Product Details

User Rating:

The second iteration of the premium MLB set, 2018 Topps Definitive Collection Baseball has not lost its refined look, nor its hefty price tag.

Like it promised in the 2017 debut, each 2018 box contains six on-card autographs or autograph relics, and two relics. On top of that, every card is numbered to 50 copies or less.

2018 Topps Definitive Baseball Autographs / Auto Relics

The hit-only 2018 Topps Definitive Baseball checklist provides several different lines, with most being signed. This includes Definitive Autograph Collection, Legendary Autograph Collection, which pays tribute to specific milestones, and Framed Autograph Collection. The Definitive Rookie Autograph set highlights key rookies and offers image variations, while Dual Autograph Collection pairs players with a connection. Each set also has some combination of low-numbered parallels via Green (#/25 or less), Purple (#/10 or less) and Red (1/1).

Tying in a memorabilia piece, Base Autograph Relic Collection displays a horizontal design with a large swatch for top veterans and rookies. There are also limited versions, like Green (#/25), Purple (#/10) and Red (1/1) parallels. The Red cards are actually further broken down into Patch, MLB Logo, Majestic Logo, Jersey Button and Laundry Tag. Tweaking the layout to allow a larger signing area, Definitive Autograph Relic, which covers the veteran and retired players, has Green (#/10), Purple (#/5) and Red (1/1) parallels.

That's not all, however, as 2018 Topps Definitive Collection Baseball features Framed Autograph Patch Collection and Dual Autograph Relic Collection, for notable player combos. Both work with Purple (#/10) and Red (1/1) parallels. Splitting up the patch and signature, Autograph Patch Book Collection is perhaps the most captivating, and easily the largest insert to be found. They also come as a one-of-one Team Logo Patch Red parallel.

2018 Topps Definitive Baseball Relics

Filling two spots in each box, 2018 Topps Definitive Collection Baseball closes with relics it specifically notes are "premium." Jumbo Relic Collection contains swatches taken from the special uniforms worn on the 4th of July, Father's Day, Mother's Day, and Players Weekend, among others. Parallels include Blue (#/35), Green (#/15), Purple (#/5) and Red (1/1). Game-used batting helmet pieces come in Definitive Helmet Collection. The more rare versions include Purple (#/10) and several Red parallels with tags or logos.

Both limited to just one copy per card, there are also Definitive Nameplate Collection, with jersey letters, and Definitive Patch Collection, which contains "unique jersey patches."

Featuring the only autographs that aren't hard-signed, the one-of-one Definitive Cut Signature set is reserved for the legends of the game.

Estimated Release Date: May 2018

  1. The pole man would have 4 Kids and used to collect baseball cards as a child can’t even buy all cards for my kiids because they so high(5)

  2. You have to be nuts to spend huge money on this junk. I watched a guy open four boxes last year, and he got three cards worth at least $60. Great value for the money, for sure….but you know what they say about a fool and his money…
