The luster is already off, but apparently buyers aren't getting the message(lol). There are cards at auction with bids higher than the current BIN's on several of the cards.

It will be neat to stay with it and in 10 years the set will be at 1500 cards and growing.

Ichiro is in this week's Living set and the name on the card is "Ichiro Suzuki." He's been listed on Topps cards as simply "Ichiro" for years and now all the sudden he has a surname? So disappointing. He's Ichiro.

I ordered the Ichiro card. Wish the image was better but it's a nice final card.

Ichiro's first Topps RC had his full name and now his final card has it well, fitting bookend to his career.

Yes I thought the spring training gear was strange, and his teeth look gray. Oh well, picking nits here since the whole set is mostly gorgeous.

Default Topps living set

Been ordering from topps
Decided to try ebay for $5 after buying and completing order.
Seller sent me message that I would have to pay $8
because he thought card was going to rare.
Asked for refund very disappointing experience.

Yes he tried the switch and bait.
Was really disappointed ordered for hobby fun but
Felt like getting ripped off. Re order another seller for
$5 see what happens. So ended up spending $10 and a
lot of aggravation . Was thinking about leaving bad feedback.

That guy sounds like a total tool. Sorry you had to deal with that.
