2018 Topps Brooklyn Collection - The Lone Dodger Card

As you may know, several weeks back Topps introduced their 582 Montgomery Club to the collecting masses. It had been billed as an exclusive membership program that offers products inspired by their early days in Brooklyn. You get a handful of exclusive sets and an opportunity to buy exclusive new brands direct from Topps. Initial membership cost $199.99 and sold out rather quickly. I do not know how many members are in this initial group. BTW, I did not join these ranks.

We have not yet seen any of the sets included with membership online, but we do know of the very first exclusive brand made available to its members. Featured above is a box of 2018 The Brooklyn Collection cards that sold for (I believe) $1000 a box of five autographed cards -- the designs of which are based on "recently recovered, lost Topps designs." Below are examples of the two designs in the set. Go here for a complete checklist.

As for Dodgers available in this set, only one player is available - Sandy Koufax. There's no Kershaw, no Bellinger and no Seager. Of the 105 cards available there is only one. Worse yet, Koufax collectors will only find a redemption card in boxes. See one of them below. As soon as I am able, I will update this post with the actual card when it is released.
