    2013 Topps Series 1

    2013 Topps Series 1

    Per box items:
    36 packs per box
    10 cards per pack
    1 autograph or relic per box

    The standard sized base set cards feature a full color action shot of the player. Bordered in white, the card fronts have the player name and team logo at the bottom. The card fronts are trimmed with the team's primary color. The card backs are photo-less and are horizontal in design. The backs include moderate biographical information, a 'career chase' statistic, complete career statistics, and brief career highlights or a player quote. The backs are also trimmed with the team's primary color.

    What I Pulled:
    338 unique cards, no duplicates. Packs with thicker cards had fewer total cards in them.
    287 base set cards, 287/330, 87% of the base set
    50 inserts, parallels including 3 die cut cards and 4 gold cards #/2013
    1 relic card

    I really like the design of this year's Topps cards. The very simple clean design is very appealing. I think that the photography from Topps has really improved over the past couple of years. Topps again uses occasional horizontal card fronts when the shot dictates. We also see checklist and league leader cards. Topps has issued several short prints cards of players. These alternate variations show the player making a play at or over an outfield wall. The Topps base set is again loaded with inserts and parallel sets. I would have liked to see a few less inserts to get that many more base set cards. That being said though it will not be difficult to complete the base set and some of the inserts look pretty cool!

    The Bottom Line:
    I give 2013 Topps Series 1 a buy rating. It will be very easy to complete a base set with a box, a few extra packs and some light trading. There are lots of inserts and parallels to chase.

    The Final Score:
    Final Ratings (Out of 10):
    Base set collect-ability: 8/10
    Big-hit Hunter: 8/10
    Prospector Hunter: 10/10
    Value: 8/10
    Overall Quality: 10/10


    Overall: 44/50 (88% = B)

    Topps sent me this box to review for Full Spectrum Baseball. As always I am offering base and insert cards to members here for a SASE.

    Thanks to Topps for making this review possible!

    Nice Clemente hit,a little late with the review though as I think everybody and their brother already busted some of this stuff.
    Do something nice for someone everyday, it will pay off in the long run.
