Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Apple, & Blogging Get Topps Rookie Cards


Browsing through all the new 2011 Topps American Pie auctions is down right fun.  Topps has hit the nail on the head when it comes to this product.  The base set consists of 200 cards that take you back in time and I guarantee you will have some flashbacks to your childhood.  Each hobby box should contain at least (3) “hits”.  These could be any combination of autograph, relic, patch, stamp, and coin cards.

In this high-tech age, its interesting to see the first cards made of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Apple, and even blogging.  Its funny to see something low-tech like a baseball card commemorate something so technically advanced.  There are plenty of other people, places, events, and things that have their first cards within this product as well.  Just take a look at the checklist.  I thoroughly enjoy the tech-themed cards Topps included.  These cards bring back so many memories.  This is something a lot of modern-day card sets do not do.




Card of the Day: John F. Kennedy ’01 Topps American Pie Berlin Wall Relic

Twenty years ago the Berlin Wall was ripped down to unite the East and West sides of Germany.  The Berlin Wall has made its way on to a handful of trading cards, but in 2001 Topps created a product called American Pie that featured an image of John F. Kennedy and contained an actual piece of the Berlin Wall.  These can easily be found for under $10.00.


Flashback Product of the Week: 2001 Topps American Pie

In 2001 Topps released a product called American Pie which gave collectors the opportunity to pull cards of their favorite baseball players and some of the most famous American entertainers.  This came long before products like Americana, Celebrity Cuts, and any of the Razor stuff.  Each box contains 24 packs with 7 cards per pack.  You’ll likely find one or two relic and/or autographs per box.  Some of the more notable entertainers that you could pull relics of include Elvis, Joplin, and Sinatra.  I like the baseball relics from this product because some of them include a picture of the player’s rookie card.
