2016 Topps M L B - Series 1

36 packs - 10 cards per pack (Hobby)
One Auto or One Relic Card in Every Box

I received these:



Bergers Best - G/U jsy

Buster Posey #ed to 99

Inserts / Parallels



Black #ed to 65 - Keyvius Sampson
Pink #ed to 50 - NL Leaders - Arrieta/Greinke/Cole



Foil - 3 - Ross, Weaver, Lind
Gold #ed to 2016 - Olivera, Odorizzi, Flores



Berger's Best -- 9x
Perspectives - 9x



Back to Back - 4x
Wrigley - 5x



1st Pitch - 5x
Pressed into Service - 4x



Buy Backs - 2x
Not really sure the difference - I have seen blue 65th Anniversary, red 65th Anniversary and even black 65th Anniversary - and I have seen some of these numbered. One fortunate individual pulled a Nolan Ryan 1/1 65th Anniversary card.... not me unfortunately!!



Stickers - 3x



Base - 331 unique cards - 94% of the base set -- VERY GOOD!!

This years Topps base set is designed a bit differently than past years. I like the full bleed cards with no border. Rookie cards are easily spotted with the RC logo. There are a number of variations - including Negative cards (black and white) and SP's. One must be careful when sorting - if the mice type on the reverse ends in 7075 -- it is a base card -- any other number and the card is an SP.

Also for the new collectors - there is no card #7 - the #7 has been retired by Topps for Mickey Mantle.

I like this issue because one gets most of the set, the inserts are varied, and even though I like the retired players - to the best of my knowledge there are none in the base set.

The sticker cards are pretty cool - not sure exactly how many are in Series 1, but none the less - a good insert!

Overall grade A

Go buy several boxes and send the gold, pink, black, and negative Rays to me!

Duane, can use base and parallels of the following #'s.

20, 41, 54, 65, 83, 197, 220, 276, 336.

Really could use the Cole Pink.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks Butch
