Topps Tribute

6 packs per box - 3 cards per pack
3 on card autos and 3 memorabilia cards per box

I received these:

10 unique base cards - making an assumption that the base set is 100 - 10% of the base set.

Tribute is a super premium issue. The cards are very thick and have a mirror/refractor finish on the front of the card. The player is the focus of the card - not the graphics or logos or design enhancements.

Tribute is a mixture of both vets and current stars/rookies. As a personal preference, I would prefer a larger set with more current players and a limited number of retired/former players... maybe it's just me.

I believe this issue is an excellent issue for the player collector - not so much for the set builder. The auto collectors out there should be relatively pleased with the offering as well.

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

I like Tribute. I believe that one receives a good number of autos and relics in one box. I would like to see a few more base cards included in a box - just for the set builders such as myself.

I also like the on card autos - well done. If there could be an improvement there, I would have current players as the regular autos and vets/retired players as inserts or 'extra' hits in a box.

Overall grade A

Go buy several boxes and send the cellar dwelling Rays to me - base and refractors.

Duane,

I really love the design and look of that A-Gon autograph! Would you mind taking a look at my photobucket to see if anything I have you could use? Thanks and thanks for the great reviews!

Let's do it this way.... A-Gon is yours. I only collect baseball.... I'll let you pick what you are going to send me for the A-Gon. Post as a trade with my portion being 'surprise'

I can use the Galarraga & Crawford for my Giants collection. I have a 2005 Fleer Showcase Wave of the Future 3-color Patch Mark Teixeira /50 #wf-mt($25) to offer. LMK. Thanks

Nice review and the design of the cards is easy on the eyes.....If the base set is about 100 cards. Might think about putting a set together. Best regards, David

No I am not doing the base set of Tribute... I am trying to complete Stadium Club.

OK just checking...what base cards did you get as I am doing it ?



If you have any of these I could use them.
