The checklist of 2012 Topps Pro Debut Baseball variation short prints has a total of 50 players, many of whom are the game's top prospects. Like a lot of other variation lists, there isn't a pattern in how they're arranged on the checklist. There also isn't a theme behind the variation photos. Some players are batting while others are in the field.
Individual 2012 Topps Pro Debut Baseball variations are proving tough to find. Although Topps hasn't announced insertion rates, not a lot are popping up. First, Pro Debut isn't as widely collected as other lines. Also, the huge checklist makes singles difficult to track down.
After a week of being on the market, no more than a couple of each player were listed online. Several weren't at all. eBay prices have reached as high as $49.99 for a Mason Williams and a Manny Banuelos, however most 2012 Topps Pro Debut variation short prints seem to be settling in the $20-30 range for the time being.
