Random Topps Team Set of the Week: 2008 San Francisco Giants

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 2008 Topps eponymous set:
  • It's the same picture, but you can see more of Aaron Rowand's at bat on his base card:

  • The same goes for Bengie Molina:

  • And check out Rajai's the same thing:

So while the cards of the other 11 players in the retail set are exactly the same as the ones in the base set, three cards use closeups of the pictures already in the base set.  No wildly obvious variations here.

Next week's featured set will be the 2006 Pittsburgh Pirates.  Hope you'll be here when we compare the cards from the retail set to their counterparts found in Topps and Topps Updates & Highlights.
