Parallels

All 230 base cards (including the ten Hobby only Autographed Rookies) are available in the following parallels.

  • Blue (serial-numbered to 500 copies)
  • Orange (serial-numbered to 250 copies)
  • Red (one-of-one; Hobby only)
  • Printing Plates (set of four for each card; Hobby only)

Multiple copies (up to 19 of the same card) were sold on eBay during the last week of August of 2010. These cards look exactly like the red one-of-one cards however they are missing the foil 1/1 stamp. The origin of these cards is unknown. Entire uncut sheets of red parallels without the 1/1 stamps appeared on eBay during the first week of December 2010. Some say that these cards were printed in case someone returns a red 1/1 that was damaged. It's unknown how these sheets made it out of Topps and into the secondary market.

Gold

All 220 non-autographed base cards and all 110 Prospects inserts (see below) are available in a one-per-pack parallel.
