First look: 2012 Topps Solid Golden Greats

By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

With five days remaining until the arrival of the hobby’s most collected baseball card set, Topps has pulled back the curtain on a set of rather lustrous cards that will be found in packs of 2012 Topps as redemptions.

They are the Solid Golden Greats, 1/1 cards made out of 14-karat gold that have been slabbed in a custom holder by Beckett Grading Services, the grading and card authentication division of Beckett Media.


There are 16 cards — stars from the past and present — to be found in packs of the flagship baseball card line and they can only be found in hobby boxes.

The preliminary checklist:

SGG-HA Hank Aaron SGG-RC Roberto Clemente SGG-TC Ty Cobb SGG-JD Joe DiMaggio SGG-LG Lou Gehrig SGG-DJ Derek Jeter SGG-SK Sandy Koufax SGG-MM Mickey Mantle SGG-WM Willie Mays SGG-AP Albert Pujols SGG-CR Cal Ripken Jr. SGG-JR Jackie Robinson SGG-NR Nolan Ryan SGG-BR Babe Ruth SGG-TS Tom Seaver SGG-ICH Ichiro Suzuki
