Coming Soon to a Store Near You...2010 Topps 17-Card Team Sets.

Since 2006, as a way to bring kids back to the Hobby, Topps began issuing Team Sets for each of the 30 MLB teams. And they could be found EVERYWHERE!!! From big box stores like Target and WalMart, to your local Supermarket, these blister packed sets contained at least 14 cards of your local team's heroes. No leafing through pack after pack to get cards of the team you root for, it's all here in easy-to-carry-to-the-register-package.

Now, in 2006, there were 14 cards in each set. And while many cards had pictures similar to those found in the 2006 base set, there were a number of cards of players who were pictured in different uniforms, had different pictures entirely, or players who were left of the base set included, meaning that they were only found in these retail only sets. These must have sold very well because in 2007 and 2008, these 14-card packages returned to store shelves. In 2009, a bonus 15th card was added to each of the sets. These bonus cards could have been of the stadium, the manager, the team mascot, a bonus player, or even a President or two.

For the record, I have been insane enough to buy not just one set, or even two. I have bought ALL 30 TEAM SETS for the last FOUR YEARS!!! That's 120 team sets, roughly 1710 cards total, that I have added to my collection. What can I say, I wanted to collect them all...

In 2010, the team sets are back. But there aren't 14 cards, not even 15 cards...but an astounding 17 CARDS IN EVERY SET!!! Seventeen players in every set. Some teams don't get 17 players in the base set nowadays. But this year, each set will include 17 players from your favorite team. Meaning that a couple of bench guys and maybe one reliever OUTSIDE of the main set-up guy, might actually show up in these blister packs.

So who's in? Last year, I took the time to include all the players found in the initial checklist. After quick debate, I thought why not do it again? It makes for one of the longest posts on the blog, but it's well worth it. So here they are again, the checklists for all 30 teams. Please remember though that these checklists, like all other previews, are subject to change.

Wow, that was a lot. Now, I have a source that can get me all 30 sets for under $100.00? Where? I'm not saying. That's my secret. But as soon as I get the funds together, I'm making a phone call to the place I bought the stuff last year. I'm looking forward to these cards. Can't wait to see what they look like. Some surprises along the way (Mickey Mantle...REALLY??? And what's the deal with the Royals??? They couldn't get 17 guys together that they had to use the MASCOT???)

I hope putting these checklists online helps you decide to go out and get a team set, or two, or thirty.

Happy Hunting!!!

Interested to see if the Mantle is from the regular issue #7 or a completely new card. Here's hoping for a completely new card!

Some of the fellas over at the Detroit Sports Collectors site have reported that there may be 2 variations of the team sets, one with a collector's case and one without... including a different card in one. Fu-Te Ni is listed in one set as DET14.

I saw the Phillies team set this weekend. It appears that Topps corrected Roy Halladay's jersey to 34.

A couple of years ago, they made a card for Marty & Thom Brennamen for the Reds set. If there was a card like that in the set this year, I would buy it...but just for regular players? I'll just get the regular cards.

Saw the DBacks one at WalMart the other day. Maybe I'll have to go back and pick it up.

I just opened both of the Tigers sets (with and without collector case) and both sets are the same. Ni is not in either one.

I picked up a bunch of these the last few years traveling around the country. When I was in NY in '08 I picked up variations of both the Yankees and Mets sets that had a foil stamped logo commemorating the last year's of those stadiums.

So far this year I have both Tigers, the Brewers with collector case, and the Cubs and White Sox without the collector case. I'm going to the west coast for a week in May and I hope to rack up while I'm out there.
