Wow, that is ugly. White borders hold better than black, but they look like something out of the early 90's. Maybe because that's all they will be worth. The legendary lineage insert cards looks nice, but how many non-autographed manufactured patches are these companies going to keep making??

well i got this off wax heavens blog (i usually visit 1-2 times a week) there is also a link to another blog that has more info. i am kinda pissed about the turkey red inserts instead of a full set.

Each Hobby box will contain one autograph or game-used relic.

Each HTA Jumbo Box will contain one autograph and two game-used relics.

Included in packs of 2009 Topps will be Turkey Red Inserts (R.I.P) and original one of one sketches that will not look as good as Kimaloo’s sketches but that is life.

You can find all the details of 2009 Topps by clicking HERE.


(from another site)

NEW! 2009 Topps Baseball introduces Legends of the Game commemorating 25 of the greatest players of all time, including Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Mickey Mantle and Lou Gehrig. With autographs, cut signatures, patch cards, and relics, these rare and matchless cards are ONLY available through Topps!

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

* 1 Autograph or Relic Per Hobby Box!

* 1 Numbered* Legends of the Game Nickname Letter Patch in EVERY HTA Jumbo Box!

So what this means is that as predicted, the CMG exclusives will be a big theme for 2009 Topps. The Turkey Red cards are a going to be used as inserts through all three series (1, 2, and U & H).

No word on a preliminary checklist, although you already know how that goes...

I am going to contrary to most of the other posts and say that I like the 2009 Topps design. It is a refreshing change from the past 5 year plus many of the insert sets have a very appealing look.

Looks like the Jumbo boxes will have significantly more hits than this year's stinkers.

I like the design, it looks a little like 1987-88 Topps Hockey set.
