You can find them in packs. You can find them as 5x7s. You can find them as posters. You can find them as 1/1s.
What are they? They’re 2016 Topps MLB Wacky Packages and they arrived on Wednesday in all of those formats via the typical hobby channels or via Topps.com for larger sizes.
Rather than re-hash the details (which you can find on The Buzz with a search), here’s a look at many of the pieces from the product.
The newest Wacky Packages release from Topps is one that pokes fun at Major League Baseball while also bringing some new looks at its biggest stars.
You know, its mascots.
Beyond the 90 MLB-spoofing stickers in 2016 Topps MLB Wacky Packages (click here for our First Buzz preview from October), there are autographs from five notable mascots, five big-leaguers and a selection of Relics from two different areas of the game.
What: 2016 Topps MLB Wacky Packages
Arrives: March 9
Hobby box basics: Hobby Collector boxes include 14 six-card packs with one auto sketch or Relic, while Hobby boxes will include 24 10-card packs.
What’s buzz-worthy: What happens when you take the twisted takes of Wacky Packages and add Major League Baseball? Well, we’ll soon find out with this one with parody cards of products (the traditional for the long-running card brand) along with twists on baseball’s teams (major and minor), food and events. What makes this one a draw for baseball fans? Autographed cards of players and team mascots — though no checklists for those were revealed by the company.
