Topps announced Friday afternoon that the famed T206 design will return for another year as Topps 206 will arrive on Aug. 30 packing one autograph and one Relic card per 20-pack hobby box.

The showcase for multi-branded mini cards will include 1/1 Red Chrome Carolina Brights cards, while there will be stamp cards, Gold Chrome Piedmont cards (limited to 50) and 1/1 T206 Cut Signature mini-book Relics to be found as well.

The base set will consist of 300 cards with veterans, legends and rookies in the mix — 50 of those cards being short-prints. The Mini parallels will include the Carolina Brights, Cycle, American Caramel, Piedmont, Old Mill and Polar Bear as well as 50 cards that will be found as silks.

Among its insert offerings are a 20-card Historical Events set that includes such firsts and notables as subway cars with side doors, the Army’s first military plane, the first Lincoln penny minted, the first U.S. junior high school, the first radio contest, and the “world’s first female cop.” For those more interested in baseball cards in their baseball sets, there’s an 80-card stamp set (well, they’re close to baseball cards) as well as Bronze parallels and the MLB Logoman Continuity program that will continue here. (Get it… continuity?)

The autograph lineups will include American Caramel (a new addition), which will be 35 cards, as well as T206 Cut Signatures (1/1s) along with the previously mentioned cards. (Get a preliminary autograph checklist after the jump.)

More to come.

Also new this year are Mini book Relic cards, a 50-card set that will be found one per case with each of them limited to just 50 copies. Also new are T206 Dual Relics, which will feature 25 players, while the familiar Polar Bear and Old Mill Relic parallels return.

Hobby-exclusives worth noting are T206 buybacks as well as printing plates of both the minis and the standard cards.

Not impressed … and you know I love vintage sets.

Comment by Newspaperman

One exception though, that horizontal dual relic is nice.

Topps 206? Again? Really, Topps?

Here’s an idea. Just call it what it is: “Allen & Ginter Series Two.”
