    2018 Topps Fire

    So, at lunch I decide to run to Target to get a loaf of bread. I had to stop and check the cards, even though my local store rarely has anything good.

    Well apparently they stocked the card section today. I didn't even know they were doing Topps Fire again this year.

    I can't go to target either without stopping at the cards.

    I can not find anything about this set. No checklist, nothing.

    So Topps released a set without any announcement, fanfare, checklist, or anything? Huh. This strikes me like one of those "let's go against the grain" marketing tactics, probably generated by a focus group in a conference room.

    No idea if it's true, but supposedly Topps has a requirement to release so many sets a year, so this is probably one they just throw out there to meet the requirement. And all this time I figured they were just trying to milk every cent out of the market.
    Looking for 2011 Topps Marquee Museum autographs, rare Frank Thomases, and any Grady Sizemores I don't have

    I agree not the best looking set.

    Looks like there are at least 8 parallels (Flame, Gold, Orange /299, Green /199, Purple /99, Magenta /25, Onyx/10? & Inferno/1?) There are also auto's, relics and inserts that pretty much have the same parallels.

    Gold Sisco, Flame Bell, Green Judge 103/199, Orange Longoria 125/299 and a base relic of Francisco Mejia.

    This set is a typical project that they give to summer interns.

    Last year's Fire was a huge seller on Sportlots for me, at one point the base Judges were going for $12 each. One of my semi-local Targets had it, bought a bunch, and I think it might be another winner. The designs may be questionable, but at least Topps did something besides rehash the clichéd 1952 design for the thousandth time.
