Product Review

2011 Topps Pro Debut Baseball Product Review

Reviewed By Paul Lesko

Good: Love the base set to collect minor league players in minor league uniforms. The low numbered parallel colors also provide scarcity for players that could become future greats. The relic cards are enjoyable too.

Bad: Compared to Bowman products, the auto checklist is weak. Also, with Bowman and now Topps Heritage Minor League Baseball, it is difficult to grasp the purpose of this product.

The Bottom Line: If you want a product that does a good job of representing the minor leagues, this is your product. If you are more looking for autographs of the up-and-coming players, the market seems saturated, and 2011 Topps Pro Debut is at the bottom of the heap.

Staff Rating:
3.9 / 5.0

Card Design: 4.2/5.0

The base set design is great. While some have complained that it is too similar to the 2011 Topps Series 1, to me this choice places the minor league product almost on an equal footing with its Major League counterpart. And this is what the product should be about—a celebration of the minor leagues. I love the focus on minor league uniforms, and the photography does a great job of catching the players in action poses while capturing the homey feel of the stadiums.

The relic patches are assembled, obviously, from the minor league uniform, which gives your collection more variety and color than a collection from just the 30 major league teams. The three parallel colors (Blue #'d/309, Gold #'d/50 and Red 1/1) will also give some lucky collectors some rare cards of great Minor Leaguers, and potential future Hall of Famers.

The autographed card design, on the other hand, is not that impressive. The autos are stickers, and some, especially one of the hits I pulled, are crooked.

Checklist: 4.5/5.0

2011 Topps Pro Debut Baseball 62The base set checklist is loaded, and if I only had to score this checklist, I'd give it a 4.9. Eric Hosmer, Jameson Taillon, Shelby Miller, oh yeah, Bryce Harper, and dozens of other great Minor Leaguers. With the limited number of parallel colors, this could be a good product to load up on rarer cards for future Hall of Famers. Also, because this is a hobby only product, could be a good chance to get a rarer Harper card in his Harperstown, I mean Hagerstown, uniform.

The auto checklist is not stellar, and looks to be a repeat of quite a few Bowman autos. Sure, you have a chance of pulling a 1/1 Harper…ok, you don't. But it's there. Also, the set contains AFLAC cut autos, which makes me wonder, why not just use the AFLAC cards themselves rather than cut them up?

Value: 4.2/5.0

Much like going to a minor league game, Topps Pro Debut is less expensive. For its price, it's a good product. It's also priced well below Bowman, and delivers two autos and two relics per hobby box. It pains me to say, but I'd rather have the patches and the base set from this product, than the autos.

The Fun Factor: 4.8/5.0

Seeing a product celebrate the minor leagues is great. Most times I enjoy minor league ball games more than major league games, and this product captures that feeling. I also don't remember a product where I was so entertained by the base set with the variety of teams and uniforms. It surprised me that I enjoyed this product as much as Bowman 2011 this year, but for different reasons. And maybe that's where this product fits into the minor league market. You buy Bowman in the hopes of the auto; you buy Topps Pro Debut hoping for everything but the autos.

This is a fairly mediocre product. I’m a prospector, and I’d prefer if there were MLB logos rather then the MILB logos. The cards didn’t look as clean as last year’s product, and the inserts were fairly boring. The only upgrade on last year’s product was the fact that there are 4 hits per box instead of 3 like last year.

This product is just average. I’ve opened 8 boxes now and although I expected some duplicates, the amount of duplicates within the jersys and autos is disturbing. It doesn’t seem to be the kind of product for “turning over” for profit. I’ve got my common set, maybe 2 and a complete set of jerseys but I had to buy about 6 of the jerseys to complete. Not as good as last year. No cut signatures also and last year’s boxes yielded about 2-3 cuts in 8 boxes…along with the other 2 sigs.
