The world's most trusted source in collecting

I know that it means every base from Series 1, 2, and Update obviously, and the insert cards, but does that also mean every auto, patch card, and silk card, plus black parallels of base cards? Any help would be appreciated.

Others try to do all of the parallels but for the average collector that would just cost too much. Same with autos and relics. I am trying to do the full auto and relic set on 2012 Archives and am about 75% done but there is some monster autos and one very rare relic that I am starting to doubt that I will ever get my hands on.

There are at least 9 parallel sets with 2011 Topps(Cognac, Diamond, Hope, Black, Gold, Factory Set Limited Edition, Factory Set Red Border, Walmart Black Border(Ser. 1 and 2), Blue Border(Update) and Target). It would be a tall order to put all of those together but it really comes down to your personal preference. We have a ton of 2011 Topps Update inserts for trade in our org. You are welcome to check us out for any of your needs.
