2011 Topps Factory Set Sell Sheets are Live!!!

The sell sheets for this year's Topps Baseball Factory Sets are now live. Please take a look and see what is in store for 2011:

My comments:

Notice something missing???  That's right!!!  No mention of team sets!!!  Does this mean that they are doing away with the annual Yankees, Red Sox, and token other team-specific factory sets?  Or will Topps manage to get a separate sell sheet going announcing that there will be a factory set for ALL 30 TEAMS??!
Card #500, the most hallowed numbers in a Topps set, has been awarded to Kevin Youkilis.  Deserving of the honor???  For me, I think it could have gone to somebody better.  What do you think?

Instead of a bonus five pack of rookies (probably saving them for the Holiday set), once again Topps will include a five-pack of red parallel cards. Now, I don't know how many of these factory sets were opened (I have yet to see someone with a full 660-card...or 661-card set if Topps' wonder boy, Stephen Strasburg, get a card here too?), but I'm pretty sure many of these red bordered beauties did not see the light of day.

As always, the checklists are all subject to change. Happy Hunting!!!
