[[2017 Topps Archives]] is a 300-card set, released May 31st. As has been this brand's trademark, one third of the base set is done in the style of the [[1960 Topps]] set (which was the basis of [[2009 Topps Heritage]]), one third as [[1982 Topps]] (which was used as one of the designs in [[2013 Topps Archives]]), and the final third [[1992 Topps]]. 
+
[[2018 National Treasures]] was released by Panini September 26th. As usual, every card is autographed and/or a memorabilia card serial-numbered to 99 copies or fewer. Each eight-card box will contain one booklet card.  
 
 
Topps' initial solicitation for 2017 Archives promised "wide-ranging improvements," and one such improvement (and a major one, if that) was the subtraction of "high-number" short-prints to the base set.  In the previous two years, Archives was solicited as a 300 card base set without short-prints, only for Topps to deliver a final product with SPed base cards (30 in 2015 and ten in 2016). Another "addition-by-subtraction" improvement was the elimination of a celebrity/movie tie-in; replaced by a 23-card reprint insert of all of Derek Jeter's ''Topps Baseball'' base cards.
 
 
Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield two autographs and two Derek Jeter Retrospective inserts.

[[2017 Topps Inception]] is a 139-card set released May 19th, 2017. The product has been reconfigured from the previous year's product, yet still maintains the heavily Photoshop filtered look and feel. As the name suggests, the product has been re-branded from Bowman to Topps, and with that rebranding is a focus away from rookies and prospects and towards current Major League players.
+
[[2018 Bowman Chrome]] will be released September 26th with a 100-card base set supplemented by a 100-card Prospects set. Each 12-pack Hobby box will yield a pair of autographs.
 
 
A conventional base set has been added, and includes a 39-card Rookie Autographs subset. In addition, the number of autographs per box has been reduced from five to only one.

</div>
<div class="row">
 
[[2017 Bowman]] is a 100-card set, supplemented by a 150-card Prospects "insert" set, released April 26th. Each Hobby box will come with one autograph, while hobby-exclusive Jumbo boxes will yield three.
 
  
It should be noted that while Topps is billing 2017 Bowman as the "70th Anniversary," it is actually the 69th as the first Bowman set was released in 1948.

+
[[2018 Bowman High Tek]] is a 56-card set released September 12th.  All cards are printed on acetate with multiple background variationsUnlike the [[2017 Bowman High Tek|the previous year's product,]] a small selection of "true" rookie cards are included -- however, curiously, some players eligible to be RCs (e.g. Ronald Acuna, Jr. and Gleyber Torres) are still Prospects.  Each ten-card box will yield four autographs and a parallel.
 
 
 
</div>
 
</div>
<div class="row">
 
 
[[2017 Honus Bonus Baseball]] is a 500-card trading card game.  The set is being produced and distributed by Rittenhouse Archives, a noted producer of non-sports cards.  This is Rittenhouse's first baseball set, but not their first sports card product as they have had the WNBA license for a few years.  Due to their exclusive license with Topps, Honus Bonus is NOT licensed by MLB Properties and does not have logos.  The product is licensed by the MLBPA.
 
 
Each card will have a unique code (concealed by a silver "scratcher" bar) that, when entered onto the Honus Bonus website, can be used as part of an on-line fantasy baseball game.
 
  
</div>
+
<div class="row">[[2018 Topps Luminaries]] was released September 7th. Each box contains one card, an autograph serial-numbered to 15 copies or fewer.
<div class="row">
 
  
[[2017 Topps Gypsy Queen]] is a 320-card set.  In response to lagging sales and collector interest, Topps has reconfigured the Gypsy Queen brand at a lower price point.  Gone are the one-per-pack mini parallels, as well as the two-per-Hobby box Relics -- although each 24-pack Hobby box will continue to yield two autographs.  The ten-card "mini-box," which had been a Gypsy Queen staple, is also replaced by an oversized GQ Reflections box topper.
+
We estimate that only 625 12-box cases will be produced -- an increase of 100 cases from the previous year's product.

2018 Panini Elite Extra Edition was released December 12th. As usual, the product focuses on recent draft picks and prospects, and can be seen as Panini's answer to Bowman Draft.

Each base card is serial-numbered to 999 copies. Each five-pack Hobby box will yield two serial-numbered parallels, two game-used memorabilia cards, and eight autographs.

2018 Topps Dynasty was released December 7th. As usual, each box will contain an encased autographed patch card serial-numbered to ten or fewer.

2018 Triple Threads is a 100-card set released November 7th -- about a month-and-a-half later than usual. Each seven-card Hobby pack will contain three base cards, two parallels, one triple Relic card serial-numbered to 36 copies or fewer, and an autograph or autographed relic serial-numbered to 99 copies or fewer.

2018 Panini Flawless is an 85-card set released October 31st. Each ten-card box will yield one jewel-encrusted base card or parallel, two game-used cards, and seven autographs.

2018 Topps High Tek was released on October 31, 2018. As usual, all cards are printed on acetate with multiple background pattern parallels. Each 40-card box will contain two autographs and four numbered base/insert cards.

2018 Topps Update was released October 22nd.

2018 Topps Five Star was released October 17th. All cards are autographed, and each box will contain two.

2018 Topps Gold Label is a 300-card set released October 12th. As with the Gold Label sets of the late-90s, the set features 100 different players on three different "Class" cards: 1, 2, and 3. Unfortunately, the holo-foil plastic cardstock the brand was known for in the 90s was not used -- regular paper stock was used instead.

Each box will yield one Framed Autograph.

New for 2018 are Relics and Framed Autographed Relics.

2018 Panini Contenders Draft Picks is a 50-card set focusing on prospects and draft picks, released October 5th. Most players are depicted in their college uniforms, and is licensed by The Collegiate Licensing Company.

The product does NOT have any active Major League players and as such, is not licensed by the MLB Players Association (even though Panini does have an MLBPA license).

Each pack contains an autograph.

2018 National Treasures was released by Panini September 26th. As usual, every card is autographed and/or a memorabilia card serial-numbered to 99 copies or fewer. Each eight-card box will contain one booklet card.

2018 Topps Heritage Minor League is a 220-card set released September 26th -- a month earlier than last year. Each 24-pack Hobby box will yield one relic and one autograph.

2018 Bowman Chrome will be released September 26th with a 100-card base set supplemented by a 100-card Prospects set. Each 12-pack Hobby box will yield a pair of autographs.

For the second consecutive year, HTA Choice boxes are available which contain three autographs.

2018 Bowman High Tek is a 56-card set released September 12th. All cards are printed on acetate with multiple background variations. Unlike the the previous year's product, a small selection of "true" rookie cards are included -- however, curiously, some players eligible to be RCs (e.g. Ronald Acuna, Jr. and Gleyber Torres) are still Prospects. Each ten-card box will yield four autographs and a parallel.

2018 Topps Luminaries was released September 7th. Each box contains one card, an autograph serial-numbered to 15 copies or fewer.

We estimate that only 625 12-box cases will be produced -- an increase of 100 cases from the previous year's product.

2018 Topps Diamond Icons was released August 29th. Each eight-card box will contain: one Relic, seven autographs, and a pair of autographed Relics. Every other box will yield a cut signature. All cards are serial-numbered to 25 copies or fewer.
