If you are interested in trading cards, you may have heard about some huge recent sales of Formula One (also know as F1) cards, one of the hottest up and coming categories in the hobby in quite some time.
Sparked by popular the Netflix series, "Formula 1: Drive to Survive", as well as the hobby's continuing expansion of interest in alternative sports outside of traditional mainstream American culture, it appears that the future is bright for both the sport and collectibles of its most popular drivers.
Unlike the big three sports (football, basketball and baseball) with tons of products, different sets and manufacturers, it isn't easy to find vintage cards of F1 legends such as Michael Schumacher or Ayrton Senna. Populations are low and prices are high, but there are opportunities out there if you know what to look for.
For modern drivers, it has become much easier after F1 signed an exclusive license with Topps in September of 2020 to create their first licensed trading cards and stickers. The recent releases of 2020 Topps Chrome, 2020 Topps Chrome Sapphire and 2020 Topps Dynasty have been on fire, as you will see in the list below.
