Default Beckett First look: 2011 Topps Tier One baseball cards

Beckett First look: 2011 Topps Tier One baseball cards


By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

Topps unveiled the basic product information and preview images for its newest debut baseball card line, Tier One, on Wednesday, and it’s a product that it says it “the definitive on-card autograph release for 2011.”

So what does that mean?

It means two autographs and one Relic in every pack along with three base cards and a parallel inside as well. Every 12-box case of the hobby-exclusive product will include one Top Tier on-card autograph as well.

The product also includes signatures from present players, Hall of Famers and other retired legends along with a selected crop of rookies. It also includes dual and triple autographs along with cut signatures and jumbo patch cards along with four tiers of parallels for each basic card.

It will arrive in mid-November.

More to come.

Refresh for more — and see images in a few minutes after the jump.


The Top Tier autographs will include what Topps says are 20 outstanding active and retired stars. These one-per-case inclusions also will have parallels limited to just 10 copies. Meanwhile, the On The Rise autographs will showcase 55 young stars and rookies with their parallels limited to just 25. The batch of Crowd-pleaser autographs will include 55 fan favorites with their Golds also limited to 25.

The Top Tier guys? Hank Aaron, Albert Pujols, Johnny Bench, Carlton Fisk, Bob Gibson, Tony Gwynn, Rickey Henderson, Reggie Jackson, Mike Schmidt, Sandy Koufax, Frank Robinson, Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Miguel Cabrera, Adrian Gonzalez, Felix Hernandez, Roy Halladay, Prince Fielder, Josh Hamilton and Evan Longoria.

There will be a small selection of dual (15) and triple autographs (five cards) limited to as few as 10 copies, while there also will be 25 1/1 cut signatures to be found in the high-end product.

The Relic lineup will include 25 players on Prodigious Patches — jumbos limited to just 10 copies — while Top Shelf Relics highlight 50 players with jersey pieces. Dual Top Shelf cards will be limited to just 99, while triples will be limited to 25.

The base set will consist of just 100 cards — retired players, veterans and rookies — while the parallels will include Tier One (1/1s) down to Tier Four, which will be limited to 199 copies.

The design reminds me of Moments and Milestones...

I think it depends on packs per box. If you get 2 autos and a relic per pack... the more packs per box the higher the price. Sounds expensive though.

More so, what is the difference between this and Marquee. If Aaron/Koufax are signing for this set as well then it sort of takes away from Marquee. I guess we'll figure out when they announce the price point..

Also didn't they get DiMaggio? Why isn't he in this set?
Edit: Nvm he is, just wasn't mentioned in OP.

Why is Pacquiao in a baseball product?

Edit: Wow he is _also_ in Marquee. Guess Topps has to pay for that sig somehow!

1 pack per box, from the looks of it around $85 per box ala Ultimate.

It will be about $85.00 a hobby box and about $1000.00 for a 12 box case. Order early because it will only go higher.
