Random Topps Team Set of the Week: 2009 Topps Milwaukee Brewers

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 2009 Topps eponymous set:
  • The picture used for Prince Fielder's base card is bit different than the one used for the retail set:

  • Did you know that Mike Cameron appears in two cards in the 2009 Topps set, one in each series? The first picture is card #162, the other #346:

  • It's a different picture of Corey Hart, but you see more of him in the base set:

  • Here's Trevor Hoffman sporting some Photoshopped Brewers duds (or were the retail ones altered?):

  • Manny Parra also gets a different picture on retail card, as seen by what was used on the base card below:

  • Rickie Weeks takes the field on his base card:

  • Jason Kendall in his catcher's gear, but a different shot:

  • Jeff Suppan is working on his sliding technique on his base card:

  • Bill Hall flashes the leather on his eponymous card:

  • Finally, Yovani Gallardo's card with another picture:

So of the 14 players included in this set, there are ten use totally different pictures on the retail set, and one player (Cameron) just happens to show up twice. You want variations, this set is for you Brewers fans. There was a ton here.

Next week's featured set will be the 2008 St. Louis Cardinals. 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 Series.
