Cal Ripken Jr. 2012 Topps ‘A Cut Above’ Die-Cut

Cal Ripken Jr. 2012 Topps ‘A Cut Above’ Die-Cut

The ‘A Cut Above’ subset that Topps issued in 2012 is a pretty impressive set of cards to look at.  The design is sharp and the coloring of the cards is superb.  And when you factor in the die-cut edges, you have a very nice issue by Topps.

The set is limited to just 25 players, featuring both legends and modern players.  It is nice to see that Cal made the cut (or, die-cut) for this limited checklist.

Here is his card from the set:

I told you it was nice.

The extra Orange details in the border of the card really add a nice team-themed pop to the card.  And even with a smaller surface area for the card due to the cut and shape of the cardboard, you are not missing any action.

I LIKE IT!!!

  1. I dig the Sandy Koufax from this set.

  2. I like seeing Cal playing baseball instead of waving his hat. And I love when Cal waves his hat.
