In honor of BBM actually having a timely update to their website, I thought I'd do a quick post on newly listed set - the annual high end set called Genesis. The base set is 120 cards - 108 player cards (9 per team) and 12 team checklists. The player cards all have some myriad of possible parallels that are not detailed on BBM's website. But honestly, no one cares about the base set for Genesis. There are three 12 card insert sets - ELITE OF NINE, SPLENDID BLUE and GREAT WAVE - I think each card in the inserts is serially numbered to 50. Then there's all the "special" cards - autographed cards, autographed baseball cards, patch cards, super patch cards, bat end cards and various permutations of these. The new thing appears to be some sort of "booklet" card - I'm guessing they're a little better quality than the kind that Topps did as inserts in 1970. Interestingly there's no Cross Plasma cards in this set - this will be the first time that 1st and 2nd Version had a cross set subset without the high end set having it as well. BBM says that the set will be out in mid-September - Jambalaya has a release date of September 18.
