2018 Topps Now MLS Soccer Cards – UpdatedBrand: Topps Now
From the first games of the year to the MLS Cup, 2018 Topps Now MLS goes wire to wire for cards highlighting top moments during the Major League Soccer season.
Year three of the print-to-order release keeps to the 2017 format, but with a new card design. Although very similar to the 2018 Topps Now Baseball look, the main difference is the silhouette of the penalty area in the corner which also displays the date.
2018 Topps Now MLS is exclusive to the Topps online store, with each release selling for 24 hours at $9.99 per card. Bundles are often available with all the cards from a given day sold at a discounted rate. Following this period, the selling window ends, the final print run is revealed, and the cards are printed and shipped. Collectors can enjoy free shipping on their order as long as they select SmartPost as the method.
Similar to past years, the 2018 Topps Now MLS checklist tends to feature very limited options. The majority of the cards generally finish under 100 copies, with many between 40 and 80 copies. As such, collectors can end up with some rare collectibles.
Check back for regular updates on new releases and final print runs.
