Description

2001 Topps American Pie 150-card set released June 15, 2001. The brainchild of Florida Hobby store owner and Topps consultant Alan Narz, American Pie was a hybrid baseball/non-sports set designed to captured the essence of America at the height of the Baby Boomers Era of the '60's and '70's.

The first 115 cards in the set features Major Leaguers who played in the era, #116-#140 features historic events and #141-#150 features American icons of the '60's and '70's.

Each 24-pack Hobby box should yield at least one autograph or relic card.

American Pie can be seen as the first product the successfully incorporated non-sports subjects into a mainstream baseball card set -- a trend that would continue throughout the decade.

Distribution

Hobby: 24 packs per box, seven cards per pack (MSRP: $5)
