Product Details

User Rating:

Wedged in the middle of the annual flagship MLB trilogy, 2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball adds more rookies and stars to the base set, continues several insert lines, and provides a few new elements.

Building on the Series 1 set, 2018 Topps Series 2 collectors can pick between the standard Hobby box with one autograph or relic, or the Jumbo box that promises one autograph and two relics.

In addition, 2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball is part of the Silver Packs promo featuring chromium versions of the 1983 design. Each Hobby box purchase earns one pack, while Jumbo results in two. The promotional set includes limited parallels and autographs, as well.

2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball Base / Parallels

While the 2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball checklist rolls in 350 new cards, including key veteran subjects and first-year players, the parallels keep to the status quo.

  • Rainbow Foil - 1:10 packs
  • Gold - #/2,018
  • Vintage Stock - #/99
  • Independence Day - #/76
  • Black - #/67 (Hobby/Jumbo)
  • Mother's Day Pink - #/50

Despite not being mentioned with the initial information, base variations are likely to return.

2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball Inserts

Dropping several per box, 2018 Topps Series 2 extends S1 insert lines like the 100-card Topps Salute. Averaging 1:4 packs, these offer themed subsets such as Fieldwork, Legends, Notable At-Bats, Rookies, Throwback Jerseys, and Walk-Offs. Looking back, Instant Impacts pinpoints the emergence of 50 superstars from their early days in the league.

2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball

Meanwhile, paying tribute to the all-time bombs, Longball Legends (1:8 packs) highlights 50 of the best home runs ever hit. Again going back to '83, the 1983 Topps Baseball (1:4 packs) celebration moves to current rookies and All-Stars.

2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball

Each insert can also be found in Blue, Black (#/299), Gold (#/50), Red (#/10) and Platinum (1/1) versions.

2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball Autographs / Auto Relics

Mainly using the insert lines from the 2018 Topps Series 2 Baseball checklist, signed cards include 1983 Topps Baseball Autographs and Topps Salute Autographs (#/99 or less). As far as parallels, 1983 has Black (#/99 or less), Gold (#/50 or less), Red (#/25 or less - Hobby) and Platinum (1/1 - Hobby/Jumbo), while Salute features Red (#/25 or less) and Platinum (1/1).

User Reviews

  1. Looking forward to the longball leaders and instant impacts inserts.

    If that votto is any indication of the memorial camo cards I can say they are ridiculously ugly.

  2. I am not interested in home run leaders. Stats are on the back of each baseball card. I am interested getting more ball players on cards. I cannot field a 25 man roster. Topps has update sets after the season is over. Make rookie sets so we know who all these players are. Make them affordable for true baseball card collectors. Yeh, I have to keep on saying this because you people don’t want to do something to correct the problem. Some card company.

  3. Why in the world is it taking so long to bring series 2 and total 2018 topps baseball card sets?
    The season has already started and I can’t even field a 25 man roster. Series 1 came out in April and I cannot understand why the complete set of 2018 Topps baseball cards can’t come out sooner. Come on and get with it!!!!

  4. I hope that they’ll have a checklist card or base of Albert Pujols with his 600 home run. They didn’t for some reason last year in update like they did for his 500. Any info on checklist?

  5. The set releases in June so the checklist should be out about a week before then.
