2011 Topps Lineage Part 2

My 800th post. Whoot!

Here are the insert cards I got in the blaster box of Topps Lineage I bought while in Philadelphia. Every pack had at least one insert or parallel card. The insert cards are nice but it's a strange collection. Perhaps going with the Lineage theme, the inserts are based on past Topps issues, either cards that were inserts, or cards that were secondary sets.

2011 Topps Lineage Diamond Anniversary Refractors Roy Oswalt #93This should look familiar. The box gives the odds at 1:4 packs. I got 2 of them.

2011 Topps Lineage Refractors David Price #88A parallel set to the base set. The box did not give the odds of pulling one of these. I got just this one.

2011 Topps Lineage Stickers Albert Pujols #49Full sized cloth stickers. There are 50 in the set, inserted at 1:12 packs. I got just this one.

2011 Topps Lineage 1975 Mini Lou Gehrig #50Another full parallel set (200 cards), inserted at 1:4. I got two of them. Since I did not get the base cards of the same players, I don't know if the photos are the same as the base cards.

2011 Topps Lineage 1975 Mini Relics Dustin PedroiaThe box promised a relic and delivered. There are 198 of these, presumably a relic card for almost each mini card.

2011 Topps Lineage Stand-Ups Felix HernandezA 25-card set inserted at 1:12. This is the only one I got. The top of the player is die cut from the background so it can be folded up.

2011 Topps Lineage Rookies Michael Pineda #13Th12 20-card set is inserted at 1:6 packs. The design is based on inserts to late 1980s Topps.

2011 Topps Lineage Venezuelan Ichiro #14And to round out this strange collection of inserts, is this 25-card set (inserted at 1:12). The back looks just like the base cards, but in Spanish.

Solid pull on the relic. Is the Ichiro for trade?
