2018 Topps Five Star Baseball CardsBrand: Topps Five Star
Maintaining its two-card boxes, the Hobby-only 2018 Topps Five Star Baseball has no room for filler. Collectors can look forward to just on-card autographs or cut signatures in the premium MLB product.
The high-end baseball brand switched to the current setup in 2015 and has stuck with the two-card format since then.
2018 Topps Five Star Baseball Autographs
With up to 80 signers, the main portion of the 2018 Topps Five Star Baseball checklist is the Five Star Base Autographs line. These hard-signed cards also have Purple (#/50 or less), Blue (#/25 or less), Green (#/15), Gold (#/10), Orange (#/5), and Red (1/1) parallels.
New this year, the Five Star Dual Autographs set is limited to 10 copies or less. In addition, Five Star Signatures features a horizontal design and print runs of no more than 20. Using the extra space well, some players add an inscription.
Identifying not only star players, Career Year (#/25 or less) zeroes in on the best season for some of the top names. The Five Star edition is a one-of-one parallel.
Mixing in different ink colors, both the Golden Graphs and Silver Signatures inserts display autographs using art paint pens. Parallels include Purple (#/25 or less), Blue (#/20), Green (#/15), Gold (#/10), Orange (#/5), and Red (1/1).
