2014 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variation Short Prints Guide

Checklist

The 2014 Topps Series 2 Baseball variation short prints fall under a few different themes. Some are easy to spot. Others, you need to look at the stats on the back. And then there are the Sparkles.

No matter how you look at it, there are a lot of different variations.

Shop for 2014 Topps Series 2 Variations on eBay.

Future Stars

A couple of the themes carry over from the Series 1 variations, like Future Stars. This time there are more than the first time around. There looks to be 24 Future Stars and all but one has the player in a Futures Game uniform.

The lone exception is Masahiro Tanaka. His photo variation shows him at a podium during a press conference.

Future Stars look to be the easiest 2014 Topps Series 2 Baseball variations, falling about one per box.

Sabermetic Stat Backs

New for 2014 Topps Series 2 are variations that offer a completely different outlook on stats. Sabermetric Stats variations switch out the traditional stats on the back for a more modern outlook. The pictures are the same on the front so you have to flip them over.

These variations can also be spotted another way. Unlike all the other Series 2 variations, they have a different code in the fine print on the back. Sabermetric variants end in 75. Series 2 base cards and other variations all end in 34.

2014 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations Sabermetric Back Comparison

Sabermetric variations are the second most common, showing up about half as often as the one-per-box Future Stars.

Sparkles

Sparkles return once again. These cards have a small sparkly glint added to the card. It can be tough to spot, especially when the white sparkle is put against something else that's white like a jersey.

Sparkles look to be a case hit.

Snoopy

The final 2014 Topps Series 2 variation involves one of the most beloved cartoon characters of all time -- Snoopy. He can be seen smiling in the dugout of a Series 1 Joe Mauer card. The back also has a Peanuts Sports logo. It looks as though Mauer is the only Snoopy variation.

It is worth noting that many of the Series 2 variations add new versions of 2014 Topps Series 1 cards. This should help identifying them in packs as anything numbered below 332 should be a variation of some kind.

Also, Matt Harvey and Pedro Alvarez have had their numbers switched around for their Series 2 variations. Harvey's Series 1 base card is #33 and Alvarez is #192. Variations here have them switched with Alvarez as #33 and Harvey as #192.

User Comments

  1. The Brian Bogusevic card listed is not a sparkle variation. It is just a reflection on the helmet from the sun. I have 3 of those cards and they are all the same.

  2. Sean » Thanks for the heads up. Corrected it.

  3. I pulled a Shelby Miller Future Star variant today. I can send a pic in of that if you’d like to add it to your list.

  4. You have Mauer listed as 124, he’s 125 in the set.

  5. Lauren » Thanks! We got one and just added it in an update.

  6. Hey Ryan….Bogaerts Future Star is #133, listed as #135….thanks for the list. makes it so much easier

  7. So are the Harvey and Alvarez short prints out of series 2 error cards, as they seem to be switched numbers from their series 1 counterparts?

  8. Ben » One could look at it that way. Or you could look at the variations as a kind of insert. Not sure why the numbers were switched.

  9. my OCD is gunna crank up about ten notches when I try to figure out where in my set im gunna put the Harvey/Alvarez cards

  10. Anybody else pulled cards without the foil on the name? Got the same thing on 2014 Bowman. Is this a legit variation or just a crap print job?

  11. I am wondering if there is any significance in the series one cards that are included in series two packs?

  12. No added significance. Series 1 had Series 2 players, Series 2 had some Series 1. Not sure why that decision was made.
