2017 Panini Elite Extra Edition was released December 6th, 2017. The set features players selected in the 2017 MLB Draft and other prominent prospects. New for 2017 are prospects from the Dominican League.

Each five-pack Hobby box will yield six autographs, two game-used cards, a Future Threads Silhouette Autograph, and either another autograph or game-used card.

2017 Panini Chronicles is a 150-card set released November 22nd. The new product is a new spin on the tradition post-season "update" set, with an original base set along with inserts based off other Panini brands -- including the first Panini Prizm cards since 2015. Each pack will contain either a serial-numbered card, an autograph, or a game-used card.

2017 Topps Dynasty was released November 22nd. As in past years, each box will contain one encapsulated autographed patch card serial-numbered to ten copies or fewer.

After a 12 year absence, Topps Gallery returns the week of November 17th. The 200-card base set will feature newly commissioned artwork on every card and will be exclusive to Walmart stores.

2017 Topps High Tek was released November 15th. As usual, all cards are printed on acetate with multiple background pattern parallels. As part of a new configuration for the brand, each 40-card box will contain two autographs.

2017 Topps Chrome Update was released, with little notice or fanfare, exclusively to Target stores the week of November 6th. As with previous iterations of this product, it is an abbreviated chromium-stock rendition of the Topps Update set, and is packaged in seven-pack "Mega Boxes." Unlike past Chrome Update Mega Boxes (which had a mix of Topps Update and Topps Chrome Update packs), the 2017 Mega Boxes have Chrome Update packs only.

2017 Topps Luminaries was released November 8th. Each box contains one card, an autograph serial-numbered to 15 copies or fewer.

We estimate that only 525 12-box cases will be produced.

2017 Topps Five Star was released November 1st. All cards are autographed, and each box will contain two.

2017 Bowman High Tek is a 56-card set scheduled for release October 25th. Like the Topps High Tek revival product of recent years, all cards are printed on acetate with multiple background variations. As the name suggests, the base set consists exclusively of prospects. Each ten-card box will yield four autographs and a parallel.

2017 National Treasures was released October 25th. All cards are autographs or game-used memorabilia cards. Each eight-card box will contain one "booklet."
