Topps‘ second year of producing officially licensed minor-league baseball cards will start off with a little something extra — four hits in every box of 2011 Pro Debut.
Set to arrive in late May, Pro Debut will consist of 330 cards — apparently just one series this year — but will pack two autographs and two game-used Relics in every 24-pack box along with eight parallels and 18 insert cards. (Last year’s two-series release included two autographs and one memorabilia card in every hobby-only box.)
New this year are Side-by-side Dual Autographs which pair two players together, while the rest of the lineup is pretty similar. There are Gold (/25), Red (1/1) and Blue (/199) parallels, while there are also printing plates to be found. The insert sets include Single-A All-Stars, Double-A All-Stars and Triple-A All-Stars.
The Relic lineup will include 20 players and will include MiLB logoman cards (1/1s), Red patches (/5) and Red Relics (/5) along with Gold (/50) jerseys, too.
Also back will be Debut Cuts autographs — a group headlined by Pittsburgh Pirates draft pick Jameson Taillon.
Among the names on the dual autographs are Dustin Ackley, Manny Machado and Mike Moustakas (among others), while the Solo Signatures list includes Moustakas, Michael Choice, Josh Vitters and a few others (and some TBDs).
