While variations have lately stuck with more unique images in place of the base versions for the same player, the 2017 Topps Update Series Baseball variations continue the Legends cards from Series 2 that replace a modern player in the checklist with a retired great. Although the card itself is for a completely different player, the card number is shared.

2017 Topps Update Series Variations Short Print Details

Most of the 2017 Topps Update variations are much, much easier pulls this time around and are part of the main 100-card short prints (SP) group that has 1:4 hobby pack and blaster pack odds. It's the 2017 SSP rookie variations that are tougher, at around one per hobby case (1:256 packs) for each card in the 25-card set.

In addition, the 2017 Topps Update Series Baseball variations are not limited to only the Update checklist, as some cards are variations for Series 1 and Series 2 cards with numbering to match. Many of these also had variations in their original sets.

2017 Topps Update Series Baseball Variation Codes

Continuing a Topps trend, the 2017 Topps Update Series Variations can again be identified using the code on the back of the card under the stats. If you are uncertain about the images on the front, you can flip the card over and check the bolded CODE#CMP (in white) at the bottom.

We will update as more details emerge, but these are the codes to be aware of as you are sorting cards.

  • Base Code - ends in #5517
  • SP Variation Code - ends in #5557
  • SSP Variation Code - ends in #5904

User Comments

  1. US 18, in place of Mookie Betts is Ted Williams, who is fishing!!

  2. I also have Anthony Rizzo and Ryon Healy and Amir Garrett in ssp

  3. Also Judge Series 1 #287 SSP

  4. What packs are the variations available in? Are they only available in blaster ($20) boxes or are they available in all packs like they used to be?

  5. Arthur: Base SP is in all formats.

  6. Weird. I’m not seeing that. Can you email me with additional details? trey@cardboardconnection.com

  7. What are the odds for finding each type of variation in each format of packs?

  8. I’ve only seen blaster odds. Hobby odds will be added when confirmed.

  9. Has there been any news on the short print autographs?

  10. Doug: They exist, but are just very rare.

  11. Do the SP and SSP cards also have all of the parallel colors as well?

  12. Shawn: None that I have seen. Flagship doesn’t generally have parallels for variations.

  13. Thanks Trey. Thanks what I figured, but after seeing the parallels with the Topps Chrome variations this year I wasn’t sure.

  14. I have to comment on four cards.

    Card 1. US18 Ted Williams. I just looks weird to see him fishing on a baseball card.

    Card 2. US156 Nolan Ryan. It looks like his hat is a bad photoshop job. It looks like the hat is twice the size of his head.

    Card 3. US168 Mike Piazza. It looks like he was just superimposed onto the card.

    Card 4. US223 Sandy Kofax. I assume he is pointing to the scoreboard. I also assume the dodgers were the home team so they would be on the bottom. Was it a no hitter or a perfect game. I can not see the other team name good enough to see who they played.

  15. On the Koufax card, the Dodgers are playing the Giants. It was a no-hitter. Here’s the Getty Image – http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/dodger-pitcher-sandy-koufax-points-with-pride-to-the-score-news-photo/515287560

  16. I have 7 sp from one hobby box (with three of them legends). Is that the norm? if so, they just aren’t quite as short as they used to be…maybe we need a KSP designation: Kind of Short Print. So, is anyone else hitting them at this rate or did I just score a great box for my 1st of the product? I’m betting on the former…thanks. Tom

  17. Tom: The main variations in Update are very common at 1:4 packs. Only the SSP cards are rare this time.

  18. I have the honus Wagner variation is it a sp

  19. David: They are all short prints. SSP rookie cards are marked and those are versions that are more rare than the others.

  20. How come on the back of the Hank Aaron variation under the number US247 it says, “Series 2”? Shouldn’t it say “Update Series”?

  21. Tom: It appears many of them are like that. I imagine it’s because the Legend variations for some of the same players came in Series 2.

  22. I got a Hank Aaron variation, a nolan arenado variation, a vintage stock, and a postseason celebrations red #/250. All in two five buck packs. Is that common?

  23. What are the odds of finding sp variations in all packs?

  24. Arthur: As stated in the article above, it’s 1:4 packs for SP and 1:256 packs for SSP.

  25. I pulled a Freddie Freeman #244, hat off.

  26. The Eddie Murray variation, US42 and the Piazza variation, US168, both say “Update Series” under the number. So the Aaron would seem to be an anomaly.

  27. Mancini also has a horizontal SSP, ends with the 5904 numbering. It has him and Chris Davis on the front.

  28. It’s on there near the bottom. It has Series 2 card numbering (536) instead of #US, so those are listed in a second group.

  29. #539-Amir Garrett (RC)……….I just pulled it from a pack if u need pics!!
