2010 Topps (and new Rickey's) Have Arrived!

I was able to sneak off to Target at lunch today, and grabbed a few packs of the newly released 2010 Topps. I was hoping to snag a Rickey or too, but I would have no such luck. But, I figured someone out there has pulled one (or will in the near future). All of the 2010 Topps below are for trade for 2010 Rickey's, or any other Rickey that I need for that matter.

This is the A's Franchise History card, and it was a nice surprise to see Rickey on the front!

Here's the Rickey's that should be in the set:

Athletics Franchise History card #137 (as well as any parallels)
The Cards Your Mother Threw Out MTO29 Rickey Henderson
Legendary Lineage LL30 Rickey Henderson / Carl Crawford
Peak Performance Relic PPR-RHE Rickey Henderson
Hat Logo Relic MHR-110 Rickey Henderson
Hat Logo Relic MHR-111 Rickey Henderson
Hat Logo Relic MHR-112 Rickey Henderson
Hat Logo Relic MHR-113 Rickey Henderson

This is the back of the "Cards Your Mother Threw Out" insert, the front of which looks just like his 1980 Topps rookie.

In the preliminary checklist, these were referred to as "Past & Present," but they must have changed it to "Legendary Lineage" somewhere along the line. This is the last of the Rickey inserts in the set, the only cards I've yet to see are the Hat Logo and Peak Performance Relics, which will show up once the hobby boxes are released.

Here's what I have for trade:

I pulled the Past & Present card. I'll set it aside for you, if you like.

ManOfSteal said...

Awesome, thanks! I've been meaning to send you an e-mail about the other Rickey's you just sent. I'm sure that I can come up with an itneresting White Sox card for you.

There is a Blue Jays, Yankees and Dodgers hat cards on eBay right now. Also a cyan printing plate for the A's franchise card. I want to pick up the hat cards and the bat card but money is tight right now.

ManOfSteal said...

Thanks Hendersonfan. I was able to pick up all 3 of those from box breaks on message boards. Now all I need is the A's Hat Relic, as well as the A's Frnachise Black parallel. The #1/1 is definitely nice, but was out of my price range.

Hendersonfan said...

Yeah, I don't even try for the 1/1's. My pockets have never been deep enough to do that. When I get my tax return I might splurge and get the hat relics if I can find a reasonable price. I like how they all have a logo too.

Hey - I am having an issue finding the CMT-29 Rickey Henderson card on Beckett online. I can find the 2010 Topps mto29 but not the cmt-29. It is the one you have the back pictured on this blog. Any hints?

ManOfSteal said...


That is just one of the many "errors" that Beckett has made lately. Here's what they have listed:

2010 Topps Cards Your Mom Threw Out #MTO29 Rickey Henderson

2010 Topps Cards Your Mom Threw Out Original Back #MTO29 Rickey Henderson

However, there is not MTO29, there's the regular code (on the blog) which is the CMT29, as well as the original back, which looks like the back of his rookie card.

It looks like they have corrected this mistake for Series 2, as the new Rickey that is included (his 1981 Topps cad) is listed as CMT88 for both the regular and originals backs.

Hope this helps!
