Flashback Product of the Week: 2004 Topps Clubhouse Collection

In 2004 Topps released a product called Clubhouse Collection.  It is a slightly higher-end product where you can find two relics cards per pack.  There are no base cards to collect, only relics.  This product is loaded with plain white jerseys of players from yesterday, but you could get lucky and pull a relic of Cobb or Ruth.  When Clubhouse Collection first came out, I remember pulling a jersey of Kevin Millwood and somebody from the Rockies.  There was just a lot of overproduction of game jerseys with this product and it hasn’t been seen much since 2004.  You can still find boxes for around $180.00.

The Turkey Bullet

(I think this guy played for the Phillies once)

I thought I would check out Topp’s newest creation called Topps Town.  Using codes that can be found in packs of 2008 Topps Series 2 baseball cards you will be able to gain access to this site.  If you are a new user they supply you with a free code when signing up.  Your username and password are never shared with anyone else on the site.  You get to make a random name using their generator.  Mine came out to be “The Turkey Bullet”.  You can customize your avatar, trade virtual cards, and create your own clubhouse.  The more codes that you enter the more cards you can get.  Topps has created some cool games that you can play.  After playing these games you get points that can be used to buy more items for your avatar or clubhouse.  I think what Topps has done is pretty cool.  You can spend a lot of time creating your avatar.  Inserting the special cards with codes into packs of 2008 Topps Series 2 baseball cards should make it easy for kids to get.  It is one of the lowest priced products that Topps makes.
