Topps has provided more images and some details on what its 2011 baseball cards will look like and what kind of cards we can expect.
The basic design was revealed earlier this month.
On the heels of last year’s Million Card Giveaway, Topps will celebrate its 60th anniversary with several newly created insert lines. The biggest splash, however, revolves around the inclusion of actual diamonds on some of its cards.
Like last year, Diamond Giveaway code cards will be inserted one per six packs. Collectors will win something when revealing each code online with the grand prize being an actual diamond embedded card.
The online promotion will be supported by a $2 million dollar public relations and advertising campaign.
2011 Topps Baseball insert sets will include Glove Leather Relic Cards, limited to one per case and one per gumbo box.
There will also be a scarce Diamond Die Cut series, a 60 Years of Topps set, Gold, Black and Platinum Parallel cards and 60th anniversary autograph cards featuring on-card congratulatory messages from players. The latter will be limited to 60.
Topps will release its 2011 baseball base product via packs late this coming winter.
Series Two and factory sets will be released later in the season.
