2018 Topps Gallery Hanger Pack

 Topps brings back Gallery as a Wal-Mart Exclusive once again this year. 
Over all the art quality is pretty good. Topps uses a small stable of artist for this set and you can see that is the slightly different quality and style between the cards.  It's hard to see but the base cards have a textured border.  I ended up splurging on a hanger pack the other day.  The hanger packs feature 2 canvas/wood border parallels. Let's have a look at what I got.
 For current players Topps offers just the 2017 stats broken out by month.  I do like that the artist the produced the card is clearly listed on all the cards.

 I'm not sure why Topps would call these canvas parallels as they clear look like wood grain.

 I also pulled on insert, a Heritage insert of McCutchen in Giants uniform.

Personally, I think the artist's work is much better this year. There's only one card you've shown where it looks "off" to me.

Not my favorite Gallery set... but I do enjoy the portraits with the sky backgrounds. And the Cutch insert is really cool.

Good looking cards. Wish I'd pulled a retired great. Good cards and post.

Just not feeling this set, similar to last year. One issue I have with it is it is overloaded with rookies. They don't seem to work in a set like this. Seems like a set for veterans and Hall of Famers.
