eBay Product Search: 2010 Topps Series 1 Baseball Hobby Box
Time Frame: February 1, 2010 (1 Week After Going Live)
Average Online Price: $60.00 Per 36 Pack Box
This year Topps has exclusive rights to MLB baseball cards. Upper Deck and others will still take their shots but Topps will be the real deal. I expect baseball collectors to unite around Topps and make it the leading brand, making each set highly collectible.
Who knows what surprises Topps has in store as I’m sure some cards on the Checklist will be SP or rare. I think a set like this can go either way. If the Jumbo Box Version sells better on eBay than 36 Pack boxes might not blow up as much.
However if 2009 was any kind of sign, I think 2010 will pop right off the bat. I think we’re looking at $65 – $70.00 as the average price paid when the cards go live in late January 2010.
Our Prediction: 10% (About $6 Per Box Increase)
