Default 2016 Topps Transcendent

Not sure how many on this site have been tracking this product but over at BO it's been big news for the past 4 weeks. The cases cost $24k each and were #d to /65 in celebration of Topps' 65th anniversary. Each case contained an invitation to the Topps Anniversary Party held in Las Vegas on 1/18 with a special meet and greet with Kris Bryant who was the featured player in the release. Each case also contained a box topper cut auto, a 1/1 Kris Bryant auto with him pictured on a past Topps design, a 1/1 sketch card, a number of autographed cards of HOFers and future HOFers numbered /52, /25, /10, and 1/1. There was also a base set of star cards and sketch cards /65.

Since not many collectors could afford the $24k to buy a case, BO purchased a number of cases and did breaks allowing collectors to pay to be in a lottery of sorts to draft cards they desires. As a Dodgers collector I mostly went after the Dodgers cards and just received them in the mail a couple days ago and am thrilled by them. I love the metal borders on the base and auto cards!

To top it off, apparently the door prizes for the guests in attendance at the anniversary party were pretty nice and now cards that were received are filtering onto ebay over the last couple days with some more nice Bryant cards, some Mike Trout auto'd cards /15 and a slew of 1/1 stamped cards released to only those in attendance. These cards also have a 65th logo stamp on them.

Check out these examples of box toppers cut autos that were pulled:

Those are hideous. Not a single autograph looks like it actually belongs on the card. I'd be pissed if I dropped that much money on a box of cards and pulled one of those. Your autos though are very nice. Do you mind if I ask how much your slots cost? Just trying to see if you were a winner.

That looks like a 12 year old version of a Wagner signature. Saw someone post a Greenberg that must have been juvenile aged, if it was real. That is some pretty crappy looking stuff for such a high end product. That guy who won the Clemente in a break must be dancing now. I assume that was a huge win for him.

That is a lot of scratch for a set of cards, but the base cards are really nice. I PC Reggie Jackson and picked his up on eBay for $25 a few weeks ago.

I agree, the cuts could have been designed better...at least fill the space designated for the cut. But regardless, owning something that scarce is pretty friggin' cool. The break spots were $146. If you hit an auto you made your money back and then some. I doubled my money overall but there were some guys who took a beating. On the flip side, for those who won a 1/1 got a really nice return and with only 173 spots the odds were good.

I've heard some chatter about this product. I thought it seemed pretty cool.

I did two breaks for the fun of it. I had a huge win in one break (over at The Clubhouse on FB...around $175 a slot I think, with some of the money going to St Judes) getting a Bryant /10 parallel and a Pele /25...The one I did on BO, which was far cheaper ($116) I did okay..Henderson /52, Clemente and Clemens base cards. So took a bath on the Clemens hit but overall did pretty well. And that's the extent of my Transcendent adventures.
