The Joy of Two Completed Insert Sets - 2019 Topps Series 1 Greatness Returns and Topps Now Preview

I have more 2019 Topps Series 1 insert sets to share, I am going for two again in this post.  First up is the Greatness Returns 25 card insert set and the Topps Now Preview 10 card insert set.

The Greatness Returns set features a pair of players on the front that are connected in some way.  Many are from the same team but different eras while a few are connected by similarity in their game.  The Topps Now Preview insert set consists of 10 cards and is pretty much a waste in my opinion.  They are ad cards for the Topps Now online card offerings that are put out daily by Topps during the season.  If I hadn't pulled half the cards and got the rest for under a quarter each, I probably wouldn't have put together the set.

Once again I will share the fronts of all 25 Greatness Returns cards and the back of card #1 in the set then let the scans do the talking:

Same with the Topps Now set, all the fronts and the back of #1.

I enjoy the concept of the Greatness Returns set and think Topps did a decent job of executing, I think my views on the Topps Now set were clear above.

These are the last 2 insert sets I put together in 2019 Topps Series 1.  If you are interested in a look back at other sets I have shared from 2019 Topps Series 1 you can link here:

  1. My interest in Topps inserts has cooled off in recent years, but I see a few cards in this set that I'll hopefully stumble across in a dime box one day. I think the Ichiro/Ohtani is my favorite.
