2016 Topps Update #1-300

Here's the last of my borderless Topps sets with incomplete statistics.  With this post, I've now listed all of my 2016-2017 Topps sets.   

2016 Topps Base Set #1-701

Here's the first Topps set not to contain a border.  More interestingly, it's also the first Topps set to include incomplete statistics on the back since 1971.  It'll also be one of the 1st two sets that I'll be selling from my personal collection.  Although I'd like to blame the incomplete statistics on my reason for selling, it actually has more to do with downsizing than what's on the back of my cards.

2016 Topps Rookie Variation Factory Bonus Set

Rookie variation bonus sets have always been must haves for my collection each year since they started coming out.

2016 Topps New Era Promotional Bonus Set #1-9

Here was a cool set that I had previously integrated into my 2016 Topps baseball set.  It was promoted through New Era hat purchases in 1-card foil packs, I believe.  I could be wrong about the number of cards in a pack because I didn't complete this set through packs.  I purchased the complete set online all at once.

2016 Topps Chicago Cubs World Series Commemorative Set #WS1-WS25

This is a unique kind of set.  The only other similar one that I'm really aware of is the 2005-ish Red Sox Commemorative set, which I do not own.  I found a good enough deal on this one to include it as part of my 2016 Topps set for a time.  I've since pulled it out separately for sale online.

2016 Topps Marketside Wal-Mart set #1-50

I really enjoyed putting this set together.  There were many pizza nights involved with completing this set.  Packs came with 3 cards per box of pizza with 50 total cards in the set.  I got many doubles, which were used for upgrades to ensure this set was the highest grade I could get.

2017 Topps Factory Bonus Sets

I have two of the 2017 Topps Factory Bonus Sets.  The one that I have always been certain to get every year was the rookie variation bonus set.  I also like the All-Star variation bonus set, but I tend to get that one aftermarket if there's a good deal to be had.  Both of these bonus sets from my personal collection are now listed for sale.
