The most expensive brand in the hobby throws a change-up with 2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Japan Edition Baseball.

Unlike the main Transcendent MLB, the Asian-exclusive product focuses solely on Japanese greats Ichiro Suzuki and Shohei Ohtani. The overall production is only 50 boxes and baseball cards aren't the only perk waiting for collectors. Prices are steep at around $20,000 per box.

2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Japan Edition Base

Comprising the majority of the checklist in 2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Japan Edition Baseball, the 50-card base set maintains the high-end quality of the line, including silver frames and a print run of just 50 copies. The full set breaks down into 30 highlight cards for Ohtani and 20 highlight cards for Ichiro. All 50 cards come in each box.

2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Japan Edition Autographs

Also borrowing the design from the primary set, the gold-framed Transcendent Collection Autograph insert offers on-card signatures for Ichiro and Ohtani. All signed versions are numbered to five copies or less, and each box promises a pair of one-of-one parallels. The 2018 Topps Transcendent Collection Japan Edition Baseball parallel lineup consists of Emerald (#/3), Red (1/1) and Platinum (1/1).
