50 Hottest 2012 Topps Five Star Baseball Cards

Whether or not you can afford the hefty price of boxes, 2012 Topps Five Star Baseball has some great opportunities for window shopping. Whether it's dual autographed patch book cards, bat knobs, bat barrels or autographs from many of baseball's all-time greats, there is certainly a lot of high-end content to be found.

To be sure, 2012 Topps Five Star Baseball is something of a gamble. Any product that costs that much (or even half that) is. Some are going to walk away disappointed while others are going to be more than ecstatic.

Part of the product's draw is that it offers a strong balance between current stars, Hall of Famers and recent retirees. The inclusion of some players, like John Kruk, George and Robin Ventura, in such a high-end product may be questionable. But, overall, the checklist is very strong. Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Ken Griffey Jr. are just some of the legends with unique cards in the set.

Autographs come with up to eight signatures on a book card. Other book cards pair up multiple logo patches with on-card signatures. Inscriptions also offer something different for collectors, adding a spin on autographs that some collectors might already have.

Below is a real-time list of the 50 most-watched cards currently listed on eBay. It's a great way to get a feel for the high-end hits coming out of the product as well as what's generating the most interest. For many of the unique and low-numbered cards, it may be the only chance to see or bid on them.
