The 25 cards don't stick to a set theme, but most feature either a standard image change or nickname swap in the form of a name variation or team variation. There is even one player that switches the text and image (Stanton), as well as one option where the change is on the back as a bio text variation (Buehler).

If you want some rarity or a greater challenge, the 2018 Donruss Optic Baseball variations feature the full Optichrome rainbow from the base set, including Holo, Bronze, Pink, Purple, Red/Yellow, Shock, White Sparkles, Aqua (#/299), Orange (#/199), Blue (#/149), Red (#/99), Carolina Blue (#/50), Black (#/25), Gold (#/10), Cracked Ice (#/7), Green (#/5), and Gold Vinyl (1/1) parallels.
