2014 Topps Tribute Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Tribute
2014 Topps Tribute Baseball sticks with the brand's trademark of mixing low-numbered hits, modern technology and a decidedly classic vibe -- both with design elements and player selection. The high-end release delivers an autograph or memorabilia card in every pack that is numbered to 99 or less.
Overall, the design shares a lot of similarities to past years, most notably with the Refractor-like card stock that has long been a brand trademark. However, there's also an Art Deco spin to it, offering something new.
Autographs play a huge role in 2014 Topps Tribute Baseball with every six-pack box promising four of them. Base Autographs are all signed on-card. Besides the regular versions that are numbered to 99 or less, there are seven parallels: Blue (#/50), Sepia (#/35), Green (#/25), Gold (#/15), Red (#/5), Printing Plates, Purple (1/1) and Onyx (1/1). Following a similar pattern, both in numbering and parallels, are a pair of new inserts: Tribute Traditions and Tribute to the Pastime. These are also hard-signed. Timeless Tribute Autographs (#/24) feature two autographs, pairing a veteran with a retired player who shared similar playing traits. Tribute to the Stars (#/24) and Eccentric Eye Black (#/5) return.
Relic themes have been largely overhauled in 2014 Topps Tribute Baseball. The main sets, Tribute to the Throne, Forever Young and Tribute Titans, all push the Art Deco feel. Each set is numbered to 99 with six parallels: Blue (#/50), Sepia (#/35), Green (#/25), Gold (#/15), Red (#/10) and Purple (1/1). Tribute Milestone Relics have pieces of baseballs used during an important game from the 2013 season. Tribute Milestones also has a one-of-one autographed parallel.
Rare memorabilia cards include Prime Patches (#/24), Batting Gloves (#/2), Bat Knobs (1/1) and Bat Plates (1/1). 2014 Topps Tribute Baseball also has one-of-one relic cards featuring belt buckles from a pair of game-used pants.
The 2014 Topps Tribute Baseball base set once again mixes current players with retired greats. Parallels include Blue (#/99), Green (#/50), Gold (#/25), Red (#/5), Printing Plates and Purple (1/1).
