Topps Attax returns to baseball diamond with new look for 2011


By Chris Olds | Editor

Topps Attax is returning to the baseball diamond once again in 2011 but this time, Topps says the trading card game will be a little different.

There will be more cards in every pack, a new game format, a new design, new packaging, a “new marketing plan” and, in short, it’s “a whole new ballgame,” according to the company.

Attax will arrive in April with $7.99 starter kits that will consist of a 29-card deck, two foil cards and one ToppsTown card. Attax also will be found in “hanger packs” — jumbo/rack packs for the typical card collectors. Each of those contains 24 batter cards, three pitchers cards and a Mascot card. In addition, each will include a Stadium card, a foil batter card, a ToppsTown and a rules sheet and playmat. There also will be 24-pack standard pack boxes as well.

Really, though, it appears that the rules and game-play are the biggest changes — there’s now a specific baseball-focused format for the game rather than a blanket format similar to Attax in other sports.

    I like what I am seeing from Topps Attax. From a guy who played MLB Showdown in 2001 and 2002 this has a similar feel and I am looking forward to it.

    Indeed, I miss MLB Showdown as well. This is a positive change because the previous games were too simple, although they were fun to play online. Maybe I should just finally buy Strat-O-Matic, lol.
