Hats Off to 206! Pack Breaks/Review

I've purchased several packs of the new Topps 206 recently, and decided to review my packs here. For those of you that haven't seen them, almost every player is pictured with their hat off in the tradition of the original 206 cards.

Pack 1:
  • Tommy Hanson
  • Pedro Feliz
  • John Maine mini- Baseball Caramels back
  • Glen Perkins gold
  • Howie Kendrick
  • Matt Cain
  • Prince Fielder
  • Mike Pelfrey
Pack 2 (Rangers Crazy!):
  • Jose Lopez
  • Josh Hamilton
  • Ian Kinsler
  • Julio Borbon- only player I've seen in the set with a hat on
  • Babe Ruth mini- Baseball Caramels back
  • Tommy Manzella RC gold
  • Cole Hamels
  • Justin Morneau
  • Johnny Evers
Pack 3:
  • Vladimir Guerrero
  • Kyle Blanks
  • Joba Chamerblain gold
  • Chipper Jones
  • Tommy Hanson mini- Gold Chrome #28/50
  • Adam Wainwright
  • Rick Ankiel
  • Scott Sizemore RC
  • Alexei Ramirez
Pack 4:
  • Wade Davis RC
  • Joe Mauer
  • Alex Rodriguez mini- Piedmont back
  • Barry Zito gold
  • Daniel Murphy
  • Kevin Kouzmanoff
  • Adrian Gonzalez
  • Chris Iannetta
  • Drew Stubbs RC
Pack 5:
  • Cliff Lee
  • Jacoby Ellsbury
  • Neftali Feliz mini- Baseball Caramels back
  • Travis Snider gold
  • Kosuke Fukudome
  • Ian Desmond RC
  • Andre Dawson
  • Travis Hafner
  • Matt Garza
Pack 6:
  • Josh Beckett
  • Carlos Zambrano
  • Gordon Beckham
  • Jeff Franis gold
  • Rick Porcello mini- Old Mill back
  • Justin Verlander
  • Cody Ross
  • Hunter Pence
  • Chase Utley

The Hanson gold mini is a really pretty card, the scan doesn't do it justice. At the same price per hobby pack as Allen & Ginter, you get one more card per pack and less random cards of ancient Greek gods and animals. Some of the backgrounds on the cards are plain solid colors, but others have great postcard-like pictures of historic building and stadium structures that stay true to the traditional roots of the T206 cards.
