2009-10 Topps Basketball

What I pulled--
Gold Parallels (#ed to 2009) – 36, including Ricky Rubio, Kevin Garnett
Black Parallel – James Posey (#41/50
Chrome Parallels (#ed to 999) – DeMar DeRozan, Mike Miller, Baron Davis
Chrome Refractor – Shaquille O’Neal (#355/500)
Draft Snapshot – Ben Gordon, Deron Williams, Emeka Okafor, Chris Paul, Devin Harris, Allan Houston
Roundball Remnants – Aaron Brooks red jersey, Adam Morrison orange jersey
All-Star Dual Jersey – Steve Nash red (#16/199)

The good:
It is a base set, so you know that the Topps name on it means excellence. It is a
tradition that dates back across over 50 years across all of the sports, but is unending as far as
the quality is concerned. A sharp design, great pictures, blah blah blah. We’ve heard it all before
when it comes to Topps and base sets, and continues here.
The bad: Unfortunately, this will be the last Topps base set in basketball for a while. An era comes
to a close.
The rest: The inserts and parallels are plenty, and Topps loads up on the relic cards, with multiple
hits in every box. There is no Chrome release this year, obviously, so Topps throws those cards in
here for a little extra bonus value, as well.
The verdict: Topps goes out with a bang with this set. It is just a shame it has to end.
The grade:
