2012 Topps Series 1 Baseball
In 2011 the theme for the flagship Topps baseball set was diamonds. With 2012 Topps Baseball, expect to see lots of gold. From parallels to inserts to the continuation and expansion of the popular code redemptions, gold is the thread that runs throughout. Hobby boxes promise either an autograph or relic card. Jumbo HTA boxes have one autograph and two relic cards. One of these relics isn’t a game-used piece but rather a manufactured relic card featuring pins, rings or real gold. 2012 Topps Series 1 Baseball follows the familiar format of a 330-card base set that includes 265 veterans, 30 rookies and 35 cards for league leaders, award winners and highlights.
Estimated Release Date: 2/1/2012

In 1972, Oakland A’s owner Charles Finley offered his players $300 if they would grow mustaches as part of a Father’s Day promotion. All 25 did and thus created a team trademark. P Rollie Fingers even had a clause written into his contract for the following season that paid him $300 for his handlebars and $100 for wax.
