Today is the day that Topps collectors have been waiting for -- the release of 2013 Topps Update. Topps Update has historically been the icing on the cake as it puts the final touches on the baseball card season. Collectors can find current year highlight cards, players that have new teams, and rookie cards of players called up to the big leagues during the season.
Here is what to expect…
2013 Topps Update Sell Sheet 1 of 7…
On the first page of the sell sheet, Topps promotes 2013 Topps Update with the same relic/auto ratio it has had for years -- one autograph or relic per hobby box and one autograph and two relics per hobby jumbo box.

330 base cards in the Update set and nine different kinds of parallels. If I wasn't already collecting other things, I might consider trying to put together the blue sapphire set -- 990 cards and each serially numbered to 25. I've done a limited set like this before as a challenge and completed it. The only problem is that sets like these never appreciate in value.

Here is another insert that collectors like -- minis! I like them even more because they are of the iconic 1971 Topps design -- my birth year. You can put away your black magic marker as these don't chip like the originals did.

There are six different autograph types and three different autograph relic types to keep collectors happy. I personally wish there was just one type with a better player selection. Make it on-card only and abolish the stickers please!

In addition to the regular autographs, there are several all-star game autograph types to clamor after. I like the Update sets simply for the reason that they do a good job of capturing moments of the all- star game.
Stay tuned as I'll bring you the Top 10 best pulls from Brent's amazing 60 jumbo and 5 regular case break! That's a lot of cards. I should have that posted in about a week or so. Thanks!
