12 packs of 45 cards.
You could only get these boxes from Home Team Advantage hobby stores, and you can see why. You get 540 cards in a box.
This issue celebrated Topps’ 50th year. The Ichiro Suzuki rookie card highlights the second series. Jake Peavy and Edwin Encarnacion are among the other rookies.
A gold parallel set exists. In regular packs, it is fairly difficult to find. However, in these HTA packs, you find one every three packs. Star cards are valued at 25 times the regular cards.
Normally 1:25 in regular boxes, A Look Ahead inserts are just 1:5 in these jumbo packs. The check out players on their way to the Hall of Fame. Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Ken Griffey Jr., Chipper Jones, Ivan Rodriguez, Nomar Garciaparra, Pedro Martinez and Vladimir Guerrero are part of this set.
A Tradition Continues, which are, again, easier to get in these HTA packs (1:5), features players that carry on their careers into the 21st century. Among the stars are Mike Piazza, Randy Johnson, Roberto Alomar, Greg Maddux, Jeff Bagwell, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Tony Gwynn, Manny Ramirez, Roger Clemens, Frank Thomas, Jim Thome, Griffey, Jeter, Garciaparra, Ivan Rodriguez, Martinez, and Guerrero.
Autographed memorabilia cards include managers, with a piece of game-used base and their signatures.
Another great 1:5 insert is a card of players who performed before there were Topps cards, like Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Walter Johnson, Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Rogers Hornsby, Honus Wagner, and Joe DiMaggio.
Too many inserts to keep naming. Obviously the HTA packs are loaded.
