2009 Topps T-206 Huh?
Hey guys, Drew back here, with another soon to become famous before I touch a single card from the set review! This time, it is 2009 Topps T-206, shall we?
Well, to start off, this is kinda similar to two sets from 2009, Goudey and Allen & Ginter. I say Goudey because, some of the cards are really nice, but some are REALLY ugly. That Gehrig card in the link is, uh, yucky, to say the least. One thing that I don't like is that it is too similar to Allen & Ginter that it gets annoying. In my opinion it looks better than Goodwin & Goudey, but not as good as Allen & Ginter.
Allen & Ginter/T-206 Similarities:
- Old base design
- Mini Relics in frame
- WAY too many mini parallels
There are more, but those are the big 3, that make these too similar. Even some of the base cards have the same picture (allen & ginter, t-206). Really Topps? At least he's not in an Brewers uniform, or even the Indians uniform though.
What makes this a nice product is that the photography (most of it) is fantastic!
Overall without touching any of it: 7/10
But hey, you never know!
P.S., if you're 6 or older you are allowed to open packs of this :)
