2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations Guide, Checklist

2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations Guide, Checklist

Overview

The 2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations incorporate a similar format to the Series 1 Variations. Available in two main groups, the short prints offer jersey differences to go along with the more limited SSP cards. See all the tips and tricks to spot the many variations using our detailed guide.

Shop for 2016 Topps Baseball variations on eBay.

Based on early information from popular breaker brentandbecca, 2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations contain both SP and SSP image variations. The more common short prints work with the Jackie Robinson Day #42 jersey images while the super short prints feature image swaps without a central theme.

In addition to the visibly different images on the fronts, collectors can also spot the 2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations using the card backs. Pay specific attention to the final two digits on the code in the bottom corner:

  • Base - end in #85
  • SP Photo Variations - end in #33
  • SSP Photo Variations - end in #35

Like Series 1, the Series 2 checklist does not feature any of the common variations from recent years, including Stat Backs or Sparkles.

As the full checklist was not provided by Topps, this guide is being manually compiled. It appears that it is now complete with 25 Jackie Robinson Day variations and 25 super short print (SSP) variations.

The master 2016 Topps Series 2 Baseball Variations checklist below offers a detailed look at all the options. See the full checklist for the entire product with our 2016 Topps Series 2 profile.

    I hate the fact that most of the variation are for 42. Jackie was not the first black player. The first black player was Moses Fleetwood Walker.

    I have no issue with what they have chosen to make the variations be… my only issue is that I wish all the variations would just be one theme. I know that we can just look at the numbers on the back to figure it out, but I think it would be cooler to collect the sets of variations each year if they were just one theme.

  3. Author

    Anyone know if the variations have the parallel borders as the base set does?

  4. Author

    I have run into a ton of other variations. The topps logo on the front of the card can be on the right corner or the left corner. This doesnt seem to happen for every card but I have 25 different players that I have a right and a left variation for
