While it’s not exactly my cup of tea, 2009 Topps Updates & Highlights has been live for a few days and doing surprisingly well on the secondary market.
Topps’ Updates & Highlights is selling for about $50 dollars online and offers one game-used memorabilia or autograph per box on average.
The best single card sold on eBay so far has been a jersey patch of Albert Pujols. The 4-color relic sold for just under $250 dollars despite not being game-used. It clearly states that it’s an All-Star Workout Jersey.
Proving once again just how rabid Topps set builders are, one 24-card SP Variation set sold for a whopping $379 dollars. That’s 24 cards that lack game-used relics or certified autographs.
Some of the better autographs in ’09 Updates & Highlights include Gordon Beckham, Tommy Hanson, Matt Holliday, Vladimir Guerrero, Rick Porcello, and Andre Ethier. All are stickers, not on-card.
