What are the odds?

2017 saw Topps release two different products exclusive to retail stores.

Topps Fire could only be found in Target stores and featured graffiti style designs and sticker autographs and color parallels.

In my opinion, Wal Mart got the better exclusive as they received a product released in the past called Topps Gallery.  It was an all art set featuring color parallels, sticker autographs, and actual art cards.  In addition Gallery provided a 1951 Bowman Heritage style set with their own color parallels to chase.

I purchased both the base Orange and recently the 1951 Orange and while inputting them to my spreadsheet I noticed both my Orange parallels are numbered 15/25.

What are the odds?

Below is the base Orange with art by Mayumi Seto

And here is the 1951 Heritage card with artwork by Dan Bergren.
I own the original art by Dan used to produce this card.  To see my post about that art, click here.

  1. If I didn't have a headache, I'd calculate those odd for you. Instead... I'll keep it simple. I agree 100%... Topps Gallery > Topps Fire
