2020 Topps Clearly Authentic Review


Topps Clearly Authentic is an acetate based set that comes encased and sealed by Topps. The cards come in a one-card-per-pack format and will cost you between $60-70 at release. It follows products like Topps Signature Archives, but with a more modern feel. What's the best way to purchase this product? I weigh in on it in my review.

Product Thoughts
The Clearly Authentic cards have a very nice look to them as they follow the design of the flagship Topps set. This is a smart idea by Topps as it almost makes these cards a parallel to the base cards and provides a strong connection to the main brand. The on-card nature of the autographs of these cards are another great selling point. With a different photo and ink, these cards look really great and outshines the Archive Signature product that Topps has. Add in the fact that there are also colored parallels and you have a set that many collectors will enjoy ripping into.

At around $60-70, the question comes into mind if boxes are worth buying. For the vast majority of boxes, the card you pull will not be worth anywhere near the amount paid for it. I pulled the Jesus Luzardo card above. I like this card quite a bit, but I could pick it up for much cheaper as a single on the secondary market. If you're looking for the really big names, then it may be worth the gamble to pick up a few boxes and try your luck. But if you're a team collector or someone who collects a player that doesn't have staggering secondary market values, it's a much wiser decision to just purchase the single that you want. A VAST majority of the time you're better off just doing that.

Positives:
  • The card designs look excellent.
  • Many parallels to find in the product.
  • On-card autographs are great.
Negatives:
  • Hit or miss product.
  • Might as well buy the one you want as a single.
  • One-card-per-pack is not everyone's cup of tea.

Overall Rating:

8/10

  2. I'm an A's fan, but even I would have been bummed to pull Luzardo. He could end up being a really talented pitcher. Hopefully this pull looks awesome a few years from now.

  3. My name is Sarah I am really pleased with this service. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr.Ebhoi. I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Franklin in one of our stupid fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything I cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.I read a testimony by a man called Chris Holden about him saying that how Dr.Ebhoi help him to get back is EX wife within 48 hours. I quickly email him and also get back my husband with his love spell and when I was at my most desperate he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it or how this magic works, but all I know is... IT WORKS!! Franklin my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr.Ebhoi email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help contact him now (ebhoisolution@gmail.com) thank you..

  5. I was married for 13 years. My marriage has been deteriorating for some time so it was bound to unravel. I was her loyal, faithful supportive and trusting Husband. She had an additional wild side that went out of control. The last incident was when I found out that she was having an affair 2 weeks before our 14th wedding anniversary. Out of the blue my wife just sprung the divorce talk on me. I was so hurt and being a man, I thought I could cope with being single. It was so hard to move on so i had to reach out for help online. Our marriage and family therapists thought that "something" was not right about my wife. I went online and i found out about Dr Ogweshan and his good spell work reviews. I contacted him and explained my situation to him and he told me not worry that my wife will come back to me after 3 days. 3 days later in the morning around 09:34am I was totally shocked on how my wife called me telling me how much she missed me. His spell worked on me so fast and my wife has been so loving, Natural and I'm having a happy marriage after using his love spell. If you are in a loveless and unhappy marriage that cannot be salvaged, believe me...There is light at the end of this tunnel. You can reach him on his contact details.
