Calling all player collectors, specifically those who chase Masahiro Tanaka, Jose Abreu, Billy Hamilton, Xander Bogaerts and Nick Castellanos. 2014 Topps Baseball retail factory sets come with a pack of five exclusive variations of the standout rookies.
Like last year, each of the basic retail factory sets has all five of the cards. So if you're looking for one in particular, you don't have to take any chances. Variations are included in addition to the 660-card base set. They don't replace the regular cards.
Each of the variations comes with a different photo from the regular base card. Although they don't follow a particular pattern, they are fairly distinct and relatively easy to spot.
2014 Topps Baseball Retail Factory Sets come in a specially marked blue box that mentions the variations. Hobby and All-Star-themed sets come with their own exclusives.
We've paired up all five of the 2014 Topps Baseball Retail Factory Set Rookie Variations below with their base counterparts. You can also get a brief description of what to look for for each card.
