Topps Pays Homage to Legendary Turkey Red Set

2005 Topps Turkey Red Baseball - Albert Pujols Card Topps is pleased to announce that this summer it is paying homage to the legendary 1911 Turkey Red Baseball set with its own rendition featuring today's stars - 2005 TOPPS TURKEY RED BASEBALL.

The original 1911 Turkey Red tobacco card set, considered by many hobbyists to be the most gorgeous baseball card set ever produced, consisted of oversized "Cabinet" cards measuring 5 " x 8" and featured some of the most stunning artwork ever captured on a baseball card.

Topps has recaptured these classic visuals and has given them a modern day twist which links today's superstars with yesterday's legends. Collectors can now see Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez on the picturesque baseball landscapes that Napoleon Lajoie, Honus Wagner and Tris Speaker once graced.
