Completed set: 2011 Topps Kimball Champions

Back in May of this year, I picked up the last card I needed to knock the 2011 Kimball Champions. It was a set that wasn't much on my radar until I picked up a mass of minis from my LCS two and a half years ago. From that box, I built the entire update series of Kimballs and about half the set that was seeded in packs of series 1 and 2. Having that many cards helped me better appreciate the minis, so set out building it.

When I posted the final card, I said I would scan the set at a later date. No better day than today for 10 scans.

Best looking card:  Campanella - page 5, middle row, far right
Worst looking card: Stanton - page 2, bottom row, middle card
How did he get in the set card: Drabek - page 10, middle row, middle card
Favorite card: Aparicio (Sox) - page 5, top row, 2nd card from left

It's a nice set. Glad I completed it. And I wish the Muppets did a a more obvious Queen song to fit this post, but this will do.


  1. nice! That's a good looking set. I've seen a few singles floating around here and there.

  2. Congrats on completing this set. Even though this set is only 4 years old it brings back some very fond memories for me.

  3. Very nice Jeff! Congrats on finishing it.

  4. Congrats! One of the better Flagship insert sets in recent memory.

  5. Nice work...this is such a beautiful set!
