Here’s another Lineage insert set I’ve completed – and this one may be my favorite (except for the 75 mini set – which I hope to complete some day, but I don’t think that will happen soon).
Info about the set:
Set description: “Designed after the revered test-issue 1968 3D set, featuring 25 stars of today, utilizing life-like 3D technology.” This is another tribute to a past oddball set. The 1968 3D cards are pretty expensive to find, but is a cool set. Here’s my previous post comparing the current set with the old set. The set has a white border with a yellow player name and a pink oval with the team name. The cards have (naturally) a 3D effect, and are blank-backed and unnumbered like the 1968 cards. The old set had 12 cards, but this year’s version has 25 cards.
Set composition: 25 cards, 1:12 (2011 Topps Lineage)
Hall of Famers: None – only current players.
How I put the set together:
- 4 cards from my two hobby boxes
- 2 cards from trades
- 1 card from a blaster
- 6 cards from Check Out My Cards
- 12 cards from Sportlots
Thoughts on the set: Despite some flaws, I like this product, and this is my favorite insert set. I like that this one was only 25 cards; it was a challenge to collect it, but unlike some of the other insert sets that are 50 cards, it’s not impossible.
Card that completed my set: Joey Votto
This is one of 2 cards I got picked up from a Sportlots purchase.
Highest book value: Albert Pujols & Derek Jeter
Best card (my opinion): Troy Tulowitzki
This is the best action shot and has a good background, which lends well to the 3-D effect.
My Favorite Reds card: Joey Votto
He’s the only Red in the set.
