2018 Topps Throwback Thursday

Other than a fresh assortment of cards, the general format remains the same for the third season, with each mini-set building on the total 2018 Topps Throwback Thursday Baseball line. Normally priced at $19.99 per six-card set, the releases are sold for seven days, and then they are removed from the site. From there, a final production number is announced and cards are printed and shipped. The price includes free shipping, which is generally expected to go out three to five business days after the selling window closes. Collectors can also get a bundle discount by purchasing three sets for $49.99.

User Reviews

  1. cool front of card designs, backs the same (no player info) across the set.

  2. Topps would have likely cultivated a great following had they focused on better retro designs. Many of this years designs are so poor, I can’t see purchasing. Losing interest.
