Random Topps Team Set of the Week: 2007 Topps Cincinnati Reds

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 2007 Topps eponymous set:
  • Scott Hatteberg's base card is horizontally oriented and uses a different picture than in the base set:

  • Here is Aaron Harang's Topps base card. Different picture used here:

So of the 14 players included in this set, there are two cards that features a different picture in the retail set that was used in 2007 Topps set. Not much to write about, but again, if you collect Reds cards, it might be worth noting the differences the next time you come across the retail sets.

Next week's featured set will be the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers. Hope you'll be here when we compare the cards from the retail set to their counterparts found in Topps and Topps Updates and Highlights.

Sincerely,

JayBee Anama
