2011 Topps Tribute - MLB

6 packs per box // 5 cards per pack
'One Relic or Autographed card #ed to 99 or less in every pack!'

I received the following:

16 premium base cards - no dupes!!:D

Tribute is an ultra premium issue. The cards are highly reflective and printed on very thick stock. The photos are sharp. The lettering is in gold foil - looks great! The reverse has 3-4 highlights of the player's career - no stats.

Inserts

Miguel Cabrera #ed to 24 - dual patch
Pastime Patches

******************

What a box!! Hank Aaron / Cal Ripken / Cabrera dual patch -- excellent pulls!! One can only hope that each box has inserts like this. The autos are all stickers - but the cards are designed for the stickers - embedded - excellent!

The player collector should really like Tribute - base, blue, green, gold, black (#ed to 10) plus 1/1's. I also like the inclusion of the historical players. Baseball, unlike most other sports, is a history laden sport with records most baseball fans can quote - 511, 714, 755, 70, 61, 2131 to name a few.

The set collector might have a small hill to climb - only receiving 16 base - ebay will be your friend.

Overall grade A+ -- maybe an extra pack or two in a box for the set builder...

Go buy several boxes and send the Longoria's and Hamilton's to me!!

Rich

Rich - I really haven't decided yet. The Aaron is selling on ebay for about $125. Haven't checked the Ripken. (just checked - Ripken is going for $50+)

You're the first and will be given first choice.

Very nice! I like the symmetry in the Cabrera patches.

If you're trading, I'd love a shot at the Vlad or Wright (preferably Vlad, but would be interested in either) if available.

Thanks,
Andrew

Interested in the Dean /75, I have an odd fascination with emerald cards, hence the Metal Emerald set I building.

LMK if it becomes available.

Duane, if the Ripken Autograph is not smeared, I would like to buy or trade for it from you to pick up as a Birthday gift.
If your at $50.00 for it, let me know, and I'll take it, as long as it isn't smeared.
Otherwise if you want Teixeira or Pence or even J.R., I should have some autographs of all 3 players and could work a trade/paypal or pure trade deal for it.

Also if you pulled a Koufax Base, or any Brooklyn Dodgers Base or Baltimore O's.. I would like to get them for my P.C.

Thanks,
Zac
