Let's start off with some base cards. One thing I noticed right away was how few cards there were of players that are still playing today. Then I realized that these cards were 12 years old. Here are a few cards featuring players that are still playing.
Here are couple of Golden Moments cards that I got in the same pack. I thought that was interesting.
Speaking of Mark McGwire...I thought this was a great shot of something that I remember seeing a lot.
I got a base card of Ken Griffey Jr., which was nice. I'm not sure if I already have it or not. But it wasn't my only Griffey out of the box.
Now, onto the inserts. 2001 was the 50th Anniversary of Topps (the Gold anniversary) so many of the inserts are gold themed.
Next are a couple of other inserts. Lot's of McGwire in this box. Also, Alex Rodriguez in a Mariners jersey. In 2001 these would have been amazing pulls. Today, not so much!
Next up are some reprint type cards. I was glad to get the Piazza.
As far as I know, 2001 was the first year to include the gold parallel cards numbered to the year. These were a tough pull though. At 1:17 packs I wasn't even guaranteed 2 for the box. I was happy that one was a D-Back!
Finally the Topps Combo cards were probably my favorite inserts, although I do have some questions about the titles; Latin Heat and Glove Birds. Here are the three that I pulled.
