Description

2001 Topps Traded & Rookies with Topps Chrome was released in October 2001 and features a 265-card base set. For the first time since 1995, Topps Traded was sold exclusively in pack form and for the first time would be "bundled" with the parallel Chrome Traded. Each 10-card pack contained eight 2001 Topps Traded and two 2001 Topps Chrome Traded cards.

The 265-card set features 99 cards of players who changed teams during the 2000 off-season and 2001 season; 45 reprints of classic Topps Traded cards; six managers who were hired for the 2001 season; 60 prospects who have never appeared on a Topps card of their own; and 55 rookies who made their Major League debut, or were promoted to the 40-man roster, in 2001.

Notable rookies include Justin Mourneau, Jose Reyes, Ichiro Suzuki (Topps Chrome Traded only), and Albert Pujols (Topps Traded only).

Ichiro and Albert Pujols rookie cards

Ichiro Suzuki's Topps rookie card appeared in the second series of 2001 Topps Baseball. However, due to licensing issues, Ichiro was unable to be included in the second series of 2001 Topps Chrome and was replaced with a card of Albert Pujols -- who did not appear in Topps Baseball.

Topps included Pujols in both Topps Traded and Topps Chrome Traded as card #T247; however, because Pujols was already in Topps Chrome, only the regular Topps Traded card is considered a "true" rookie.

As for Ichiro, a 266th card was added to the Topps Chrome Traded set and is considered his "true" Topps Chrome rookie card.

Prospects

The following 60 Minor League prospects make their Topps flagship debut. Licensing restrictions in place at the time limited the number of non-Major League 40-man roster players Topps could include in many of their products. As per Topps's contract with the MLBPA, these restrictions did not apply to either Topps Traded or their Bowman-branded sets.

Parallels

All 265 Topps Traded cards are available in a Gold parallel, which is serial-numbered to 2001 copies.

Topps Chrome Traded

Albert-Pujols-Ichiro-Suzuki.jpg?id=c08bcb9a-f55e-4f57-9b72-8aa98187d89e&size=original&side=front&.jpg Albert-Pujols-Ichiro-Suzuki.jpg?id=c08bcb9a-f55e-4f57-9b72-8aa98187d89e&size=original&side=back&.jpg

This 266 card set parallels the 2001 Topps Traded set with each pack containing two Chrome cards.

To make up for his exclusion (for licensing purposes) from the 2001 Topps Chrome set, a 266th card of Ichiro Suzuki was produced. This card is a copy of his 2001 Topps card and is considered his "true" Topps Chrome rookie. Albert Pujols's Topps Chrome Traded card is not a true rookie, as he had taken Ichiro's place in the Topps Chrome checklist.

All 266 Topps Chrome Traded cards are available as a "Retrofractor" parallel, which are limited (but not serial-numbered) to 500 copies. Retrofractors are so named, because they are Chrome Refractors printed on old fashioned grayback cardstock.
