Random Topps Team Set of the Week: 2007 Houston Astros

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:
  • While Brad Ausmus' retail card looks like he is making the catch, his base card shows what may have happened afterwards:

  • Luke Scott's base card is horizontally-oriented to showcase that swing on his base card:

Of the 14 players included in this set, 2 players have different pictures on the retail set compared to the base set. Not too much to write home about, but you can make an argument that both retail cards look better than the base cards.

Next week's featured set will be the 2009 Cincinnati Reds. 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 sets.
