2010 Topps Update Turkey Red Insert

Card Manufacturer: Topps
Year: 2010
Card Set: Update Series Baseball
Card Number: TR145
Card Type: Insert
Insert Set: Turkey Red

This year is the first year Topps hasn't included some mini, retro, or vintage insert in it's flagship set. But back in 2010 the insert was Turkey Red and it ran through Series 1 and 2 and Update.  Of course Topps also released a Turkey Red insert in 2009 and 3 full sets of Turkey Red from 2005 to 2007 and offered  smaller sets exclusively online in 2013 and 2014.  

The 2009 and 2010 sets are some of my favorites and an insert set I actively sought to complete.  I finished off the 2010 set pretty quickly and I still need 11 more cards to complete the 2009 set.  And while I fell in love with these insert sets I made no move to aquire any of the other stand alone products other than cards for my Brewers team sets.

Robin's card was found in Topps Update, as 50 cards were released in each series.

It's a great looking card even if the photo used has graced lots of other cards.

  1. When the 2014 Turkey Red came out online, I bought four boxes in hopes that they would look like these. What a disappointment it was when they came out. I really like this card.
