Description

2001 Topps Gallery is a 151 card, all-painted, set issued in April 2001. The set consists of a 100-card short set (Cards #1-49 and #51-#101). Cards #102-#141 make up a Prospects and Rookies subset with Prospects issued one every 2.5 packs and rookies 1:3.5 packs. Cards #142-#150 were issued one every five packs.

The only prominent rookie in the set (that was included in packs) was Albert Pujols.

Willie Mays #50

Before the product's release, Topps announced that Willie Mays's card (#50 in the set) would not be available in packs. Instead, the card was given away as part of a promotion with Topps's Home Team Advantage (HTA) Hobby stores. In order to get the missing Mays card, which shows Mays in a posed shot holding a bat on his shoulder, collectors had to show a complete 149-card Topps Gallery set to their participating HTA dealer, who would then make the collector's set "complete" by issuing them their missing Mays card. Collectors had until October 24, 2001, to complete their sets and receive their Mays card.

However, in a move that was not announced until after the product's release, randomly seeded into retail packs of 2001 Topps Gallery was a completely different Willie Mays card, also sequentially-numbered as #50. This card, which shows a "head-and-shoulders" portrait, was printed in roughly the same quantities as the other "Legends" short-prints (cards #142-#150).

Due to the fact that many HTA dealers sold their Mays allocations on eBay rather than participate in Topps's promotion, and that not much retail wax was produced, the retail Mays is believed to be scarcer than the HTA version. A set is considered complete with either card.

Distribution

Hobby/Retail: 24 packs per box, six cards per pack (MSRP: $3). Eight boxes per Hobby case.
