Topps 206 MLB - 2010

20 packs - 9 cards per pack
'Two Autographs and/or Relics Per Box!'

I received the following:

135 unique base cards - 45% of the base set of 300



Players in the base set are all pictured with their caps off - except J. Boubon #242 - what's up with that? The set consists of players of yesteryear - Ruth, Chance, Tinker, Munson, etc. along with the rookies and players of today.

INSERTS

Bronze Parallels

18 different bronze parallels
The parallels are printed on card stock that is 2-3 times thicker than the regular base.



Short Prints

5 SP's



Maybe I have missed them, but I cannot find a number on these cards. One must have the checklist (see 206 SP Checklist post) to determine what number you have.... :confused: The SP's are very easy to spot - they are printed on white stock and the reverse is stark - only the player's last name.

Mini Parallels





I received one mini in each pack.

5 Historical Events
2 Polar Bear
1 Old Mill
5 Baseball Caramels
6 Piedmont

1 #ed Cycle to 99

Johnny Bench


2 Auto Cards



Ryan Perry - Detroit
and a pitcher from the Nationals :D
John Lannan (close but no cigar!)

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

Topps 206 is a good issue for both the younger collector and the vet. The younger folks can learn from the historical cards and from the stars/veterans from years gone by and the veteran collectors can be reminded of many of the players that some of us grew up with.

The autos - ON THE CARD!!!!!!! --- YES!!!!! very good. They look great! Thank you Topps!

Draw back - the number of different mini parallels... wow - how hard is one of those sets going to be complete??? Only someone with a great deal of time and probably deep pockets will be able to complete one of these.

SP's.... still don't know why there is no number on the reverse.

Overall grade A-- need numbers on SP's and too many choices for mini back parallels.

Go buy a bunch of boxes and send the Rays - regular, bronze, and all the different mini's to me!

Thanks for the great writeup, Duane. I've enjoyed building the 206 sets back to 2002 and will continue to do so. I have yet to see that the 'cap on' SPs come in the mini form, and I'm happy about that.

I have these Rays for you:
Bronze: 183 Pena, 276 Bartlett
Base: 103 Shields, 276 Bartlett, 293 Niemann

Can use any of the minis (baseball only) that you can send in return. Tks - Jim
