    Topps Factory Set Exclusives

    I'm intrigued by the Topps factory set exclusive parallels. I think this is the list, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    2010 #/299 red
    2011 #/245 red
    2011 set #/75 silver sparkle (only in Holiday factory sets)
    2012 #/190 orange
    2012 Update #/210 orange (only in Holiday factory sets)
    2013 #/230 orange
    2014 #/199 orange
    2015 #/179 orange sparkle

    This year's are lower than ever, so grab one if you need it. You might be waiting a long time for the next one (I missed the one 2012 Sizemore I saw). Even though they are numbered high enough, with just 5 per factory set they made it hard to find any one player. And to build the set? For plain paper base Topps cards of the 21st century, probably the only bigger challenge is the 2012 Gold Rush parallel set.

    Only other one I can think of is the 2001 Topps Employee parallel. Those were issued as complete sets so are easier to find. They were marked factory sets, each card had an embossed stamped logo, limited to 151 sets (unnumbered).

    Is that the " Limited Edition " set, or a separate one?

    Separate, the Limited edition had limited edition stamped in Gold. These were embossed stamps, this blog post breaks it down well:

    There were these to I believe "2011 Topps Holiday Factory Set Bonus Pack S#/75".
    Card Stats 2001-2016: Yadier Molina - 1658/2852 = 58.13 % of all cards,
    1596/1902 = 83.91 % of all non 1/1 cards, 144/178 = 80.90 % of all non 1/1 auto cards, 260/375 = 69.33 % of all non 1/1 memorabilia cards.
    Looking for Yadier Molina items, let me know what you have anytime.

    It's a minor thing, but isn't the 2011 red?

    I took a quick look at the 2011 and they looked orange but they are actually red, or at least they're called red.

    I didn't even know about the 2011 Holiday #/75s. But that's why I started the thread. I guess I have another card to chase.

    Were those released in sets (i.e., the full set of /75s issued together), or individually? Never seen or heard of a Gomes card.

    Not in sets, individually in special 5 card packs within the holiday set.

    Lucky you. I've been looking for the Jeter since those exclusives came out and I still have never seen one.

    I've been searching for the Wakefield 2011 holiday forever, only one of his on that list I am missing. I've seen fewer of those, even proportionally, than the others by a wide margin in my searches.
