Variations

For the first time in the history of this brand, Topps included a series of unannounced gimmick cards. Three of the cards feature members of the World Champion Giants during their victory parade. The eight have players who changed teams in the off-season being introduced to the local media.

Gimmicks of Bryce Harper and Yoenis Cespedes were made, apparently, for the hell of it.

Play Hard

For reasons that have not been explained by Topps, it appears that the cards of Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera were pulled from production. However, cards of both players (with quarter-sized holes punched through them) have emerged on the secondary market.
