2011 Topps Tribute Base

Year: 2011
Card Manufacturer: Topps
Card Set: Tribute
Card Number: 26
Card Type: Base

I've always really liked the Tribute base cards.  Probably because Tribute is a hit driven product the base cards are relegated as filler.  That's too bad because they are well done cards.  Shiny and printed on think card stock and of course they come in a rainbow of flavors.  I especially like Robin's 2011 card because it uses a photo that wasn't over used in production that year. I won't say Topps didn't reuse it, and right now I'm too lazy to find out, from what I can remember you don't see this image used too often. Plus it's a great mid 70's photos and he looks like he's going to bunt. Heck it could be from his rookie year.  Robin also has a few relics in the set and a really nice triple auto with Paul Molitor and Ryan Braun

  1. I really do like the Topps Tribute base cards. As you say, it's too bad that they are relegated to second class status thanks to the hit-driven nature of the set.
