    Topps Series II Dead?

    I mostly buy singles on eBay and very little Series II has hit for my guy, Marwin Gonzalez. Is anyone else seeing a lack of their guy or has Marwin just avoided the breakers so far?

    I saw one Blue, two Pinks, and two Camos of my player in Series 1.


    That's 5 of 125 cards.

    Very little of my guy either. What is out there is way over priced.

    I'm not even seeing many BASE cards listed of Marwin. It's weird.

    I haven't seem much of the low-end inserts either.

    I think most people nowadays send that type of stuff to COMC and it takes longer to process their incoming orders, so it won't show up til later...

    I still have seen next to nothing from Series II for Marwin. Not on eBay, COMC, Sportslots, anywhere.

    Just a lack of luck having people pull his stuff or is Series II not doing well?

    make the price reasonable and I'll buy a couple of boxes. Since Judge should be overexposed in the product, the price may never get reasonable and I'll have to end up buying a h/c set instead of building one.

    I tend to think it's market forces. $70+/36pk box for basic Topps flagship is crazy, IMHO. If it was the back burner of the back burner of the back burner, you'd think the price of the box would drop to move the product off the shelves but I guess dealers are content to keep it on their shelves at $70 since Judge is in it.

    Another reason: There's no "official" Aaron Judge rookie card on that series

    I finally found a Marwin parallel and might have the answer to why nothing is popping up on eBay. This is the Father's Day parallel. Anyone see the issue?



    The picture makes it VERY difficult to see the blue. I'm wondering if the other parallels are equally faint on the Marwin cards.
