2012 Topps Tribute Baseball Will Kick Off 2012 Season

It was one of the more popular high-end products in this year’s sports card market and 2012 Topps Tribute baseball aims to pick up where this year’s set left off.  Topps revealed the first images of the $300 per box product on Tuesday evening, along with some details on what collectors can expect to see inside.

Sandy Koufax autographed 2012 TributeTribute mixes current players with big names from the past in this product with autograph and relic cards heading up the checklist.  There will be six packs per box and five cards per pack.  Topps is promising three on card autographs numbered to 99 or less, plus parallel versions inside each box plus three relic cards within the same tiered system.

There will also be an additional Tribute to the Stars hit mixed in.  Those will be cards with sticker autographs numbered to 24.

Among the autographs will be 1-1 Onyx parallels signed in silver.

Beyond the 1-1’s will once again be a rainbow of colored versions in various quantities.

The relic cards will feature game-worn jersey swatches in various themes including World Series Swatches featuring memorabilia from active players who’ve won rings, Debut Digits, Prime Patches and Positions of Power.

The base set of 2012 Topps Tribute will consist of 100 cards.
