2001 Topps Series 1 Hobby Edition

I'm back after a busy weekend with a pack of 2001 Topps here in the Cafe. This was the 50th anniversary for Topps cards.

2001 Topps Series 1 Hobby Edition
#241 Travis Miller (Twins)
#274 Jeff Brantley (Phillies)
#165 Andy Benes (Cardinals)

#100 Derek Jeter (Yankees)
Gold #222 Hector Carrasco (Twins) sn'd 0586/2001
#230 James Baldwin (White Sox)

#4 Garret Anderson (Angels)
#65 David Cone (Yankees)
#283 Ricky Bottalico (Royals)
#254 Jose Vidro (Expos)

A couple of backs.

Total Cards:
Teams Represented: 8
Rookie Cards:
Sub Sets:
1 (Gold sn'd /2001)
Inserts: 0
Keepers for Me:
 3 (Jeter, Cone, GOLD)

Front Design: 8.5 out of 10 Good pictures, all in game action shots, nice design, good border color, nice gold foil for 50 years, team logo.
Back Design:
 8 out of 10 Nice design, full career stats, player photo, nice write ups about player, good player info, no team logo.
Player Selection:
7 out of 10
Good, all players had/have good long careers.
FINAL OVERALL RATING: 2 RBI Single into left field. A great layout on both sides, 3 keepers including a gold makes it a hit. I very much like this set and may have to try and build it down the road. The trend of Yankees and no Mets continues but that's ok.

Thanks for Reading!
