The next box in my order is 2009 Topps Ticket to Stardom. This product seemed intriguing to me for it's different concept of using real MLB game ticket stubs in relic cards. It ended up being quite fun to open.
The base cards were a bit bland. They would have been better if they had left the original color in the background of the photo.
Each pack also included a base parallel where the top and bottom edges of the card were die cut with a jagged edge like a torn ticket stub.
Rookie parallel 091/199
These rookie parallels don't make a lot of sense. There are lots of rookie cards that are unnumbered but then there are some that look no different except that they're numbered.
Blue parallel 75/99
Blue Parallel 26/99
Gold parallel 47/50
Next up are some of the inserts.
And the hits..
This product only lasted one year and I can kinda see why. The base set is a little boring and the inserts are much the same as Topps flagship. While the hits are a novel concept that I haven't seen anywhere else I don't think they carry enough value to carry the whole set alone. That said, it was fun to open since it was interesting and new to me. I probably won't open anymore though.
More boxes soon!
