Decision 2016 retail
Topps had an election insert on it's Series 1 sell sheet, but ended up pulling it before release. I personally abhor politics, especially this year, but I love history and politics are a huge part of history so what's a boy to do?
Anyways with Topps deciding to delay or all together cancel any political inserts this year Brian Wallos decided to fill the void. Who's that? You can read all about him and the set on the set's website here. There are some really cool cards to be had in the set and if you love political history then this is right up your alley. Unfortunately all the really cool cards are only found in hobby packs and I picked up a couple retail packs. I have to say the set is done really well. There are 135 base cards in the set, with cards 111-135 being short printed. Mixed into the main checklist are some subsets: The candidates, spouses, influencers, etc. The pack also proudly proclaims that the card are 100% American made, I wonder if that applies to the manurelics as well. Let's see who I pulled.
My only insert is this Candidates Portrait of the Donald.
Overall the set looks great. I like the concept and the over all quality of production is top notch. I'm not a huge fan of dropping a lot of money on sets like this and I'll wait to see if this set hits the bargain bin come November.
