Completed Team Set 2011 Topps Throwback Commemorative Patch

The Angels had 1 card in Series 1 and 3 in Series 2.

2011 Topps Series 1 Torii Hunter TLMP-TH

2011 Topps Series 2 Jered Weaver TLMP-JW

2011 Topps Series 2 Nolan Ryan TLMP-NR

2011 Topps Series 2 Reggie Jackson TLMP-RJ

The Angels have no patches in the Topps Update Series, which would have been the perfect opportunity for Topps to at least have an Angels patch from the 60's, the first decade of the Angels existance.

I don't understand the reasoning behind not matching up a player to the patch they would have worn. Nolan should have Hunters patch, Reggie should have Weavers patch. Or if it's a throwback patch then show the player in the throwback uniform that matches the patch. That would have worked great for Weaver and Hunter.

I dig these patch cards, but I think Topps missed the boat on this one.


  1. Nice set- and I fully agree with you on the choice of patches, but they are nice. I only have the Reggie card, need to get the other three.

  2. Any completed team set is a victory! Congrats.
