacts.

    @MatthewN I believe Puckett's contract with Topps ran out around the time of his death ad for whatever reason his family never signed a new one. Not sure if Panini signed them to an exculsive deal or if he just got lumped in on their cooperstown deal.

    I want to dislike these, but cannot for some reason. I don't know why, but I love having different variations of the same card. Half of me wants to be a hoarder, but the sensible part of me says "NO Tanner! Only one of each!" So the buybacks help satisfy both sides

    I've added 1 Mark Grace (1990) and 2 Don Zimmer (1990, 1991) so far.

    Who has the low-down on color rarity? I've seen bronze, silver, gold and blue.

    Funny that some glitches have showed up. Really rediscovering Topps with these

    The colors are bronze, silver, gold, blue and red with bronze being the most common and red being the least.

    So far I've got two in hand:
    * '87 Topps - bronze
    * '85 Topps - blue

    And these are incoming
    * '89 Topps - I think it's bronze, but the lighting is a bit dodgy. It could be red, too. Hope so!
    * '87 Topps - gold

    I may have an extra for you Jeremy but I have to check the foil when it comes in. If its a double I will add it to the stuff I have set aside for you.
