Topps has added to their portfolio with more factory set parallels.
In the past there used to be red parallels, but that parallel was given to Target with an exclusive in 2012. Then Topps used orange factory set parallels beginning in 2012 until 2016. In 2017 Topps introduced foilboard parallels that were serially numbered and available as a limited pack inside their factory sets.
Then 2020 happened and everything got confusing and screwed up.
There are now 6 (yes six) parallels to chase in factory sets.
Topps introduced the Walmart Green box factory sets this year which could contain complete factory sets in a number of 4 different parallels.
The most common is the gold star (1 in 3 factory boxes will have a complete set with the gold star). The others include (non serial numbered) print runs of 299 (blue) and 99 (orange). There is also a 1/1 complete set, but to my knowledge that hasn't surfaced yet.
Inside the retail factory sets are Foilboard card packs with a pack of 5 cards each serial numbered to 264 copies.
The hobby foilboards packs are similar looking and limited to 229 copies.
Below are the 4 parallels I have so far.
Only the foilboard is serially numbered on the back. It has a print run of 229 copies.
I still need the foilboard numbered to 264 copies which is a retail exclusive.
Have you bought any of these Walmart Green box factory sets? Did you open it to see if you had a parallel set?
