Hot in the Shop – Week of August 29th, 2016 – Ultimate – These are the “dog days” of summer. That period of time when kids are starting to return to school, MLB pennant races heat up and all of America waits for the return of NFL football. It’s also a time in the hobby following a flurry of releases in the previous month, where things slow down before the start of the fiscal fourth quarter. The numerous trading card releases over the previous weeks will have some additional time to breathe.
What the past two weeks have lacked in quantity have been more than made up for in quality. That trend continues this week with the annual debut of a few collector favorites. Here is a look at what will be Hot in the Shop for the Week of August 29th, 2016.
