Default Beckett News: Topps Attax returns to baseball diamond with new look for 2011

Beckett News: Topps Attax returns to baseball diamond with new look for 2011

By Chris Olds | Editor

Topps Attax is returning to the baseball diamond once again in 2011 but this time, Topps says the trading card game will be a little different.

There will be more cards in every pack, a new game format, a new design, new packaging, a “new marketing plan” and, in short, it’s “a whole new ballgame,” according to the company.

Attax will arrive in April with $7.99 starter kits that will consist of a 29-card deck, two foil cards and one ToppsTown card. Attax also will be found in “hanger packs” — jumbo/rack packs for the typical card collectors. Each of those contains 24 batter cards, three pitchers cards and a Mascot card. In addition, each will include a Stadium card, a foil batter card, a ToppsTown and a rules sheet and playmat. There also will be 24-pack standard pack boxes as well.

Really, though, it appears that the rules and game-play are the biggest changes — there’s now a specific baseball-focused format for the game rather than a blanket format similar to Attax in other sports.

to be honest it doesnt look as good as the past 2 years. Seems to becoming more along the lines of "magic" or "yugioh" type card game.

Yeah, I liked how it was a simple game last year and my 7 year old loved it. Especially, playing online...
