Description

2001 Topps Reserve is a 151-card "Bonus Box" product released in August 2001. The final 51 cards make up a rookie subset with each serial-numbered. Cards #101-#145 and #151 are each serial-numbered to 1500 copies; while cards #146-150 were exclusive to retail packs and numbered to only 1170.

The first 555 copies of cards #101-#145 were submitted by Topps to PSA for grading then seeded into Hobby boxes as a chiptopper. Prior to encapsulation, Topps had each player autograph the slab's label "flip."

In addition to the pre-graded rookie card, each Hobby box also contained an autographed rookie baseball.

Distribution

Hobby: 10 packs plus one pre-graded autographed rookie card and an autographed baseball per box, five cards per pack.

Retail: 24 packs per box, four cards per pack.

Rookie Autographs

This 50-card set parallels the rookie subset (cards #101-#150) and exclusive to retail packs. Each card is serial-numbered to the production figures listed below.

NOTE: The design is identical to that of the base cards; however, unlike a conventional parallel, the set is sequentially-numbered different. Also, I number of fake Albert Pujols autographs are known to exist. The card in question is sequentially-numbered "TRA-3," and has a black holographic authentication sticker; but the card is not serial-numbered, and the autograph has been poorly forged.

Rookie Autographed Baseballs

Inserted into each Hobby box is a baseball autographed by a 2001 MLB rookie. Each ball is a standard MLB-issue baseball, but with a special Topps Reserve "TR" logo printed on one side panel and a black Topps hologram sticker on the other panel. Balls were packaged in a clear plastic cube and sealed with a Topps "FACTORY SEALED" sticker. The player is identified by a clear sticker affixed to the outside of the cube.

Two of the balls were only available as exchange cards that were exclusive to retail packs.
