I think it's pretty cool of Topps to have an online only product. It really varies the releases that they have. Like Topps Fire, being only available in a certain place makes for a fun collecting experience. For a guaranteed autograph, I think $25 isn't too much of an ask. The autographs look great and they are on-card. As for the rest of the cards, they have a no-nonsense look to them with white borders. The players themselves are just standing around for the most part at training facilities. It's kind of a funny look to me, but works for the name of the product.
Some of the boxes will contain these news print looking cards. They document something that happened during a specific moment in a baseball game. These inserts go well with the snapshot/photo theme of the set. These cards don't look particularly impressive. Upper Deck did a similar look many years back in hockey and they were much better looking as Upper Deck went with a very vintage design with yellowing paper.
What I really like in these boxes are the hand-numbered parallels that can be found. I'm a big fan of hand-numbering for some reason and I think they look great. Whoever writes the numbering down has some really awesome handwriting. I always wonder what happens if they mess up some how. I mean, they can't do every card perfectly can they? Will we ever know? Only Topps can tell.
