2010 Topps Baseball Series 2 is on the Bay!!!

As casebreakers are rushing to put singles, inserts, and sets of the brand new 2010 Topps Baseball Series 2 product (which is supposed to be out tomorrow), a lot of interesting things have been found so far...including:

  • Five new Pie in the Face variations, none of whom are Yankees.
  • The 20 SP cards are not ten numbers apart as originally described.
  • Has anybody noticed that there are no "When they were Young" cards in series 2??? I thought this was supposed to be a 54 card (18 per series) set...
Beckett has images of all five Pie in the Face cards:

225 David Price
353 Jason Heyward
435 Nelson Cruz
467 Mitch Talbot
509 Ike Davis

And as for the 20 SP's:

331 Eddie Mathews
354 Johnny Mize
369 Jimmie Foxx
370 Mel Ott
377 Tom Seaver
400 Frank Robinson
403 Ozzie Smith
409 Richie Ashburn
476 Thurman Munson
479 Dizzy Dean
489 Roy Campanella
532 Dale Murphy
549 Pee Wee Reese
559 Eddie Murray
569 Tris Speaker
590 Ernie Banks
600 Honus Wagner
615 Nolan Ryan
650 Ty Cobb
652 Mickey Mantle

Whether these still are limited to 3000 cards remain to be seen. It only means that it will be extremely harder (and possibly more expensive) to trade or obtain these cards. There is already an auction for all 20 cards for the unbelievably low BIN price of $379.99. Master sets are going anywhere between $99-150 on the bay, depending on if you want 613 cards or 623 (with the 10 MCG code cards).

As this blog has in past years, when information becomes available, we will be listing the ten rookies selected for the 2010 Topps Red Hot Rookies program.

Let the games continue. Happy Hunting!!!

Little disappointed in the SP's for Series 2. I like the Cobb and the Banks and will get the Mantle and Ryan as well, but that's about it.

I picked up several of the Cards Your Mom Threw Out yesterday off eBay. I was impressed that Topps did the NNO for the 1990 Frank Thomas, but the 2007 Jeter was just the regular card and not the SP with Mantle and Bush.
