I like the design well enough though it seems a bit reminiscent of mid to late 2000's Upper Deck. I'll definitely be trying to make it out to my not-so-local card shop to grab a few packs. For a much more detailed account of what to expect, check out this post from Blowout Buzz or this article directly from Topps. To everyone who has a participating shop remotely close to them, let's get out there to show support for this event. Thanks for reading.

National Baseball Card Day Details
It seems like forever since the announcement of Topps' reincarnated National Baseball Card Day back in February. At the time no further details were available. It's even been weeks since the official date was announced with no further details provided. Here we are less than a week removed from the NSCC and finally some real details are trickling out. This Saturday, August 13 is the big day. According to what I can find, collectors can pick up free, 6 card packs from participating hobby shops. The set consists of 49 cards which can be found in packs with a 50th card available with a qualifying purchase. Here is a look at that 'purchase required' card of none other than Kris Bryant.
