  • 2011 Topps American Pie Trading Cards Hobby Box Break Recap and Review

    Imagine a set that is made up of base cards, each one justas desirable as the next, insert cards that mix humor with nostalgia and hitcards that go from celebrity to sublime. You’ve just imagined 2011 Topps American Pie TradingCards, a set that makes you remember why you collected cards in the firstplace.

    Topps American Pie falls under our classification of tradingcards. Hobby Boxes contain 24 – 8card packs and feature 3 memorabilia cards.

    Here is a look at some of the cards we pulled from our hobbybox.

    Overall Look
    The design is really working here. With thematic attention paid to the different decades andgood write-ups on the backs of the cards, this base set looks great. The Inserts and Memorabilia cards arejust as smart looking.

    Quality and Variety of checklist.
    There is good coverage of key events throughout the decadesin the fields of entertainment, political history, pop culture and technology.Topps did a nice job with their selection of stars from the Hollywood Walk ofFame, but an even better selection of the stars included on the memorabilia andauto cards providing just the right amount of ‘pop culture kitsch” needed for aset like this. The buyback cards are iconic and the heavier hits like the coincards and the specialty cards like the Statue of Liberty foundation relic cardsare great bonuses.

    Do the hits hold up?
    The hits fit perfectly with the tone of this set withHollywood Sign Letter patch cards and Hollywood Walk of Fame Patch cards. Thesame holds true for the coin and stamp cards. There are some impressive hits topull like cut autos and auto/relics but even an “Eddie Munster” relic card issatisfying.

    Will you want to collect them all?
    Most likely the older you are, the more you will appreciatethese cards, but regardless of age, collectors will want them all.
