2000 Pacific Invincible is a 150-card set released in October, 2000. All cards are written in both English and Spanish.
The product was intended for release in August, but was pushed back so that Pacific could include their first game-used inserts. Unfortunately for Pacific, among those game-used cards is the now infamous Manny Ramirez "corked bat" card.

2016 Topps Series One is a 350-card set released February 3rd. For the first time, the set features a borderless design.
2015 National Treasures was released by Panini the week of January 8th, 2016, and was the final product of the 2015 baseball year. Each card is either autographed and/or features a piece of game-used memorabilia.
2015 Panini Elite Extra Edition is a 196-card prospect and draft pick laden set released December 31st, 2015. Every 20-pack Hobby box will contain four parallels, five inserts, a minimum of six autographs (although most boxes will yield more) and one USA Baseball jersey card.
2015 Panini USA Baseball is an 80-card boxed set released December 23rd, 2015. The set includes the 2015 USA 14U, 15U, 17U, 18U and Collegiate National Teams -- including 16 players who were drafted in the first round of the 2015 MLB Draft.
Each set also includes three Crown Royale inserts, two game-used memorabilia cards, and seven autographs.
2015 Topps Strata is scheduled for release the week of December 23rd, 2015. Similar to Tier One and Supreme, there is no "base set." All cards are autographs and/or game-used Relics, with each two-card box yielding one of each.
2015 Bowman's Best is a 100-card set supplemented with a 50-card Top Prospects insert, scheduled for release exclusively to Hobby outlets December 23rd. This marks the return of Bowman's Best after a eight year hiatus.
Much like how the original Bowman's Best was conceived as a hybrid of the Bowman and Finest brands, 2015 Bowman's Best can be seen as a hybrid of 2015 Bowman and 2015 Finest. Each Hobby box will contain two Finest-style six-pack mini-boxes, with each mini-box yielding two autographs.
2015 Topps Dynasty was released December 16th, 2015. As with the previous year's product, each card is a either a one-of-one cut signature, or an autographed patch card serial-numbered to ten copies or less.
A total of 1559 one-card Hobby boxes were produced.
2015 Topps Archives Signature Series was released during the second week of December 2015. Each box contains one encased buyback autographed Topps card.
2015 Bowman Draft is a 200-card set scheduled for release December 9th. For the second consecutive year Bowman Draft will not feature any current active Major League players. As there are not even a token number of actual Major League players in the base set (Bowman Draft is not licensed by the MLBPA), none of the cards fit the traditional definition of a "Rookie Card" and none bear the MLB-approved RC "icon."
For the first time since this product's inception as "Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects" in 2000, only players who were selected in the 2015 MLB Draft will be included -- in other words, all draft picks and no "prospects."
Each Hobby box will yield one autograph, with Jumbo boxes having three autos and Super Jumbos five. Exclusive parallels were inserted into packs distributed to the Asian-Pacific market.
31 of the 35 players selected in the first round of the 2015 MLB Draft have signed autographs for 2015 Bowman Draft including first overall pick Dansby Swanson. This marks the first time since 2004 that the number one overall pick in the draft has an autograph in that year's Bowman Draft/Draft Picks & Prospects.
2015 Panini Contenders is a 99-card set, released November 11th, 2015. As with all other Panini products, it is not licensed by Major League Baseball, and as such, none of the cards are considered "true" rookies. However, the set is licensed by the Collegiate Licensing Corporation (CLC) and USA Baseball and features players, primarily, in their college uniforms.
Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield six autographs with every third box yielding a seventh autograph. Every 12-box case will contain two autographs of Kyle Schwarber, Corey Seager and Yoan Moncada.
2015 Topps Chrome Update is a 50-card set released exclusively to Target stores starting the first week of November. Each $14.99 "Mega" box contains five packs of 2015 Topps Update and two packs of four 2015 Topps Chrome Update cards. Unlike last year, this set is skip-numbered using the same sequential numbers from the Topps Update set.
Interestingly, each card (base, parallel, insert, and game used) has a "Speckled" Refractor sheen.
2015 Topps Heritage '51 is a 104-card boxed set released October 28th. As the name implies, the set is based on the design of the 1951 Topps set, which was skipped over in favor of the more famous 1952 set when the Heritage brand was established in 2001. Not counting the "update" style Heritage High Numbers sets of 2012-14, this is the first Heritage set released in this form. Each boxed set will include the full 104-card base set, 21 parallels, and an autograph.
2015 Topps Update was released October 21st. At 400 cards, it will be the largest "Traded" set since 2002 Fleer Tradition Update. Each 36-pack Hobby box will continue to yield either an autograph or a Relic card while Hobby-exclusive Jumbo boxes will come with an autograph, a Relic, and a manufactured "Relic."
2015 Topps High Tek is a 112-card acetate set that was released September 14th. Just like the previous year's product, each eight-card box will contain one parallel and one autograph.
2015 Topps Heritage High Number Series was released September 25th, and consists of the final 225 cards in the 2015 Topps Heritage base set. For the first time since 2009, the Heritage High Number Series was released in pack form.
2015 Topps Five Star was released September 30th. The product was given an overhaul with each box reduced from six cards to only two -- although both cards will be autographed.
2015 Topps Supreme was released September 23, about a month earlier than last year's product. Just like last year, every card in the set will be autographed and each Hobby box will yield two autographs.
2015 Triple Threads is a 140-card released by Topps, exclusive to Hobby outlets, on September 16th. Once again, each seven card pack will yield: three base cards, two serial-numbered parallels, one Triple Relic and one Jumbo Relic, with one of the Relics being autographed.
2015 Topps Heritage Minor League is a 225-card set released September 18th. Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield two autographs and a Relic.
2015 Bowman Chrome is a 200-card set, supplemented by a 100-card Prospects insert set, that was released September 4th. Each 18-pack Hobby box will yield two autographs and each 12-pack Jumbo box will have five.
2015 Panini Immaculate is a 159-card set released exclusively to Hobby outlets the week of August 28th. Each six-card Hobby box will contain five autographed and/or game-used memorabilia cards.
2015 Topps Chrome is a 205-card set released exclusively to retail outlets the week of August 5, 2015.
