    Base Cards

    There are 330 cards in the base set. They consist of rookie cards, players who changed teams during the season, and home run derby contestants. The cards have the same design as the Series One and Two Topps cards with the white border. The front of the card has the team's logo with the team color worked on one side. The back of the cards have player information and career major league stats. You should be able to complete the base set with a box and a half and some light trading.


    If you like inserts, this is your product. There are over 100 cards in a box of nothing but inserts. There are over 7 different types of inserts with most carrying over from the Series One and Two product. The Cards Your Mom Threw Out are one of my favorites and they continue with another 58 different cards. The Turkey Red Inserts also continue and add another 50 cards to that set.

    Gold Parallel

    These cards have the same look and design as the base cards except with a gold border. The cards are numbered out of 2010. We pulled 6 Gold cards: Hong Chih Kuo #162, Ryan Ludwick #169, Ben Sheets #205, Yorvit Torrealba #217, Kevin Millwood #255, and Arthur Rhodes #286.

    Black Parallel

    These cards have the same look and design as the base cards except with a black border. The cards are numbered out of 59. We pulled a Coco Crisp #312.

    Box Topper

    The Box Topper was a Topps Chrome Omar Beltre Rookie Refractor #36. These cards have the same look and design of the base cards except with a chrome finish and refractor tint. You get one Box Topper card per box.

    Cards Your Mom Threw Out

    These cards are reprints of some of the classic Topps cards of the player featured. We pulled 13 cards: Eddie Mathews #117, John Podres #118, Tom Lasorda #119, Carl Yastrzemski #126, Steve Garvey #136, Mark Fidrych #142, Rickey Henderson #147, Dave Winfield #150, Nolan Ryan #156, Billy Wagner #159, Nomar Garciaparra/Derek Jeter/Alex Rodriguez #164, Mike Schmidt/Jim Thome #169, and Ian Kinsler #170.

    The John Podres #118 has the original 1953 Topps card back design on it instead of the 2010 insert set card back design.

    Legendary Lineage

    This insert set showcases a baseball all star and compares him to a rising prospect. We pulled 5 cards: Rod Carew/Robinson Cano #64, Mark Teixeira/Logan Morrison #68, Tom Seaver/Mike Leake #69, Ernie Banks/Starlin Castro #70, and Jim Palmer/Brian Matusz #71.

We pulled 36 cards: Jered Weaver #28, Hideki Matsui #29, Mark Reynolds #30, Brian McCann #33, Nick Markakis #35, Kevin Youkilis #36, Victor Martinez #37, John Lackey #38, Starlin Castro #39, Paul Konerko #42, Shin Soo Choo #44, Ubaldo Jimenez #46, Miguel Cabrera #47, Mike Stanton #50, Hunter Pence #51, Joakim Soria #52, Andre Ethier #53, Clayton Kershaw #54, Ryan Braun #55, Joe Mauer #56, Ike Davis #58, David Wright #59, Robinson Cano #60, Kurt Suzuki #62, Roy Halladay #63, Ryan Howard #64, Adam Wainwright #67, Buster Posey #69, Matt Cain #70, Ichiro Suzuki #71, Evan Longoria #72, David Price #73, Josh Hamilton #74, Vernon Wells #75, Stephen Strasburg #76, and Adam Dunn #77.

    Turkey Red

    The Turkey Red inserts have an old school retro feel to the card. The card photo displays a painted portrait of the player featured with his name on a plate on the bottom of the card. We pulled 9 cards: Kelly Johnson #102, Aramis Ramirez #107, Jonathan Broxton #116, Jason Bay #119, Ryan Doumit #124, Kyle Blanks #125, Lou Brock #133, Rogers Hornsby #136, and Cy Young #144.

    Relic Card

    Our one hit card of the box was a MLB All Star Game Jersey of Evan Longoria. The card has the red swatch on the bottom left of the card with the player featured on the right side. The swatch was a Workout Jersey.

    I really enjoyed this box and would like to thank Topps for another great product. The photography and player selection are strong in this Update Series. The box is insert heavy and there are many great insert sets here to choose from. Some of the my favorite ones are the Cards Your Mom Threw Out and Turkey Red cards. The hobby boxes are very reasonably priced and can be had for around $35 to $43.

    I would like to thank Topps and Card Collectors World for giving us this chance to break this box. Please support the sponsors that support us.
    Looking for Columbus Blue Jacket cards i need as well as many Hockey set needs.

        I always like vintage cards and the Cards Your Mom Threw Out is a cool idea for an insert set. The Million Card Giveaway will get everyone some more old school Topps cards to redeem. Another great product from Topps.

          Pretty solid break- its nice that there are still a few products out there for true set builders- and Topps does a great job of making some stuff affordable for people who cant afford 100 bucks for a box

          Nice review, and thanks Topps for letting us do it!!!

            I love the "cards your mom threw out" and "vintage legends" sets... Topps has the bulk of history in cards on their side.. and its nice to see them use it

                Nice review and a nice Longoria g/u.
                Still collecting Frank Thomas in any uni and HoFer G/U & Auto's.

                I do not trade nor buy at "eBay values", unless a card is so rare that it is unlisted.

                  Solid review. I like the Longo GU, and the multititude of inserts available is awesome.

                    I never knew that all these different Topps Products were put into one box. I'm blown away by that!.

                    Great review....and even though I'm not a baseball card collector, this is one of those boxes that would be fun to open with the kids on a lazy saturday afternoon.

                    Vintage Legends.....I like the look of those cards!, but anytime you can pull a Longoria game-used, you know you did pretty good!
