Description

The fst, and only, Topps National Chicle Baseball set is a 329-card, all-painted, set inspired by the 1935 football card set of the same name, and consists of 205 current players, 50 retried players, and 20 rookies all in an Art Deco design. The set also includes three, somewhat controversial, subsets: Retired Stars Revisited, Vintage Veterans and Rookie Renditions.

Retired Stars Revisited has 25 Hall of Fame-caliber players, painted in the modern uniform of the respective teams. This includes Babe Ruth in an Atlanta Braves uniform, and Lou Gehrig in a current Yankee batting-practice shirt with sideburns, a soul-patch, and a titanium necklace.

Vintage Veterans features ten current players painted into "throwback" style unis. Among the images include an Ichiro in a Seattle Pilots shirt, Albert Pujols wearing St. Louis Browns gear, and Ryan Howard in a Philadelphia A's uniform.

The Rookie Renditions have nothing to do with the 1935 National Chicle set. Instead collector's are treated to 20 different 2010 rookies painted into vintage Topps rookie cards of the past. For example, Chicago White Sox rookie Tyler Flowers is painted to resemble Frank Thomas on his 1990 Topps "NNOF" rookie, and Madison Baumgartner appears on a card inspired by Gaylord Perry's 1962 Topps rookie.

To say that Retired Stars Revisited, Vintage Veterans, and Rookie Renditions cards were not well received by collectors would be an understatement. The subsets, coupled with overall poor quality of the artwork led to National Chicle being discontinued after only one year.

Each 24-pack, 8-card, Hobby box is expected to yield two on-card autographs, one relic, one over-sized Cabinet box-loader and nine parallels.

Distribution

When first released, hobby boxes (24 packs per box, 8 cards per pack) cost $80-$90, individual packs were around $4 each.

Retired Stars Revisited

This subset features vintage players in modern-era uniforms. Except where noted, all players are depicted in the uniform of the team they are most associated with. For licensing purposes, card #166 was pulled from the base set and replaced with Duke Snider's RSR card -- which was on the original checklist as card #300. Unlike the rest of the RSRs, #166 is not short-printed.
