Default First Look: 2012 Topps Tier One baseball cards

First Look: 2012 Topps Tier One baseball cards

January 19, 2012 at 7:40 PM



By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

Topps unveiled the basic product information and preview images for the sophomore release of Tier One on Thursday, a second installment of the high-end brand that will arrive in June.

Each pack will include three hits one Crowd Pleaser autograph or one of three other options a multi-signed autograph card, an autographed Relic or a cut signature. In addition, every pack will include one On The Rise autograph and a Relic numbered to 399 or fewer copies when it hits hobby shops on June 18.

Every fourth pack will include all of that and a bonus Relic, while every 12-pack case will include a Top Tier autograph.




New for 2012 will be 1/1 bat knob cards, autographed Relics and Clear Rookie Reprint cards cards printed on clear plastic stock. Also new to Tier one this year will be autograph parallels for all cards signed in varying colors of ink White (limited to 25), Silver (10) and Gold, which are 1/1s

On The Rise will be the most plentiful sigs at 399 made, while the Crowd Pleasers will be limited to 299. The rest? No more than 99 copies signed with duals limited to 25, triples limited to 10 and cuts being, of course, 1/1s.

Over on the autographed Relic side, all cards will be limited to 99 copies of less from a mix of Top Shelf, dual and triple patch and Prodigious Patches cards. Top Shelf are the most plentiful with 99 of each card, while all others are limited to 25, 10 and one.

The Relic checklist is a bit deeper with Top Shelf showcasing more than 60 current and past stars limited to 399, while duals and triples are 99 and 25. Prodigious Patches will be limited to 10, while Bat Knobs will be 1/1s.

According to the preliminary checklist, some of the Top Tier signers will include Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax, Ken Griffey Jr., Willie Mays, Albert Pujols, Nolan Ryan, Ernie Banks and Reggie Jackson, among others.

The On The Rise autograph list which may include as many as 85 signers are Anthony Rizzo, Michael Pineda, Freddie Freeman, Carlos Gonzalez, Aroldis Chapman, Dustin Ackley, Eric Hosmer, Clayton Kershaw, Mike Trout and many others.

Crowd Pleaser signers will include Prince Fielder, Buster Posey, David Wright, CC Sabathia, Evan Longoria, Chipper Jones, Joe Mauer, Andre Dawson, Boog Powell and many more.

The Rookie Reprint signers will include Mays, Griffey, Don Mattingly, Ryne Sandberg and more, while Relic autographs will be found for Pujols, Josh Hamilton, Ryan Braun, Matt Kemp, Gary Sheffield and many more.

That Mays that looks like a '52 is filthy. I can't wait to see a checklist on those /25 autos.

No autos numbered to more than 399 = Good. Makes me wonder if it'll be more than the 90 a box it was this year though.

I will not buy any packs or boxes, but I will have my eyes on some of the singles. Mainly a Griffey auto now that, he will be in the Topps auto line-up.

yea that pujols is sick! they actually made a topps sterling card almost identical to that one (with the jumbo Cardinal bird heard patch and auto) and knew the guy that had it, but he sold it before I could buy it off of him...still kick myself over not doing more to get it sooner off of him

Wait until the fall releases if you want cheap, you just know they're gonna put him in everything! I might be the only one not complaining about this, Junior is one auto I've wanted in my collection I've yet to ad.

You will not hear any complaints from me. UD over saturated the market with his auto and I am sure Topps will do the same thing. I just want to add Griffey to my Topps/Bowman auto collection. It does not need to be a super short print-run, numbered under /10, etc. I will take a reasonably prices on card certified auto for the personal collection. Now if they can just get Ichiro to sign some, he is another I would love to add.

I like these cards much better than 2011, really dislike the faded border.

Can't wait to get another Angel Pegan auto version 2012!!! Does Topps even know how to make a decent non-prospect oriented product??

Marquee - BOMBed
Tier One - BOMBed
Triple Thread - Disappointing
Didn't even make Topps sterling in 2011... maybe that is a good thing...

now more of the same garbage for 2012...

Topps sure can make a mean sell sheet.

All looks great

But they fill there high end products with 3rd year prospect autos #999

Ruins the product

No reason topps can't make tier one musuem collection triple threads and tribute without that crap....

Come on topps step up
