1988 Topps Gallery of Champions
Design Notes: These cards are made of aluminum, using the 1988 Topps design in a relief format. The backs contain statistics and biographical information. The cards are actually parallels of the players' flagship 1988 Topps cards.
Parallels and Similars: Bronze and silver parallels exist.
Distribution: Complete sets in velvet cases were sold through dealers; 1000 of the silver sets were produced.
Thoughts: I really like these sets, despite their small size. The detail is pretty good, especially for such a small card, and they can display well.
