Release Date: May 23, 2012
With many great autographs to collect plus plenty of insert and parallel cards this set and should be a big hit and this blogger is looking forward to May of 2012. I just hope that Banks Autographed Originals finds its way into the collection.
The 200-card base set will be divided into five 40-card subsets. Four of those will feature a variety of players, although mostly current stars, on cards meant to evoke one of four classic Topps designs: 1954, 1971, 1980 and 1984. The remaining 40 cards make up the short-printed All-Time Fan Favorites subset. Like the All-Time Fan Favorites sets of the middle part of the last decade
