2014 Topps Series 2 Baseball continues from where Series 1 left off. Filling in the checklist with more stars, rookies, as well as players in new uniforms, there's a lot of tradition behind the brand. With the promise of one autograph or relic card per box, it's also very much in the modern realm.

The 2014 Topps Series 2 base set adds another 330 cards. Numbering continues from where Series 1 ended. In addition to regular player cards, collectors can also find subsets for Future Stars, highlights and 2013 award winners.

The parallel rainbow is big. Red Hot Foil cards land 1:6 hobby packs and one per jumbo pack. Gold cards are numbered to 2014. Others include Green Camo (#/99), Black(#/63), Pink (#/50), Printing Plates, and Platinum (1/1). Clear parallels done on acetate stock are numbered to 10 and can only be found in hobby packs, not jumbo packs. Silk Collection (#/50) is a partial parallel highlighting 100 players.

2014 Topps Series 2 Baseball sticks with the theme of "The Future Is Now!" for many inserts. This means a strong focus on rookies, young players and spotlights on great early careers from the past. The Future Is Now inserts (25 cards, 1:4 packs) look at baseball's fresh faces. The set also has 30 Autographs (#/25), 30 Relics (#/99) and 30 Autographed Relics (#/10).

Future Stars That Never Were (30 cards, 1:18 packs) creates retro-themed cards for players who never appeared in a Future Stars subset. Although it's one of the most recognized names in the brand's history, it hasn't been used much in recent years. Gold parallels are numbered to 99. Fifteen autographed versions are numbered to 10. There are also 25 Relics numbered to 25 and ten Autographed Relics numbered to 5. All Future Stars That Never Were cards are exclusive to hobby and jumbo packs.

Saber Stars (25 cards, 1:8 packs) is an inserted set dedicated to the art of Sabermetrics stats. The checklist focuses on the top players as far as these deep numbers go. These also come with Autographs (ten cards, #/50), Relics (ten cards, #/99) and Autographed Relics (ten cards, #/25).

Trajectory Autographs (40 cards) track players' progress from their rookie year through to the present. There is also a Gold version that's limited to 10 numbered copies. Trajectory Relics follow a similar format, only with pieces of equipment instead of signatures. These also have a Gold parallel (#/10).

Jackie Robinson is the subject of a set of Framed Cards. These come in three versions: Black Frame, Silver Frame (#/99) and Gold Frame (#/25). Framed Topps Gold Label Cards use the 2000 Topps Gold Label design as its starting point. Numbered to 25, the set features active players and stars from the past. Framed cards combine to land one per hobby or jumbo case.

1989 Topps Mini Die-Cut cards bring back the Junk Wax design and give it a twist. Ten players have signed versions. Numbered to 10, these have on-card autographs. The set also has 15 relic cards, each numbered to 25.

The shadow box-styled Strata cards return as a rare hit. Strata Signature Relics (25 cards, #/25) have a memorabilia piece on the bottom and a signed piece of acetate over top. The end result is a 3-D layered look. The checklist includes current and retired players. Thirty one-of-one Strata Cut Signatures are also randomly inserted.

Own the Game Relics feature the letters from the backs of game-used jerseys. While each is a one-of-one, there are more than 500 different cards.

2014 Topps Series 2 Baseball cuts back on the number of manufactured relic sets. Class Rings is the lone one. These cards come with a manufactured ring embedded in the card and highlight the featured player's rookie year. Base versions of the 25-card set are done in silver. Parallels include Gold (#/99) and Gold Gems (#/25), which come with replica jewels. Ten players also have Gold Gems Autographs versions that are numbered to 10. Class Rings combine to fall one per hobby case or one per jumbo box.

The Power Players parallel code program continues with 55 more players including 2014 rookies.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
