2013 Topps Update Series Retail All-Star MVP and Rookie Card Patches

2013 Topps Update Series Retail All-Star MVP and Rookie Card Patches

Retail blaster box exclusives return in 2013 Topps Update Series Baseball. These offer collectors new commemorative patch cards of retired stars as well as key Topps Traded and Update Series cards from the past 30-plus years. The patch cards land one per blaster box, similar to what Topps has been doing with its flagship baseball releases for several years.

The patches fall under two different banners, both of which have 15 cards. 2013 Topps Update Series All-Star MVP Patches focus on key performers from the Midsummer Classic over the last 50 years. The checklist is primarily Hall of Famers and future Cooperstown inductees. Highlights include Willie Mays, Derek Jeter, Ken Griffey Jr, and Cal Ripken. The patches recreate the logo from that year' game.

A similar Rookie Card Patches set was part of 2013 Topps Series 1 Baseball. Series 2 included more rookies as well as veteran cards from all-time greats. For Update Series, the focus switches back to only rookie cards but only from the Topps Traded and Update lines. Without as much history, most of the players are still playing. These include Clayton Kershaw, Yasiel Puig and Miguel Cabrera.

The 2013 Topps Update Series manufactured patch cards come in retail-exclusive blaster boxes. These also come with ten packs of cards. All-Star MVP and Rookie Card patch cards are randomly distributed. There's no way of telling which type of patch card comes in a box.

You can see both sets below. If you're looking for certain cards, click in the player's name or image to browse cards on eBay.

  1. getting these manufactured patches in packs is worse than getting a pack full of commons. the fact that these exist is the reason why i only buy singles

  2. mikeroyne » These particular cards aren’t in regular packs. They’re inserted in clearly marked blaster boxes in a pack outside of the regular packs.

  3. I HATE that Topps blaster boxes no longer yield any chances of getting an auto or relic, even if it is a long shot. The only chance of really getting anything retail from Topps s1 s2 or update is from the pack searched boxes in the isles. I like the patches, but would still like to see Topps still have odds of getting relics or autos in blaster boxes.
