2012 Topps Baseball

36 packs - 10 cards per pack
1 Autograph or 1 Relic card per box!!

Base Cards

http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e63/hdjstuff/img183.jpg

I received 282 unique base cards - 85.4% of the 330 card set :D Very Good!!

The Topps regular set again this year is clean and crisp. The front is glossy with a very sharp photo of the player - I really like the photography - digital has made the photos nearly jump off of the card. The design from the front is carried to the reverse. The reverse has stats - for some minor and major league and others just major league. In addition to playing stats, there is short write up of a bit of his history in the league.

Inserts

Gold Sparkle (replaces the gold parallel)
9 unique cards

Only one criticism - some of the names are hard to read - gold on gold is kind of hard to see...

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

This is the classic Topps baseball set - Series 1. Most of us collect the entire set and some of us go for the master set with all of the insert sets included. The gold sparkle set might prove to be a bit of a challenge, but I believe that there are a number of collectors out there that will be up to the challenge.

I did not receive a blue or red parallel - these may be just in the retail boxes... not sure. Rather pleased to pull a SP - Howie Kendrick #470 - don't quite understand why the larger #'s were included as SP's in this set. Will there still be a #470 in Series 2? Guess we will just have to wait and see.

One of the coolest inserts that I received in a jumbo box that I ripped is a ring top of Ryan. I really do like these inserts - very well done.

Overall grade A+ excellent base set

Go buy several boxes and send the Rays parallels to me!!

I could use those Mays inserts you pulled for my PC, anything off my trade page you would like in return for them?

I don't know where to get the list of SP's. I usually look on the 'bay and search '2012 Topps SP' - to determine what is and what isn't an SP.
