Box Busters preview gallery: 2010 Topps National Chicle baseball cards by Chris Olds

While plenty has been said about the forthcoming 2010 National Chicle baseball card set from Topps, only a few have gotten their hands on the actual cards — well, other than all those athletes who signed on-card autographs — in advance of its release next week.

But the Beckett crew has busted a pair of hobby boxes for an upcoming Box Busters video — perhaps a pair of interesting, perhaps controversial breaks — and the results are in the microwave for now readying for release tomorrow.

Until then, though, feast on these actual card scans that show you a bit more of what Chicle is all about…

meh … pretty underwhelming

Comment by Newspaperman

I am a huge baseball fan, but the only think I can think of when I see Topps Chicle cards is that they’re both ugly and cheap for the price per pack they get sold for at hobby shops. I wish they’d move on to something that at least looks good.

This set isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Although the Babe Ruth as an Atlanta Brave, and Carlos Carrasco as Dennis Eckersley are still a FAIL.

Terrible looking cards…I get the feeling that this was an art project for some local community college.

Inconsistent with a few good looking cards but most looking like crap.

Thank you to the “powers that be” who thought it was a good idea to get rid of Upper Deck from the baseball landscape. Now we’re stuck with this garbage (between this, Topps 206 and Topps Unique, Topps owns all 3 of the worst products ever). Man, I never thought I would long for the days of cards in a can!
