I am offering for sale a lot of Topps T206 Baseball cards from the 2009 set, there are base cards, minis and parallels included in this lot; there will also be one autographed rookie card with Piedmont border.
The cards are as follows,
178 base cards out of 300,
9 no number picture variation short prints out of, I believe, 50,
35 bronze border parallels,
31 Piedmont back minis,
6 Polar Bear back minis,
2 Old Mill back minis,
2 Cycle back minis numbered out of 99.
Very vague description, there's no mention of who the auto will be of or the cycle backs. So how do you think I did?
Here are all the base cards, a nice big mountain for me to sort through! It contained the usual suspects and was nice to go through. The one thing I dislike about the set is that there are no stats on the back. Still the cards themselves are very well done.
This base card jumped out at me. Its Josh Hamilton of the Rangers. How cool is this picture?
Next the short prints. They could have picked a different picture for the Mantle since this is the same as some of his checklists that are featured in the set. I really like the Arod (bottom left) with the New York skyline in the back.
The Polar bear backs
The Old Mill backs. Not to shabby, Johnson and Gehrig.
There was also another little bonus in the box that arrived. One that wasn't advertised in the auction description and it was a card that blew all the other cards out of the water, even the Lincecum Cycle back.
A Gold chrome mini numbered out of 50! This was a HUGE surprise! I didnt even now that 2009 206 had gold chrome minis, I thought that was just for 2010.
All in all not bad. Also included were two empty hobby boxes, T206 and A&G that the cards were packed into so that was also cool.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring? I'm still waiting on a few more packages.
