Product Review

2011 Topps Lineage Baseball Product Review

Reviewed By Doug Cataldo

Good: Revisit 60 years of Topps baseball cards with an all-new set featuring the MLB stars of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Parallels mimic some of Topps greatest gimmicks including the minis from 1975, Stand-Ups, 3D cards, Cloth Stickers and regional Venezuelan variations. Many of the great ideas from the Topps Vault return with a vengeance, creating all-new memories for collectors who might not have been around to enjoy them the first time around. For those long-time collectors, it's a chance to experience them all over again.

Bad: This could have been a larger set. It's 200 cards and has multiple parallels, but they could have done so much more with it. They only scraped the surface in terms of paying homage. Topps has so many great designs and so many unforgettable, fun inserts and gimmicks, so hopefully this product will return next year.

The Bottom Line: At first glance, Lineage didn't impress. It seemed overpriced and thin on return. The hobby version is currently priced at over $80 and you get two autographs and a relic card. There is a retail box with 24 packs priced at about $50 and you get one relic per box, yet that kind of seemed a little steep too. The blasters however are just right. Priced at $19.99 you get the perfect mix of base cards, inserts and a guarantee of a 1975 Mini Relic.

Staff Rating:
3.6 / 5.0

Card Design: 3.0/5.0

The Lineage base set is similar to what you'd expect from the Topps flagship line. and Other than the inclusion of legends and throwback inserts and parallels, Lineage isn't much different from Topps Series 1 or 2 Baseball. The design is fairly bland but is saved by some distinguishable photos, especially the vintage ones. Cy Young and Tris Speaker, in particular, stand out. For the price, Lineage should offer collectors a better than basic design. They don't have to look far as they have some amazing options, such as Finest and Tribute, to choose from.

Checklist: 3.5/5.0

Lineage has a select mix of all-time greats like Babe Ruth, Nolan Ryan, Reggie Jackson, Mickey Mantle and Mike Schmidt alongside current superstars Joe Mauer, Albert Pujols and Alex Rodriguez to fill out a 200-card set. To be honest, it could have easily been a 600 card set, and a highly collectible one at that. Even at 200 cards, it is extremely interesting and collectible because of the many variations. Besides the gimmick parallels, there are also Diamond-themed variations that pay homage to the latest Topps base release. Trying to put a complete set of the base and parallel collections will be a tough and costly task.

Value: 3.0/5.0

If you're looking for autographs, then your road leads to the hobby box. Be warned, they might not deliver the value you are looking for. The best bang for the buck is with the blasters. You might not pull a memorabilia card of a Hall of Famer or even an all-time great but you will get the guaranteed hit and a nice assortment of cards. That is where the glory of Lineage shines. The value comes from reliving the past by pulling some all-time collector favorites out of a 2011 pack. It introduces today's younger collectors to the cards and ideas that put the Topps name at the top of the baseball card list back in the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Getting back to basics is something the company should consider revisiting on a more frequent, but not overwhelming basis.

The Fun Factor: 5.0/5.0

This is where Lineage shines. Between the Cloth Stickers, 1975 minis, 3D cards and all of the other variations, Lineage delivers a feeling of suspense and elation that is as close to revisiting the packs of the past as it gets. Not even Topps Heritage delivers that feeling because collectors know what's coming. Each pack of Lineage contains a different mix of cards. One pack could deliver a mini, another a pop-up. Each one stirs a different memory from a different era of Topps Baseball. If you lived and collected during those early years, you know exactly the feeling described. It was a simpler time when all the cards in the pack mattered. It's nice to know that every once and awhile, if Topps keeps this one in the rotation, that we'll be able to enjoy that feeling in today's volatile and competitive market.

Great set!

Replying to The Branca / Pesky question.

Branca exists.
Pesky does not.

Bought more than a case of these and didn’t get an auto worth more than $15. Don’t waste your time.


Has anyone ever seen a Branca or Pesky autograph card? I see these in checklists but in four years of searching have never seen one for sale.


This set has it all!
From the ’51 red backs & black backs,
1952 Topps!
’75 minis (Brett & Yount should have been on this)
Stars from past to present.


Looks like I have some saving to do. This is most certainly up my alley.

I’ll take 2011 Prestigous Lineage over 2011 Topps Lineage any day!


I’ll admit this is a nice looking product – but it conflicts a bit with Heritage and the Topps base set as well as some inserts across Topps product. That Freddie Freeman photo is on his Topps card for example…
