Come and See What Topps Has in Store for the Holidays!!!

The 2009 Topps Baseball Holiday Factory Sets are coming soon. The sell sheet says they are scheduled to go out in late October. It's the same 660 card set (barring gimmicks...ahem), and there will be another 10 card rookie variation subset. Now, and I say this because I can't stress it enough that the checklist is always subject to change, the 10 bonus cards will be of:
  • Colby Rasmus of the St. Louis Cardinals
  • Kenshin Kawakami of the Atlanta Braves
  • Michael Bowden of the Boston Red Sox
  • Edwin Moreno of the San Diego Padres
  • Ricky Romero of the Toronto Blue Jays
  • Kila Ka'aihue of the Kansas City Royals
  • Ramiro Peña of the New York Yankees
  • Freddy Sandoval of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
  • Josh Whitesell of the Arizona Diamondbacks
  • George Kottaras of the Boston Red Sox
You will notice that there are four cards on top of the sheet. Please notice that CC Sabathia is in a Yankees uniform, even though he is in the regular set as a Brewer, and his Yankees card, which doesn't even remotely look like the one pictured, is a short print. While both cards of Ryan Howard and David Wright look like what we've seen this year, the Jacoby Ellsbury cards is different as well. Are there going to be variations to the base cards of regular players as well??? The second page of the sell sheet, if you're wondering, was the full checklist of 2009 Topps plus the bonus ten cards listed above.

Well, it's something to speculate about until the sell sheets for 2009 Topps Updates and Highlights show up.
