Tying in many of the key '17 Topps Baseball releases, 2017 Topps Rediscover Ultimate Card Giveaway centers around a huge assortment of stamped buybacks inserted in multiple 2017 products. Featuring original cards from throughout the card maker's history, the program offers over two million previously-released cards.
Although buybacks are not new in the hobby, or with Topps for that matter, 2017 Topps Rediscover Ultimate Card Giveaway updates the previous model by marking most of the buybacks with a Rediscover Topps foil logo. The overall checklist is dotted with offerings from the 1950s all the way up to 2016. There is also tiered rarity which means several different levels of foil stamping so collectors have an idea about which buybacks are less common. And, in response to hobby feedback, the more valuable buybacks will not include any stamping.
2017 Topps Rediscover Topps Baseball Buybacks Rarity List
- Bronze (most common)
- Red (most rare)
Starting with 2017 Topps Series 1 Baseball, the specific foil rarity begins with Bronze as the most common. After that, in order of increasing rarity, Silver, Gold, Blue, and Red (the rarest) close out the options. While issued as redemptions because of sizing issues, the 1950s-era cards will not be stamped.
Averaging approximately 1:6 packs across the entire run, the 2017 Topps Rediscover Ultimate Card Giveaway buybacks are included in many of the major 2017 sets. It is important to note that these are incremental inserts and will not take the place of any other cards.
2017 Rediscover Topps Baseball Ultimate Card Giveaway Code Cards
In addition to the actual buybacks, 2017 Topps Rediscover Ultimate Card Giveaway incorporates a promotional aspect with code cards. Also falling at around 1:6 packs, these are eligible for prizes through the Topps site. Beyond this are limited redemptions for Topps Now cards and exclusive Topps Bunt issues. Much more limited are the Topps Now Golden Ticket redemptions.
