2017 Topps Mini Baseball Cards
Although the undersized cards have been treated to a decent run over the years, 2017 Topps Mini Baseball switches things up a bit with an online exclusive release.
Instead of a full set or a traditional box format, the 2017 Topps Mini Baseball checklist shrinks all 1,000 base cards from flagship Topps and randomly issues them in foil packs. This means all 350 cards from 2017 Series 1, 350 base cards from 2017 Series 2, and 300 base cards from 2017 Update Series. Perhaps most intriguing, all key rookie cards, including Aaron Judge and Cody Bellinger, are in play.
Priced at $24.99, each factory-sealed pack delivers 30 base mini cards, four base parallels, and one 1987 insert. Base parallels include Orange (#/25), Blue (#/10), Red (#/5), and Gold (1/1), while the 1987 inserts is found in base, Red (#/25) and Platinum (1/1) versions.
The above image provides a good comparison between the standard Bellinger rookie card and the mini counterpart exclusive to this set.
Sold for approximately one month through the Topps site, supplies are limited, so they could sell out before that point.
Sales Start Date: 11/08/2017; Sales End Date: 12/08/2017 (or as supplies last)

Poor print quality. Also, Topps’ website says each box has four numbered parallels, and then proceeds to list four different types of numbered parallels (/25, /10, /5, /1), which led me to believe you would receive one of each. In hindsight, it’s more obvious that there are more than just 1,000 boxes, but the website was deliberately opaque. Ultimately, it was really disappointing to receive three /25’s (all #14/25, showing incredibly poor collation) and a weak /5. Don’t buy secondhand.
