I don't normally have a lot of success when it comes to pulling big hits with Update, so let's see if that changed in 2018...
The base card design is the same as the first two series. The checklist is 300 cards and comes with lots of rookies including the top ones.
There are also many subsets
including one of my favorites ever. This is like David and Goliath here.
And even a Rally Goose!
Also just like with the first two series and most Topps products, there are base card variations.
Once again you will have to go blind to find the CMP code to find if you have one. I wished they had done what they did with Heritage Minors and had it written out on the bottom of the card identifying it.
CMP codes that end in...
90 are base
I found a 1:45 pack pull of an Sp in
THE MAN, Derek Jeter!
Also like the first two series, there are parallels to be had.Gold must be only one-per-box as that's all I found vs the Foil that fell 1:10 packs.
Now onto the inserts. There are many to find.
Inserts may have the following parallels, Blue, Black /299, Gold /50, Red /10, and Platinum 1/1.
StoryBook Endings. Those players that ended with great finales. There are 10 cards in the set to collect.
It's not a blur you see, it's these fast base runners in Don't Blink! There are 25 cards to collect in this set.
Celebrating 1983 again, there are 50 cards to find in this set.
And Topps Salute, there are 50 cards as well to collect.
Finally, at least for hobby, there is An International Affair. There are 50 cards of these to find as well.
Keep in mind, there are also retail only inserts to chase from Walmart and Target.
Now onto the hit.
I always, ALWAYS pull a relic from Topps Update and the flagships too. I expect 9 times out of 10 you will too. My find was at least a Yankee and an All Star Game swatch.

For me, this product is a retail buy only. I am usually pretty satisfied just from that and I get a relic that way as well. I have also seen some incredible autographs being pulled from retail too.
