2005 Topps Pristine Legends Base

Year: 2005
Manufacturer: Topps
Set: Pristine Legends
Card Number: 43
Card Type: Base

COMC Black Friday Haul #23

It seems almost every year while shopping on COMC during Black Friday I manage to find a card or two that has slipped past me.  The 2005 Pristine Legends was the only year Topps produced the HOF/Retired set, and 2005 would be the last year for the Pristine brands 4 year run.  The Legends set had a different configuration than the regular Pristine set.  Each hobby box held 5 packs.  Each pack contained 6 base cards, one uncirculated refractor and one relic card.  There was one autograph per hobby box replacing the relic.  I already had two of the serial numbered uncirculated base refractors, but somehow missed picking up Robin's base card from this set.  Robin also has a relic and autograph to chase in this set.

  1. I was a huge fan of the Pristine brand, especially the 2002 set. I never really saw any 2005 Legends; the only single I have is this Yount.
