Default Topps Adds Content To High-end Sterling Baseball

TOPPS ADDS CONTENT TO HIGH-END STERLING BASEBALL



The gorgeous Topps Sterling Baseball returns in 2009 with some amazing enhancements…

* Every pack now includes an extra hit! Packs now feature an Autographed Relic or Relic #’d to 10 or less (as always) plus an additional Relic #’d to 25. You also still get your 3 sequentially numbered base cards and Mystery Pack featuring either a cut signature or #’d parallel card.

* Every 10-pack case guarantees a Cut Signature card.

* All packs are now themed…more mystery and more fun. No more player specific names on packs. Look for themes such as “Triple Crown Winners”, “Sterling Americana”, “Chart Hall of Fame Members” and much more.

* Content added with no price change. All the great players from Sterling’s past (Ruth, Cobb, Jackie, Mickey and many more) are still guaranteed in every pack plus you get an extra card. And the price stays the same! (image attached)



2009 Topps Sterling Baseball ships late December. Each 10-card pack case guarantees:

· 5 Autographed Cards #’d to 10 or less

· 5 Relic Cards #’d to 10 or less

· 10 Relic Cards #’d to 25

· 1 Cut Signature Card

· One 1 of 1 Card

the presales for this must have been pretty damn mediocre for topps to have to add more stuff to it.

Yeah, because who in their right mind wants to pull a Dan Haren from a $200+ dollar pack? I can finally pass on this product. :thumbdown:

Anyones opinion on how the resale will be now? Before if you hit the ruth, etc box, you sold it and were money ahead....

Now it seems you have to open the "themed" packs to take the chance at all....

You think its good or bad?

Its not going to effect it. Topps Sterling is the product that is getting the extra cards, not Bowman Sterling.

I wouldn't think you could tell much by weight, although I guess just from picking up a box you could feel something like a bat nameplate. There are too many variables like jerseys versus bat pieces the number of pieces, etc. I would think the only cards people could cherry pick would be the bat plate cards and perhaps booklet cards. Although, I guess those are usually the best ones, lol.


However, I'm not following what they are doing for 09. I was under the impression that you'd get a player box, a mystery "pack" (card), and then this new themed "pack (card).

So, I guess that's wrong as "No more player specific names on packs."
