The 2021 Topps Now Formula 1 Racing checklist has grown over time with this print-to-order set, where the total print run is limited to the amount ordered. Highlighting top drivers and teams, the 2021 Topps Now Formula 1 set covers big wins, milestones or other key moments on the track. The image on the front showcases the date and the back digs deeper into the action. Rookies stand out with a themed rookie card (RC) logo.

A new addition to this set is limited parallels numbered to 99 or less and randomly inserted with select cards only. With the immense popularity of F1 and the lack of mainstream cards, several Topps Now Formula 1 cards have proven to be valuable.

Q&A with the set owner

Question: How did you get into collecting sports cards?
Answer: I think it is one of the usual stories: I and one of my best friends both collected as kids and stopped, then started collecting again during the pandemic. I had Frank Thomas and Ken Griffey Jr. as a kid, but they probably ended up in the spokes of a bike.

Question: What are your favorite sports teams and/or athletes to follow?
Answer: I love Frank Thomas and am currently obsessed with Luis Robert and Max Verstappen. That was an amazing season last year.

Question: Do you have a favorite card in your collection?
Answer: The Topps Now Max Verstappen after he won the Monte Carlo, that’s the moment for me.

Question: Is there a card out there you’re hoping to add to your collection?
Answer: I would love to have a Max Verstappen auto card from Flawless or a relic card.

Question: Similarly, is there a set you hope to complete someday?
Answer: Topps Chrome F1 2021 image variation.

Question: What do you enjoy most about adding your cards to the CSG Registry?
Answer: I love how easy it is, and you get the high-res photos; it’s just fun. Because of the points, it lets you see what everyone else is collecting also.

Question: What would you say to other sports cards collectors who may be on the fence about adding their cards to the CSG Registry?
Answer: Most of us have more cards than we have space, so if you want a great way to display your collection, add them to the CSG Registry.
