    Post First look: 2013 Topps Five Star baseball cards

    http://www.beckett.com/news/2013/04/...aseball-cards/

    Five Star is back — and it’s going for an even-higher ranking.

    The sophomore release of the most-expensive baseball card brand in Topps history was unveiled on Friday, with the $500-per-pack sequel including one base card, two autographs, one autographed patch one autographed book or silver-ink signature and one jumbo Relic in every pack.

    A preliminary checklist and release date was not disclosed.

    Each case will include just three boxes with Topps promising to “take it to the next level this year by offering a number of new cards that would be signature pieces in any collection.

    Among the new inclusions? Soccer legend Pele.

    The base set will include a mix of 100 active and retired baseball players with each card limited to just 60 copies. Each card also will have a Rainbow parallel limited to 10 and a Five Star 1/1 parallel as well.

    For the autograph collectors, there will be active and retired players signing once again with standard autos as well as Rainbows (/25) and 1/1 Five Stars. Players also will have Quotable autos once again with an added saying written alongside the graph. These will be limited to 10 and paralleled by 1/1 Five Stars. Also new in this area will be Five Star Legends autographs, which is where Pele falls.

    Also to be found are Five Star auto patches (active and retired players), which will be limited to just 35 copies apiece. They also will have Gold (/10), Rainbow (/5) and 1/1 parallels.

    On the deluxe end, there will be 1/1 bat knob and bat barrel cards to be found as well as batting glove cards that are limited to two copies apiece — presumably a righty and a lefty. Also to be found aree quad patches and octo patches, each limited to five.

    Yeah, that's a lot of dough for a few random cards. Better off just buying singles of what you like. I did buy into one break and got a pretty cool Hanley Ramirez auto though, but even those are a gamble. Hopefully this years cards don't have that notorious chipping problem.

    Same ole story for me too. I remember not having enough money for cards when I was a kid. Never thought that would happen as an adult with a decent career.

    I could understand if this was Pele's only autograph card (he doesn't have many but does have some) but other than that to spend money on him to include him in products instead of a BASEBALL player is kinda dumb. I could see something like A&G because that includes multiple sports and athletes but 5 Star is suppose to be a super premium baseball product and I would guess more baseball collectors would rather have baseball players or baseball related guys in the product instead of soccer.

    Very nice looking stuff, I'll probably end up getting a box even though I'll try not to. Maybe just some group breaks.
    Looking for 2012 National Treasures on card silver (/99) rated rookie autos, 2006 SP Legendary Cuts inserts/numbered base and most Mets auto/GU.
    Also looking for Celtics Autos/GU and 2012 Totally Certified Gold
