The checklist boasts former World Series and league MVPs (Josh Hamilton, Josh Beckett, Dustin Pedroia, Albert Pujols), Cy Young winners (Felix Hernandez, Chris Carpenter), Rookies of the Year (Ichiro, Ryan Howard) and a host of minor league award-winners such as Trevor Bauer, Tyler Collins and Dylan Bundy, to name three.

You can get your first expanded look at the insert in the following preview gallery that includes preliminary mockups of just some of the cards in the set. Stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional updates on 2011 Playoff Contenders Baseball.

    Very cool. I’m happy to see some great MLB talent in Contenders.

    I’m confused about the team designations on these. If it is supposed to be the team the player was on when they won the award, Cliff Lee won the 2008 Cy Young Award with Cleveland but the card says Philadelphia. If it is supposed to be the player’s current team, both Pujols cards have him on St. Louis and he is now with Los Angeles of Anaheim. Please explain.

      Fair question, Ian. I’ll check with product development.

      One thing to note, though, is that these are not final just yet, so those appropriate edits could be forthcoming.

    When will you have a check list for the Playoff Contenders set? Also what will the per pack cost be for it and the case breakdown?
