Bike Spokes and Shoe Boxes – 2013 Topps Stickers

Posted on 16 April 2013 by Tim Danielson


Per Box Items:
50 packs per box
8 stickers per pack

Topps sell sheet

What I pulled:
406 cards (6 came with the book)
107 duplicates
313/315 cards of the set
15 stickers make a SF Giants puzzle
The 30 team logo stickers come 2 to a sticker card.

The 2013 Topps sticker cards have a color action shot of the named player, Bordered in white the sticker cards have a simple graphic at the bottom with the players name and team logo. The graphic is trimmed in the teams primary colors. The card design is similar the 2013 Topps base set card design. The sticker card backs are photo-less and void of any statistics and player information. The plain white backs just have the sticker number and copyright information.

O. My. Gosh! I love Topps stickers books! It has been years since I completed one. I eagerly busted the packs as memories of my childhood came flooding back to me. This is the perfect product to get your kids into this great hobby. My sons and I had a couple of hours of fun while we sorted and placed the stickers. Nine players per team makes them really easy to sort. Most of the teams have either a mascot and or a veteran player sticker card. The team logo pages in the book also have a post season tracker bracket. I absolutely love the mix of retired stars and current players.  My oldest son got excited when he recognized a name he saw.  I had the same twinkle in my eye when I saw a player that I recognized from when I was his age.  No rookie cards or hits, but overflowing with value and awesome fun!. The only negative thing I have to say is that with over 100 duplicates I was still 2 cards short of completing the book. Really Topps? I know this is an entry level product, but you can do better than that!

The Bottom Line:
I give 2013 Topps Stickers a strong buy rating. You should be more than able to complete a base set with one box with lots of doubles to spare. Buy a box a trade me #34 Ben Zobrist and #172 Bryce Harper because I need them for my book and your extra Rickey Henderson and Tigers stickers!

The Final Score:
Final Ratings (Out of 10):
Base set collect-ability: 9/10
Big-hit Hunter: NA
Prospector Hunter: NA
Value: 10/10
Overall Quality: 10/10

Overall: 29/30 (97% = A)

Thanks to Topps for making this review possible!
