106 cards per box ($199.99 + shipping). Exclusive to topps.com

All 700 cards from the 2018 Topps Baseball base set, as well as the two Ronald Acuna, Jr. and Gleyber Torres gimmicked SPs from Series Two, are included in the set. The two gimmicks are produced in the same quantities as any other base card.

All 702 base cards are available in the following parallels.

  • Red Sapphire (serial-numbered to ten)
  • SuperFractor (one-of-one)

NOTE: Unlike in previous years, all 702 cards are available in a one-of-one SuperFractor parallel. This includes those cards that already had a SuperFractor in 2018 Topps Chrome. Unfortunately, since the Sapphire Chrome SuperFractors are not uniquely marked, the only way to differentiate between the two SuperFractors is the card number.


Rookie Autographs
