2002 Topps Traded box


The 2002 Topps Traded set (with Topps Chrome) was released in October 2002. As with 2001 Topps Traded & Rookies, the set was available exclusively in pack form and bundled with Topps Chrome Traded. Each Hobby box yields one autograph or relic and one buyback from a previously released Topps Traded set -- although these cards are not marked as having been bought back.

The 275-card base set consists of 105 players and five managers who changed teams, 155 rookies and prospects, and a ten-card "Who Would Have Thought?" subset. For some inexplicable reason, Topps decided to short-print the 110 traded players and managers -- the first time Topps has purposely SPed base cards in their flagship brand.

As with most 2002 sets, the avalanche of rookie cards from the year before hurt the rookie card selection. The only notable rookie cards are of Dontrelle Willis, Jose Bautista, and Gavin Floyd.


Hobby/Retail: 24 packs per box, 10 cards (8 Traded, 2 Chrome) per pack. MSRP $3

HTA: 10 packs per box, 35 (28 Traded, 7 Chrome) cards per pack. MSRP $10
