Default 2008 Sterling Baseball Sneak Peek

2008 STERLING BASEBALL SNEAK PEEK



The highly-anticipated 2008 Topps Sterling Baseball ships in less than a week and Topps is offering just a taste of what this year’s product has to offer…



The retired player-only product features the likes of only the greatest ball players to step on the diamond such as Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson and many more. It is by far one of the strongest checklists to ever grace a trading card product.



Each player-specific pack guarantees a Triple Relic Card sequentially #’d to 10 or less. And each 10-player box case includes 5 AUTOGRAPHED TRIPLE RELICS and a 1 of 1 Jumbo Relic (with many featuring giant game-used patch pieces).

Ships in less than a week, today is the 9th, does that mean we are looking at a 15th release date

That is nice, here is the better question, why not number that to 4? I mean that would be an amazing hit and I think the 1/1 numbering is better than the /10 they had last year on these unique patches.

Has anyone heard anything about any guaranteed boxes per case? The last 2 years Sterling has guaranteed a Mantle and Bonds box per every case. If they don't do that this year, you might end up with guys like Yaz, Palmer or Molitor as your hits.

They should at least guarantee a couple of deseased HOF boxes. Well, that's a bad way to put it...but you know what I mean. I've already got way to many Yaz autograph's from busting Topps products.

Why buyer beware? It is the best checklist ever, even if you get "junk" It will be players like Gwynn and Gibson. However I bet you are right, you will get 5-6 junk players guaranteed....but junk like those 2, Yastremski, Schmidt, and a whole lot others who only sell for $100. However last 2 years there was some junk players like Morneau, no the worst player is Bob Gibson.

I totally agree. I'm so glad it's all retired players. Well, not simply retired BUT HOF players. I wish football didn't have McFadden, Ryan, or even AP to a lesser extent.
