Default First Look: 2013 Topps Big League Minis

First Look: 2013 Topps Big League MinisDecember 21, 2012 at 2:29 PM
By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor
Topps is getting into the game with the stars of the game.
The company announced Friday that its bringing MLB to the packaged vinyl figures area with 2013 Topps Big League Minis a collection of 28 3-inch vinyl figures that are packaged like cards. The blindly wrapped collectibles niche has been one that has grown in the last few years via non-sports properties.
Set to arrive on June 12, Big League Minis will show players and will have chase variation figures as well. They will sell for about the same price as a pack based on factory cost, though a suggested retail price was not announced.
See a visual checklist of the figures after the jump.

You've gotta be kidding. Cheesy doesn't begin to describe that dung.

This stuff has a huge following, not my cup of tea but it will sell. Look up Kid robot sets and you will get an idea of the value these things tend to hold.

Dafuq??

I don't care what anyone says... that Prince Fielder is racist as hell.

Either featuring artist "Q" or "Tempy Moore"

Also, why are Pujols' lips so damn big?!?!

I hope Qwasian receives royalties on those as they are clearly based off of his sketches.
