2015 Topps Baseball Factory Set Parallels

Recently, Topps released the annual offering for this year's flagship base set -- 2015 Topps Baseball Factory Sets. This year, the set has 700 cards which comprise of both Series One and Series Two. Every year here recently, Topps has included five special cards that can only be found in these factory sets. These cards are very limited and this year they are numbered to just 179 copies. Some of these cards command some pretty serious coin as you are about to find out.

Every year, I buy a factory set for my son and basically put it on a shelf for him until he gets older. I have been doing this since he was born in 2012. I don't open them -- I will let him decide what to do with them when the time comes. I also buy two more factory sets for a friend of mine who basically is doing the same thing for his kids (he pays me back --I am not THAT nice). He keeps one of them sealed and he opens the other one. Each year, he opens the five card pack inside and shows me what he got. In 2015, this is what he received:

2015 Topps Factory Parallel #211 Clay Buchholz 004/179
2015 Topps Factory Parallel #244 Bartolo Colon 121/179
2015 Topps Factory Parallel #316 R.A. Dickey 064/179
2015 Topps Factory Parallel #411 Nelson Cruz 130/179
2015 Topps Factory Parallel #489 Jeremy Hellickson 008/179

The parallel cards he received out of his set were average and probably would not sell for a bunch if he chose to sell them.  However, he probably could get some of his money back if he did.   But what if he got a very popular card like a Mike Trout, Derek Jeter, or Kris Bryant???  Well, if he were to get one of those, he would have been extremely happy. Check out some of the prices these cards have sold for recently...

So as you can see, it is tempting to open up factory sets for a chance to get one of the most expensive cards in the set.  It is my hopes that more people will open their factory sets to dry up the supply of them.  Then maybe by the time my son is ready for college, he can choose to sell his for a nice sum if he so chooses.
