Topps Baseball Updates & Highlights

The 2009 Topps Baseball Updates and Highlights cards hit shelves in October, boasting 180 traded veteran players and 55 rookies in the base set. Among the rookies included as chrome box-toppers (one per box) will be Jordan Zimmermann (base card pictured), Tommy Hanson, Gordon Beckham, Andrew McCutchen, Matt LaPorta, and Nolan Reimold.

Among the chase cards will be sketch cards, All-Star Game relics, Turkey Red, Career Bests, World Baseball Classic, Stadium Stamp, and even Legends of the Game autographs, which include a one-of-a-kind Ty Cobb cut signature auto.

Every hobby box will include one autograph or relic, and every HTA jumbo box will include two Relics and one autograph.
