Good: Nice selection of inserts, short prints, and rookie cards. Bad: Borderline cartoonish design, lacks an “it” factor that really sets it apart from other baseball card products. The Bottom Line: 2009 Topps T206 is an above average product that is worth buying for diehard fans of Topps Allen and Ginter and Topps Heritage. Unfortunately […]

Good: Tons of rookie cards from the strongest rookie class in years, affordable, nice compliment of chrome parallels. Bad: Lack of hits per box.

The dual autograph pairings of blue chip prospects with retired MLB stars add a whole new dimension to the set that TRISTAR sets have lacked in years past. Bad: The design doesn’t do the set justice and is the only thing preventing it from receiving a […]

The Bottom Line: I like Bowman Chrome as much as the next guy, but 2009 Bowman Chrome Football seems uninspired and stale […]
Good: Plenty of value, inexpensive and lots of variety. Bad: Autographs are few and far between. Some of the inserts are a little redundant The Bottom Line: A fitting final installment to the best Topps baseball card set in recent memory.
