Description

2007 Topps is a 661-card set released in two series. The first 330 cards were released in February, 2007 while Series Two (consisting of cards #331-#661) was issued in June. This was the first black-bordered Topps set since 1971; but unlike 1971 Topps, the 2007 design was not well received by collectors. The product was also hampered by a series of repetitive "Mirror" inserts.

Barry Bonds, whose exclusive trading card deal with Topps expired at the end of 2006, re-upped with Topps in time for the second series.

Brandon Morrow (#433), Daisuke Matsuzaka (#630), and Alex Gordon (#634) are the only notable rookie cards.

Derek Jeter and Topps's Decent Into Gimmckry

2007 marked a turning point for Topps and their relationship with The Hobby and card collectors for it was the first time they resorted to gimmickry to sell their product. Derek Jeter's base card (#40) was issued, unannounced, with the images of Mickey Mantle and then-President George W. Bush airbrushed into the background.

The card had the intended effect of creating "buzz" for Series One, as it drew many non-collectors into The Hobby -- and on the surface, this might seem like a good thing. Unfortunately, these uneducated "collectors" thought this was another Billy Ripken-esque error, and grossly overpaid for what was an ordinary Derek Jeter base card.

Since 2007, just about every Topps flagship baseball release (and some of the other brands as well) has had some sort of gimmick attached -- becoming progressively stupider by the year.

For the factory sets, both Mantle and Bush were removed from Jeter's card. Ironically, since so few factory sets were opened, the ungimmicked Jeter maybe rarer than the gimmick.

Gimmicks, Errors, and Variations

Wal-Mart Variations

In what would become an unfortunate taste of things to come, Topps randomly inserted into Series One packs sold only at Wal-Mart, the following four "variation" cards. Like gimmicks in future years, there is nothing on the card (other than the photo used) that differentiates the regular base card from the gimcrack.

Due to collector ambivalence, and the astronomical odds of finding one (1:3700/packs), few collectors are even aware of these card's existence.

292 Josh Fields (Running)


NoSigs

These six cards were randomly inserted into Series Two packs and, as the name suggests, without the player's facsimile signature. These cards were available in all S2 pack types and are much easier to find that the S1 Wal-Mart cards.

437 Paul LoDuca

481 Jim Thome

630 Daisuke Matsuzaka

634 Alex Gordon

660 Yadier Molina


Japanese

Topps randomly inserted into S2 packs a rendition of Daisuke Matsuzaka's rookie card in Japanese text. It is noticeably tougher to find than his base card, or his NoSig variation.

630 Daisuke Matsuzaka

Josh Gibson Home Run History

Much like Barry Bonds, Mickey Mantle, and Alex Rodriguez before them, Josh Gibson got the Mirror treatment in Series One. No one knew EXACTLY how many home runs Gibson hit, but that didn't stop Topps from releasing this 110-card insert anyway.

Unlike the Bonds, Mantle, and A-Rod sets, there are no details on the specific home run on any of the Gibson cards. Each card is (literally) the same, with the exception of a foil-stamped number on the front. If you've got one, you've got them all.

Williams 406

A 36-card set exclusive to Series One packs sold at Target, this Mirror commemorates Ted Williams's record-breaking .406 1941 season.

DiMaggio Streak

This 56-card Mirror celebrates Joltin' Joe's 56-game hitting streak in the 1941 season.

DiMaggio The Streak Before The Streak

This 61-card Mirror commemorates DiMaggio's 61-game hitting streak for the minor league San Francisco Seals in 1933.
