Description

2001 Topps Stars is a 200-card set released exclusively to Topps' Home Team Advantage dealer network in June, 2001. The base set consists of 200 cards with no short prints or variations.

Autographs & Game-Used

Autographs

The 13-card set feature on-card autographs of some of baseball's great players. The cards were inserted in all packs at a rate of 1:353 packs. More than half the players had not returned their cards in time for packout and thus were inserted as exchange cards. The redemption cards expired on 4/30/03. Eric Munson seems very misplaced to be in this set.

Bats

This 21-card card set features game used bat chips from many of baseball’s rising stars. The cards were inserted in two differnt groups with Group A inserted at 1:216 packs and Group B at a rate of 1:1368 packs. The overall insert rate was 1:187 packs.

Most of the players featured in this set went on to have very good major league careers but by far the biggest prospects in this group at the time failed to have an impact at the major league level. Scott Rolen and Lance Berkman are by far the biggest names in this set.
