Product Details

User Rating:

Reserved for just a select few that occupy the highest of high-end MLB collecting, 2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball returns for another season. The luxury set packs over 50 autographs per box and an exclusive invitation for a party featuring Mike Trout.

Tying into the 35th anniversary of 1983 Topps, production is capped at just 83 boxes. Final pricing is similar to the 2017 boxes that retailed for over $20,000 each.

2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball Base / Sketch

Using 1983 Topps as the main design inspiration, 2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball includes a silver-framed base set. Every box contains the entire 50-card set, with each card numbered to 83 copies.

Collectors can also find a full set of the 83 Origins Sketch Reproductions (#/83) cards to go with their one hand-drawn Transcendent Moments Sketch (1/1).

2018 Topps Transcendent Baseball Autographs

The 2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball checklist is filled with many on-card signatures, as well. The bulk of these come in the Transcendent Collection Autographs line. Boxes promise 48 signed cards from the Base (#/25), Emerald (#/15) and Purple (#/10) versions. In addition, there are two autographs from the one-of-one Platinum or Red parallels.

All subjects have Image Variation Autographs with the same print runs and parallels as the base autograph set. These feature a new image and design for each player.

2018 Topps Transcendent

As the man of the hour, "The Millville Meteor" gets his own insert set via Mike Trout Through the Years Autographs. The one-of-one set offers one framed card per box and spans the Topps design history from 1952 to 2018.

Among the new choices in 2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Baseball, the Autographed 1952 SuperFractor set reimagines the classic '52 design with the Refractor finish associated with the ultimate modern chase. These come one per box.

Also debuting in 2018, the one-of-one 1983 Autograph Patch and 1983 Cut Signature Jumbo Relic Book cards combine to fall one per box.

Finally, topping off each five-figure box is an Oversized Cut Signature (1/1) card from a subject list that touches on some of the biggest names in sports, entertainment, politics and history.

User Reviews

  1. Great choice on the focus player this year. Can’t go wrong with Mike Trout. Not too impressed with the names in the Jumbo Cut Auto list though.

  2. What is the point? Who cares? What is so different about these cards vs. a high end product such as Museum? All vastly overpriced and underwhelming anyway, and this is the topper.

  3. Chris – is the difference is opportunity. You can get all of this easily by purchasing this product. With Museum you may need to purchase 10 cases and guaranteed to not get this type of content. In fact, the Mike Trout experience is probably worth more than any other experience so far. I also argue the cut list is the best of the 3 years.
