First Buzz: 2018 Topps Brooklyn Collection baseball cards

What: 2018 Topps Brooklyn Collection
Arrives: TBD
Box basics: Five on-card autographs "featured on recently discovered lost Topps designs."

What's buzz-worthy: Members of 582 Montgomery Club have received their invites to buy their super-premium box as part of their subscription -- and they have to decide by tomorrow at 5 p.m. Eastern, according to an email sent to members.

Keep reading for more info as well as a full gallery of images.

 

The Basics: A maximum of 1,000 boxes will be made and they will all be $1,000 apiece with cards using two different designs that were unearthed. There will be at least 50 players per design and each will be numbered to just 25 copies per card unless there's a parallel involved. Each will have Red (/15), Black (/10), Purple (/5) and 1/1 Platinum versions. Not all players will appear on both designs but many are on both. While you can see a full checklist for both below, it's a stacked lineup of past and present stars that includes Aaron Judge, Bryce Harper, Bo Jackson, Chipper Jones, Derek Jeter, Hank Aaron, Juan Soto, Kris Bryant, Mariano Rivera, Mike Trout, Nolan Ryan, Ronald Acuña Jr., Sandy Koufax and Shohei Ohtani to name a few. There are 50 players on Design 1 and 55 players on Design 2. ... No images were released for this one other then the Mike Trout card seen above that was part of teasers for the 582 program. Members of the Club have not yet received anything but will get a 25-card set that includes an autographed card in three-to-four weeks.

Update: Topps has released the looks for the two designs -- added to gallery below (Trout and Jeter are Design 1, Torres Design 2) -- and revealed that they will be printed on 72-point stock with "Type 4 Crown 210 Gold Foil."
