Random Topps Team Set of the Week: 2011 Philadelphia Phillies

Thanks to the Topps Card Randomizer, introducing the Random Topps Team Set of the Week:

The checklist consists of the following players:
The cards in order from the set (the checklist at the end was cut from the back of the package. What, you don't do that?):

Key differences between the team set and 2011 Topps eponymous set:
  • Cliff Lee as he was originally pictured as a Ranger, and as he appears in '11 Update Series:

  • In the base set, Domonic Brown is batting:

  • In Update Series, Wilson Valdez is fielding in mid-air:

  • Ben Francisco is fielding in the base set:

  • Ryan Madson's card in the eponymous set was set horizontally:

We could play "If This is His Topps Card, What Card is This?" all day long with this set as five of the sixteen players have different cards found exclusively in this team set.

Next week's featured set will be the 2012 Houston Astros.  Hope you'll be here when we compare the cards from the retail set to their counterparts found in Topps and Topps Update Series.
