The Greatest NBA Autographed Card Set Ever Assembled (200 Different Players)
Discuss this news:
With Topps Style 1952 Basketball set to ship in early May, the hobby will see the greatest and most comprehensive autograph set
ever compiled in an NBA product. There will be 200 different Topps Fan Favorites Autographs in all (2 per box). And approximately
60% of the players are signing certified trading cards for the first time.
From Oscar Robertson, Magic Johnson, Bill Bradley, Rick Barry, Moses Malone, George Gervin and Dennis Rodman to Dominique Wilkins,
Muggsy Bouges, Jo Jo White, Kelly Tripucka, Spencer Haywood, World B. Free, Maurice Cheeks and Slick Watts - there all here on
classic Topps designs. And there is even a rainbow foil parallel of all the autographed cards, which are limited to just 10
This legendary autograph set will be found in packs featuring another instant classic — Topps Style '52, which fuses today's NBA
stars with the 1952 Topps Baseball design, the most famous trading card design ever.
Within the Style '52's 165-card set, collectors can expect to find 30 different rookie cards. The base set will also be paralleled
by Chrome (#'d to 499), Refractor (#'d to 299), Gold Refractor (#'d to 25) and Super Refractor (1 of 1). For the game-used collectors,
there are 72 different Hardwood Classics (3 per box!) and for the treasure hunter, there are over 1300 different 1 of 1 printing
plates. And what would the 1952 design be without the memorable face from the original 1952 Topps Baseball Set? Mickey Mantle's
first basketball card (high school player) is part of the base set and there is even a 1of 1 cut signature version of the card.
Topps Style '52 Basketball releases the week of May 8th and carries a $6.00 SRP for each 9-card pack. Each 18-pack box guarantees
2 Fan Favorites Autographs, 3 Relics and 5 sequentially numbered Chrome Parallels.
