2005 Topps Baseball Series 3
Topps announces that 2005 Topps Traded & Rookies Baseball has been canceled
to make way for the ALL-NEW 2005 Topps Baseball Series 3.
Because 2006 Topps Baseball Series 1 will not release until February, Topps
will offer a bigger and more thorough late season series to keep collectors
busy through the holidays.
Topps Series 3, an exciting season-capper numbered T1 - T330, will cover the
2005 post season including the World Series, traded players in their new
uniforms and 110 Rookie Cards featuring 20 of the top picks from the 2005
Amateur Baseball Draft!
In the inserts department, the popular Barry Bonds Homerun History Set
continues as Series 3 offers career Homeruns 331-660. Series 3 will also
feature a slew of exclusive relic cards from this year's mid-summer classic.
And from the company that brought you the historic Presidential Cut
Signatures Collection, Topps Baseball Series 3 will unveil one of the most
fascinating signature programs ever created - The Declaration of Independence
Cut Signatures. This autograph program will feature 1 of 1 cut signatures
from 50 signers of the Declaration of Independence. (Stay tuned for more
details on this program).
2005 Topps Baseball Series 3 releases November 7 and carries a $1.59 SRP for
each 10-card pack.
