2012 Topps Series 1 releases on February 1, 2012.
Who plans on busting Topps? For me, it will likely be 1-2 blasters (or maybe more, if I catch the itch).
Diamonds were the theme in 2011; this year, it will be gold.
From Dave and Adam's Card World product page:
Look for (1) AUTOGRAPH OR RELIC CARD PER HOBBY BOX!!
A VERY SPECIAL INSERT WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN GOLD:
Topps has produced 16 very special cards that are made of pure 14K solid gold and are exclusive to HOBBY boxes. These "SOLID GOLDEN GREATS" (inserted as redemptions) include only the best of the best to ever step on the diamond and features legends such as Lou Gehrig (image attached), Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron.
In addition, Topps teamed up with Beckett Grading Services to present these gorgeous cards in an exclusive Topps slab. Each BGS protected card includes the insert name, player name and 1 of 1 sequential numbering....making this a truly unique collectible.
So collectors get ready, because the GOLD RUSH is about to begin!
It's not baseball season without TOPPS BASEBALL SERIES 1, and for 2012 it returns with a celebration of the greatest Golden Moments of Major League Baseball and the players who made them happen. With all the stars, award winners, League leaders, and September call-up Rookies of 2011.
