Completed insert set – 2011 Topps Lineage 3D

31 01 2012

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.

I never hit on one of these in any Lineage I bought, unfortunately. Not even one… The only one I’ve actually seen in real life was the Pence one and I didn’t think it was too exciting. But seeing yours all out like that, the set looks real nice. Would look cool in one of those 24-card slots picture frames. Leave Texieira out, lol.
