eTopps introduces Topps T-206

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

http://t206-cards.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/2009T206Ruth-213x300.jpgA Celebration of Baseball Card History Returns!

The eTopps T-206 Tribute has continued to be embraced by collectors of all sorts, and eTopps is now proud to celebrate the start of the 2011 MLB season by expanding this special tribute to the most famous baseball cards of all time even further, with the continuation of the eTopps T-206 Set! This special limited collect! ion will highlight all-time baseball greats in the classic T-206 “Base Ball Series” trading card design of 1909!

The entire set will be beautifully designed and delivered via the classic Topps T-206 brand (even staying true to the original T-206 size and backs), but brought to life on stunning eTopps technology. This series will showcase the greatest baseball players of the 20th Century, such as Hank Aaron, as well as current MLB players such as Buster Posey, along with reproductions of players from the original T-206 series, including Walter Johnson!

We will only offer each card in very limited numbers. These cards will be sequentially numbered and individually encased!

After a five-year absence, Topps has revived its Topps Tribute line for 2009 with every pack including an autograph or Relic card.

We’ve gotten our boxes in at Beckett HQ will in advance of Tribute’s Jan. 7 street date, and will have a Box Busters video shot sometime in the coming days (hectic holiday schedules permitting).

But until then we’ll let you examine the contents of a box busted off camera — one that did indeed deliver a hit per pack as well as three base cards and a parallel card in every one.

The base set consists of 100 cards — 83 retired legends of the game, 14 veterans and just three rookies and will includes parallels — Reds (1/1s), Golds (/50), Blacks (/99) and Blues (/199). It also will include Framed Printing Plates. You can read more about the product and see the preliminary checklist by clicking here.

After the jump, you will find scans of 18 cards — the notable half of the box — along with the in-box checklist, which you can compare to the preliminary checklist. (Not much appears to have changed based on a very quick glance.)

It’s worth noting that these high-end cards (suggested retail price is $50 a pack) will be condition sensitive because of their holographic surface. Several cards came out of packs with smudges and/or scratches— some of which may rub off (but we didn’t try it).

Topps has signed an exclusive memorabilia deal with No. 1 overall draft pick Stephen Strasburg.

The multi-year deal grants the longest-running manufacturer of baseball cards and the lone fully licensed maker of cards for Major League Baseball exclusive rights for autographs, game-used memorabilia cards as well as Strasburg’s image use on packaging and advertising.

In addition, Topps will also offer a line of autographed memorabilia.

It’s safe to say that landing Strasburg was likely not easy as other companies have tried to land the Washington Nationals pitcher, but instead have gone without him or made cards without using his name and likeness and included a small number of cut autographs in products.

It’s unclear whether the deal is exclusive for autographs, but Upper Deck’s foray into baseball cards without full licensing could have had a serious impact on Topps had the California-based company landed Strasburg and Topps had not.
