The Gallery brings us closer....

As of writing this I have officially passed my 2,000 unique card of Cutch. These three cards from Topps Gallery brought me within one.

I had made a bunch of purchases in early December revolving around Topps Gallery and Panini Chronicles and National Treasures.

It was going to be a fun race to see which card my 2,000th unique Cutch card would be.

Pictured above are the 1951 Heritage Green Border numbered to 250 copies.  The art is drawn by Dan Bergren.  Remember his name as he will be appearing on this blog again in the future.

The Orange border base card is numbered to 25 copies and the Artist Proof isn't numbered.  The base cards were drawn by Mayumi Seto.

As a comic fan and art fan I have recently really taken a liking to sketch cards.  I have a few artist proofs rolling in.  It's subtle differences between the artists that I like about how they capture the athlete.

The sticker autographs in the set weren't very appealing, but I think many fans enjoyed this Wal-Mart exclusive release.

What were your thoughts?


  1. I think this set came out really nice. I don't have any Wal-marts near me, so hopefully I can snag a few. Congrats on 2,000! What an accomplishment.

  2. 2,000? Wow! Congratulations on hitting that major milestone.

    As for Gallery, I honestly haven't acquired any of it yet and I've been to Wally World several times since it came out. I guess it's just not my bag.

  3. Congratulations on 2K! I've been a supporter of Topps Gallery since the mid 90's. Sadly... I'm not a Walmart guy, so I probably won't be adding any of this year's product... unless I find an affordable set on eBay.

  4. 2000 cards of one person is an incredible achievement. I've been "supercollecting" my favorite NBA player since 1999 and I just forced him past the 500 mark on COMC this past August.

  5. I'm a big fan of the Gallery design. Loved it back in the 90's and early 2000's as well. Haven't made any purchases just yet.
