Pro Debut - M L B
24 packs - 8 cards per pack
2 autos and 2 relics per box!
I received these:
167 unique base cards of the 200 card set -- i.e. (for those in Austin - home of the cows...) 83.5% of the base set....
Pro Debut is a little bro to the Topps base set. The design is the same. The minor leagues have many more cool logos than the majors.... as well as names for the different franchises. This set, Pro Debut, is like several others, get the boxes, complete the set, put it up for several years and pull it out to see who are the big dogs and who are the busts! I believe this is a great set for the set builder - one should only need 2 boxes or so to complete the set and have more than enough 'traders' to complete the set - not to mention the inserts.
Only one - Jose Peraza #d to just 50
Distinguished Debut / Promo Night Uni's
DD - Rondon, Nola, Tucker, Newcomb
PNU - Reed, Peterson
How cool is the Reed jersey? Different color puzzle pieces.... one of my favorites!!
Not sure why, but this is a variation of the base card. Did not receive any other variants to the best of my knowledge.
Skippy - relic
Definitely in the top 10 in relics received.... beyond cool!
Both are sticker autos (as they should be!) and both look very good!
Pro Debut is a good issue for the player speculator - especially for those who have a minor league team in their city. One should pick up several boxes, take the cards to the games and get them autographed before the player hits the bigs!
The Skippy relic is nothing but cool. It's the first relic that I have received or seen that actually comes off of the card!
Overall grade -- A -- go pick up several boxes and send the Round Rock Express to me!
