I read a few reviews on this set, and they've been mixed. Since I was in Target recently and their were only 2 packs left, I decided to grab one.
My personal opinion - They're OK. I find the designs a little too "busy" and most of the cards just look off, but there are some gems in here. As usual, I'll highlight my 3 favorites:
|2017 Topps Fire #121 Cody Bellinger (RC)|
If you're only going to buy one pack of a product, getting a rookie card of one of the premiere rookies from this season is definitely a good pull. This is one of the examples of the color scheme really meshing well all around on a card. The use of grey for the player is excellently used here.
|2017 Topps Fire - Golden Grabs Blue Chip #GG1 Anthony Rizzo|
This is digitally created artwork. Amazing card.
|2017 Topps Fire - Orange #49 Bo Jackson|
The base set "lightning cards" are not really that impressive. Throw some foil on there, however, and these cards transform! The lightning shimmers and practically crackles in your hand. I bet this is what the graphic designers had in mind when making these cards.
