Complete 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball Variations Checklist and Gallery

Complete 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball Variations Checklist and Gallery

Overview

Topps Series 1 and variations seemingly go hand-in-hand and that is still the case in '17. However, scaling back from recent years, the 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball variation lineup only includes the limited SSP versions in the annual flagship set. While there is no specific theme to speak of for the image variations, the options mainly deal with what is happening in the dugout and other actions outside the field of play. Also, recently-retired slugger David Ortiz receives extra attention with multiple versions.

Continuing the standard procedure of prior years, the final 2017 Topps Series 1 checklist did not include the 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball variations. As a result, collectors have to be extra attentive to make sure they don't miss one. While the main photo change can be the most obvious way to identify them, collectors can also rely on the final four digits of the code from the back of the card. This information comes courtesy of well-known breaker brentandbecca.

  • Base Cards end in 1730
  • SSP Photo Variations end in 1786

Found across multiple formats, early details for the 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball variations indicate 1:136 jumbo pack odds and 1:678 hobby pack odds. Unlike the more recent years, such as the 2016 Topps Series 1 variations, collectors are not treated to two tiers of short prints. Instead of a standard SP version with easier odds, alongside a much tougher SSP set to chase, only the super short prints are found this year.

The full checklist is shown below and the corresponding gallery on the tab above makes it easy to spot the differences.
