What’s Buzz-worthy: With the first 2018 Topps baseball cards to arrive very soon and this box being a bargain bin find, this collector figured “Why not?” and was rewarded pretty well with the hottest rookie of last summer, Aaron Judge, and plenty more. Bryce Harper is a good find on the manufactured Relic front, too. Want to know more about this one? Check out the links below and a hobby box break here. Last year was a good year for baseball cards thanks to a number of players and this box is just a hint of what was. Here’s to a fun 2018.
