One day ago I asked the readers of Wax Heaven to vote on the best design between 2009 Topps & Upper Deck. With over 160 votes, the readers picked 2009 Topps by 58% and it’s clear why. Topps has made one hell of a rebound over a 2008’s inexplicable, ugly design.
While it’s not enough to get me to buy a box, I will be on the hunt for Marlins players as soon as it hits eBay and will be first in line when the Chrome version is released. I have been back in the Hobby going on two years and have only been able to collect 2007 & 2008 Topps and as you all know, I was not pleased. This is the first Topps flagship release that has me excited since my return to the Hobby.
Est. release: February 4th, 2009
Each Hobby box will contain one autograph or game-used relic.
Each HTA Jumbo Box will contain one autograph and two game-used relics.
Included in packs of 2009 Topps will be Turkey Red Inserts (R.I.P) and original one of one sketches that will not look as good as Kimaloo’s sketches but that is life.
