Topps Has a Surprise For Collectors in the 2017 Transcendent Collection Party Aaron Judge Topps History Set.

Earlier Topps announced that it would be providing a set of Aaron Judge cards, based on the 1/1 Topps History autograph card found in cases of 2017 Topps Transcendent, to collectors with invites to the Hank Aaron Transcendent Collection Party in Atlanta. That 87 card set has a print run of #/87.

We already covered this set, and how much we thought it would sell for on the aftermarket in our article “Bold Prediction About the 2017 Topps Transcendent Collection Party Topps History Aaron Judge Card Set”  With just early pre-sales, this set is pacing to sell at $9,759.64 on average. But a new development could kick that number up substantially.

What was not made official until collectors started looking at those sets is each set contains one card that is a 1/1 Aaron Judge relic card.

 Relic 1/1                               Card #/87

It seems these cards also have MLB Authentications stickers to ID which piece of Memorablia was used as the relic swatch. 

For example the 1992 Topps History card pictured above leads to this Authentication identification.

It’s a swatch from a Aaron Judge game used jersey worn 6/12/17 and 6/16/17 and that leads to another level of verification seen here.

Judge hit a Home Run both times he wore this jersey. How cool is that?!?

  1. And to think I was excited to just add my very first Flagship rookie card of the man this past weekend to my collection. Can't imagine how it must feel to add one of those relics to the collection.
