[[1998 Topps Stars]] is a 150-card set that was distributed exclusively to Topps' Home Team Advantage stores. Every base set card is serial-numbered to 9799 copies and each pack contains four other serial-numbered parallel cards.  
+
[[1993 Cardtoons]] is a 95-card parody set intended for release in 1993, but not issued until over a year later. This completely unlicensed set uses cartoon caricatures on its fronts to parody then-active MLB players. The backs carry comical "career highlights" within silver-colored panels on the left sides and team logo caricatures on the right sides.
  
 +
This product was the subject of a seven-year long court battle between the producers and the MLB Players Association -- a case eventually won by Cardtoons.

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 Bowman Platinum]] is a 100-card set supplemented by a 100-card Top Prospects insert set, released in late June. For the third consecutive year, Bowman Platinum will be distributed exclusively to Walmart stores.  
 
 
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 Topps Museum Collection]] is a 100-card set released June 29th. Each pack will contain either an autograph or a relic. Each four-pack box will yield the following:
 
 
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.

[[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 yearsDue 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.
+
Originally, Inception was scheduled for a late March release; but Topps pushed it back three monthsCuriously, Shohei Ohtani does NOT have a Rookie Card in the product -- although he does have a few autographs.
 
 
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.

[[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.

Set of the Month

1993 Cardtoons is a 95-card parody set intended for release in 1993, but not issued until over a year later. This completely unlicensed set uses cartoon caricatures on its fronts to parody then-active MLB players. The backs carry comical "career highlights" within silver-colored panels on the left sides and team logo caricatures on the right sides.

This product was the subject of a seven-year long court battle between the producers and the MLB Players Association -- a case eventually won by Cardtoons.

Just Released

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.

2018 Topps Fire is a 200-card set released exclusively to Target outlets the week of August 27th.

2018 Panini Chronicles is a 60-card set released August 24th. As with the previous year's product, Chronicles features an original base set along with inserts based off other Panini brands -- including the first Score baseball cards in 20 years. Each six-pack Hobby box will contain three autographs and a game-used memorabilia card.

2018 Topps Archives was released exclusively to retail outlets the week of August 13th. The Hobby edition -- which was scheduled for released around the same time -- has been delayed until September.

The base set is 320 cards featuring designs from the 1959, 1977, and 1981 Topps sets.

2018 Panini Immaculate was released August 1st. Each six-card box will yield five autographs and/or game-used cards. All cards are serial-numbered to 99 copies or fewer.

2018 Topps Chrome was released August 1st. Each Hobby box will yield two autographs while each Jumbo box will have five autos.

2018 Donruss Optic was released July 18th. As usual, Optic is a 175-card chromium-stock take on the 2018 Donruss set. Each 20-pack Hobby box will yield 15 inserts/Prizm parallels, 15 Rated Rookie base cards, and two autographs.

Randomly seeded "Hot Boxes" will yield five autographs, or one serial-numbered Prizm per pack.

2018 Topps Allen & Ginter is a 350-card set, released the week of July 18th. As usual, each 24-pack Hobby box will include three of the following: Autographs, Relics, Rip Cards, or A&G Originals.

2018 Topps Big League is a 400-card set scheduled for release July 11th. It is a new product (replacing Topps BUNT), it is targeted toward young collectors.

2018 Topps Definitive Collection was released July 6th. An all "hit" product, each eight-card box will yield six on-card autographs and two Relics.

2018 Bowman Platinum is a 100-card set supplemented by a 100-card Top Prospects insert set, released in late June. For the third consecutive year, Bowman Platinum will be distributed exclusively to Walmart stores.

2018 Topps Museum Collection is a 100-card set released June 29th. Each pack will contain either an autograph or a relic. Each four-pack box will yield the following:

  • A Canvas Collection insert
  • A base set parallel

  • A Quad Relic
  • An Autograph
  • An Autographed Relic

2018 Stadium Club is a 300-card set released June 27th. Each 16-pack Hobby box will yield a pair of autographs.

2018 Topps Inception is a 100-card set released exclusively to Hobby outlets on June 27th. Each seven-card box will contain four base cards, two parallels, and an autograph.

Originally, Inception was scheduled for a late March release; but Topps pushed it back three months. Curiously, Shohei Ohtani does NOT have a Rookie Card in the product -- although he does have a few autographs.

2018 Topps Series Two was released June 13th.

2018 Finest is a 125-card set released by Topps on June 6th. Each box will yield two autographs.
