Florida Marlins 2009 Topps ‘Ticket To Stardom’ Team Set
Man, I could really get behind Topps making this brand and annual product – or at least a subset featured within the flagship brand.
The 2009 ‘Ticket To Stardom’ product takes on the look of a ticket stub, and for a sports card, it works perfectly.
The colors are a perfect match to the Marlins’ old Black, Teal, and White color scheme. And Topps did a great job inserting action images into this set.
The set is small, but it looks great:
Imagine if Topps issued these today and somehow incorporated the date into the card’s design. Commemorating the no-hitters of Kershaw, Beckett, and Lincecum. Honoring the comeback of Aroldis Chapman. Celebrating career hit #2,500 of Adrian Beltre and home run #500 of Albert Pujols.
This is definitely a set and theme that I can get behind.
Dear Topps, please consider a comeback for ‘Ticket To Stardom’. Thank you.
