If you were talking about a 2010 product, that might be a possibility.

That dual cut looks like it belongs in Tribute not TTT. Overall, as normal, I like the look of this stuff. But still won't touch a box of it as it is going to be a loser for breakers like always.

Span had a Rising Star auto in 2010, and he debuted in 2008 I think

Rising star maybe (don't feel like looking) but was it classified as a RC? That would be like them putting Pedro Alvarez in 2011 TTT and calling it a RC. Its a second year card and would be mislabeled as an RC.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure he will not be considered an RC again this year.

Might not be the loser as bad this year if the price point is kept the same. Then it would almost be like getting two boxes worth of previous years.

You could just send Topps a check for about $700 and save yourself some time

So, is the price going to remain the same? I really like an idea of additional 2 hits per box.

Looks very impressive. Can't wait.

I usually buy a few boxes each year after prospecting and selling just for fun, I keep everything and don't resell. This year looks great though so I might get more. My emotions were just running high with that post///

Looks like they're trying to get away from those "cut-style" autos where the sticker's under a "window". I never liked those.

Nice. Im calling first Dibs on the Frank Thomas stuff. More hits might make it more of a close to even/even for rippers, but still I only will be buying singles of this stuff due to pricing.....unless I make a ton of money for a box that I jsut want to gamble on.

It looks exactly like every other version of TTT.

That Phils booklet is going to put a major dent in the bank account. Better start saving now.
