    Question about 2006 and 2006 Topps Factory Sets (team versions)

    I am a Cardinals team set collector. I have complete factory Topps sets from 2006 and 2007 that are the Cardinals version. On the factory box it states that inside are 5 unique Cardinals cards exclusive to this set (says this on 2006 and 2007 set). See picture below.

    My question is - what are these cards? How do I find them without opening my factory sets.

    Also, (as stated in another thread), I am wondering about the pictured Albert Pujols card on the right side of the factory box. I have never seen this version of his card. Any help would be appreciated.

    You might try this blog. I know this collector is all about tops cards and may have noted or even broken the sets for the special cards.

    I have one of the Dodger factory sets and found the list somewhere online, but don't remember now there.

    I'm no expert on Pujols but I think that picture on the set is a mockup and they chose to change to a vertical layout to fit the box layout and horizontal on the actual card. It's the same picture correct? Then he has the fielding (vertical one) and the the team set with him beginning to run to first.

    I think you are probably right on the card on the box being a mockup. On your statement about it being the same picture, that was ALMOST a good call. I had to look closely. It is slightly different. I believe it is the same at bat and the same swing. Look at the person to the left of his belt buckle...same person with same hat and sunglasses. Also, 2 people to the left of that person is the same person with a red STL hat. The picture on the box is a millisecond later as he is dropping the bat.

    (Yes, that is my signed card!)

    The bigger question is why the Pirates got one of the five team factory sets in 2006.

    Probably because the All-Star game was in Pittaburgh that year

    That is correct. The exclusive set was originally for sale at the Fanfest in Pittsburgh. Card #1 was Matt Capps, not Matt Cas.
