2018 Topps Big League Baseball Variations Guide

2018 Topps Big League Baseball Variations Guide

Given that it is a set that caters to a younger demographic, it is not a shock that Topps slipped in some 2018 Topps Big League Baseball variation surprises. Keep your eyes peeled for some very rare error variations and the plentiful (and fun) MLB Players Weekend variations.

2018 Topps Big League Error Variations

As is normally the case, not all the cards were noted on the 2018 Topps Big League checklist. With odds of 1:507 packs, the 2018 Topps Big League Baseball Error Variations won't pop up often, but they can be difficult to spot as some are pretty subtle. However, some jump out at you immediately.

The error aspect deliberately changes things from the base card and the difference is pretty obvious when you compare them side-by-side with the base as we have done in the gallery below.

2018 Topps Big League Players Weekend Variations

On the other hand, very common at 1:3 packs, the Players Weekend Variation cards are much more clear thanks to the nicknames and a different front and back design. These were also included on the final 2018 Topps Big League checklist. In fact, they appear to be more of a standalone insert rather than a true variation and the only thing that ties them into the base set is the card number. Collectors should have no trouble spotting these.
