One of Topps’ new baseball products this season arrives tomorrow in 2012 Topps Museum Collection baseball. At one hit per pack, this is a hit filled product sure to make the hit collectors happy.
The box layout is simple. 4 packs, 4 hits per box. Every box will contain one on-card autograph, one autographed relic card, one jumbo relic card, and one quad relic card. The star attraction in this product is the inclusion of rookie autographs from phenom Yu Darvish. But there are some also great autographs in this product from dual autographs, cut signatures, Archival Autographs and framed autographs.
The autographed memorabilia cards feature dual relics, triple relics, quad relics, and jumbo relics along with a signature. And we all know about plain old relic cards that will be in this product.
A cool addition this year is an insert which features an original painting of some of the top 50 most collectible players of all time. There are only 10 of these made, with reproductions also filling the product. I like that addition to this product as it really gives the “museum” feel.
You’ll also find your standard base cards in several different paralleled forms numbered to 199, 99, and 1 of 1. There is also a “blue” parallel that appears to be unnumbered.
So check out this product when it hits stores tomorrow, April 4th, for around $170. It looks like it could be a fun break as the 2012 Topps Museum Collection checklist actually looks pretty good.
