National Chicle Starting To Heat Up…

….for me at least! The more I look at the previews of this set and the details of what is incuded, the more excited I become about it. Additionally, Topps put out a note yesterday that mentioned a few players that had already fulfilled their autographs. Ryan Howard & Evan Longoria were a couple of the notables, but what struck me was that Tommy Hanson and Nate Mcclouth signed as well. What’s so special about this? Well they weren’t on the original checklist. Does this mean Topps is going to throw in a bunch of other autographs as well? If I hear of more signings for this product I will let you know. For now enjoy some of the product details below as well as preview images! Release date is 4/29/10!

TOPPS INTRODUCES ALL-PAINTED SET TO BASEBALL
Topps has commissioned 12 top sports artists to create the upcoming and much-anticipated 2010 Topps National Chicle Baseball.
The gorgeous 330 base-card set will include yesterday and today’s stars and even a fusion of the two. In addition, every box will guarantee 2 on-card Autographs and 1 Relic.
Artists include: Monty Sheldon, Jeff Zachowski, Dave Hobrecht, Paul Lempa, Brian Kong, Chris Felix, Don Higgins, Mike Kupka, Brett Farr, Jason Davies, Chris Henderson and Ken Branch.

Here’s a closer look…

BASE CARDS (330)
Veterans, Retired Players and Rookies (275 subjects) The likes of Ken Griffey, Derek Jeter and more Major League stars beautifully captured. (see Griffey image attached)
Retired Stars Revisited (25 subjects): See what legends would look like if they were playing today. Find Babe Ruth in Atlanta Braves uniform (retired with Boston Braves). What would Lou Gehrig look like in today’s Yankees uniform? (see Gehrig image attached)
Vintage Veterans (10 subjects): And what would today’s stars look like in yesterday’s uniforms? How about Manny Ramirez in Brooklyn Dodgers gear or Albert Pujols in the old St. Louis Browns threads?
Rookie Renditions (20 subjects): 2010 Rookies featured on classic Topps Rookie Cards. Look for Tyler Flowers on the famous no-name Frank Thomas RC and find Madison Bumgarner in the style of Gaylord Perry’s 1962 Topps RC.
