2016 Topps Tribute Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Tribute
2016 Topps Tribute Baseball returns for another year with a new look and several updates. The hobby-only release includes three on-card autographs and three relic cards per box.
The 2016 Topps Tribute Baseball base set consists of veterans, retired stars and rookies using Chromax technology. Parallels for the veteran and retired cards average one per box and include Green (#'d), Purple (#'d), Red (#/5), Black (1/1), Tribute SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1). A new addition is the-short printed 2016 Rookies. Featuring the top ten players eligible for rookie card status, the limited rookie cards average two per case. Parallels extend to the rookie as well, with Purple (#'d), Red (#/5), Black (1/1), Tribute SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1).
Featuring only on-card autographs, the high-end release offers a good variety of signed cards. Tribute Autographs are all numbered and utilize a horizontal design. Parallels include Blue (#'d), Green (#'d), Purple (#'d), Orange (#/25), Red (#/5), Black (1/1), Tribute SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1). Ageless Accolades (#'d) honor the past with a die-cut plastic design and offer Red (#/5) and Black (1/1) parallels.
Foundations of Greatness and Rightful Recognition Autographs work together in a then-and-now capacity. The autographs are also found in Purple (#'d), Orange (#/25), Red (#/5), Black (1/1), Tribute SuperFractor (1/1) and Printing Plates (1/1) parallels.
The primary multi-player option in 2016 Topps Tribute Baseball, Tandems Book Cards are numbered to 25 and celebrate players that share similarities along with on-card autographs. Triple Crown Memories (#'d) honor the 50th anniversary of the Triple Crown awards for both Sandy Koufax and Frank Robinson with signed cards for each. Both the Tandem books and Triple Crown Memories also include Red (#/5) and Black (1/1) parallels.
Another key focus of 2016 Topps Tribute Baseball, multiple relic cards round out the release. Tribute Relics (#'d) keeps things simple with standard-sized relics.
