The first year where Topps printed cards of the year's All Star Game during that calendar year was 2005, in Topps Updates and Highlights. Unfortunately, they only did cards of the starting lineups, and neglected to print any of the reserve members and bench players. Topps would rectify this starting in 2006, and would begin to be extensive in their ASG coverage as the years went on.
But we're left with 2005, a fragmented portrait of an ASG that once was. So, as the first of this project since the 2020 Final Edition set, I figured I'd rectify the missing pieces, and present the 2005 All Stars that never made it to Topps Update.
