Merging the entertainment and sporting worlds, 2016 Topps MLB Wacky Packages offers a humorous take on professional baseball. Available in two formats, the basic Hobby boxes keep things simple while the Hobby Collector Box promises one premium hit.

Covering all 30 MLB teams, top MiLB teams, traditional baseball foods and notable events, the 90-card base set parodies a wide array of the MLB. While both hobby boxes include Grass-Colored (1 per pack) and Gold (#/25) parallels, the Collector Box takes things up a notch with multiple exclusive parallels. This includes Sepia (1 per pack), Black Ludlow Back (1 per box), Red Ludlow Back (#/10), Lumber (#/5) and Printing Plates (1/1). Collector Boxes are also the only place to find Artist Autograph base cards (#/5).

While the base stickers are obviously meant to be fun, the autographs and relics are all the real deal. Mascot Autographs feature the 2016 Topps Baseball design and sticker autographs for the furry creatures. Active Stars Autographs showcase the same basic card format but include signatures from current players.

A pair of relics can also be found in 2016 Topps MLB Wacky Packages. Stadium Seats Relics include a piece of game-used seat from an MLB ballpark while Ticket Relics contain a 1.5" x 1.75" piece of an authentic ticket from a noteworthy game.

All hits are available in Red (1/1) parallels that are exclusive to Hobby Collector boxes. Adding to the premium options, Sketch cards are also found.

Found separately, promo cards were included in 2016 Topps Series 1 and the Spring Fever promotional packs. Topps also released an exclusive line of 2016 MLB Wacky Packages wall art through their online store.

I’m not seeing any prices listed anywhere for leather cards. Anyone know how much these are going for?


What about the odds of a wood sticker? I picked up some packs and pulled a Pirates wood sticker.
eBay auctions are saying only 5 of each made? Is that accurate?

Yes the distinction between hobby and retail become blurred when Topps introduced Collector’s boxes for Wacky Packages ANS 11 in 2013. It’s the Collector’s boxes that now guarantee inserts not hobby boxes.


Confused as well…..opened Hobby “Case”

84 x 8 and got a lousy Gold card!

VERY disappointed!

– Dave


I am kind of confused about this product. I bought a “Hobby” box on ebay and was surprised to find it mostly felt like a retail box. One lousy gold insert. After looking through the other hobby box listings on ebay, do they not label their hobby boxes as “Hobby”? They look just like regular boxes on the shelf at target. I am pretty disappointed with what I got. Usually hobby boxes guarantee a relic or auto or something decent. Can anyone shed some light on this?


I’ve gotten some with a baseball seamed background. Guessing it’s a parallel as well…
