2019 Topps Gold Label Review


Topps Gold Label is pretty much a one-card-per-pack type of product as each box comes with one very nice looking autographed card. But to mix it up a little, Topps also throws in some nice base cards to give collectors a few more packs to open. The pack with the special gold framed autographed card sticks out like a sore thumb when opening the box... so be careful not to purchase packs of this on the secondary market (unless they are dirt cheap).

Product Thoughts
Gold Label is a beautiful set. It combines tastefully done gold foil with some amazing holofoil to create a truly modern masterpiece of a card. Each card contains two images that go well together. The cards don't look crowded. I'm really impressed by whoever designed these cards as they are extremely well balanced - not something easy to do given all the elements in play here.


I'm not a huge fan of the base packs that come with Gold Label, but they do contain parallel cards that have individual numbering. These parallel cards give the product a little more life, but I don't recall Gold Label parallel cards as anything people were really clamoring over. So while they are nice, I just don't see a huge demand for them after a couple weeks of release.


Gold Label also institutes a class system for the base cards. This tiered base card system has been done in the past, but I don't think it has ever really been that popular. I just think the base cards are so insignificant that nobody cares if a card is class 1, 2, or 3. In fact, the foil makes it hard to tell what class you have exactly unless you put the card at the perfect viewing angle.


By far and away the best thing about Gold Label are the framed autographed cards. To me, Topps should shave done away with the other cards and just put one of these per box. These cards look absolutely amazing with their heavy gold borders. The on-card autograph also shines on these cards. I'd say that design-wise, these cards are worth the price of admission.

Positives:
  • The gold border cards are extremely nice looking.
  • A box is relatively inexpensive with a release price of around $60.
  • On-card autographs.
Negatives:
  • I have seen a lot of terrible players come out of breaks.
  • The base cards, while nice, are pretty much an afterthought.
  • Confusing tiered system for the base cards.

Overall Rating:

7.5/10

  8. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

    He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
